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
As mentioned earlier, Carte Blanche is the new superteam featuring our friends DJ Mehdi and Riton, partnered up in the name of all things house-y. Their debut EP is on the way (featuring the insane Kid Sister collab “Do! Do! Do!”) and to whet your appetite they’ve dropped this energetic “House Party Mix,” featuring that track and other EP jams alongside new and old favorites from the likes of Hot City, Inner City, and guys without City in their name like Armand Van Helden, Mike Dunn and more. Download and jam on it!
When he’s not busy getting tats, our pal Craze has been getting busy in the studio, working on new music for Slow Roast and remixes like this tasty lil charmer for Little Dragon, just liberated on the SR blog. Enjoy and check Craze (along with pals 12th Planet, Star Eyes and more) when he hits Webster Hall in NYC tonight. $1 before midnight w/ RSVP! Read More
