This week, JOTS embark on their latest techno voyage through the old continent, the “Life Laughter Death” tour. It kicks off this Thursday (5/12) at Pratersauna in Vienna and crosses countries till June 4th, when JOTS close out big at Wet Club in Espenhain, Germany.
Smack in the middle of these dates is a show at Fabric in London on May 20th for Kill Em All, alongside Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team, Filthy Dukes, Stopmakingme and more, not to mention the whole Boys Noize crew in the other room. To celebrate, the Fabric First blog posted up a new Q&A with Chris and Linus, as well as a new “Life Laughter Death” mix you can download here.
Mishka just collected all of their “Keep Watch” DJ mixes on a single Soundcloud page for your streaming / downloading enjoyment. The long running series launched with an exclusive Jokers Of The Scene mix in 2008, and has since featured contributions from Congorock, Crookers, and way more friends. Re-up on favorites, grab any mixes you missed the first time around, and rave out your weekend.
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.
