Tomorrow night (10/17) check FG’s own Nick Catchdubs, Slow Roast commando Codes, and our extended fam JWLS, Mr MFN Exquire, Jim-E Stack, Baauer, Kilo Kish and Samo Sound Boy at the AM Only CMJ Showcase at Drom on Avenue A in NYC. It’s a big one!
Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth has been setting the internets on fire like none other with his unique, emo take on trunk rattling beats. He’s a been a favorite of FG for a minute (we just enlisted him to remix Bruiser Brigade!) so we’re proud to present this mix of some of his biggest bootlegs, where he reworks rap favorites from Top 40 mainstays and underground kingz alike, turning them into woozy digital bangers in his signature, lushly chopped-up style.
Subscribe to the Foolcast via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader at the main Foolcast page, where you can also download the mix directly (right click and save-as). And if you prefer these remixes as individual mp3s, snag em here.
Ryan will be dropping a DJ set at the Fool’s Gold Five Year Anniversary Party this Saturday at Music Hall Of Williamsburg. It’s free all night, come thru at 9pm and check the man in action alongside Ghostface Killah, A-Trak, Flosstradamus and more. Read More
