About this item

Avalon Emerson's contribution to !K7's DJ-Kicks series, out September 4, 2020, encompasses her maverick sound. The 70-minute mix traverses a wide range of tempos, styles and eras with the grace of an experienced selector who distinguishes herself based on technical skill, clever methodology and a unique vision. Old-school house records mingle with references to rave and Italo, but the set isn't confined to a specific era or style — besides her own.

"I wanted it to be representative of how I sound in the club while incorporating new original music," Emerson says. “I thought of it as a good opportunity to summarize the last few years of DJing for me and share my original productions, covers and remixes.” Avalon's DJ-Kicks is a confident and competent summation of what makes her one of the underground's most in-demand DJs. The diverse selections are tied together by her own edits, remixes and productions. New material bookends the mix: she opens the mix with her own voice featured more prominently than ever before on a bold, fresh and playful cover of The Magnetic Fields' "Long Forgotten Fairytale." At the end, she shuts it down with her "14th Life" remix of Austra's "Anywayz," which reimagines the song not as a dancefloor tool, but rather in a distinctly Avalon flavor of pop.
