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.
They’ve decided to make this week “Fool’s Gold Week,” and to celebrate we’ve given them a different exclusive download or stream for every day. It started off with a Nacho Lovers megamix showcasing all the tracks off their forthcoming “Acid Life / Go On” single, continued with a promo download of Sammy Bananas’ “Ladies” off his Braids & Fades EP, and today we dropped a preview stream of A-Trak and Laidback Luke’s massive team-up “Shake It Down.” Tomorrow the Surkin remix of Nacho Lovers’ “Acid Life” (off our Scion comp) makes its debut, and then we close the week real big with another megamix, this time featuring tracks off Jokers Of The Scene’s long awaited Acid Bagg EP.
Finally! Kid Sister’s debut album is finished, mixed, and mastered, and we’re proud to share her new single with you all. It’s called “Family Reunion,” produced by Diplo, featuring a guest verse from David Banner and (most importantly) showcases our girl Melisa getting her rappa-ternt-sanga on. Download from RCRD LBL and enjoy, and stay tuned for more info on the Dream Date LP coming very soon…
Well, the big news today is that Braids & Fades is for sale (see below, so pumped about this!) but also new and noteworthy is my upcoming European tour. I set sail next week on my maiden voyage to dj across the Atlantic. But while I’m smashing it up overseas, you all can rock to all the exclusives on this mix I made to promote the trip! Or if you happen to live in Oslo, Trondheim, Helsinki, London or Nottingham, you can get ready to come and see me. Link and tracklisting following el jump.
LA Riots’ latest remix (for Crystal Castles’ “Crimewave”) finally, but rather than tossing the internets a mere mp3 leak, they decided to go for the gusto and drop this full DJ mix containing 11 of their biggest remixes to date (including their take on Kid Sister’s “Control” and their recent N.A.S.A. flip). They are generous lads! Download it here and check for Vol 2 in a few weeks.
