The latest Foolcast comes from our disco lovin Italian bro His Majesty Andre, who whipped up a collection of OG samples from some of your favorite dance records. Says HMA, “As you’ve might have noticed, I go crazy for sampling. No matter if it’s pop, house music, experimental or hip-hop, I’ve always been fascinated by the way you can turn a thing into another, whether a straight loop or a chopped, replayed and distorted one. The samples used in music are countless, I just chose my favorites.” No tracklist, that’s part of the fun…
Our Slow Roast brethren are gearing up to drop a collection of remixes of Codes’ debut Codes House EP on Tuesday, December 13th. It’s hard to imagine the originals becoming even more club-friendly, but dang if JWLS, Flinch, Torro Torro, Wax Motif & Neoteric, Rob Sparx and even Codes himself didn’t turn the bump up to 11 on these. Preview some of the remixes on Codes’ recent mix for Avalon in LA. And if you haven’t grabbed it already, hit the Duck Sauce Facebook to grab Craze & Codes’ remix of “Big Bad Wolf.”

Who better to write the book on fun than Kid Sister? The Kiss & Tell EP offers four of Kid Sister’s latest jams with a diverse crew of collaborators. “Mickey” is a club workout from DJ innovators Nadastrom (who just helped pilot Skrillex’s sold-out Mothership tour), while “Hide N Seek” pairs Kid Sis with rap absurdist Riff Raff and bass maestros Sinden & 5kin&Bone5. Hip-hop hero Scoop Deville (Snoop, Game, Fat Joe) mans the boards for “Cliq Claq” (as featured in Stella McCartney’s recent runway shows) as well as a brand-new remix of KS mixtape favorite “Gucci Rag Top,” now featuring a guest verse from fellow Fool’s Gold spitter Danny Brown.
Still, it’s Kid Sister’s inimitable personality on and off the mic that brings these team-ups to life with swaggering verses and clever, lipstick-smeared punchlines to spare. Just like the pulpy romance novels that inspired it’s title, Kiss & Tell offers pure pleasure for everyone. Word to the rap game Danielle Steel! Grab it now on iTunes and Beatport (and check KS guesting on the new Flosstradamus EP too!)
To get you in the mood, here’s a free download of “Mickey,” featuring Kid Sis and dem Nadastrom boys at their bounciest.
Shade45 selector supreme and one of our favorite NYC clubrockers DJ Wonder put together a collection of lite rock jams perfect for cooling out at home or walking the JC Penney aisles with Ma Dukes. Get breezy…
