Detroit dance music icon and Mahogani Music boss, Moodymann, shared the entirety of his upcoming DJ-Kicks mix for your listening pleasure today. DJ-Kicks is an influential mix series that celebrated its twentieth anniversary last year, and falls under the umbrella of German label Studio !K7.

It's hard to overstate the legacy of Kenny Dixon Jr., so we're thrilled to receive a recording demonstrating his outstanding connoisseurship as a DJ, in his first commercial mix CD, no less. The artist takes the opportunity to touch upon a soulfully eclectic range of styles, all the way from soul and hip-hop to house and disco, tying together sounds and moods with a masterful fluidity learned after more than two decades in the industry. Featured artists include everyone from UK pop artist Jai Paul, to fellow Detroit stalwart Marcellus Pittman.

Check out the mix exclusively streaming from DJ-Kicks' website here. Along with CD and digital, a 3-LP vinyl edition will also be available; register your preorder now and be sure to pick up your copy when it's out this Friday, February 19.
