Techno vanguardist Terrence Dixon to wear <em>Badge of Honor</em> on new album

Terrence Dixon, the fringe Detroit producer behind one of our very favourite albums of 2012, will close out the year with a new full-length.

Dixon’s no spring chicken, having released sporadic 12″s of futurist techno since the mid-1990s. His landmark release was 2000’s Tresor debut From The Far Future, clocked with hindsight as a huge influence on the likes of Actress and the Modern Love set. He followed up last year with the exceptional From The Far Future Part 2 – one of the most frazzled and immersive techno records we’d heard in a long time.

Thus far, Dixon’s 2013 has brought us the Giant Robot EP for Monique Musique, released under his Population One alias with a remix from Actress on the flip. Dixon’s also been M.D. of new imprint Reductionwhich has put out a string of Population One releases over the last twelve months.

Propitious news: Dixon will release a new album before the year is out. The vinyl-only Badge Of Honor is due in mid-December, and promises 15 tracks of groggy, pie-eyed techno with a sci-fi bent. Surface Records, who released Dixon’s ‘Lost At Sea’ 12″ earlier this year, will handle the release.

Badge Of Honor will arrive in December 2013. In the absence of any sound clips, From The Far Future Part II is available to stream below.
