Chromeo just uploaded some accapellas from their Fancy Footwork LP for your remixmash enjoyment: “Call Me Up,” “Fancy Footwork” and “Momma’s Boy.” Download and get to work! While you’re at it, be sure to leave them some messages on their newly-restored MySpace to let Dave and P know you’re psyched their social networking page was rescued from an internet black hole.

Our boy Sammy just dropped this mix to help promote his new 12″ on Fool’s Gold (which you can buy on vinyl at Turntable Lab and cop digitally from our Snocap store). It’s pretty damn FRESHHHHHHH, here’s what he had to say about it:
“I made this mix as a companion to “High Top Fades,” my new Fool’s Gold EP. The tracks on the EP are all dancefloor remixes of early 90′s hits, and working on the songs gave me the idea of making a mix themed around selections in the Hip-Pop cannon from this era. In particular, the mix highlights artists who sported the hair style referenced in the title. Its 55 minutes of fly hair and fresh beats to take you back to your 6th grade dance. Or take me back at least…”
Get it now:

Kanye dropped his Can’t Tell Me Nothing mixtape this weekend. And while we are obviously biased – shit is real dope!
Contained among the Graduation snippets, Common album previews, and anecdotes about porn, there’s a spanking-new version of Kid Sister’s “Pro Nails” complete with a verse from the Louis Vuitton Don.
“Yo this is my shit right here, A-Trak didn’t ask me to rap on this shit, it wasn’t no favor or none of that shit – this is my shit!”
You can give it a listen over at the Kid Sister MySpace page. Leave her a comment too!
