Renowned compilation series, DJ Kicks, will see the revered and provocative DJ Seth Troxler command the latest edition of the series.
As ever, he’s been broad in his selection and had this to say about the mix, “I wanted to curate something for people to easily listen to, that was nice, and funny and got you in the mood to do your homework, or drive that hour long trip when you need to go somewhere. I see this mix as a gay man named Rodney. Or a big black woman named Birtha.”
This mix appears to be another exciting amalgam of personal exclusives and rare but certified classics, pitting lengthy minimal grooves against fluid vocal house and spaced-out tech house. It’s a perfect match for the DJ Kicks series — a mix series that rarely disappoints.
It’s due out 16th October 2015 on !K7 and available to pre-order now.
