We're now in week two of the 27!K7 Exclusives series, and are already feeling extremely lucky to have contributions from many of our favorite artists. This week's EP features a new collaborative track from Wolf + Lamb and Soul Clap. Ever since their amazing DJ-Kicks together, we've known that it's something special when these guys work together. The EP also includes a heavy new track from Berlin's Brandt Brauer Frick. Remember to check back each Tuesday through October 16th; we'll have more great music for you.
As a part of the ongoing celebration of 27 years of !K7 Records, today sees the launch of 27!K7 Exclusives, a four week series of exclusive music from !K7's artists and recent DJ-Kicks contributors. Every Tuesday through October 16th, a new double-sided EP will be posted for free download at http://www.k7-27.com/tracks. Starting things off today is a new track from Motor City Drum Ensemble, backed with a cover of a Danish pop hit from When Saints Go Machine. Check back Tuesday Nov. 2nd for another pair of tracks, and thanks for 27 great years!
Digitalism's swaggering and exclusive-filled DJ-Kicks provided the soundtrack to many a sweaty dance party this summer. Having hit some of the hottest festival stages this summer, this German duo is taking back to the road for a string of more intimate DJ engagements. Expect to hear some of the new tracks featured on their DJ-Kicks, floor-tested gems from their crates, and likely some surprises.

When speaking with Jens Moelle and İsmail Tüfekçi, the two men behind Digitalism, we learned that they're really quite big fans of DJ-Kicks. Perhaps their love of the series explains why they dug so deep for their own mix, blessing us with a heap of exclusive, unreleased Digitalism material, as well as a new edit, a new remix, two "club weapons" which have appeared in their sets for years but have yet to see an official release, and of course a connoisseur's selection of tracks that give a window into their "sonic universe." We thought it was only fair to match the duo's generosity and offer a brand new track to download. Grab "A New Drug" below, and check out the full album tracklist. Digitalism's DJ-Kicks will be available July 10th on CD, LP & digital download, and the group will be touring internationally in support of the release. Tracklist
