2011_08_kidcolorpalette.jpg Kyle Woods, a.k.a. Kid Color, is a rather prolific DJ. He plays shows on a regular, even constant basis all over Chicago and beyond. His weekly at Smart Bar, Dollar Disco, continues to gain traction as it books bigger and bigger names, including Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem, and Ed Banger founder Busy P. And with all the work Kid Color puts in at the clubs, he manages to find time to work on his ongoing Palette Mix series, of which number five was released today. Per usual, he's put together a quality mix.

Palette Five is a 45-minute stroll through disco vibes new and old. The tracklist includes Caribou, Prince, Suzy Q, Cut Copy, and Chicago-based Tim Zawada, some of which receive the Kid Color treatment. Overall, there isn't much else to say about the mix that you couldn't find out after a few minutes of listening. Simply put: it's fun and versatile, and will nestle firmly into your party playlists.
