What’s the Cool Collar Scholar been up to? Catch up with these quick Honor Roll bullets, more Trackademicks news on the way. Rock with him this Friday (9.4) alongside Alexander Spit, J Billion and more at Slims in SF.
Our friends (and NYCs most stylish married couple, sorry Hov + B) Lindsey and DJ Myles are out in Japan right now for Opening Ceremony’s… opening (ha!) of their first ever JP boutique. It’s got jams from Dam Funk, Theophilus, Trey Songz and DUCK SAUCE so of course we approve. Download it at Lindsey’s blog.
Here’s some footage (shot by our dude Red Foxxworth no less) of Donnis’ mixtape release party under the Brooklyn Bridge. You had to have been there to feel the sweaty good vibes, but this gives you a little idea (plus Kid Sis + Nick Catchdubs check in with some cameo shouts). And if you haven’t grabbed Diary Of An ATL Brave yet… STOP SLEEPING! After the jump, check Donnis and Pill freestyling over “My Patna Dem” at East Village Radio. Read More
For this particularly lucky edition of RAT, check out select new jams from Trick Daddy, Freddie Gibbs, Clyde Carson, D-Lo feat. Sleepy D, and Green Lantern and Styles P feat. NORE and Uncle Murda. Read More
When our homegirl Gina Turner told us she wanted to contribute a mix for the Foolcast series, we told her it was only on the condition that she title it “Daaamn Gina!” – it’s finally here, and boy is that a theme!
Subscribe to our Foolcast series via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader at the main page (you can also download Gina’s mix directly there). And be sure to bump this hip house-inspired labor of love in your Iroc-Z all summer – check the tracklist, which is as now-school as it is throwback, including a brand new tune Gina and Laidback Luke whipped up together as “Nouveau Yorican,” after the jump.
We dropped the excellent Afrojack remix of Kid Cudi’s “Make Her Say” earlier this month, and are as just as excited to gift you with another official, FG-commissioned mix of the tune today. It comes courtesy of DC ravemasters Nadastrom, who turned the track into a stripped down, dark and deep club monster – download, play it out and enjoy!
More “Make Her Say” mixes are in the chamber so stay tuned for surprises! Relatedly: you can also grab some remixes of Cudi’s collab with NORE “Floatin In The Sky” over at Media Contender, thanks to our homies at Undocumented.
Update: zShare’s acting a fool so here’s a new zip with the Nadastrom and Afrojack mixes.
We’ve shouted out our UK mates Greenmoney and their excellent radio show before, hopefully y’all have been paying attention and downloading each week’s new selection of heaters while it’s up for download on Brooklyn Radio. But just in case… here’s a reminder to grab the latest episode, featuring a guest mix from buzzed-about producer Joy Orbison.
Stay tuned for Greenmoney’s debut single on Fool’s Gold very soon, and check them out in London this Sunday at the Notting Hill Carnival rave (William 4th Harrow Rd) with Ms Dynamite, Crazy Cousins and more. Also peep this interview with the lads on the Fabric blog.
