Kim has put up a couple of brand new mixes on C60Crew's Mixcloud site—if you like rock you'll enjoy "Year of the Rabbit," which Kim describes a "genre-traveling, decade-jumping mix centered on guitar guitar guitar, at best songs you haven't heard, at the very least raised into a new context for you." And just as an aside for you guitar freaks, here's Kim's actual Potvin Ranchero Grande. (By "actual" I mean that's his guitar doing the modeling.)
Kim was a legendary D.C. dj on alternative radio back in the long-gone days when giants bestrode the Earth.
The Year of the Rabbit setlist is: Primal Scream, Tokyo Police Club, Eleventh Dream Day, Band of Susans, Kyuss, Vessel, Dir En Gray, Frightened Rabbit, Snaper, Arcade Fire, Jimi Hendrix, Th' Faith Healers, No Age, Biff Bang Pow!, and Tommy Keane. Unlike some of the atmospheric and electronica Kimclouds, this one goes pretty loud. Crankit.
The other new one is SLUSH, and Kim says a third new one will post soon.

P.S. I'm not sure, but I think you need pretty good bandwidth to stream Mixcloud. Sometimes it works for me, sometimes not so well.
