Check out these Kid Cudi 4th of July freestyles from the always-entertaining Tim Westwood radio show, including some off-the-head bars over Hard House Banton’s UK funky anthem “Sirens” (and some Jada and Red Cafe for good measure). Check back here for news on some new FG-commissioned Cudi remixes coming very soon – and no, they’re not for “Day ‘N’ Nite”…
Check out new-school radio icon Peter Rosenberg rocking Fool’s Gold garms in the crowd during Asher Roth’s performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night. Quite a bit of screen time no less! Good looking out.
Cop your own “classic colorway” tee shirt (mens and ladies sizes!) at the FG Online Store. Props to Tap.10 for the late night find.
Check out the latest episode of James Mountain’s Escape Plan on Ministry of Sound Radio for an interview on the beach with A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs, as well as a guest mix from Catchy featuring a slew of new and recent tunes from the FG roster.
Click here to listen to the latest Ministry of Sound radio show from UK production duo Greenmoney (Alex from Bugz In The Attic and big homie Leo from YoYo), featuring all sorts of UK funky house goodies and original productions, including Greenmoney’s remix of DJ Gant-Man’s upcoming Fool’s Gold single “Juke Dat Girl.”
This particular episode also features a guest set from another one of our favorites, Seiji, who rocks FG exclusives of his own with two mixes of Crookers and Kid Cudi’s “Embrace The Martian,” both of which will drop on our Crookers EP out later this spring. Safe!
This Friday on The FADER’s “The Let Out” on East Village Radio, they had ATLien and Killer Mike associate Pill by to kick some rhymes, and whaddayaknow, one of the tracks he goes over just happens to be Trackademicks’ “Topsidin” instrumental from the “Enjoy What You Do / Topsidin” single (available here and everywhere else digital music is sold, vinyl on its way!) Sure, it’s a “freestyle” in the most literal sense, but as always it’s cool to hear other rappers on our stuff.
Elsewhere on the internet airwaves, you can listen to this extensive Trackademicks interview with Streets Is Talking Radio right here. “In the words of Mac Mall, this interview is full of ‘Nathan But Game,’” says Track. Grab it!
If you were up on your FG Twitter last night, you would have known to tune into WNYU 89.1 FM to check A-Trak guesting live on DJ Eclipse’s Halftime Show, which was celebrating its 11th Anniversary. Other guests include Primo, Da Beatminerz, and Tony Touch, all dropping that real schittt: crazy rarities, homemade clean radio edits, and (of course) lots of wicky wickies! Stream the archived broadcast here. Also Nick says “Go Bobcats!”
This weekend Jokers Of The Scene hit the United Kingdom for shows at London’s Cargo (2.20) and Glasgow’s Arches (2.21) with L-Vis 1990 and Brodinski, respectively.
