Style and influences
Moodymann is considered to have "developed hybrid modes of recording and performance incorporating analog and digital media — the playing of 'real' instruments with 'pushing buttons live'."In 2011, his "Dem Young Sconies" was chosen by NPR as one of the 10 tracks that define the Detroit techno sound, and Denise Dalphond wrote that Moodymann captured the gritty sound on the track.
