Details have been announced for Kode9's edition of DJ-Kicks, due for release this June.
The Hyperdub boss took a no-nonsense approach to assembling the mix, compiling what he describes as "just a snapshot of my DJ sets from the first half of 2010." The tracklist is heavy on UK funky, broken beat, grime and R&B, but surprisingly light on on the genre Kode9 helped vault into widespread popularity: dubstep.
"[The mix is] definitely not an exploration of my musical heritage, but it's not all new stuff. It probably signifies something about my relationship to dubstep that the mix only has a few dubstep tunes in it... Unfortunately, I fear some listeners, because of my background, will think that all the tracks are just mutations of dubstep."
In addition to tracks by Aardvarck, Digital Mystikz, Zomby and Cooly G, the mix will feature an exclusive track by Kode9, entitled "You Don't Wash." The compilation will be the third installment of DJ-Kicks this year, following contributions by The Juan Maclean and James Holden.
