This Friday (7.10) at Glasslands in Brooklyn, prepare for one bass-ed out birthday celebration with Kingdom, who turns one year older at his Club Vortex residency with a little help from friends Maluca of Mad Decent and DJs Nguzunguzu and Total Freedom (excellent MySpace name!) of LA’s Wildness party.
The DJs also put together a new mix for the party, featuring a bunch of brand new + unreleased Kingdom tracks. We asked our royal pal if there was a tracklist and he replied “sadly not really. but kinda good too… its in the great tradition of mysterious list-less mixtapes i guess?…in that they sent me the most fragmented tracklist from three different email addresses and half of the info was listed as “?????” they recorded parts live mixing on vinyl, parts on ableton, parts on CDJs, and recorded live sound effects, vocals, and live instruments over the whole thing (which is what they do at their wildness party in L.A. too).” Download it here and check for yourself!

Over on DJ Mehdi’s excellent blog, when he’s not shouting out Compton’s Most Wanted, Wu samples and his favorite international deejays, he’s posting up gems from his “vault” of unfinished and unreleased remixes. The newest websclusive is this remix of Crookers and Kid Cudi’s “Embrace The Martian” that was never quite finalized but still jams. Enjoy, and stay tuned for the Fool’s Gold Crookers EP this remix was first intended for, featuring new mixes of “Embrace…” by Seiji, DJ Gant-Man’s take on “Knobbers” and the finished version of “What Up Y’all” with Izza Kizza vox. Out soon! And while you’re staying tuned, Mehdi’s RED BLACK AND BLUE: Some Remixes By DJ Mehdi is out 9/9/09 on Ed Banger.

Sadly kicking off the fourth week of Rappin Ass Thursday’s with the news that Michael Jackson has passed away. Here’s an appropriate tune from The Finisher featuring yet another king who is no longer with us.

Young Money’s hit “Every Girl” is inescapable on the radio in NYC (and most likely where you live too) this summer, and while we more than agree with the moral of the song, hearing Wayne and Drake every ten minutes gets to be a little much – enough is enough! Fortunately DJ Gant-Man saves the day with a clever remix that keeps the tune fresh and jukin. Enjoy!
“Every Girl (Gant-Man Back It Up Juke Mix)” DIRTY [mp3]
“Every Girl (Gant-Man Back It Up Juke Mix)” CLEAN [mp3]
Check Gant out if you’re in Chicago tonight or Paris this Friday (and be sure to wish him a happy birthday!) and cop his Fool’s Gold single “Juke Dat Girl” on iTunes or Beatport.

Thunderheist – Nothing 2 Step 2 (Sammy Bananas Remix) [MP3]
Another week, another epic remix from your man Sammy B! (why do I give all this stuff away??) Thunderheist is a Toronto duo on Big Dada who are currently on tour for forever in support of their newly released, self-titled album. Grahm is a beast on the boards and Isis is one hell of a live performer (secretly she can really rap her ass off too.) I had a blast making this one so cop, pop and rock.

Psyched about this week’s edition because it features a lot of tunes I haven’t really seen get much shine on the usual internet channels – which is exactly what I wanted this column to showcase (as opposed to my two cents on, like, “Death Of Autotune.” No shots…)
Hit the jump for new Bone Thugs & Harmony, TI, Camp Lo, Killer Mike, DJ Deadeye and Friends, Bounceback, and – just because – a dancehall song. Read More
