Boomkat Product Review:
Finally, a !K7 release that we can get a little hot under the collar about - this expansive boxed compilation collects the finest exclusive tracks from the 25 release history of the series. Aptly kicking off the compilation is a track from !K7's success story Kruder & Dorfmeister who's original DJ Kicks mix managed to sidle it's way into student halls of residence the world over, the track 'Black Baby' was a highlight of the mix and hasn't aged much, it still sounds just as haunting and smoky as it did way back then! The mix goes on to showcase career high moments from the usually awful Tiga (here appearing with a hip-house version of Nelly's drunk-girl classic Hot in Here) Erlend Oye and Kid Loco, and slips in classics from the always reliable Annie and Playgroup. The real boon here though is the cheeky bonus track from none other than techno God Carl Craig who is (as ever) on top form here with a track named after the series itself. A sterling effort from !K7 here (obviously a labour of love for the label) and a highly recommended compilation.
