They also put together this “By The Numbers” feature, analyzing XXX in proper infographic form, peep it below. Read More

New Sammy Bananas Remixes

Posted on Aug 17th, 2011

Listen to two new, very different jams from the Sammy lab: first up is a sax-gone-wild mix for Lars Moston’s “Too Much Party Time” on Malente’s No Brainer label. Next is a darkly poppy take on Blind Benny’s “Bad Dreams.” Sam-step? Check em both out – and while you’re at it, look out for Sammy on the Chromeo “When The Night Falls” tour, and get ready for Fifteenth (his collaboration with Mike B) dropping on Fool’s Gold soon.

Food Gold: Watermelon Two Ways

Posted on Aug 16th, 2011

This week we are going to hit you with two classic, refreshing watermelon dishes. One is a soup and the other is a salad but if you were to add some lovely grilled shrimp to either, they could easily work as entrees. As summer winds down, I recommend you get these two in before it’s braising season come Fall. Let’s get it! Read More

Party Supplies "Firecrackers" Mixtape

Posted on Aug 11th, 2011

As you may have read, Party Supplies is one of the newest additions to the FG fam, a production wizard who’s made the leap from knocking out beats to composing full-on anthems on his MPC. He just got back to Brooklyn after several weeks of California sunshine recording his debut Fool’s Gold LP, and is dropping the Firecrackers mixtape, a collection of PS remixes to close out your summer with a bang.

Like a breakbeat Coachella or alternate-universe Grammys, Party Supplies has stitched together an ecstatic collection of cut-and-paste pop, perfect for rooftops, drop-tops and earbuds alike. Arcade Fire and Edward Sharpe? Yeezy and the Weeknd? A Bob Dylan cover to close it all out?!? There’s no question that Party Supplies is on his own shit, a one-man-band to watch…

Download Firecrackers here, and check Party Supplies alongside Danny Brown, Action Bronson and more in Brooklyn on August 20th for Combat Jack and Dallas Penn’s annual BYOBBBQ. Read More
