It’s no secret that Richard Russell of KLAM / XL drops Twitter gems on the regular. However, we were still pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this free zip of new tunes from RR under his new WLD PTCH moniker earlier this month. Beats!
Hit the jump for some background Tweets (in reverse chronological order, duh) and grab KLAM’s Fool’s Gold banger “Funky 4” today. Read More
Fellow NY indie Dutty Artz (helmed by DJ Rupture and Matt Shadetek) is gearing up to release their New York Tropical comp, a collection of new tunes from like-minded beatheads and musical futurists – among them Kingdom, who remixes DA’s Carribean chanteuse Rita Indiana’s “Los Poderes” with magical results. Check for it November 9th, and preview the compilation with this free collection of .m4r ringtones (!!!) for your iPhone, etc.
Telephoned will be playing with Cut Chemist, DJ Spinna and Jasmine Solano Thursday night (10/21) at the Red Bull Space in NYC for the Co-Sign CMJ party, it’s free with RSVP. You can also catch Sammy solo Wednesday night upstairs at Pianos for his weekly “Player’s Club” party. Read More
Following up their ecstatic, cowbell-fuled version of The Strokes’ “Take It Or Leave It,” our girls The Suzan are back with another cover. This time, they tap into a different frequency all together for a moody, Krautrock-y version of Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak standout “Paranoid.” Download from The Fader!
Check The Suzan live in NYC this week for CMJ shows with Nicky Digital (Wednesday @ Ella) and Saturday at the FG 3-Year Anniversary @ Brooklyn Bowl, all in advance of their Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat album release on 10/25. More Suzan announcements soon…
Check A-Trak and a bunch of our buds in LA next weekend for Hard Haunted Mansion. Busy P & Brodinski are among said buds, and they also happened to put together a promo mix for the party (featuring Duke Dumont’s awesome “Thudding Like Elmer” remix of LA Riots’ “The Drop,” out now on FG) that you should download immediately.
Treasure Fingers remixed new single “Y.S.L.M.” by likeminded disco house cutter-uppers Burns and Fred Falke, and it’s a goodie! Download now at Discobelle.
For more TF action on your speakerbox, check his new tracks “Lift Me” and “It’s Love” on Beatport, and get ready for the FG release of “Keep Up” on Fool’s Gold Vol 1 on 10/25. Best believe we have some crazy remix surprises lined up for that one too…
Hot on the heels of their cheeky mash “138 Shakedown”, KLAM have decided to share another exclusive DJ special with the FG blog fam. This time they took the Prodigy’s classic “Charly” and got a little Daft with it. Download!
Check KLAM making a rare London appearance at the Bangface 7th birthday party later this month, as well as joining BBC radio don Zane Lowe on the UK DJ Hero 2 tour later this month. Full details on their MySpace.
Just because A-Trak has become an international dance superstar doesn’t mean he can’t throw down pure hip-hop bangers with the best of them. So for his contribution to Fool’s Gold Vol 1, Trizzy goes straight for the subwoofers with “Ray Ban Vision,” enlisting G.O.O.D. Music upstart CyHi Da Prynce (who you last heard stealing the show on Kanye’s “So Appalled”) to drop extra-fly couplets on top of all the scratched-in synths and atomic kick drums. Grab it at RCRD LBL and check for the rest of our comp when it drops on 10/25.
