Check out this mighty morphin clip for the Bag Raiders’ Australian indie club staple “Fun Punch.” The original will be out on a Fool’s Gold EP very soon, backed by exclusive remixes from XXXChange and Jokers Of The Scene and some other goodies we’re not going to let out of the bag (wocka wocka wocka) just yet. Stay tuned! Meanwhile grab the BR’s remix of Kid Sister’s “Pro Nails” right here on our RCRD LBL page.
DC’s Wale and FG’s Nick Catchdubs just dropped The Mixtape About Nothing today, and you can download it for free (part 1 and part 2) or get a physical copy bundled with a limited-edition 10.Deep “Serenity Now” shirt. Don’t take the Seinfeld theme too literally though, it’s definitely Wale’s De La Soul Is Dead moment: “If you love substance, you love Wale/ But most niggas love nothing, so I made this tape.”
This week Kid Sister is in NYC to finish up her album, check out the Sex And The Citypremiere, and – most importantly – perform at Hot 97′s Summer Jam this Sunday (6/1) at Giants Stadium.
