The album will be supported by a 13-date DJ tour of US and Europe

Kerri Chandler has been named as the selector in charge of the next installment in the long-running DJ-Kicks mix album series. It's been a full 22 years since CJ Bolland helmed the first-ever DJ-Kicks release in 1995, which makes it all the more surprising that somehow they've only just got around to Kerri... still, we got there in the end!

His 21-track mix is a wide-ranging affair, starting with some mellow, lounge-y jazz from Leroy Huston, then working its way through soul, boogie, vintage block party hip-hop/electro, disco, deep/soulful house... and more jazz. It's definitely more of a home-listening album than a reflection of many of Kerri's club sets, but it's well worth investigating. 

The full tracklist is as follows:

LeRoy Hutson - Cool Out
New York Streets
Rasa - When Will The Day Come *
The Foreign Exchange - Body
Fantasy Three - It’s Your Rock (Instrumental) *
T La Rock - It’s Yours
André Ceccarelli - Stock No.1 *
Soulful Session - All I Need feat. Tisha Monique (Demo Boogie Version)
Beckie Bell - Music Madness (Extended Charles Maurice Version)
Uptown Funk Empire - You've Got to Have Freedom *

Fruit - If You Feel It, Say Yeah
Kerri Chandler - Stop Wasting My Time (DJ-Kicks) *
Sylvia Striplin - You Can't Turn Me Away
Innerzone Orchestra - People Make The World Go Round *
Cymande - Getting It Back *
Kiki Willows - 3 AM
Roy Ayers - Liquid Love *

*Featured on 12-track vinyl version, which also includes Lesette Wilson's Look Into Tomorrow and Ethel Beatty's It's Your Love.
