Product Description

Like much of his own output, Forest SwordsDJ-Kicks dances around pristine electronics to embrace more organic textures: 80s post punk (Anna Domino, Dead Can Dance), classic 90s British electronica (Orbital, Mira Calix, Disjecta), and smokey digi-dub (Rhythm & Sound), all rub up alongside some of the most forward-facing producers working today (Demdike Stare, Laurel Halo) and avant garde explorers (David Toop, Kara-Lis Coverdale).

The compilation shifts through rhythms and emotions: from pop icon Neneh Cherry‘s primal thudding to the zombified throb of exclusive Forest Swords track Crow, via Deena Abdelwaheed‘s clattering deconstructions and the outdoor mountain singing of Ánde Somby.

Drawing threads between decades, borders and genres, DJ-Kicks is a collection of tracks that feels as restlessly curious, and crucial, as Barnes‘ own work.
