German producer Stefan Kozella, better known as DJ Koze, has long been a staple of the club scene, with his thrumming, hoppy beats soundtracking many hazy nights. Most recently, Koze released a DJ-Kicks mix (his is the 50th installment.) This follows 2014's Reincarnations Pt. 2 mix and 2013's star-studded album Amygdala. The mix opens with the exclusive Koze track, "I Haven't Been Everywhere But It's On My List," a light, breezy jam that's eclectic but also accessible. Watch the new video for that below (dir. Katharina Duve and Timo Shierhorn).
DJ Koze is also playing shows this summer, including one of the Verboten StageONE-presented shows at Brooklyn's 50 Kent on September 6. That bill also includes Maceo Plex, DJ Tennis and David August. Tickets are still available.
All dates are listed, with the DJ-Kicks mix tracklist and new video, below...

Nina Kraviz, who released her excellent debut album last year, is going on an international tour this year which brings her to Williamsburg dance club Output on July 3 for a Blkmarket-presented show with Ben Klock and Taimur & Fahad. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Her only other US show that we're aware of is Movement Festival in Detroit. All dates are listed below (via Resident Advisor).
Nina has been making headlines lately due to her "bath scene" (pictured above) from the interview video Resident Advisor did with her last month. FACT pointed to an article by Greg Wilson about Nina over-sexualizing herself, which Nina responded to in her own letter on Facebook. More controversy arose when Crosstown Rebels' Maceo Plex offered his take on it (which he's since apologized for). And FACT published another article on the matter, which discussed sexism in music, an issue that was also publicly taken on by Grimes and by Solange this week.
All Nina Kraviz dates are listed, along with the Resident Advisor video, a music video, and her entire Facebook letter, below...
Lindstrom will be releasing a 12" of remixes from his Six Cups of Rebel LP on June 25 with remixes from Oneohtrix Point Never (who plays Ecstatic Summer), Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, and Mark McGuire (of Emeralds). Have a listen to Oneohtrix Point Never's take on "Call Me Anytime" below.
Lindstrom is currently on a tour which brings him to NYC on Friday (5/25) for the previously discussed Webster Hall show with Simian Mobile Disco (tickets). That tour will also bring him to Detroit's Movement Electronic Music Festival this weekend where he'll play alongside Public Enemy, Actress, SBTRKT, Major Lazer, Gold Panda, Nina Kraviz, Matias Aguayo, FaltyDL, AraabMUZIK and more. Tickets for the fest are on sale now. The full lineup is listed below.

In related news, as mentioned, Apparat will come to NYC after Mutek for a show at Gramercy Theater on May 31. It's since been announced that Sleepyhead will open that show.
