Prins Thomas Remixes Seth Troxler & Tom Trago’s DJ-Kicks Exclusive Track

K7324EP1_2500pxlsSeth Troxler and Tom Trago's DJ-Kicks exclusive track (as ‘T&T Music Factory’) has gotten the remix treatment from Norse producer and Full Pupp owner Prins Thomas and Maxi Mill. ‘De Natte Cel’ was originally aired within luminary Troxler’s contribution to the DJ Kicks series from October 2015.

Prins Thomas blows some warm Balearic air into the package as his reworking churns and gathers tension throughout. Rush Hour affiliate Maxi Mill then completes the record and propels the original forward with popping percussion and a sharp, purposeful bass line that caps off another fine addition to the DJ Kicks catalogue and a fitting homage to a bona fide institution of Dutch dance music. The ‘De Natte Cel’ remix single is available on 12" and digital formats on 29th April 2016. Pre-orders are available now.

Tracklist:

B1 > Prins Thomas Disko Miks

Hear A New Track From Seth Troxler’s DJ-Kicks Recorded With Tom Trago

Trox_Kick_004 Named in tribute to famed Amsterdam club Trouw, "De Natte Cel" is an exclusive collaboration between Seth Troxler and Tom Trago, taken from the former's forthcoming DJ-Kicks mix. The title is derived from Dutch slang for a trip to the restroom, and refers to the club's basement shower room which became the setting for some legendary dance music parties.

Troxler will in fact be launching his DJ-Kicks in Amsterdam with an all-night party at Closure on the date of the mix's release, October 16th. DJ-Kicks is available for pre-order via digital retailers, bandcamp, and the !K7 Store.

2H0A9095Despite being one of the most colorful and outspoken personalities in the dance music community, Seth Troxler is dead serious when it comes to music.

Troxler and company have put together something special for the release of his DJ-Kicks mix: an all-night party during the annual ADE festival in Amsterdam, featuring an epic eight hour set from the man himself. Tickets are available now via Resident Advisor.

Seth Troxler Mixes Final DJ-Kicks of 2015

Trox_Kick_0042015 has been a huge year for DJ-Kicks, marking both 20 years of the series as well as our 50th release. But far from slowing down, we're already looking ahead to another incredible mix from one of our favorite artists.

Over the past decade, Seth Troxler has become a visionary and authentic voice in dance music, his jovial personality cutting through the noise and continually playing by his own rules. Growing up between Detroit and Chicago, his musical education carries enviable credentials, with his stepdad a local radio personality who championed the early sounds of house music.

True to Troxler’s character, the mix has a whimsical nature and a thoughtful and timeless narrative, bearing a tenacious episode for the DJ-Kicks series that gives a true insight into the man behind the well-preened moustache and cowboy antics. “It might seem obvious but to be a successful DJ, you have to be really into music," Troxler points out. "Collecting music is my life. This is a proper DJ mix - a house mix. It’s good music that works to listen to at any time.”

“For my DJ Kicks mix I wanted to do something that was honest," he goes on. "I went out in the morning, micro-dosed myself and did all these errands around town. Then I came home at night and did the mix one take. I wanted to curate something for people to easily listen to, that was nice, and funny and got you in the mood to do your homework, or drive that hour long trip when you need to go somewhere. I see this mix as a gay man named Rodney. Or a big black woman named Birtha.”

Seth Troxler's DJ-Kicks will be available October 16th on CD / LP / digital. Pre-orders are available now via iTunes and the !K7 store.
