2015 saw German label Studio !K7 celebrate the twentieth anniversary of its influential mix series DJ-Kicks, which has featured everyone from Carl Craig to Actress and Nina Kraviz. With today's announcement of the series' next guest, they'll be able to add yet another legend to their list of alumni: Detroit house icon Kenny Dixon Jr., AKA Moodymann.

The forthcoming release will be the artist's first-ever commercial mix, and according to the press release it's set to deliver a "libidinous, blues-drenched mood that takes in heart-breaking soul, gorgeous hip-hop and love-fueled house." Excitingly, 11 of the mix's 30 tracks will be exclusive Moodymann edits, as well as a diverse spread of tracks from the likes of Marcellus Pittman, Flying Lotus and Little Dragon. Along with CD and digital, a 3-LP vinyl edition will also be available, including only 19 tracks. Check both sets of tracklists below, and clock in your preorders here.
