DJ-KICKS (2LP + CD)
2x12" Vinyl + cd D
Next up to close out a hefty year of DJ-Kicks releases is one Daniel Avery, bringing with him two exclusive new tracks and a host of techno heavy goods. The double vinyl release includes the mix-CD.
In his own words: "To me, the most appealing thing about electronic music is that it requires time and patience to fully enjoy. Itís about becoming lost in the repetition and the atmosphere. The warmth of the kick drum. Itís important to remember to take a breath in this world. The studio and the club can offer similar experiences in that regard but it never feel like itís running away from things. Itís almost the opposite: itís in those moments where we stop that we can feel the most alive. Weíre constantly being told that modern generations have no attention span but itís simply not true. There is more out there to distract us but we have not changed as humans. Kids now want to go and listen to a DJ play for ten hours and become locked in their world. A mix CD, like an album, is designed to be listened to from beginning to end. Itís something I still firmly believe in." [info from label]
