Mount Kimbie have announced they’ll be curating their own version of the DJ-Kicks series, including one of their own new tracks ‘Southgate’.
Due for release on 28th September, the 23-track mix was inspired by a mini-run of DJ gigs that they played with Actress.
“It was an interesting and challenging experience, and I learnt a lot on the six dates we did,” says the duo’s Kai Campos, who explaining that plenty of the tracks he was playing during those gigs make it into the mix.
Their own ‘DJ-Kicks’ track was made specially for the mix and was initially influenced by Stanislav Tolkachev and Alexis Perala, who are both also included. The mix also includes music from the likes of Terrence Dixon, Severed Heads, Marco Bernardi and Object Blue.
