40% off the top five DJ-Kicks, as voted by YOUOver the course of nearly two decades of DJ-Kicks, we're always hearing which entries in the series stand out as favorites. And surprisingly, we get a wide variety of answers. From the sleek techno of the series' beginning (C.J. Bolland, Carl Craig) to the smoked-out sounds of late-90s mixes from Nightmares on Wax and Kid Loco, to recent mixes from rising stars like Maya Jane Coles and Motor City Drum Ensemble, everyone seems to have a few favorites that sit on the top of the heap. With new entries on the way from John Talabot and Breach, we thought we'd put the vote to you, and offer the top five DJ-Kicks as chosen by the fans for a special price on the !K7 store. The rules are simple: vote on up to five choices below*, and we'll offer the winning five mixes at an unbeatable discount of 40% off in the !K7 store. Voting ends Thursday October 17th, and we'll announce the results in the following week's newsletter (which, by the way, you can sign up for here).
