    Is it possible to zero-in on the sound of the future by re-contextualizing music of the past? Maceo Plex's meticulously crafted DJ-Kicks mix aims to do just that. “For the last three years at least, the big trend has been early '90s house,” he says. “Everything's a throwback. I think it's the right time to put out something that's a little more deep and futuristic again.” So while the mix includes tracks that that are up to 20-years old, the selections highlight timeless qualities he feels are missing from contemporary dance floors, and the music is painstakingly re-edited for emphasis. “Most of the tracks are really old, so they needed freshening up,” he says. “A lot of them were missing percussion, or some other element I thought they could use. I think it's time for people to move on to rediscovering what electronic music is all about, which is moving forward. That futuristic sound, which is timeless.”
