Overview

Kruder & Dorfmeister's DJ Kicks mix was one of the earliest and remains a standard bearer. The celebrated Viennese weirdos' choices encompass jazzy drum 'n' bass (Aquasky's "Kauna"), stripped-down techno-funk ("Dadamnphreaknoizphunk?" by Hardfloor), cheesy porno soundtrack outtakes ("Radio Burning Chrome" by Showroom Recordings, a.k.a. Patrick Pulsinger), and even a '70s-style soul throwdown (Small World's "Livin' Free"), plus their own 1993 treasure, the swirling "High Noon." The impeccably selected and sequenced set is fleshed out with a generous helping of studio post-production, yielding a modern-day masterpiece of dub science, elongating spectral echoes, and hazy beats into mesmerizing vapor trails.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
Though it's a close race, Kruder & Dorfmeister make for better DJs than producers, as witnessed by their volume in the DJ-Kicks series. Beginning with downbeat trip-hop including Herbaliser, Statik Sound System, and Thievery Corporation, Kruder & Dorfmeister flow through jazzy drum'n'bass (with Aquasky and JMJ & Flytronix) and techno (with Hardfloor and Showroom Recordings). K&D sound much more relaxed and involved than on their own G-Stoned EP.
