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 two mixes 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!

Head over to The Fader to download the new remix by Jokers Of The Scene for O. Children, which “takes it from gothy new wave to pretty epic squelchy techno anthem.” Nice!
