Listen to a New Track From Motor City Drum Ensemble
- Words: Glenn Jackson
With only a matter of days left before the latest installment of the renowned DJ-Kicks series is unleashed on the world, the German producer/DJ behind the forthcoming mix, Danilo Plessow (a.k.a Motor City Drum Ensemble) has offered up his sole original contribution to the effort for your streaming pleasure. "L.O.V.E.," with its sparse electric piano chords, shimmering percussion, and absolutely irresistible bassline, is just the kind of syrupy-smooth house we're hoping to get a healthy dose of when MCDE's DJ-Kicks drops July 5. Throw on top some tasteful vocal layers and, of course, some chopped-up soul samples and we're officially hooked. Take a listen below, and brush up on the details for the release (including the tracklist, which features Recloose, Robert Hood, and Aphex Twin among others) here while you're at it.
