Read about (aboot?) JOTS in F2, the new online-only publication from the team behind The FADER. Sez them: “In 2008, each issue of F2 will focus on how a different classic genre is being reexamined and reinterpreted. The first issue tackles the New Disco and includes two photo essays on Melbourne dance music (featuring Midnight Juggernauts, Miami Horror and cover stars Cut Copy), as well as profiles of Sally Shapiro, Jokers of the Scene, Boys Noize and more.” Download it here.
Check out our dudes LA Riots remixing Weezer’s “Automatic” in this trailer for the latest edition of the Grand Turismo video game. (Fun =W= fact: it’s Pat singing on the track, not Rivers! Take a guess which FG founder owns the first two Special Goodness LPs…)

The Fool’s Gold posse flew to Miami last Wednesday for some festivities of the Winter Music variety. When we arrived in fabulous South Beach we were famished so we linked up with our buddies Boys Noize, Steve Aoki, MSTRKRFT and LA Riots who were all about to grab dinner. What we didn’t know was that the MSTR boys had made reservations at the fanciest, strangest, most blog-worthy restaurant in the 305. From the outside this place Prime 112 looked more like a club than anything else. When our turn finally came we realized that from the inside it was actually closer to a hotel in the sense that every party got their own private room with not only a dining table but a TV, a couch, a bed, a bathroom… They served plates that were big enough to be shared by 5-7 people. We ordered the mother of all surf & turfs. The lobster was 4.5 pounds. My girlfriend’s dog is about that size. Read More

I’ve now been working with Jay-Z on his live show for 5 days. If you read my last post, I said they were asking me to recommend a DJ. I didn’t want to write that they had already picked Neil Armstrong as the DJ because I wasn’t sure if he had announced it yet. So I kept it vague. Now everybody’s asking me to recommend this guy or that guy. They have a DJ! I didn’t end up recommending anyone, I just came in and gave my input on the music. Read More

OK so the 2 sentences in the title aren’t exactly related but they’re both pretty exciting. I haven’t talked much about this record thus far and the powers that be are saying you’ll have to wait a few more weeks to find out exactly what it is. But I can say this: I finished an A-Trak record, it’s longer than an album but it’s not an album… although it is all original production. I can also say I’ve been working on it for weeks and weeks and I can finally breathe! Until my phone rings. Read More
