Despite being a vintage 12 months for electronic music in most respects, the compilations of 2013 have been the Achilles heel of the year with only a handful of releases by some of the more esteemed compilation series really grabbing our attention and delivering the ‘wow’ factor. One of those series that has consistently impressed has undoubtedly been IK7’s DJ-Kicks and so you can imagine our excitement at the announcement of the them hooking up with fellow DT favourites Brandt Brauer Frick for their next edition.

A quick look at the tracklist shows an eclectic smorgasbord of talent harvested by the Berlin trio for their mix with acts as varied as African musician William Onyeabor and Theo Parris making appearances in the opening stanzas before becoming more dancefloor orientated with efforts from the likes of  meteorically rising producer French Fries and Cosmin TRG.

Speaking on the mix one third of the trio Paul Frick explains that the mix might be different to what fans may have expected stating: “I definitely think the mix shows a different side of us. I think people will be surprised. Some songs are certainly very different from what we do, things we would love to express, but can’t or don’t want to do it the way it’s done in these songs. But actually you can hear a lot of elements that are similar to something we did or will do, but in our songs we mostly look for different sound aesthetics and would combine that element with something else. And the switch between 4/4 kicks and more broken beats is something we do a lot, on our records and on this mix.”

Also set to feature exclusive new cuts from artists such as Dollkraut, Cosmin TRG and Brandt Brauer Frick we cannot wait for the release to land on February 24th.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
