Various I Like It

The concept is simple: take four DJs, have them pick their four all-time favourite tracks, and let the chips fall where they may. For volume one, DJ Hell, Peter Kruder, Michael Reinboth, and Theo Thönnessen ante up with their selections, ranging from hip-hop to Northern soul to punk. While the overall result isn’t necessarily cohesive, it’s intriguing to hear where each of these diverse DJs is coming from. Also included are four trading cards with fun trivia such as "size of record collection” (Thönnessen: "Five Ikea Bonde units”) and "what do you read on the toilet.” With any luck, volume two will be even better.
