This week’s year-end wrapup edition of Washington City Paper features our friend Dave Nada in a front page story about moombahton, the caliente 110bpm subgenre he coined several months back. Check it out and be sure to download Dave’s Foolcast mix from this past March (as mentioned in the article) and grab his awesome, tempo flipping “boombahton” mix of LA Riots’ “Bombah.”

Jokers Of The Scene recently made Toronto their home, and to celebrate the move (and the release of their “Joking Victim” single, of course) they’re taking you on a journey this Saturday at The Social, with none other than Andrew Ross of Nacho Lovers on board as co-pilot of this technotheque.
Check Facebook for the party details and pick up the “Joking Victim” single now with remixes by Shit Robot and Vin Sol. As a matter of fact, why don’t you download the Shit Robot remix gratis right now, courtesy our friends at RCRD LBL. Get moody!
For more JoVic vibes, you can also download the latest JOTS mix from their Soundcloud.
Check out Kingdom’s collab with Shyvonne, “Mind Reader” in Pitchfork’s Top 100 Tracks of 2010. Then (if you haven’t already) go download the “blast to the head, powered along by the sheer kinetic force of its many moving parts” on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else good music is sold (there’s vinyl too!) along with remixes by Todd Edwards, L-Vis1990 and Bok Bok.
For even more Kingdom, grab his Tiombe Lockhart-featuring “Remember” on Fool’s Gold Vol 1 as well as his excellent Night Slugs EP That Mystic (the NS crew has a comp of their own out now), and peep these recent official remixes for Rita Indiana and Sleigh Bells.
NY Mag’s Vulture blog just premiered the Pomp&Clout-directed video for The Suzan’s “Home” – a kaleidoscopic pop adventure featuring four of the coolest girls we know.
There’s a iPhone / iPad app that goes along with it, allowing users to play with the kaleidoscope speed, position, angle and more themselves, while the Suzan knock out their xylophone riffs, surf guitar, and tom tom grooves. Check (and share) the video and free app all in one place at foolsgoldrecs.com/thesuzan.
We promised more Kid Sis, and here you go! Discobelle just premiered “Kiss Kiss Kiss,” the lead track from her tape of the same name, dropping 1/11/11 with Nick Catchdubs on mix duties. KS flips Afrojack’s instrumental into a singalong for the clurrrb, stay tuned for more jams from Ms Melisa’s mixtape as we get closer to the release date…
Our UK bros Greenmoney have been quite busy as of late: dropping new radio shows, new remixes, and even launching an eponymous label of their own with the debut release from Mista Men, “What You Do To Me.” Cop the release on Juno (there’s also a new GM chart) and download an exclusive Greenmoney edit of the tune from Fact Magazine.
More Greenmoney on the way! Be sure to check their debut Gold Ru$h EP out now on Fool’s Gold.
Go dance (for free) with Sammy Bananas tonight at Brooklyn Bowl, where he’ll be DJing as a guest at Body Language’s “Jack Frost Your Body” residency, along with Machine Drum. You might remember Sammy’s mix of their “Work This City” earlier this year.
Download Body Language’s free EP here. Check Sammy getting WNYC props, and his new Telephoned single of course. (Time Out Chicago called this weekend’s T’Phoned live show “basically incredible.” Everything’s coming up Sammy!)
