    Opener ‘Miami Theme’ sets the tone, Erika Janunger’s voice floating over brooding piano chords, like a Lynchian club scene.

    Much like the trio's studio work, the set has a unique touch that seems happenstance and carefully plotted all at once.

    As with most DJ-Kicks comps, this one shows a different side to the group and is as much of an homage as it is a glimpse into the trio's future.

    BBF's effort may not be anything ground breaking, but if you're looking for a solid mix to vibe out to, this could be just the ticket.

    For their DJ-Kicks mix, Brand Brauer Frick continues the trio’s pursuit of the human element, which is often lacking in electronic music and digitally assembled computer mixes, by recording their entire set live on vinyl during a daytime session at the Berlin club Watergate. This particular approach is immediately evident through a warmer-EQed sound of some recognizable pieces and a few less-than-surgically-perfect track transitions.

    Brandt Brauer Frick's contribution to the series, while not a classic, is still a little treasure trove.
