Mere days before they debut a brand-new Duck Sauce stage show at Coachella (complete with 20 foot inflatable duck!) A-Trak and Armand Van Helden have unleashed a full album stream of their magnum opus Quack, out 4/15. The twelve track LP is an instant dance classic and cut-and-paste milestone, mashing one of a kind pop smashes like “Barbra Streisand” with anthemic club collages and genuinely hysterical skits worthy of the Jerky Boys. QUACK IS BACK! Listen to the whole album now courtesy The Fader, and peep a brand new “Egg” teaser featuring new Quack single “NRG” (which happens to be out now with remixes from Skrillex x Kill The Noise x Milo & Otis and Hudson Mohawke!)
As promised, here’s the MTV premier of Danny Brown’s new video for “25 Bucks” featuring Purity Ring. Director Norton put together a moody, surreal clip that provides a perfect backdrop for Danny’s heart-rending rhymes and Megan James’ ghostly chorus vocals. Get it on Danny’s Old LP, out now on vinyl, iTunes and everywhere else fine music is sold, and check Danny live with the Bruiser Brigade on his Old Danny Brown Tour when it hits a town near you. (There’s also a “25 Bucks” single with instrumental and two bonus remixes of Old banger “Dip” by Preditah and Noah D.) After the jump, watch a behind-the-scenes interview with Norton about the making of the video. Read More
Longtime label homie Willy Joy makes his official Fool’s Gold debut with the euphoric Clubhouse banger “Geeks.” Mixing kandi-coated bass drops with a gleefully goofy melody that recalls classic ’80s movie themes (Fletch gone festival trap?) “Geeks” is another one-of-a-kind jam we’re proud to include in the Clubhouse canon. Get it now from foolsgoldrecs.com/clubhouse and stay tuned for more…
Ghetto Cuisine is a potent strain of hybrid California bass from DaVinci and Sweet Valley (aka Joel and Nathan Williams). Fans of both artists’ past work might find the pairing unlikely at first, but these low end theorists are true kindred spirits. On Ghetto Cuisine, the SV bros take their melted-Nintendo-cartridge aesthetic in awesomely dark new directions, setting a black-lit stage for DaVinci’s sharpest street narratives yet, and the end result is twelve THC-fueled trunk rattlers featuring guest appearances from 100s and Main Attrakionz. Pitchfork just spilled the beans on the project and debuted a stream of new track “Got That Line.” The whole tape drops tomorrow at foolsgoldrecs.com/ghettocuisine, grab a fork and get busy.
Throw your hands in the air and jump around to “NRG,” the latest banger to hatch from the Duck Sauce studio speakers. As if the original wasn’t fun enough on its own, this delirious disco house hit comes backed by cranked up remixes courtesy dance music superteam Skrillex, Kill The Noise and Milo & Otis, as well as bass master Hudson Mohawke. Get ‘em now on iTunes!
Fans have been salivating for Savage Skulls’ alpine megajam “Dachstein” ever since heavy hitters like A-Trak and Tiesto started dropping it in their festival sets. Mashing a feel good oompahh melody into an enormous kick drum drop, “Dachstein” is perhaps the heaviest and happiest DJ weapon you’ll hear all year. The hills are alive! Get it now on iTunes, Beatport, and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
Danny Brown kicked off his Old Danny Brown Tour this past week with a string of sold out shows, so it’s only right that MTV gets in on the action by kicking their Artist To Watch campaign into high gear for the Bruiser! Watch this interview vid and live performance from Austin, and stay tuned for MTV’s world premier of the “25 Bucks” video featuring Purity Ring later this week. (And for even more DB, grab Old on vinyl now in 2xLP and deluxe 4xLP box set versions!)
