    In terms of song choice, and as an exercise in breaking boundaries, Scuba's DJ Kicks stands as a solid effort on par with the good work he's done with his recent productions.

    It's just a smart encapsulation of underground dance music's better qualities, but not so showoffy that it can't work as an hourlong immersion tank.

    We can imagine these 32 tracks stretched out in three hours, and we can enjoy the way they squeeze into 76 minutes equally well.

    Scuba has achieved something hard to define with this mix program, and that's part of what makes it so enjoyable.

    It might be just a mix CD, but Scuba's DJ-Kicks is a landmark both personal and scene-wide.

    Not necessarily a mix for ages, but a mix that's pretty easy to come back to, be it road-trips, background music, or a personal headphones-odyssey.

    Scuba has said he wanted to translate that woozy, late-night, let-it-happen feeling into this mix. He's succeeded.
