Photek Mixes The First DJ-Kicks Of 2012

It’s not easy to keep the information that one of the foremost legends of electronic music will be making a new contribution to the DJ-Kicks series under wraps. In fact, the underground has been buzzing since a new Photek track popped up on the tracklist for the DJ-Kicks Exclusives collection more than a month ago. So while the identity of the first artists to create a DJ-Kicks in 2012 might not exactly be a secret, we finally have the juicy details for you.

This is one for the ages, folks. With four exclusive new Photek tracks, as well as contributions from some of the pillars of the current bass music scene, including Pinch, Boddika, Sepalcure & others (full tracklist below), this is a mix that we’ll be listening to for a long time to come. You can hear the track “Fountainhead,” a collaboration w/ Kuru, below. Make sure you’re connected w/ Photek on his Twitter & Facebook for further developments. 2012 is going to be an incredible year, and we’re just getting started.

Photek’s DJ-Kicks will be released April 3rd in the US, March 26th everywhere else.
