When even 50 Cent is rocking curls, you know that Summer ’11 is getting off to a particularly wavy start. So what better time to release “The Activator Mix” into the world?!?
Fool’s Gold is proud to present a brand-new DJ mix from NegroClash, aka NYC party stalwarts and longtime label friends DJ Lindsey, Prince Language and Duane Harriott. The trio have whipped up a note-perfect collection of funkables perfect for your next house party, BBQ, vacation drive, or any other hot-weather activity that requires that extra degree of jams. No tracklist, just know these are the handclaps, basslines, 909s and good vibes you absolutely need in your life. Plus: it’s hosted by Sun Ra!
If you’re feeling these joints, be sure to check the NegroClash crew at subMercer in NYC this Friday (6/16) for even more. Check the flyer and info on Facebook.

Check out Nacho Lovers’ contribution to Bicep’s excellent mix series. To hear them tell it, “the last few mixes we’ve done have been quite conceptual so this one was kind of a return to a jacking, dancefloor-based mix. We always strive to make something timeless when we do mixes, so its definitely not a ‘hot tunes of the month’ type mix.” Grab now!

Sammy and Maggie of Telephoned came up with something really special with their “Switchboard” events, which take the cover song / sample flipping vibe of their mixtapes and applies it to a club night. It’s not your average party, which is what has made the three to date so fun and memorable. They return for a fourth round on Tuesday, June 7th at Sargent in the Hotel Chantelle basement, accompanied by guests Tanlines (a “DJ & guitar set”) and dancehall heroine Queen Majesty. Don’t miss it!
To get you in the mood, Telephoned have dropped a new volume of their podcast series, featuring a live set by DJ Wonder, recorded at the last party. He took their instructions to “play some covers and stuff” and turned it into a hour-long journey through quiet storm miami bass, 80s re-works, even an entire mini set of Prince covers. Jam this in your digtal tapedecks all summer (and stay tuned for Wonder’s Foolcast mix, coming soon…) Read More
