Andrea Parker DJ Kicks [coll] – [Studio K7]
This an amazing remix CD was released as part of a box set on the iKZ label (and not a solo release). Although there are 20 tracks, its really one long remix that tracks very seamlessly. This offers more diverse sounds than her “Nothing Much” release although there is some of the classic Andrea Parker thumpy sounds. The diversity on this release reminds me of DJ Rupture. Here she mixes everything from Afrika Bambaata to Gescom, Renegade Soundwave, Depeche Mode, Piece (Carl Craig) and Dr. Octagon to name a few. Everything on here is nice, heavy, thumpy rhythmic, intriguing. Hip hop, electronics, funk, so many sounds here. A couple of the stand outs for me are Dr. Octgagon and Depeche Mode but its hard to choose favorites. Andrea is known for her mixing skills particularly mixing hip hop with electronics so this will truly blow your mind.
