Photek to Mix Next DJ-Kicks, Shares New Track

As was first reported late last year, drum & bass and jungle icon Photek (a.k.a. Rupert Parkes) will be at the helm of the next installment of !K7's DJ-Kicks mix album series. Following the awesome DJ set put forth by Scuba, Photek's mix features 19 tracks of fresh, classic, and unheard material—including two new productions from Parkes himself—that traverse across many club-ready genres throughout its hour-plus runtime. The mixmaster has said of his DJ-Kicks, "I wanted to create one of those classic listening experiences. With a mix like this, you can either bang it with the most current dancefloor tunes, or you can put a theme into it, or you can make it a journey. I was thinking about the classic LTJBukem mixtapes that I first came across in '92 and '93 and how epic they were. There was such a range of styles on there, they were so timeless and had real character. They had some personality. That’s what I wanted to capture with my DJ-Kicks mix." Before we can all hear exactly what Photek crafted, he's shared a collaborative track that he produced with Kuru, which you can check out along with the tracklist, below.
