John Talabot to Helm Next 'DJ-Kicks'

It seems like Barcelona producer John Talabot just hasn't quit since he released last year's XLR8R Pick'd ƒIN; the producer has embarked on multiple tours, performed at a number of festivals, shared a good amount of new music, and now, is next in line to issue a DJ-Kicks mix album for !K7's ongoing series. The 27-track set is scheduled to drop on October 29, and will arrive complete with a brand-new original production from its creator, called "Without You," which is described as having a "housey feeling." John Talabot's eclectic selections range from the likes of Andy Stott, Wraetlic, and Locked Groove to Motor City Drum Ensemble, Axel Boman, and Madteo. The DJ explains the motive behind his track choices, saying, "I thought that it would be good if people could discover what my influences are, where I've come from, the people that I admire, and tracks that have been important to me over the last 10 years. Plus, [there are] some tracks [from] my label that have never been released." He goes on to explain that his DJ-Kicks entry isn't the most danceable mix, and that it progressively "chills out." But before we can hear exactly how it does that, the tracklist for John Talabot's forthcoming mix album can be found below, where a "preview" is also included. More info is available here.
