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!

(And for even more DB, grab Old on vinyl now in 2xLP and deluxe 4xLP box set versions!)
