Forest Swords aka UK producer Matthew Barnes will helm the next DJ-Kicks mix, which features selections from Laurel Halo, Orbital, Dead Can Dance, Neneh Cherry, David Toop, Demdike Stare and more. The eclectic 27-track compilation covers ‘80s post-punk, ‘90s electronica and more.

K7 are pleased to announce Forest Swords as the next curator of the ever essential DJ-Kicks series. "My favourite nights when I was younger, there wasn't really a focus on etiquette; sticking to genres, perfect transitions – it was all pretty DIY, like having someone cook up their personal mixtape in front of you, just to share music between people"; says Barnes. "John Peel's eclectic radio show made a huge impact on me growing up, so that kind of personal, instinctive approach to selecting tracks always felt more exciting than something that was sterile and seamless. I wanted to carry some of that spirit into this compilation". 

Like much of his own output, Forest Swords’ DJ-Kicks dances around pristine electronics to embrace more organic textures: 80s post punk (Anna Domino, Dead Can Dance), classic 90s British electronica (Orbital, Mira Calix, Disjecta), and smokey digi-dub (Rhythm & Sound), all rub up alongside some of the most forward-facing producers working today (Demdike Stare, Laurel Halo) and avant garde explorers (David Toop, Kara-Lis Coverdale).
