  • Forest Swords has mixed the latest instalment in the DJ-Kicks series, due out next month. Matthew Barnes's 27-track mix covers a lot of ground, spanning '80s post punk, '90s electronica, smokey digi-dub and music by contemporary acts such as Laurel Halo, Demdike Stare and Kara-Lis Coverdale. As ever, it also features a new track, "Crow," by Barnes. Both the CD and double-pack vinyl versions are out on May 18th. "My favourite nights when I was younger, there wasn't really a focus on etiquette; sticking to genres, perfect transitions," Barnes says. "It was all pretty DIY, like having someone cook up their personal mixtape in front of you, just to share music between people." Listen to a clip of new track "Crow."
