He’s the first artist to deliver a double compilation on the series.
The double CD compilation and triple vinyl release feature fourteen exclusive tracks, including a Tennis original called ‘Certain Angles’, new versions of tunes by Pole and Frank Bretschneider, and an unreleased track from Tel Aviv duo Red Axes.
Disc 1 is a slow burning seventy minute electronic trip that mixes plaintive piano with suspensory synths, gentle broken beats and textured sound sources with subtle and supple minimal grooves. Some of the artists included are Bochum Welt, Jon Hopkins, Mouse and Mars, Isolee and Four Tet.
Disc 2 is more energetic but just as considered, so is perfect for sunny afternoons or long drives. Here, dubbed out atmospheres percolate round house and techno grooves of increasing intensities. Names like Traumprinz, Robert Hood, Kenny Dixon Jr, Biosphere are included all along the mix.
DJ Tennis’ DJ-Kicks compilation is available to buy here.
