Who is Club Cheval? “Nous sommes un collectif, un label, un laboratoire, une écurie. Nous sommes situés entre Lille, Paris et Londres.” This stable of bass wizards has been responsible for some of the funnest, oddest club tracks of the past year or so. The youngest of the crew is Canblaster, who burst on the scene like a synth-wielding Harry Potter with facemelting singles like “Jetpack,” “Clockworks,” and a gleefully warped collection of remixes, like his take on our Style Of Eye and Slagsmålsklubben single “Homeless.”
Combine that discography with his enthusiastic, thoroughly unpredictable approach to DJing, and it’s no wonder that Canblaster has quickly become an extended fam favorite over here at FG. But don’t take our word for it – go float with his brand new Foolcast mix, “Skyscrapers Are The Mountains Of The City,” a hypnotic collection of digital jams new and old.
Last night on Real Late with Peter Rosenberg, Danny Brown and Nick Catchdubs repped FG at the home of blazing hip hop and RnB. While Rosenberg spun “Ray Ban Vision (Remix),” “Greatest Rapper Ever” and “Guitar Solo,” Danny dropped knowledge on Tim Hortons, Eightball, and #dannybrownshair, then Catchdini took over the decks for a guest “throwback mix” featuring Cru, Brick City Kids, and more random rap nuggets.
Donnis filmed a quick clip for his Southern Lights mixtape banger “Get Up, Get Out” at the ATL release party, check it out! He also just dropped a remix to blog-n-b favorites The Weeknd’s “Loft Music,” and is headed to Chicago this Friday (4/29) to perform at the Creme De La Creme party at House Of Blues, RSVP here.
For the latest edition of our Foolcast mix series, we’re proud to present the debut of Missile Command, a new DJ team comprised of Neptunes / N*E*R*D mastermind Chad Hugo and longtime DMV partyrocker Hip Hop Dan.
The dynamic duo just got home from soundtracking a weekend of afterparties at Coachella and hopped right back into the booth to put together this Foolcast for us, falling somewhere between a traditional DJ mix – new favorites, remixes, left-field bangers – and a studio broadcast sneak peek. Check the tracklist after the jump, featuring tons of exclusives from the likes of No Planes In Space (another Chad collab, this time with Paul Banks of Interpol), Lupe Fiasco and more.
This Friday (4/22) the Natural History Museum’s long-running One Step Beyond party series will feature a Chromeo DJ set and a live performance by Telephoned. Reunited and it feels so good!
Tickets are already sold out, but Telephoned are giving away guestlist slots on their Twitter. The generosity continues, as Sammy and Maggie also gifted the internets with a f-a-b-o-l-o-u-s new “cover up” that you can grab here.
Get “melodicho” on this dreamy, house-y new mix from Sammy Bananas. It’s his contribution to the Pomp&Clout mix series, and you can download it here.
For more P&C x FG mixery, peep Nick Catchdubs’ edition. And for more Sammy B, check out his FG solo single “Move Your Body,” still rocking discerning dancefloors everywhere in original as well as Cassian and Toy Selectah-remixed flavors. It’s out now on Beatport, iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
