Our Australian homies Bag Raiders (the Big Fun-lovers themselves) are back stateside, touring all over the place opening for Ellie Goulding, with a smattering of solo gigs in between (like tonight, at Tammany Hall in NYC).

To the left of this picture (totally worthy of the Awesome People Hanging Out Together Tumblr) you’ll find our friend Thee Mike B, one of the finest, funnest DJs in all of Los Angeles. He recently guested on East Village Radio and spun all manner of new jams, including the premier of Fifteenth, his discoed-out collab with Sammy Bananas that’s dropping on Fool’s Gold very soon. Let the lvlz into your life…
In the latest edition of his “Liner Notes” video series, Trackademicks talks about the genesis of his State Of The Arts collaboration with Teedra Moses, “Face The Music.” The timing couldn’t be better, since the new Luxurious Undergrind mixtape from Teedra just dropped, featuring the Trackademicks-produced “Invitation,” as well as the 1-O.A.K-produced “So Special”.

“Kid Sister is wrapping up a new EP and her second album – they’re both coming out crazy, and while she’s feeling the vibe, she wanted to jump on some fun stuff like we did for the Kiss Kiss Kiss mixtape. I love DJ Nehpets’ juke remix of Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation” and knew she would sound crazy on it. But I had no idea she would freak it like THIS!?!? A sweaty summer jam for Chi-town and beyond.”
