Dixon, has accomplished worldwide recognition, near universal acclaim and total freedom when it comes to artistic decision making. 

As a DJ, he cuts a striking figure behind decks, rising from Berlin beginnings among the original pioneers of electronic music. His ear for the perfect mix eventually brought down Resident Advisor’s Top DJs Poll, after taking out first place for its last four years running. 

Over a career, he has evolved his sound into something visionary, running renowned record label Innervisions with Frank Wiedemann and Kristian Rädle of Ȃme.

Legendary remixer with stellar edits on high profile artists such as Depeche Mode, LCD Soundsystem, Fela Kuti, The XX and many more which reveal his genre-bending take on today’s dance music.

However, Dixon’s ambition has driven a calling into wider fields of fashion and technology, expanding what it means to be a contemporary innovator.

His holistic interest in nightlife culture meant pushing the clubbing envelope further. He has cofounded fashion label Together We Dance Alone, with its creative director Ana Ofak. The brand’s vision translates clubwear into the digital age and gazes at a future melded with machines.  Dixon’s fashion conscience has since synced up with some of the best in the industry. He was asked to provide soundtracks for four seasons of Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy runway shows and in 2018 was handpicked as a muse for Virgil Abloh’s first season of Louis Vuitton’s Men’s.

With these projects building up a layered approach to clubbing, Dixon set to work on his technology platform Transmoderna. Transmoderna is a hybrid collective situated at the intersection between electronic music and digital arts. Born out of curiosity, it counter-acts the peripheric position the virtual inhabits in culture. It was the first venture of its kind to offer a real-time virtual stream, to combine contemporary and digital art in a virtual exhibition and to implement AI-based programming into a dance music video.

Using music to melt through other art forms, Dixon’s strength is found in his transcendent dancefloor moments. Echoed in a flawless aesthetic, his performances feel both safe and unpredictable, with this singular sense of balance seeing his global appeal widen year after year.
