Fucking fractals. The term "fractal" was first used by mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975. Mandelbrot based it on the Latin frāctus meaning "broken" or "fractured", and used it to extend the concept of theoretical fractional dimensions to geometric patterns in nature


Lately I've been getting into his sound more and more. He has a signature sound and released a lot of music, but I also noticed that some tracks sound identical. Quite a couple of tracks are either different versions of the same track or use similar sounds. Here's a list:

Radio Room (Badge Of Honor, 2013)
Inside The Radio Room, (12,000 Miles Of Twilight, 2017)

The Atlantic (Badge Of Honor, 2013)

Operation Acoustic (Badge Of Honor, 2013)
Temporary Insanity (Temporary Insanity EP, 2016)

one of the greatest ever, totally unique, a real avant-garde voice of electronic music, especially, of course, of Detroit Techno.
a real father and leader of -TRUEST- minimal techno.


One term I would use to conjure up the images provoked by Terrence Dixon's music is bizarre. Incongruous sound design, authenticity and dedication. It's like a black leather couch placed in the middle of an all white and sterile living room. Doesn't fit, doesn't have to, and doesn't want to begin with.

Given the unorthodox approach to music production, you'll seldom find his tunes topping charts, but then again, techno was never about the charts aynway. I have never heard a track of his that sounded like it was produced for the current clubbing season. His sound is basically jarring in relation to its surroundings. I mean that as this highest possible accolade.

There is nothing out there that imitates (or emulates) his approach to minimal techno, and Terrence Dixon does not come across (doesn't even try to) like any other producer as well. As previously pointed out, that might be a double edged dagger. From one angle, his legitimacy is so hardcore that his own body of work cannot be contextualised into a cohesive DJ set. it's too idiosyncratic. But then again, due to that fact, Terrence Dixon has accumulated tons of respect from the more seasoned techno listeners. His belief in what he does has not gone by unnoticed, and his loyal fan base loves him for it. Plain and simple.

Pulling a living room session with a box of his records is a puzzling experience. It turns into pleasure later on.
If you want instant gratification, you know where to look. If you are looking to build a strong, long lasting relationship with techno music, check out Terrence Dixon and his ridiculously good Population One alias.
If you want to please crowds, you know the records to chose. If you want to challenge dance floors, drop a Terrence Dixon 12".
If you are interested in minimalism beyond its trendy clicks, cuts and pastes, you ought to stop here.

There is absolutely nothing conforming about his music and attitude. Yet there is a lot to adore. Massive respoect for all the great releases.


Terrence Dixon is a visionary who makes Techno music on the emphasis of uniqueness and experimentation - no gimmicks - no compromise - True to the spirit of Detroit!



Terrence Dixon is one of the best techno producers out there. Minimal , dark , hypnotic, surrealistic, poetic, straight to the point, Detroit. Each of his releases is a radical statement of groove. techno sorcerer, electrician poet. Probably another time traveller like Jeff Mills...

I've been following Dixon's output since his first appearance on Tresor with his debut album back in 2000. His production is really surprising and strange, to say the least. It sounds like he doesn't give a flying fuck about any kind of rules on how music is created and how it 'should' sound. Most of the tracks are hard, dark, monotonous and brave. Yes, brave. You would find those difficult to blend in with anything, well, except of his own work. Some are even impossible to mix because of those hidden surprises he likes so much.
Looking at his producer career we see he has hit the point when he was no longer needed (5 years without releasing any new material can burry the artist alive) until Andy Vaz dragged him out into the sunlight with his Minimalism III on Background, shortly followed by his second album on Yore. And there he goes again.
The previous two years were especially productive - release after release, two albums, the full-force revival of his Population One moniker which by the way sounds completely out of this planet, as well the start of his own label reduction. Well done Terrence and thank you for your existence. Proud owner of the whole box of vinyl of this great artist.

Understated and underrated Detroit DJ and Producer, Terrence Dixon has been making records since the mid-90s under his own name and also as Population One on labels such as Metroplex, Tresor and Utensil Records. Part of the so-called 2nd wave of Detroit techno producers, Dixon built on the blueprint of minimal Detroit techno laid down by Robert Hood and created his own distinct sound. Experimental minimal electronic music, hard dancefloor techno, and even some deep house, whatever style he chooses he always manages to impart his own unique stamp to every release. Great forward thinking electronic music underlining Detroit's continuing importance to electronic music today.
