Head over to the Federation Sound blog to download the new Lexx-I-Con mixtape, a dope (and very thorough!) primer on the tunes of Mr Lexx, courtesy of Max Glazer and Kenny Meez of Federation. Appropriately enough, this collection of dancehall detonators closes out with Lexx’s Congorock collab “Babylon,” perhaps THE definition of BIG TUNE!
Maybe you remember Starlito from his stint as a pre-Young Money Lil Wayne associate who went by All Star Cashville Prince (yep, “Grey Goose”), or maybe you’ve picked up one of his critically acclaimed mixtapes (both new and old). Either way, dude has a certain something in the flow department, and he’s decided to lend it to Bag Raiders’ “Shooting Star,” which you can download here.
For more Bag Raiders raps, grab “All The Girls” featuring Donnis from their Fool’s Gold EP Big Fun, available from iTunes, Beatport and all other digital retailers worth their salt, as well as nice and loud FG vinyl!
As you may have read, Nacho Lovers’ “Deeper” single is out next Tuesday (5/25) and in honor of the new release, the lads have put together this promo mix, featuring cuts from the single along with “classics and future classics” from the likes of Chez Damier, D’Pac, DJ Duke, Chicago Skyway, Black Jazz Consortium and more. Enjoy!
Today, friend of Fool’s Gold Riva Starr dropped a free mixtape called Back To The Bass with simple yet strict instructions on Twitter: “NO LAPTOP SPEAKERS PLEEZ!”
Grab it here – just click the arrow on the right of the Soundcloud player.
I really like the mix, it’s full of that Made To Play / Dirtybird style of cooky bass music. In fact, around the 54 minute mark, you’ll hear the Martin Brothers remix for Kicks Like A Mule’s upcoming FG release “Funky 4″
Speaking of free mixtapes, mine is coming on Monday!
Amen, y’all! We’re doubling up on the Foolcasts this Friday for a special hands-in-the-air, breakbeat-centric edition courtesy of our friends Willy Joy and Camo UFOs.
Willy is up to bat first with his “Oldskool ‘Ardcore Vibes” mix, collecting all manner of upper-register BPMs and ecstatic piano riffs, new and old. Camo UFOs provide their recent junglist-and-more “R U SICK!” mix, burned on CD promos at recent shows and available in downloadable form for the first time here. (To sweeten the deal, the UFOs have also sent over an exclusive VIP mix of their remix of Count and Sinden’s “Mega,” which you can grab here.)
Subscribe to the Foolcast via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader at the main Foolcast page, where you can also download the twomixes directly (right click and save-as). Tracklists after the jump.
If you’re feeling the mixes, check for these guys’ equally raved-out upcoming projects, including a Willy Joy / Rob Threezy collab EP and a Camo UFOs / Sinden team up on G’s new label Grizzly, among other choons / remixes / shows etc. Lighta! Read More
