The latest edition of our blog Q&A series of friends-n-fam brain pickage features none other than Chicago sons Flosstradamus, who recently took a bit of a break from touring to focus on production and studio work, including their debut single with Caroline from Chairlift, De La Soul’s recent Nike+ project Are You In and a slew of remixes including Trackademicks’ “Enjoy What You Do” and this Totally Michael mix, a collab with FG’s DJ Gant-Man.

After the jump, J2K drops knowledge behind-the-scenes of all those productions, as well as what its like to have your face plastered across billboards throughout the country, and the pitfalls of buying synths on Craigslist. Read More

Tanyademicks

Posted on May 13th, 2009

Despite a personal pet peeve against bands with people names (Why they make it hard on themselves? Hello, Chester French!) I’ve always rooted for Tanya Morgan ever since hearing their track “Pretty,” a charming lil number built on warbled BBD lyrics and a random Roy Orbison loop, sounding exactly like three friends hanging out and making music for no other reason than the fact that it’s fun to hang out with your friends and make music. Sound familiar?

They’re back this week with a new record called Brooklynatti – they’ve stepped up their production values (and promo hustle) but the vibe remains the same. As a bonus beat, they’ve also leaked “What We Do,” a collaboration with FG’s own Trackademicks, and you can download it for free at the Upper Playground blog.

Foolcast 001: Nacho Lovers "I Nacho NY"

Posted on May 9th, 2009

It’s about time we started a monthly podcast, so here it goes – the inaugural FOOLCAST, done up all nice by Toronto’s Nacho Lovers. The resulting “I Nacho NY” mix is, in their words, an “ode to New York house from the 1990′s. Everything is either by a NY artist, NY remixer, was released on a NY Label, or just fit that New York ‘sound’ of the time. This is stuff we are heavily influenced by when it comes to making music.”

Download the podcast (and subscribe to the whole series to get future mixes as soon as they drop!) at iTunes or via your favorite RSS reader at the FG podcast page. Tracklist after the jump, more heat on the way! Read More
