Review: The genius of the DJ Kicks series has always been in the leeway it gives to DJs to strike their own chord. Over the years, this opportunity has been used in many ways, from showing off record collecting skills and surprise eclecticism to straight-up party rocking and curious after-hours sounds. So how have Digitalism interpreted the brief? Pretty much as you'd expect, to be honest, gleefully mashing up piano-laden party jams, gravely indie dance, over-compressed electro-house and nosebleed techno. Sure, there are surprises - a string of spacey synth jams and a dash of slacker rock - but for the most part this is a no-holds-barred romp through pogo-friendly dancefloor fun. Really, we didn't expect anything less.

Review: New York disco man Juan Maclean compiles the latest DJ-Kicks compilation, following the likes of Hot Chip, Booka Shade and Henrik Schwarz. Selecting from a rich tradition of house music, Maclean includes a combination of classic tracks like Rick Wilhite's "Get On Up" (remixed by fellow house don Theo Parrish) and recent disco cuts from DFA buddies Shit Robot and Still Going. There's some European tech house from Florian Meindl, Alex Niggemann and Andre Crom & Luca Doobie, and an exclusive new track from Juan Maclean to top things off.
