Tommie Sunshine hit us up a while back with a hankerin to put “Right Hand Hi” over some Black Box. Who are we not to oblige? Our mailing list got first crack at this tune today (sign up on the right!!!!) but no reason why our blog friends shouldn’t get a chance to peep this TS DJ edit too. Enjoy!
This week we have Young Money vs Travis Porter, Playaz Circle w Lil Wayne, Da Undagods (aka Keith Murray and… Canibus!), Strong Arm Steady w The Jacka (and Madlib!) and De La Soul. Now THAT is a coalition, people! I’m a uniter not a divider. Read More
It’s a nice little snapshot of where Rocco’s been going in the studio as of late, more new jams from him very soon. Meanwhile, head over to his Tumblr to check upcoming tour dates in Europe and Australia for October, along with all sorts of random visual goodies.
Go download the homie Rusko’s new one for Mishka’s fun “Keep Watch” mixes, featuring a new “Slow Nails” take on his remix of Kid Sister’s “Pro Nails” (from our FG Remixed comp). While you’re at it, get Jokers Of The Scene and Congorock’s contributions to the eyeball series as well!
Slamming, jacking, sweating, pumping, thumping, EXPLODING… yep, must be Crookers.
The Italian DJ/production duo has been synonymous with all manner of intense dancefloor activity over the past few years, crafting absolutely massive (and massively influential) original tracks, along with remixes for some of the biggest names in pop. The Crookers’ version of Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite” snowballed from an underground club must-have to an international smash hit – so we’re obviously, undeniably proud to present this follow-up Fool’s Gold release.
The stacked “What Up Y’all” EP features the first official release of the title track (now properly mixed and mastered, with a shouted hook from Izza Kizza) as well as a hyperactive juke remix of Crookers’ anthem “Knobbers” by DJ Gant-Man, and two incredible takes on the follow-up Cudi collab “Embrace The Martian” courtesy of UK beat maestro Seiji – a crunching, hard-hitting “booty mix” and a squelchy acid version that take the dreamy original to two new heights. Take a listen to the acid mix right now at RCRD LBL.
You can also snag the dub version at Seiji’s blog. Grab these now and brace yourself for whatever the Crooks are cooking up next on their debut LP, coming soon.
As you might have read on ze Rolling Stone, Kid Sister is hitting the road next month in support of her long awaited debut Ultraviolet (in stores 11/17) and new single “Right Hand Hi” (which, if you haven’t copped yet, you can grab here thanks to our friends at RCRD LBL). Whoo!

Grab the new Chromeo jam “Night By Night” for free over at Green Label Sound. Guitar solos! More on the way, including remixes by Skream and Siriusmo. Don’t forget to cop the guys’ new DJ Kicks compilation, and check them on a handful of upcoming live dates before they hit the studio full-time to finish LP #3 – including a big night in NYC October 16th with a live show at Irving Plaza followed by a DJ gig (supported by some FG friends) at Webster Hall.
Head over to The Fader blog for Cubic Zirconia’s moody acid remix (or cover? It’s different when you’re a band….) of Kid Cudi’s “Make Her Say.” It’s the fourth in a series of FG commissioned mixes of the tune alongside Afrojack, Nadastrom and Sammy Bananas. There’s one more in the chamber too, but we’re holding on to that one for a sec…
You can also grab the CZ mix in this new zip of tracks from the band that they’re calling the Ready To Slide EP, which also includes a hardcore track (featuring drummer Sammy Siegler from Youth Of Today and a bunch of other NYHC staples – Congorock, you listening?) and a “Moments In Love”-sampling cut that’s become a CZ live staple, along with some other odds n ends.
