Small waves often indicate the sign of the times. Though the blogroll picks up genres well ahead of the curve, it's movement in the classic brands that truly prove adoption. We've grown to know and love lo-fi for more than just the feels. A truly unique take on the house sound has sparked a movement that's borderline emo in the best possible way. The latest DJ-Kicks confirms the validity of this trending sound, proving lo-fi has a place at the table.
Pioneers in the recorded mix, !K7 Records, have been running the concept series since 95. Reserved for selektas who've proven themselves as timeless in underground music, DJ-Kicks is an exclusive milestone coveted in the dance circuit. Recent runnings include house icon Kerri Chandler, Life and Death boss DJ Tennis, and Kompakt founder Michael Mayer. In short, list of DJ-Kicks is a good reflection of rave royalty.
Due out in mid-July, Seinfeld's 21-track mix and vinyl double pack reflect an evolution from his roots and experience on the decks that can only be gained on the road. Centered around a pulsing original titled 'Typeless', Seinfeld ups the ante with an infectious driving groove. Placed in the mix shortly after the half, the chopped vocal melody bridges the gaps in his increasingly diverse discography.
Following the standard format, !K7 is prepping a classic mix CD to pair with a vinyl double pack. Packed with exclusives, names like FaltyDL, Project Pablo, Mor Elian and J. Albert make this an instant essential.
