Check out the newly released Jersey Shore soundtrack album for Kid Sister’s “Lookout Weekend,” a cover of Debbie Deb’s freestyle classic produced by Nadastrom and guest-starring Nina Sky. The album also contains fist pumpers from our friends Diplo, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, and… well it’s hard to concentrate when it takes soooo much self control not to flip this with Kid Sis, the Nadastroms and the NS twins into the most epic Photoshop face swap of all time. Dream big!
Bonus beat: check Nadastrom’s new Mixpak podcast for more Fool’s Gold action, including a clever Congorock edit and a preview of Dave Nada’s forthcoming LA Riots remix.

Electrodiscomaniacs, rejoice! Alexander Robotnick’s new Analog Sessions LP is out this week, courtesy of our pals at This Is Music.

Download the club mix of “Fun Fare” at Fact Magazine for a taste, and look for the LP at a shop near you (Amazon.co.uk is shipping the CD+DVD combo later in the month).
If that’s not enough Robotnick for you (and of course it isn’t!) grab his Fool’s Gold single “Obsession For The Disco Freaks” on Beatport, iTunes and vinyl, backed by great remixes from Nacho Lovers, Li’ll Bo Tweak and Freeform Five.
