The Aus Music man populates his entry into the long-running series, due out this June, with favorites like Bicep, Leon Vynehall and October.
Will Saul will become the latest mixer in !K7's DJ-Kicks series this June.
The UK-based jack of all trades has been a major advocate for fresh club sounds in recent years, giving a major boost to artists like Leon Vynehall, October, Cottam and Bicep through his Simple and Aus Music imprints. More recently, he's brought his own productions into focus, both under his own name and his formerly anonymous CLOSE alias. You'll find all of the above on his DJ-Kicks entry, which follows mixes by Brandt Brauer Frick and John Talabot. (The latter topped our DJ mix poll last year.)
The mix itself features 24 tracks in total, with two affiliated samplers—one double-vinyl, one an EP—to be released simultaneously. Check out one of the exclusives from the EP, Bicep's "Nova," streaming below.
