The Viennese duo of Hercules and Love Affair are working on their new album currently, but they have managed to compile a DJ-Kicks collection in the meantime.

This set features a mash-up of classic late ‘80s and early ‘90s house, including Haze Factory’s “A Bit of Redemption”.  Andy Butler says of the tune, “they made a very Gherkin sounding song with Detroit-y snare bashes, and very Wild Pitch-y sounding stabs.”


DJ-Kicks will drop on November 13th in the US and internationally on October 29th.
