Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival x DJ-Kicks This Weekend!

As we continue to celebrate 27 years of !K7 Records, we’ve partnered with the good folks at Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival to help curate an line-up featuring some of our favorite musicians. The festival takes place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (N. 6th St. to be precise) Friday and Saturday November 9th & 10th. Our stage will be on Friday the 9th at Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 North 6th St.) and will feature the amazing talents of Photek and Gold Panda, both of whom have released incredible DJ-Kicks mixes themselves, as well as a DJ set from The Rapture, Baltimore’s master DJ / Producer Karizma, San Francisco’s Grenier (who has several tracks on Photek’s DJ-Kicks as DJG) and Brooklyn’s own DJ Still Life. Things are kicking off at 9:00 and going way late, so come through and party with us!

Single day and double day tickets are still available, and give you access to all participating Festival venues for the day of your ticket. The full festival line-up is available at http://bemf.meanredproductions.com, and set times for the DJ-Kicks stage are below.

Digitalism Ready New DJ-Kicks With Plenty Of Exclusives

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.
