As you may have read, A-Trak has a brand new, officially licensed mix CD coming out on April 14th called Infinity +1. (Check the schmoove cover artwork by Dust La Rock. It’s all in the lips.) The mix features everyone from John Dahlbäck to Kid Sister to Gonzalez to NORE, and you can see the full tracklisting after the jump. Trizzy will be touring stateside in support of the disc, and you can check those dates – where else? – after the jump.
In other A-Trak updatery, you can try your luck at winning a limited-edition A-Trak Running Man Serato picture disc over at thefader.com, perhaps the one place on the internets that likes to say “after the jump” as much as we do. Read More

Our promo-only Fool’s Gold Remixed 12″s finally arrived in the house house house. Four of the biggest tracks off our Scion A/V compilation from this past fall on one thick slab of vinyl: Chromeo’s funked up take on Treasure Fingers’ “Cross The Dancefloor,” Surkin’s choppy version of Nacho Lovers’ “Acid Life,” Rusko dropping dubstep bombs all over Kid Sister’s “Pro Nails,” and Jori Hulkonnen’s hypnotic, techy remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day ‘N’ Nite.”
This is a limited, one-time only pressing for friends, fam and assorted DJs, but we were able to get a few copies over to Turntable Lab, so cop it while you can!

Sure sure it’s on Kitsune but it’s my single goddammit and we put the Fool’s Gold logo on there! So I’m putting this on this-here blog.

You also get remixes by Sinden (pounding!) and Boys Noize (paranoia-inducing!) and best of all, my very own Kitsune head drawering.

The latest party-starters from our label were unveiled to the world this week in the form of Four Color Zack & Pretty Titty’s Sing Sing Breaks and Sammy Bananas’ Braids & Fades.
FCZ x PT’s single (named after the raucous Sing Sing party they created in Seattle) reinvents the party record for the skinny jeans/big sneaker generation with a collection of gloriously stoopid Jock Jam riffs, gigantic drum fills, and looped-up chants, all with DJ-friendly extended intros and accapella outros for mixing. Sammy’s EP is the follow-up to last year’s High Top Fades, upping the ante conceptually (every track is a cleverly reworked tribute to a different 90s female r&b anthem, hence the Braids & Fades title) while showing off Sammy’s rapid growth as a producer. His sound is more funky than fidget, ditching trendy production tricks to craft a genuinely refreshing take on club music that’s pure pop satisfaction! Turntable Lab has you covered:
