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.

We just sent you fine people over to RCRD LBL to grab the new Kid Sister single, but we’re doing it again because the FREEBIES DO NOT STOP.
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.

Stones Throw just released a new promo mp3 from James Pants’ “Crystal Lite” single, a remix of “Ka$h” that’s a total FG family affair courtesy of A-Trak and XXXChange. You can download it for free here or go and purchase the 320 version and/or vinyl 12″.

The second and most recent mix (curated by your faithful author) for the ever prolific homie Justin. Download it here.
In his own words, “There is no theme. There is no genre distinction. There is no big plan. There are only people and the music they like sharing for everyone to enjoy.” For anyone interested in listening and/or submitting, please visit STTEOTW. (via myself at REUP Mag)

Last week I started a new weekly in Brooklyn called FLASHING LIGHTS with my main d’amies DJ Ayres and Jubilee. The first one featured Klever as a special guest and was fun as hell (pics here), but I forgot to post the flyer on the FG blog beforehand. D’oh! Never again! The next few editions are going to be just as dope, and to go along with it, the three of us whipped together this promo mix featuring some of the tunes we’re dropping at the party – which is FREE every Friday night @ Public Assembly on North 6th St in Brooklyn (aka the old Galapagos). Download the mix here and check the tracklist after the jump. Read More

Grab the two latest remixes from our friend Mr Fingers: the Death Set’s “Negative Thinking” (out now on Bang Gang 12 Inches) and Big Gipp’s “Hot” (out now on Scion Audio/Visual). Right-click, save-as, rock out. More to come from the TS lab very soon, keep checking for the latest news and tourdates over on his MySpace. And if you haven’t copped the full “Cross The Dancefloor” single yet…
