DANIEL AVERY DJ-KICKS

Next up to cloaveryse out a hefty year of DJ-Kicks releases is one Daniel Avery, bringing with him two exclusive new tracks and a host of techno heavy goods.

In his own words: “To me, the most appealing thing about electronic music is that it requires time and patience to fully enjoy. It’s about becoming lost in the repetition and the atmosphere. The warmth of the kick drum.

It’s important to remember to take a breath in this world. The studio and the club can offer similar experiences in that regard but it never feel like it’s running away from things. It’s almost the opposite: it’s in those moments where we stop that we can feel the most alive.

We’re constantly being told that modern generations have no attention span but it’s simply not true. There is more out there to distract us but we have not changed as humans. Kids now want to go and listen to a DJ play for ten hours and become locked in their world. A mix CD, like an album, is designed to be listened to from beginning to end. It’s something I still firmly believe in.”

Hear Daniel Avery’s Huge Exclusive Club Track “A Mechanical Sky”

avery_mechanicalsky With his much anticipated DJ-Kicks mix due to drop next Friday, the man at its helm, London-based producer and DJ Daniel Avery, has today premiered the third and final of his original productions for the release in the form of the slow-burning, searing ‘A Mechanical Sky’. This follows ambient first taste ‘Space Echo’, accompanied by a striking animated visual from Kevin A. Freeney, and Avery’s collaboration with BleeD boss Volte-Face as Rote with ‘Look In Your Eyes’.

First teased in his Dekmantel set this August in front of a rapturous audience both at the festival and online via a live Boiler Room broadcast, ‘A Mechanical Sky’ comes in close to the album’s end point, segueing into the propulsive, shimmering techno of Edit-Select’s remix of ‘Cirklon Bells’ by Glaswegian duo Slam (aka Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle), before ‘Space Echo’ slows down the orbit, bringing proceedings to a close in a warm soundscape of disembodied, crystalline atmospherics.

Speaking about ‘A Mechanical Sky,’ Avery commented, "A club track made exclusively for the mix. It feels good to be back in the studio and making music again. Some finish lines are appearing on the horizon.

Daniel Avery’s DJ-Kicks is released 11th November 2016. Pre-orders are available now.

Daniel Avery’s Rote Project Premieres A New Track From DJ-Kicks

preffered-danielavery0616_gullick_q8a6823-pls-credit-steve-gullickWith his DJ-Kicks album just weeks away, London-based producer and DJ Daniel Avery shares another track from the highly anticipated release. In recent months Avery has teamed up with BleeD boss Volte-Face for a new collaborative project called Rote, and today he debuts their track ‘Look In Your Eyes’ via Thump, one of three new original Avery productions on the album alongside the ambient closing track ‘Space Echo,' and the slow-burning, driving intensity of ‘A Mechanical Sky’.

Avery's DJ-Kicks mix creates a hypnotic space focusing on “music by like-minded souls” from the outer reaches of techno including international talents Svreca, Rrose, Artefakt and IORI. It is a mix concerned with the idea of taking a collective breath and allowing records their own time.

Daniel Avery’s DJ-Kicks is released 11th November 2016. Pre-orders are available now.
