It’s that time of year again… the mtvU Woodie Awards are back, and Fool’s Gold is representing with Danny Brown up for Best Video (“Grown Up”) and A-Trak nominated for TWO “Tag Team” Woodies, for his Dillon Francis collab “Money Makin” as well as “Warrior” with Mark Foster and Kimbra (no stranger to awards herself, we see those Grammys…) GET TO VOTING!
BK club master Codes has a new release out today on Slow Roast, a high powered, genuinely diverse dancestravaganza called The Get Down. Get it now on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold!
The title track’s big room laser disco madness manages to fit perfectly next to the hip-hop flavored electro of “Let Me Break It” and the trapped out bass-n-breaks of “All The Game.” Throw in collaborations with Smog Records champ Flinch (the supremely ravey “Come Down”) and BK bombshell Carrie Wilds (on the smoothed out closer “Temptation”) and you have one of the most exciting releases of the new year. And if that’s not enough, Codes dropped yet another freebie to get you in the mood, with the extra amped-up “In Your Brain.” Grab it!
