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.
Speaker-shredding rock duo Sleigh Bells and dancefloor futurist Kingdom might not seem like the most natural pairing in the world. Yet once again, our regal friend defies expectations in the most excellent of ways with his new, chopped up remix of SB’s “Tell Em,” which RCRD LBL dropped as an exclusive today. Float with the bass…
If you need more Kingdom in your life (and frankly, who doesn’t?) grab his That Mystic EP which just saw vinyl release, and check for upcoming shows on his blog including a Halloween edition of the Club Infinity party in NYC.
This week our friend (freund!) Malente returns to North America as part of the Scion Radio tour, along with Douster, Blu Jemz and Franki Chan. RSVP here for shows in Tampa, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and Cleveland.
Just because we love you, here’s a free download of the Douster remix of Kid Sister’s “Daydreaming.” And if you still haven’t picked up Malente’s FG disco hit “I Like It”, what are you waiting for?
Head over to the SPIN site to download The Suzan’s cover of The Strokes’ “Take It Or Leave It.” Not sure how they pegged our gals as “noise punks” (though they have been known to get noisy and/or punky when the spirit hits) but we wholeheartedly agree that the song is a must-hear!
More cover treats from The Suzan coming soon. Meanwhile get psyched for the release of Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat on Oct 26th!
