In the latest edition of the Grand Theft Auto video game franchise (flying off shelves and decaying the morals of a nation right now!) you can listen to the Bag Raiders remix of KIM’s “By The Time They Reach You” on the François K-helmed “Electro Choc” station. Let their OZ jams soundtrack your nefarious deeds! Here’s a video clip of said track in action. Quoth the Bag Raiders, “Whoever did this, you rock a bunch like gravel…”
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.
At the Fool’s Gold WMC show, Nacho Lovers dropped a Cutty Ranks vocal edit of Style of Eye’s “The Big Kazoo” that had all the earlybirds in the place doing that Tim Allen “huuurrrh?!” surprise noise and wondering just what the hell was going on. Well, now the likely lads have it up on the internet for the world to enjoy. Send fi di hacksaw! Take out di tongue!
Check our brothers in bass Alex and Eli filling in for Mark Ronson’s Authentic Sh!t program this past Friday and dropping hella exclusives (including a preview of the Nacho Lovers 12″ out on Fool’s Gold later this spring). Grab the mp3 and the tracklist right here.
“OK… (take a breath) Everyone who is poor and who doesn’t have a DUI on their record best ta LISTEN UP! Every last one of y’all should know about and participate IN car sharing! It’s the best thing that’s ever happened ever in life. Instead of lugging all your heavy laundry around town through snow drifts in sub zero weather in a 90 year old babushka lady cart you can now DRIVE it to the laundromat in record time and have time left over to shop or eat or drive to your man’s house across town! No more bus stops! No more frostbite! No more devonte!!! YAY!”
Even more Canada! Summer Lovers Unlimited just released Dandi Wind’sSacrificial album as a limited digipack, containing remixes by Fool’s Gold-ians Nick Catchdubs and Jokers of the Scene, as well as joints from Bitchee Bitchee Ya Ya Ya, South Central and more. You can purchase the whole LP on the DW MySpace for five buckaroos, and listen to the Catchdini take on “Adolescent” here.
Jokers of the Scene’s remix for their electro-pop pals Vitamins For You’s “Flesh Python” (GROSS TITLE DOODZ!) just hit the internets, you can download it here and purchase on limited-edition vinyl here. It is rumored to be the last-ever record pressed in Canada! Stay tuned for more JOTS remixes for the likes of Muscles, South Rakkas Crew, SLUTT and our own Kid Cudi.
