DJ Koze has never been one to play by the rules, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that his contribution to !K7's seminal DJ-Kicks series (its 50th edition) isn't a typical 70-minute peaks-and-valleys club mix. Instead, Koze's laid-back, eclectic selection showcases his love for left-field hip-hop and pop as well as dance music, coming closer to an entry in the defunct Back to Mine series. His signature offbeat sense of humor is still intact, as displayed by the computer voice introducing Koze's own "I Haven't Been Everywhere But It's on My List," a glitchy, J Dilla-esque hip-hop instrumental which kicks off the disc. His taste in hip-hop runs toward abstract American artists such as cLOUDDEAD (here remixed by Boards of Canada), Madlib, and Homeboy Sandman, and he often includes instrumentals or his own edits of tracks to fit his taste. The mix takes an unexpectedly sorrowful turn around the midway mark, starting with Broadcast's spare, heartbreaking "Tears in the Typing Pool," then moving into a Daniel Lanois slide guitar instrumental, which segues into a 2 Bears vocal mashed up with a Hi-Tek instrumental, followed by William Shatner's surprisingly poignant spoken word piece "It Hasn't Happened Yet." When Koze finally gets around to mixing in some house tracks, they're midtempo and bittersweet rather than high-energy floor fillers, and uniformly excellent, particularly Frank & Tony's sublime "Bring the Sun." One wonders how astonishing the mix would be if it had consisted entirely of tracks like this, but the variety is refreshing, and Koze's adventurous spirit is always admirable. © Paul Simpson /TiVo

Stefan Kozalla, quizzical and ebullient, as quoted on the second volume of Reincarnations: "What do I think is the all-time best remixer? I thought a long time about this question and, um, I think it's me. Oh wait, wait -- um...yes, yes, yes, yes, it's me, it's me. And do I know the secret of making a great remix? No, I don't know the secret. Please tell me. I need to know to keep the pole position." This talk is overdubbed toward the conclusion of his slightly roguish, wholly seductive remix of Herbert's Bodily Functions highlight "It's Only," which landed at the top of Resident Advisor's Top 50 of 2013 poll. The track's level of regard demonstrates that, since the first volume of Reincarnations, Koze continued to be one of the most valued and creative remix producers in the business. If not quite as dazzling or as novel as the 2009 volume that preceded it, this assortment of Koze remixes, which covers a comparatively short period of time, nonetheless lacks disposable selections. Among the greater triumphs are a bumping and spaced-out transformation of Mount Kimbie's "Made to Stray," a rumbling take on Moderat's "Bad Kingdom," and a subdued dub-house version of Caribou's "Found Out." Koze also continues to expose his knack for left-field rap production with a dizzying chop of Gonzales' "Knight Moves" and a drunken stomp he grants to Herbert's "You Saw It All." His irreverent yet still musical approach, whether drastically processing sounds from the original productions or adding his own ideas, continues to astound. No one synthesizes mischief and finesse like he does. As with the volume that preceded it, the anthology has a mixtape-like flow that prompts beginning-to-end listening, as if Koze carried out his work, from case to case, with track sequencing in mind. This is far from comprehensive. Remixes for Efdemin, Mathias Kaden, Ben Watt, and Wolfgang Voigt, among others, remain uncompiled. © Andy Kellman /TiVo
