Our resident Northern Cali representer Trackademicks just celebrated his born day (salud!) and filmed a new tune for the occasion at the party. Says he: “The above clip is footage of the most epic Birfday I have had to date. And halfway through the clip it gets better… Just because you read that Hyphy was ‘dead’ in some publication, doesn’t mean the Bay forgot how to go DUMB.”
More pics from the celebration here. Track’s Enjoy What You Do single is in production now, release details announced very soon!
This past Friday we had our 2nd annual Fool’s Gold holiday jam. Even with a NYC blizzard in full effect all day, the true believers came out to party with the FG fam and our special guests DJ Premier and Cipha Sounds. Kid Sister and Trackademicks cut it up on the dancefloor, Daniel LA Riots and Linus JOTS were spotted with Pepsi-n-Hennessy coctails in hand, Primo dropped “Hold It Now Hit It,” and a festive time was had by all. (Dust swears he saw Macaulay Culkin in the mix but I don’t believe him he needs more people).
I haven’t posted in awhile because I just recently moved back to BK after being a World Traveler Adventurer for a couple months as well as having a spine-crushing workload. As the records have come out of storage and gone back on the shelf I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite classics with you..
Masters of the Universe (Joey Negro)- Space Talk (Strictly Underground)
Pal Joey- Party Time (Loop ‘D Loop)
Kerri Chandler- Atmosphere EP (Shelter Records) Jersey stand the fuck up!!!
I could go on for days.. Some real posts w/ deep thoughts coming soon, I promise.
Joi Starr is the lovely vocalist on the Kanye West tours and when we were on tour together it was non stop jokes. She wanted to make these “A-Trak & me” videos of us clowning around, and then she lost the files for the funniest one… until now! Salvation! This was filmed about a year and a half ago. There’s another treat after the jump. Read More
The latest cut to be blessed with the Trackademicks touch is Janelle Monae’s “Many Moons.” You might have heard Ronson, A-Trak and myself bantering over it on East Village Radio this past Friday, and now you can watch the remix video and download the mp3. Ayo technology!
“Looking Thru the B-Sides” follows the adventures of a skater named “Ollie” as he is off on a quest to find his lost skateboard. What starts off as a casual trip to the skate park, turns into a wild trip down the rabbit hole and ends up in a way that Alice In Wonderland could never imagine. Part adventure, part love story, always ready for the unexpected – come along as we go Looking Thru The B-Sides.
Check out Tongy dropping A-Trak and Laidback Luke’s “Shake It Down” on his latest BBC show. Don’t let that “white label” talk fool you though, the single is officially dropping on Fool’s Gold in a few weeks with a particularly crazy remix. Stay tuned…
