Five illustrious remixes of Population One’s ‘Hippnotic Culture’ 2LP by the Detroit minimalist himself. Kicking off with a 20th Anniversary Mix of ‘Rush Hour’, the track that inspired our company name! Big big tip and a great honor… Play It Loud.

Population One, also known as Terrence Dixon, offered a first remix of his mysterious, minimal Detroit track ‘Rush Hour’ for the celebration of the label’s 10th anniversary and now blesses us with new takes on five ‘Hippnotic Culture’ album tracks. The impressive ‘Hippnotic Culture’ LP was originally released in 1995 on the long defunct Utensil label, which was run by Claude Young.

The truly deadly album from Terrence Dixon on Rush Hour Music is out! Under the Population One codename, Detroit citizen, Terrence Dixon, has realised some of his most vivid, esoteric portals to the Motor City mindset. ‘Theater Of A Confused Mind’ is Dixon’s 2nd album in this mode and marks a timely return to Rush Hour twenty years after his debut album, ‘Unknown Black Shapes’, and the ‘Hippnotic Culture’ 2LP, whose ‘Rush Hour’ track inspired our company’s name.

In both the literal and figurative sense of the album’s title – theatre as a space for performance or an operating table, and equally in terms of psychogeography – ‘Theater Of A Confused Mind’ plays out an affected Afro-futurist narrative over eight tracks of haunting and furtive sci-fi techno. It’s riddled with cryptic connotation, systemic from the track titles to its deft, subtle mix down, all drawing upon the city’s emotions, industrial architectures and post-industrial panoramas to better express it’s sense of soul.

Between opener ‘Out Of Control’, where Dixon is the voice-in-Detroit’s-head, a dark interpreter on a dérive whispering to
himself “Detroit, Out of Control/As I Walk Through The Mists Of Detroit/And You Don’t Know What We Be”, and through to the mind-blowing sci-fi projections of closer ‘All Of A Sudden’, it renders a unique perception of Detroit’s enduring export. Tracing circuitry like grid-iron avenues, Dixon deviates down back alleys, through warehouses and across mental space, divining the ghosts of jazz in the coiled double bass of ‘For Only You’, or long lost SOS transmissions in the tribal patterns of ‘Code Urgent’, whilst the prickling electro of ‘Battle For Space’ condenses that fractured flux at the album’s core, and the kaotic harmonies of ‘My Own Shadow’ encapsulate a Kafkaseque sense of raving paranoia.

In light of recent news that Terrence is set to retire from making music, the already incredible ‘Theater Of A Confused Mind’ is imparted with an ever more impending sense of gravity. It’s little short of Population One’s magnum opus, and should be treated with due respect.
