New Volume Of DJ Kicks The Exclusives Due In February

One of the most enjoyable parts of assembling the DJ-Kicks series is being able to hear the exclusive new track (or tracks, as the case my be) from the compiling artist. Each new volume contains at least one piece of music not available anywhere else, from the elite list of artists who have contributed to the series. Six years ago, we collected DJ-Kicks tracks from artists including Kruder & Dorfmeister, Carl Craig, Thievery Corporation and others on the first collection of DJ-Kicks Exclusives. In 2012, we'll be collecting exclusive tracks from the most recent mixes, spanning the last five years. The new volume of DJ-Kicks The Exclusives (out in February) will feature music only available on DJ-Kicks mixes from the likes of Gold Panda, Juan MacLean, Four Tet, Hot Chip, and more. Despite the eclectic list of contributing artists, the standard of quality for the music they have made for their mixes speaks for itself, and the tracks complement each other for a cohesive listen in their full un-mixed format. 2012 also marks 27 years of !K7 Records as a company, we we'll be celebrating both the label and the DJ-Kicks series all year long with a series of events, projects, and special promotions. We hope you can join the celebration! Tracklist: 1. Four Tet - Pockets 2. Henrik Schwarz - Imagination Limitation 3. Hot Chip - My Piano 4. Chromeo - I Can’t Tell You Why 5. The Juan MacLean - Feel So Good 6. Holden - Triangle Folds 7. Kode9 - You Don’t Wash (Dub) 8. Apparat - Sayulita 9. Soul Clap - Lonely C feat. Charles Levine 10. Motor City Drum Ensemble - L.O.V.E. 11. Scuba - M.A.R.S. 12. Gold Panda - An Iceberg Hurled Northward Through Clouds 13. Photek & Kuru - Fountainhead
