FCZ x PT’s single (named after the raucous Sing Sing party they created in Seattle) reinvents the party record for the skinny jeans/big sneaker generation with a collection of gloriously stoopid Jock Jam riffs, gigantic drum fills, and looped-up chants, all with DJ-friendly extended intros and accapella outros for mixing. Sammy’s EP is the follow-up to last year’s High Top Fades, upping the ante conceptually (every track is a cleverly reworked tribute to a different 90s female r&b anthem, hence the Braids & Fades title) while showing off Sammy’s rapid growth as a producer. His sound is more funky than fidget, ditching trendy production tricks to craft a genuinely refreshing take on club music that’s pure pop satisfaction! Turntable Lab has you covered:

LA Riots’ latest remix (for Crystal Castles’ “Crimewave”) finally, but rather than tossing the internets a mere mp3 leak, they decided to go for the gusto and drop this full DJ mix containing 11 of their biggest remixes to date (including their take on Kid Sister’s “Control” and their recent N.A.S.A. flip).

It’s the type of thing that you tell yourself would never happen to you or someone you know. Especially when you’re on the plane literally every other day. You know that plane crashes happen but apparently you’re more likely to get killed by a shark than to be in a plane crash. So you just go about your life and get on those flights. You also go about your sometimes stressful life and forget how fortunate you are to do what you love for a living, and to do it in good health. Read More
As you eagerly count down the minutes in your cubicle (or kick back stealing wireless in your shared bohemian “artist” dwelling) waiting for the weekend to begin so you can go all Loverboy on its ass, we figured the least we could do is type up a handy guide to all the Fool’s Gold-related events popping off around the globe over the next few days, so you know exactly where to go and what to do.
