It features new material from Rrose, Machine Woman and Ikonika, plus two tracks from Halo herself.
Across 60-minutes, Halo has included music from Parris, Facta and Dario Zenker, plus a standout cut from her 2018 EP with Hodge. There will also be new material from the likes of Rrose, Machine Woman and FIT Siegel, and Halo has contributed two original tracks of her own.
!K7 describes the mix as a "blistering ride through electro, trippy minimalism and textures that range from icy to dubby."
Halo's last two solo records—a mini-LP for Latency and the RA-recommended Dust on Hyperdub—both bear the mark of a gifted experimental producer. Now she'll show off her skills in the DJ booth with an upcoming DJ-Kicks tour.
Listen to "Sweetie," one of Halo's new tracks for the DJ-Kicks mix.
