DJ Kicks Series Again Proves Reliable

"When it comes to buying Mix CDs, one should look no further than the DJ Kicks collection. Andrea Parker slices and dices with the best of them with fairly brooding and dark undercurrents. She opens with her (very good) mix of Depeche Mode's It's No Good and slides seamlessly into Dr. Octogan's Earth People...and it all seems perfectly appropriate and ecletic. Other times, transitions come off choppy. Parker's DJ Kicks lacks the overall sweeping collective of DJ Kicks contributions from Kruder & Dorfmeister and Thievery Corporation. Nonetheless, it is a fine body of work, that any electronic music listener would like to have."
A masterful display of Andrea Parker's eclectic taste.
