Kerri Chandler is in charge of the next DJ-Kicks mix, out on October 20.
The New Jersey-born DJ and producer is using the release to showcase the artists who've inspired his career, in turn moving away from club sounds.
The 21-track mix includes Kerri's own 'Stop My Wasting My Time, Roy Ayers' 'Liquid Love', an instrumental of Fantasy Three's 'It's Your Rock' and Kiki Willows' '3 AM'.
Kerri said: “It’s like me taking you for a walk in New York. Like a music tour guide, we go through Brooklyn, Soho, midtown, the Bronx and Uptown, and parts of New Jersey.”
The Madhouse boss is also heading out on a tour to support the release, visiting Dublin, London, Munich, Amsterdam, San Francisco and more.
