DJ Koze - DJ Kicks
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
DJ Koze - with his friendly and sometimes slightly melancholic take on the world - is one of the greatest auteurs of club music today, and one of the few internationally active DJs who dares to make music that has relevance beyond the dance floor.
During the 70-minute journey on his DJ Kicks - Kosi Kos manages to establish a uniform color even though genres alternate in a way that is rarely heard on a mix record: the stripped down hip hop of Madlib, brutalist Berghain techno, timeless songwriting, floating indie-pop and outlier numbers that oscillate between absurdity and melancholy.
DJ Koze's disregard for the stylistic yoke presents him with an immense challenge. Hence, almost all the tracks are more or less edited, and one is fully rhymed (Session Victim: Hyuwee). Koze rambles on here himself: "I didn't want to kick around sophisticated knowledge, but rather try and weave together some good gems that would make sense to anyone, even people who aren't necessarily music nerds".
Heavyweight double vinyl produced by K7 Records in 2015. Gatefold sleeve.
