Unfortunately I surrendered to the only review here and bought this album. I am not saying it's bad - there are some good tracks - but overall not worth buying. Kid Loco chose a difficult way to mix some of the subtle stuff - he just added more beats and messed up the way ambient music works. If I didn't know works like Primal Scream's ECHO DEK or above mentioned K!D Kicks I would give it 4 stars but compared to these two treasures it does not deserve more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Jazz meets Funky hip-hop fun! 23 Feb 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic compilation of some jazz/funk/hip-hop related mixes and tracks. I heard it once in a shop while waiting for the queue to die down and couldn't believe how good it was.
The first couple and last couple of tracks are maybe a bit below the level of the rest of the disc but that's the only real fault.
Do yourself a favour and buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant 13 Dec 1999
By vadim's dog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album has to be experienced. Kid Loco merges heavy beats, ethereal ambience, and avant-garde jazz seamlessly. I'm not sure how much he actually modified each of these tracks from their original state, but even if he left them unchanged, his choice of songs, their order, and the transitions he provides would still be proof of his genius. Each track leads into an unpredictable yet somehow smooth follow-up, and just when you think Kid has reached his climax he brings the intensity back. Not just a "booty" or a "pothead" album (although it could certainly be put to those uses), "DJ-Kicks" transcends all boundaries and can be savored on so many levels. The casual listener will find a mix of sensual ambience and head-bopping beats. Yet it will reward the close listener for hearing the clever samples, delicate layering of sounds, and the breathtaking transitions.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS WHAT I CALL RELAXING 14 Mar 2000
By "vondele" - Published on Amazon.com

I am a black female, and this man makes me want to leave my job, lounge in my favorite recliner, drink several martinees, and feel beautiful. This album is sensuous.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hazy instrumental hip hop from the Parisian producer 29 May 2000
By Richard Diaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Kid Loco is a relative newcomer as a professional DJ, the opportunity springing up initially from his success as a producer and remixer of laid back tunes. This mixed set of songs reflects both his eclectic taste in downtempo or psychedelic instrumental hip hop (as the CD aptly labels it), and a competent skill of track blending. The result is an album that stands above his "Jesus Presents..." collection and upholds the quality of the DJ-Kicks series.
The CD begins with a clever little intro, "Don't You Know I'm Loco," then really starts with the slow beats and India chants of "Om Namah Shivaya," a melancholy tune that works even if ethnic vocals aren't your thing. It turns to a series of hazy hip-hop instrumentals predominately off the Ninja Tune label, but thankfully lacking the label's signature too-lazy abstract jazz/funk sound. The highlight of the bunch is DJ Vadim's "Theme From the Conquest of the Irrational," followed by the equally stellar "Introspection" by Jazzanova. The album now begins to take a turn for the worse, as the odd, male off-key chanting of "Dark Soul" is unsettling, and is followed by the bagpipes (!) mixed into and screwing up the subdued guitars of Underworld's "BlueSki." But order is quickly restored on subsequent tracks (with the jarring exception of the painful horns and chanting of "Attitude Adjuster") and ends with Kid Loco's exclusive "Flying on 747."
The scoreboard: there are a few clunkers amidst the 18 tracks you get, but it's as consistently a dreamy-smooth set as you'll find, and without rappers getting in the way. For those who want a mix that's relaxing but not lethargic, or who want to try his best domestic release to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moody, atmospheric soup 21 Dec 1999
By "melodic" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Kid Loco brings an ambient/trip-hop/acid jazz/edgy audio trip with this DJ Kicks installment. In fact, it is very difficult to define his schtick--and that is probably the finest compliment you can pay to this album. This mix provides a sort of gooey, funky, artsy background soundtrack to chilled-type indoor activities. It definitely requires additional listens and a worthy sound system to guage its true value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loco never sounded so good! 15 April 2003
By Gregory Gross - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Of all the K7 DJKicks this one is unique. I have no words to describe what I'm hearing but it sounds like a genius having a good time doing what he loves to do. With the exception of Future Pilot aka, the Cinematic Orchestra, DJ Vadim, Jazzanova, and Boards of Canada all the artist on this cd are totally unknown to me, but I still enjoy hearing this cd again and again.
Sorry folks, but I have nothing bad to say about this cd and I will problably look for other Kid Loco mixes.
