!K7 Resurrects DJ Trading Cards
Celebrating the 50th instalment in its famed DJ-Kicks mixtape series, German label !K7 has revived its DJ trading card series.
Originally launched in 1996, featuring such artists as Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, DJ Hell, Derrick May, and Juan Atkins, the newly relaunched set of 20 includes such names as Nina Kraviz, Actress, Carl Craig, Four Tet, Will Saul, Maceo Plex, Maya Jane Coles and John Talabot. Each card features stats like the number of bookings each has racked up over the past year, their longest ever track length, remixes and social fan count. The original collection features stats such as average BPM, total remixes and record collection size.
The new DJ trading cards have been made to coincide with the release of the 50th DJ-Kicks release, which arrived last month care of DJ Koze (all the names come from the DJ-Kicks roster). The cards are free with any !K7 webstore purchase over 20 euros, while supplies last.
