Toronto’s Curb Crawlers blog is a daily bookmark over here at FG HQ, one of the most enjoyable and consistent spots on the interweb for unpretentious electronic music of all stripes. So it’s a real treat to see the Crawlers commission fellow Toronto connoisseurs Nacho Lovers for an exclusive mix. Download it and check the tracklist after the jump!

The latest remixers to hit up Treasure Fingers’ new-school classic (yeah I said it, fight me) “Cross The Dancefloor” are NYC’s Designer Drugs, who keep the original track’s singalong melody but throw in some tastefully wobbly bassline action and two-steppin breakbeats to keep things moving. Grab it for free exclusively at RCRD LBL, where there’s three other Treasure Fingers jams for your listening enjoyment, or just download right here courtesy of their handy little widget (wait a sec for the track to load).

Electric Fields is an electronic (duh) music and media arts festival in Ottawa that’s “dedicated to the presentation of new and significant performance and installation works created at the crossroads of art, science and technology.” It should make sense, then, for Ottawa’s resident electronic wizards Jokers Of The Scene to get involved. They’ve made an exclusive mix which you can download for free until the festival closes on 11/23. Grab it here:

You can also check out the Jokers alongside Treasure Fingers in Mexico City this Saturday, check the flyer and info here.

Daniel from LA Riots just sent over this clip from the booth during his set at
Berlin’s Ghent’s massive (35,000 sold-out tickets!!!) I Love Techno festival from this past weekend, along with a recording of his live set that you can download here:
“On the recording you can actually hear the crowd chanting in unison…thousands of people all chanting like they were at a soccer match!” says Daniel. They call it “football” over there homie, but we’re feeling you!!!

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.

The man, the myth, the Pase Rock has a new single coming out in a matter of weeks (days!) and you can download the a-side banger “Get Money Kids” for free over at RCRD LBL right 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…
