Way back in 2007 when we were first launching the label, The Cool Kids’ debut 12″ single was scheduled as part of our earliest batch of releases. But when the duo decided to drop their Bake Sale EP first on Chocolate, we held back the entire vinyl run so it could be used for a future box set. And waited. And waited… until a week or so ago, when we saw that our old vinyl was starting to hit stores as-is, a random little surprise for you (and us!)
Buy it at Turntable Lab to get “88″ (along with the previously unavailable on vinyl “I Rock,” “Gold & A Pager” and “What It Iz”). And check for the Cool Kids full-length When Fish Ride Bicycles dropping soon, it sounds pretty fun.

As Kid Sis puts the finishing touches on her looooooong awaited LP, we went ahead and dropped this treat especially for all the record spinners out there who were her earliest supporters – an official single for album cut “Get Fresh” exclusively on vinyl and Beatport, where you can buy it today! It comes complete with brand new remixes from homies Zombie Nation (who’s “Lower State Of Consciousness” as ZZT provided sample fodder for the original) and Alex Gopher. To whet your appetite, here’s the Gopher mix courtesy of our friends at RCRD LBL.
Annie Mac and Andy George have already been rinsing the new mixes on BBC, and they’re sure to light up DJ sets all throughout Winter Music Conference and SXSW – where you can conveniently catch Kid Sister performing live every night of the fest, including the late night Fool’s Gold After Dark spectacular on 3/19. Check the info on her MySpace.

The latest edition of the We Make It Good mix series (what up Pretty Titty!) comes courtesy of none other than Crookers, who turn in a blend of Italian jams both old (vintage 45s and tambourine tracks) and new (their own shit) along with bangers from the usual suspects (Rusko, Mujava, Oizo) so basically what we’re saying is you should go check it out here.
There’s a ton of big things coming up this year for the duo, including remixes for megapopstars, sure-to-be-triumphant Coachella and Sonar gigs, and…A FOOL’S GOLD SINGLE! The forthcoming Crooks release will feature a finished version of new track “What Up Y’all” (the leaked demo is already a hit, word to Hype Machine) as well as exclusive remixes of their fan favorites “Knobbers” and “Embrace The Martian” by DJ Gant-Man and Seiji of Bugz In The Attic fame. It’s sounding great so far, and we’re excited to drop it on you fine people next month. Stay tuned!

As promised, the debut single from Congorock is out now as a digital exclusive on Turntable Lab, with all other web stores to follow in two weeks (and vinyl berry berry soon!). It’s the seventeenth (!!!) release on our fine little label, and we couldn’t be happier.
>> BUY “RUNARK” ON TTL DIGITAL
“Runark” is a a perfect calling card for Congorock, four-and-a-half minutes of breakbeat thump and raved up 8-bit synth drops. But don’t take our word for it, check the preview on RCRD LBL.
The single comes backed with an amazing extended remix by Jokers Of The Scene as well as two more new Congorock tunes, “Exodus” and “Hybro.” The digital release also features an additional Runark remix by His Majesty Andre. More from this Italian original coming soon!

YEEE! Today we’re proud to finally release the debut solo single by our big bay homey Trackademicks. The a-side is uptempo slapper “Enjoy What You Do,” backed by huge club remixes from Flosstradamus and Sammy Bananas, and on the b-side you have the smoothed-out stylings of “Topsidin,” featuring MoxMore of Trackademicks’ Honor Roll crew.
Actual factual vinyl is on its way – meanwhile, you can cop the whole thing right this second from iTunes, Rhapsody and anywhere else fine digital music is sold. The Rhapsody folks also filmed Track dropping Bay knowledge for their “Rock Star Guide To The Galaxy” series, and you can watch it here.
If that’s not enough, you can preview “Enjoy What You Do” over at RCRD LBL or on this handly likkle widget below. And don’t forget the single release party TOMORROW (2/18) at Vessel in SF!

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!
