Don’t miss this week’s installment of my new “Around the World” column over at the Fader blog: Paris at Mehdi & Fafi’s, more mastering in London, shooting the shit with Armand Van Helden and Herve, computer crashes in Rome… it’s all there!
In other recent NL news, a teaser megamix of their debut single “Acid Life / Go On” as well as a Surkin remix of “Acid Life” are both up on RCRD LBL. Catch the guys in America on the Fool’s Gold Remixed tour, coming to a city near you and free with RSVP.
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.

It’s funny to me that they used that picture. That pic was taken at a gifting suite at Winter Music Conference a year and a half ago. This rep from a headphone company was like “hey we’re gonna give you some headphones, can we get a picture of you with them?” and that was supposed to be the end of that. Why would someone think it’s a press photo? Am I supposed to be like “hey I’m a DJ so I walk around with headphones around my neck, even when I walk the dog!”
Michael C. Place is a English designer, former member of the Designers Republic (I’ll get to them in another post) and the artist featured in this French advertisement (with a song you may have heard). Now if i could only get Pritt to send me some of those correction rollers..
Tonight at Alife NYC there’s a shindig to celebrate the release of the inimitable ?uestlove’s custom “Air Questo” AF1s, and our own Treasure Fingers will be DJing.
