Motor City Drum Ensemble to mix next DJ Kicks

Caribou – Leave House (Motor City Drum Ensemble Remix)

[audio:|titles=Caribou – Leave House (Motor City Drum Ensemble Remix)]

My favourite mixes within the everlasting !k7 DJ Kicks series are the ones by Thievery Corporation, Erland Oye, Truby Trio and James Holden. I still listen once every hangover sofa-surfing sunday afternoon.

After the last successful and praised mix-cd with Wolf+Lamb vs Soul Clap the Dj serious just announced the next DJ Kicks artist mix to be released in july. By none other but my favorite percussionist Danilo Plessow far often known by the pseudonym Motor City Drum Ensamble.

Danilo seems to take a journey in time (AphexTwin to Sun Ra to Mr Fingers classics) as well as across musical genres mixing together Afrobeat with Deep House as well as Jazz with Nu-disco. It seems like the !K7 once again found their perfect mixtape provider for the summer.
