- The set includes cuts from Jon Hopkins, Monolake, Traumprinz and Biosphere, together with some exclusives from Manfredi Romano himself.
DJ Tennis, real name Manfredi Romano, is behind the next entry in !K7's DJ-Kicks mix series.
The Italian DJ, producer and Life And Death label founder has the rare honor of crafting a two-disc set for the series. He's put together a "slow-burning 70-minute electronic trip" for the first disc, and a comparatively "more energetic" session for the second. Of the 31 tracks included, four are exclusives: an original DJ Tennis cut featuring Fink titled "Certain Angles," plus remixes of material from Pole and Frank Bretschneider. There's also a new Red Axes tune called "Paratrooper."
Also appearing on the tracklists are the likes of Jon Hopkins, Monolake, Mouse On Mars & Atom™, Four Tet, Basic Channel (and Rhythm & Sound), Traumprinz, Robert Hood and Biosphere. Both the two-disc release and a triple-vinyl sampler will be out next month.
!K7 this month launched a DJ-Kicks online card game and issued The Exclusives Vol.III, an unmixed compilation with exclusive cuts featured on other DJ-Kicks mixes in recent years.
