Seth Troxler mixes new DJ-Kicks

Seth Troxler will be mixing the next episode of the legendary DJ-Kicks series, !K7 has announced. The colourful DJ, producer and Tuskegee and Soft Focus label boss has selected 18 records for the mix compilation, including tracks by Butch, K Alexi, DJ Koze, Derrick Carter, Cobblestone Jazz and free jazz pioneer Sun Ra.

Troxler on his contribution to the legendary series: “For my DJ-Kicks mix I wanted to do something that was honest, so I went out in the morning, micro-dosed myself and did all these errands around town. Then I came home at night and did the mix in one take. I wanted to curate something for people to easily listen to, that was nice, and funny and got you in the mood to do your homework, or drive that hour long trip when you need to go somewhere. I see this mix as a gay man named Rodney. Or a big black woman named Birtha.”

The mix also features an exclusive track Troxler made with Dutch DJ/producer Tom Trago. Troxler: “It was made after the closing of Trouw in Amsterdam, a place that we both loved dearly. Club Trouw used to be the printing press for a large daily newspaper and De Natte Cel (‘The Wet Cell’) was the shower room where the employees would wash the ink off their bodies that they specially opened for the last month that the club was open. Tom and I both played in De Natte Cel during the closing party and were so inspired by the space we left Trouw after around 48 hours, partied all night at the hotel and then went straight into the studio.”
