The Crosstown Rebels DJ will helm the next instalment of the renowned mix series in April.
American producer Eric Estornel (who also produces under the name Maetrik) has enjoyed a rapid rise to fame in the past few years, as documented in a recent feature on RA. Part of that is likely due to his prolific release schedule, dropping hooky deep house tracks like "Vibe Your Love" and "Under The Sheets" on labels such as Crosstown Rebels, No. 19 Music and his own Ellum Audio.
In a press release, Estornel promises his mix will be a "little more deep and futuristic" than what he calls the "throwback" trend of early '90s house currently gripping the house scene. The disc will feature a tracks both new and old (some dating back 20 years), with almost all of them edited by Estornel himself because "a lot of them were missing percussion, or some other element I thought they could use." In addition to Maceo Plex selections, the mix also includes the likes of Move D, TV Baby and Detroit's DJ Stingray. As with all DJ-Kicks, Estornel's will feature an exclusive track: his own "Galactic Cinema."
