DJ-Kicks is ready to kick off its 25th year of putting out genre-defying mixes with someone who has made a career of doing just that, Mr Scruff. The upcoming DJ-Kicks compilation spans afro-beats, to jazz, soul, funk, house and everything in between.
The mix will include "3001: A Space Disco Remix," an exclusive from Mr Scruff and CyberPunkJazz, and Andy Ash's previously unreleased track "Ease Yourself." The mix compilation will have 31 tracks in total.
Mr Scruff, AKA Andy Carthy, has been active since the mid-1990s. He has released his music primarily on Ninja Tune and Ninja Tuna, his collaborative label with Ninja Tune specifically for his own records.
This is the 25th year of DJ-Kicks, which seems to grow stronger each passing edition. The Mr. Scruff DJ-Kicks compilation will be released on March 27. Pre-order here.
