!K7's DJ-Kicks mix series has been killing it since 1995, and the tradition is set to continue in 2016. For the first compilation of the year, !K7 has pulled off a major coup, securing Detroit enigma and cratedigger extraordinaire Moodymann for his first official multi-artist mix. (The truly committed fans will know the DJ's Moodymann Collection from 2006, but that was all his own music.) For his DJ-Kicks volume - as a CD compilation and a 12″ vinyl triple album - Moodymann has put together a formidable tracklist. The tracklist certainly suggests a classic Moodymann set, moving through hazy hip hop, dashes of broken beat, soul, and house music. In addition to cuts from his own creative circle, the mix features 11 exclusive Moodymann edits. Like everything Kenny Dixon Jr. touches, DJ-Kicks showcases the taste, skill, and soul of a dance music original. It features cuts from Jai Paul, Anne Clark, Nightmares On Wax, Flying Lotus, Cody ChesnuTT, Yaw, Little Dragon etc.CD - 30 Tracks3LP - Triple LP with 19 Tracks.
