I’m surprised we didn’t do this earlier! Chromeo is my brother with our childhood friend, Fool’s Gold is my label… It’s only natural to get Fool’s Gold producers to remix Chromeo. Yet it took Bacardi to make it happen. Bacardi’s B-Live program brings you these funkier-than-thou remixes of the slick album closer “100%.” You all know Treasure Fingers from his infectious two-stepper ‘Cross The Dancefloor’ and multiple remixes as of late. If you’re up on your new releases you probably heard Nacho Lovers’ inaugural and timeless single “Acid Life.” And to flip things a little we recruited Bay Area rapper-slash-producer Trackademicks, whose single “Enjoy What You Do” is just about to drop! Start downloading…NOW.
Pasey Pase’s latest is a total FG friends-n-famathon, with Eli Escobar on the beat and Dim Mak on the label (and Jersey’s own Rime handling cover art duties!) so be sure to spend real money on it December 2nd. There’s also a video contest, and a little bird tells us a Nacho Lovers remix is on it’s way as well…
Here’s another jewel off of Kid Sister’s forthcoming Dream Date LP, a little ditty called “Get Fresh.” Over a slumping, ZZT-flipping beat courtesy of A-Trak and XXXChange, KS drops deft rhymes for the kickers in your Mer-ce-des. Download it for free at RCRD LBL and stay tuned for more. Wamp wamp!
The latest cut to be blessed with the Trackademicks touch is Janelle Monae’s “Many Moons.” You might have heard Ronson, A-Trak and myself bantering over it on East Village Radio this past Friday, and now you can watch the remix video and download the mp3. Ayo technology!
Complex premiered the track with some appropriately gonzo “cover art.” Grab the original on iTunes (and all other fine digital retailers) and pick up the wax at Turntable Lab. The beloved Crookers remix is going to be hitting vinyl very soon as well…
Hello from Helsinki! My first Euro tour has been swell so far; I can conclusively report that Scandinavians have great parties and that the hotel breakfasts are off the chain. Extra props to Patski Love & Chris Stallion a.k.a JUICY from Oslo, Even who took me skateboarding in Trondheim and Sampo and Jussi who have been excellent hosts in Helsinki (here’s some video from that show). Today I’m off to London and the second half of the trip, dates and flyers on the MySpace.
Here’s a little treat that my girl Maggie Horn and I cooked up a few days before I left. It’s a cover (not a remix) of the recent T-Pain hit “Can’t Believe It.” We did a pretty loose interpretation (don’t expect Maggie to even TRY that Wayne verse) but we’re both very excited about it.
