As heard on Fool’s Gold Radio (and everywhere else A-Trak has been DJing this summer), the Trizzy-enhanced version of the Rapture’s gospel stomper “How Deep Is Your Love” is out now on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
If you came by the Fool’s Gold booth at W+K’s “Shop” mega pop-up event earlier this summer, you would have caught an afternoon of tunes from our friends and fam, including NYC’s own Eli Escobar. It turns out that Eli recorded his set (“nice and mellow, a different sort of set than I might play live”) and posted it up on SoundCloud for everyone to enjoy.
If you still need some convincing, check out this megamix of FYH tracks put together by the one and only Hudson Mohawke. And peep the video for “Take Me High” (directed by CZ’s own Tiombe Lockhart) after the jump.
In advance of their tour of the same name, Sammy Bananas has lent his deft dance touch (and, clearly, his saxophone) to Chromeo’s “When The Night Falls.” Download it from RCRD LBL and see Chromeo, Sammy, and this Mayer Hawthorne fella when the tour hits a city near you. Be sure to grab Sammy’s new Telephoned mixtape while you’re at it, and stay tuned for his debut release with Thee Mike B as disco house duo Fifteenth.
As the profane gospel of Danny Brown spreads around the globe, more and more good reviews and pieces keep coming in. (You know we like to recap these!) Check out this great feature from the new issue of Spin (“half battle-scarred street rapper, half Station to Station-era David Bowie”) as well as their Day Off-centric blog post (“Danny Brown’s a guy worth rooting for”), and then see what Fact Magazine had to say about XXX (“completely honest, unrestrained and unmannered…essential listening”). And if you haven’t downloaded the album already to judge for yourself…what are you waiting for?
For more Danny, check his guest appearance on the Das Racist album (out now on iTunes – check them on tour this month) and a massive posse cut remix of Mr Muthafuckin Exquire’s “Huzzah!” that’s a secret track on Exo’s new Lost In Translation release with Mishka.
