What’s been up with space-age slapatician and Fool’s Gold’s resident East Bay representer Trackademicks? Earlier this month, he dropped the second volume of his Remixtape series, which you can download here while reading track-by-track (hiyo!) commentary from the producer himself over on the Trackademia blog. Want more? Dude’s handiwork is all over the new Lyrics Born album, which dropped this past Tuesday. And guess what! Last week also saw Track (and the Honor Roll crew) rocking with us at the SF stop of the Fool’s Gold x Dim Mak tour, video of which is watchable over here. Yee! Check for Track’s “Enjoy What You Do” single (backed with some big remixes as well as b-side banger “Topsidin”) out on your favorite gold-plated independent record label later this summer.

Well, now the likely lads have it up on the internet for the world to enjoy. Send fi di hacksaw! Take out di tongue!

Born and raised in Cleveland, currently residing in BK, crazy melodic flow… ladies and gentlemen, it’s Kid Cudi! It’s not a stretch to say that his debut single “Day ‘N’ Nite” (cop on vinyl or iTunes or Juno or anywhere else fine recorded media is sold) is one of the most hypnotic and original tracks to come out of our scene in some time. It’s also not a stretch to say that this remix of “Day ‘N’ Nite” by Italian deejay superstars Crookers is ABSOLUTELY UNFUCKWITHABLE. Its not on the physical or digital release, but you can get it right here for free at RCRD LBL.
