The 24th year of the ever-relevant selectors' blends, there have been many, many highlights. From 2019s hottest property, Peggy Gou to electronic pioneer Carl Craig and Deep-Tech meister Deetron; Nu-jazzers Truby Trio, to Philadelphian Worldwide Broken-Beat Soul man Vikter Duplaix and Detroit's one-off Moodymann.
Enter Kamaal Williams to help us say goodbye to the second decade of the millennium.
Deeply melodic, quirkily rhythmic and full of soul, man-of-the-moment Kamaal has been part and producer of two widely lauded LPs in the last couple of years and a number besides (the beautiful piano flourishes of 'Shinjuku' can be found here). This edition of !K7's musical flagship presents 1 1/4 hours, filling the gaps and hopping through the electronic and the acoustic, threaded together with a genre hop and a jazz ethos. Many were called but the few that were chosen read like a who's who of their specialities: Max Graef, Lone, Peven Everett, Dego, Seiji and even room for the evergreen 'Southern Freeez'.
Available on all the major formats, there are also MP3s of the original cuts to go with Mr Williams' splendid mix on the tireless !K7 Records.
