Poll: What’s Your Favorite DJ-Kicks?

40% off the top five DJ-Kicks, as voted by YOU

Over 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).

John Talabot Gets Personal On New DJ-Kicks Mix

Barcelona-based musician John Talabot has been one of our favorite new voices in electronic music ever since his productions first started making waves in the underground. We’re extremely proud to announce that Talabot is mixing the newest edition of the DJ-Kicks series, out at the end of October.

Talabot’s mix isn’t a typical club mix. Instead, he’s dug deep in his own collection to present a mix of formative music in his musical development, as well as snapshots of his peers and current influences. “It represents my musical world,” says Talabot, “the sounds that I’ve been into over the years.”

DJ-Kicks will be released October 28th (October 29th in the US) on CD, LP & digital download. See a video preview with new music below, and read the full tracklist after the jump.
