Special Request lined up for next 'DJ-Kicks' mix

Special Request, aka Paul Woolford, is up next for the 'DJ-Kicks' mix series.

The DJ and producer includes a selection of Special Request cuts in the mix, including 'Vellichor' and remixes of FC Kahuna's 'Hayling' and μ-Ziq's 'Twangle Frent'. There's also Tim Reaper VIP mixes of Special Request's 'Pull Up' and 'Elysian Fields'.

Tunes by AceMo, Speedy J, Krystal Klear and Morgan Geist also feature in the 25-track mix, as well as a John Morales mix of Alicia Myers' 'Right Here Right Now'.

Talking about the mix, which comes out on March 19, Special Request said: “I have wanted to create my own edition of DJ-Kicks since hearing Claude Young, Stacey Pullen and Carl Craig’s contributions back in the mid-nineties. I always saw the series as a benchmark of quality and a time-stamped gateway into an artist’s state of mind.

"For this volume, I wanted to focus on lush melodics. I kept that as a constant thread throughout, choosing only records I cherish. It’s important to me that this mix is playable in multiple contexts: it’s not a “current snapshot” by any means, more of a chronicle of some of my all-time favourites. Accordingly I have included obscure gems such as Psyance “Gates Of Heaven”, Ron Allen’s 1992 tear-jerker, alongside the lush instrumentation and positive messages of Detroit disco legend Alicia Myers, rubbing shoulders with the recent instant classic “Sequence Of Life” by AceMo. It comes handmade with love to you all."
