It’s always a pleasure when DJ-Kicks artists challenge themselves for the new piece of music they create for their mix. In keeping with the dark, futuristic feel of his set, Maceo Plex departs slightly from the disco and bassline sounds for which he’s highly regarded and delivers a complex and reflective track in “Galactic Cinema.”
Beatport will have a single featuring both “Galactic Cinema” and another DJ-Kicks exclusive track “Mind on Fire” on April 15th. The full DJ-Kicks mix comes out April 29th/30th.
With 2012 ranking as one of the most fertile years so far in DJ-Kicks history, we’re eager to get started with what is already looking like another packed year for the series. We’re pleased to announce that Maceo Plex is taking the reins for a fantastic mix, due at the end of April.
Maceo’s mix aims to highlight the sounds that he believes represent the future of electronic music. To do so, he’s dug deep in his vinyl collection for an impeccable selection of tracks with a timeless sound, spanning the last 20 years of dance music, none of which are currently available digitally outside of the DJ-Kicks mix. Many of the tracks appear as exclusive edits by Maceo himself, adding to the overall freshness of the mix.
DJ-Kicks will be released April 29th (April 30th in the US) on CD, 2xLP (w/ CD included), and digital download. For full release info (and audio coming soon), keep an eye on http://www.dj-kicks.com/maceoplex.
