Kingdom is leaving very soon for his first Australian tour ever! For a taste of what’s in store, check out his LuckyMe mix (the second of their two FG mixes this month), featuring all sorts of brand new tracks, hidden R&B and juke jams, and more.
Download here and check the tracklist after the jump, along with all Kingdom’s OZ dates (and a pleasingly random YouTube commercial for the Sydney show). Read More
If you missed Telephoned knocking it out the park at our SXSW showcase, don’t fret: the dynamic duo hit the road this week for some shows on the coasts! Tour flyer with all dates and cities after the jump. Hometown fans can check them at Webster Hall this Friday for just $1 with RSVP!
To get in the mood, check out the latest creation from the Telephoned lab, a brand-new reworking of Kid Sister’s “Daydreaming” you can listen to at Spinner or download here. Sammy provides a tropical beat while Maggie channels some Dolores O’Riordan at the end for good measure. Summery! Read More
We’re getting flashbacks to the Screaming Bloody Murder days with the news that Sinden and Jokers Of The Scene are teaming up for some tour dates this month, starting 4/20 (woah) at Czar in Tampa, then hitting Columbus, Bloomington, SLC and Oklahoma City. The shows are FREE thanks to our pals at Scion, and you can RSVP for them here. Franki Chan and DJ Eleven will be along for the trek, don’t miss em.
Our friends at The Fader premiered a new Treasure Fingers club knocker today, here’s what they had to say:
“For some reason—let’s chalk it up to the longest winter ever—we have a serious yearning for disco right now. Not some crusty Saturday Night Fever antiquities but brand new how am I suddenly dancing in a club in my underwear over the top shit. Apparently, our brainwaves reached Fool’s Gold Records who just sent over Treasure Fingers‘ new song, which sounds exactly like that.”
FG friend Todd Edwards just released his new one “I Might Be” on Scion A/V, backed with remixes by Joy Orbison, MJ Cole, Feadz and My Dear Disco. Download the whole thing over here.
When you’re done, hit XLR8R for a new profile on the producer, featuring some quotes from Kingdom, who’s debut “Mind Reader” features a most excellent remix by Todd that you can grab on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold (12″ vinyl on the way!)
Head over to RCRD LBL (or hit the widget below) for the latest installment of Track’s fan-favorite series of “remixtapes” – a combination of his own official remixes for artists from Chromeo to Kid Cudi to Zero 7, alongside unofficial flips of Wale, Kenna and more – most of which feature brand new raps from Track and the rest of his Honor Roll crew.
One of the highlights is “Prime Factors” (which makes it’s debut here), a half time hip hop jam based around the rave piano breakdown from Jokers Of The Scene’s “Baggy Bottom Boys.” And DJ Tap.10 is on the cuts as always!
Cop a physical copy on 4/15, release party details coming soon…
Nick Catchdubs whipped up a new mix for Scotland’s LuckyMe collective (Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, et al) and you can download it from their mixtape page (alongside other goodies from BenUFO, FaltyDL, HudMo and many more), grab the direct mp3 link, or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes here.
Some nice words on it from Dom (half of the crew’s The Blessings): “Last year we April Fooled about this and this year it just sorta happened naturally. Nick mailed us out the blue a while back looking for Rustie’s Neko joint and a couple weeks later me and mo were standing in Austin in mother fucking shorts, eating nachos at The Fader Fort at SXSW, watching Nick blast out that new Drake edit. Shit was one of the most perfect moments of our tour. Nick’s so effortless with this shit, spanning so much in the 45 minutes it’s impossible to deny Fools Gold as one of the leading dance music labels of our time.”
Calgary’s Hi-Fi Club has been a home away from home for many Fool’s Gold DJs on Canadian runs. So of course we’re psyched that the club’s resident jam-masters Smalltown DJs and Wax Romeo aka Smalltown Romeo are hitting NYC tonight for a guest set at Flashing Lights (88 Palace in Chinatown, RSVP here!!!) alongside Nick Catchdubs, DJ Ayres and Jubilee.
