The 26-track mix features new material from the man himself as well as unreleased tracks from rising Canadian DJ-producer Peach, Pavilion and Hessle Audio affiliate, Ploy. Beyond that, the release includes a blend of hidden gems that will become available digitally for the first time.
Featuring numerous genres such as dancehall, EBM, street soul, jungle, house and more, Vynehall uses his bold mixing style to put together a coherent and comprehensive blend of adventurous music.
Speaking about the ‘DJ-Kicks’ mix, Vynehall said: “I wanted to approach this more like a compilation than a stand-alone ‘mix’. To me, compiling a 'DJ-Kicks' is a significant statement of intent and representation, so with that in mind, I thought more about the selection than the mix. Being given the responsibility to select work from artists I admire, some of which have only ever been released on their first vinyl presses many years ago, was a task I didn’t take lightly.”
Leon Vynehall's 'DJ Kicks' compilation will be available on February 1, 2019.
