Well, that was weird
Kenny Dixon Jr. – aka Moodymann – is known for being a Detroit legend and one of the most idiosyncratic producers on the scene. Last weekend, on 3 June, he brought the selections to Field Day’s Resident Advisor stage. While his persona can be described as outspoken and unconventional, there was a certain track during his selections that divided some of his fans.
Upon playing Kings of Leon’s 2008 hit Sex On Fire, confusion and bewilderment brewed amongst the crowd with some festival-goers walking out, whilst others sang along. The overall consensus, however, was one of disapproval. Naturally, the internet picked up on this to mock the Mahogani Music boss for taking it too far. One Twitter user has described it as a “stinker”.
See the fan reactions below.

Heard Moodymann played mask off and sex on fire during his set last night…all about the multi genres but there’s a time and a place.

I don’t mean to alarm anyone…but Moodymann just played Sex On Fire and he’s pretty much got away with it.

I don’t care now cool Moodymann is. It’s never acceptable to play ‘Sex On Fire’ by Kings Of Leon.
Definition of stinker
