The Border Community head will release the next edition of the series, followed by Hyperdub's Kode9.
The new mix CD will be Holden's first release since The Idiots Are Winning, his album from 2006. Earlier that year, Holden demonstrated his eclectic mixing skills on At The Controls, a compilation that wove together minimal and tech house tracks with indie, kraut rock and experimental selections. The tracklist for his forthcoming DJ-Kicks is similarly diverse, with tunes by spaced-out artists like Caribou, Mogwai and Walls, as well as Kieren Hebden (AKA Four Tet)'s collaboration with prolific jazz drummer Steve Reid. DJ-Kicks will also include a previously unreleased track by Holden, entitled "Triangle Folds."
!K7 have also announced that the following edition of DJ-Kicks will be mixed by Kode9, the UK bass innovator behind Hyperdub Records. Details on that compilation are still forthcoming, but the scheduled release date is June 21st, 2010.
