Y’all ready for some ravin? This weekend the massive Electric Daisy Carnival pops off in Los Angeles, and of course Fool’s Gold will be helping to put 100,000+ hands in the air.
A-Trak is pulling double duty as part of Travis x A-Trak (Friday) and Duck Sauce (Saturday), and having previewed the stage shows for both, all we can say is: y’all are in for some big surprises! Congorock, LA Riots, Laidback Luke, and more friends will also be doing it big throughout the weekend. Get psyched! More FG festival appearances on deck…
Rappin Ass Thursdays, the column you know and love, comes to life in the Chi this week in the form of a new monthly party of the same name at Beauty Bar. The tunes are provided by Flosstradamus and special guest (and RAT curator) Nick Catchdubs. Come through this Thursday, dougie will be taught!
The CFCF remix of Nacho Lovers’ “Deeper” became a favorite of DJs and bloggers alike when we offered it up as a freebie around the “Deeper” single release. If you’re fiending for some more of that particular Canadian combo, check Nachos and CFCF together this Saturday in Toronto for Blackberry’s “The Block” event, and peep the Nachos’ remix of CFCF’s “Come Closer” out June 29th, preview below.
Our TX pal DJ Sober is launching a new all-vinyl night called Dope On Plastic this Saturday (6/12) at The Cavern in Dallas, and we’ve provided some FG wax for giveaways at the night (as the Congorock and Nacho Lovers 12″s in the above photo suggest).
On June 26th, Nacho Lovers will be repping FG at the NYC edition of the Intel / Vice “Creators Project,” DJing alongside performances from Interpol, Mark Ronson, Salem, and many many more. RSVP for free entry to the all-day event at Milk Studios.
For more Nachos: hit the Turntable Lab blog for a quick Q&A in conjunction with their new single “Deeper” (a record you may have heard us talking about before…) and then head over to the TTL digital site for an accompanying chart featuring lots of hidden house heatrocks.
This Thursday (6/10) our own Sammy Bananas and Telephoned will be performing at the always-jamming YoYo party at Notting Hill Arts Club in London. In a nice bit of timing, Busy P and Uffie will also be in the building, rocking for the Uffie album release. They’ll be joined by Ali Love along with the YoYo residents, Seb Chew and Leo Greenslade (one half of FG’s Greenmoney). Festivities! You don’t wanna miss this one.
