!K7 to reissue Kemistry & Storm’s DJ Kicks compilation


21 years after its initial release, the reissue commemorates 25 years of DJ Kicks.

With their flagship DJ Kicks series reaching a quarter-century, !K7 Records are to reissue Kemistry & Storm’s seminal entry, first released in 1999. The pair are two of the most influential figures in drum’n’bass history, founding Metalheadz in 1994 (along with Goldie, whom Kemistry had introduced to the scene) and holding down the label’s legendary residency at Blue Note. Their DJ Kicks, considered to be one of the best in the series to this day, caught them at the height of their powers, before Kemistry’s death in a freak accident just three months later.

The sampler is available in white and black vinyl while the mix is available to stream in full for the first time. Pre-order or listen here.
