I've always been very fond of the "Dj-Kicks" compilations. It's such a treat to receive a dj mix by one of your music heroes with an exclusive brand new track. This time around we welcome Andrew Butler and his Hercules & Love Affair crew who follow the likes of Nicolette, The Juan MacLean, Hot Chip, Erlend Øye, Chromeo, Annie or Four Tet in this spectacular and now considered cult series of mixtapes. And what a fabulous house treasure we receive in the shape of the nu disco champion's exclusive new track "Release Me" with echoes from my beloved "Showing Out" by Mel & Kim... I hope the song heralds the arrival of the band's 3rd LP...
