If you were up on your FG Twitter last night, you would have known to tune into WNYU 89.1 FM to check A-Trak guesting live on DJ Eclipse’s Halftime Show, which was celebrating its 11th Anniversary. Other guests include Primo, Da Beatminerz, and Tony Touch, all dropping that real schittt: crazy rarities, homemade clean radio edits, and (of course) lots of wicky wickies! Stream the archived broadcast here. Also Nick says “Go Bobcats!”
As the March 31st release of A-Trak’s Infinity +1 official mix album looms on the horizon, you can keep up to date at the Infinity +1Tumblr (and accompanying Twitter, natch) where you can find daily goodies and surprises all month leading up to the release. It’s kicking off with this downloadable teaser minimix. So keep checking back for more! Infinity +1 tracklisting and tourdates after the jump. Read More
Remember Trizzy’s Playboy DJ lessons? This is the video of that. In other bunny news, the March issue of the mag (Aubrey O’Day cover, hi Diddy) includes a “Rock The Rabbit” feature, showcasing Playboy-related artwork from various music luminaries including our own esteemed art director Dust La Rock. Now you can really buy it for the articles!
Following up Lifelike and Kavinsky in our continuing series of hard hitting questionnaires with members of the FG extended familia, we bring you a meeting of the minds with supaproducer XXXChange!
You already know dude as one of the architects of Spank Rock and a massively creative and in-demand remixer and producer from everyone from Santogold to the Kills. But do you know his feelings on roast pork? Hit the jump to find all the dirt on kitchen hints, DFA studio internships, P-Thugg keyboard reccomendations, and upcoming projects (which include tracks on the forthcoming Kid Sister LP and Bag Raiders EP). Our man got joints! You can also catch a DJ set from XXXChange at the Guggenheim (!!!) in NYC this Friday, Feb 6th. Read More
As you may have read, A-Trak has a brand new, officially licensed mix CD coming out on April 14th called Infinity +1. (Check the schmoove cover artwork by Dust La Rock. It’s all in the lips.) The mix features everyone from John Dahlbäck to Kid Sister to Gonzalez to NORE, and you can see the full tracklisting after the jump. Trizzy will be touring stateside in support of the disc, and you can check those dates – where else? – after the jump.
Tonight TTC is having a big party in Paris to celebrate their 10th birthday. In honor of this milestone I’ve decided to give away a freebie! This is a song I made with TTC a little over 2 years ago. It was featured on my Dirty South Dance CD. It’s called “Quitte La Piste” which means “get off the dancefloor”… telling lame dudes to vacate so that we can take over, of course.
A-Trak’s remix of Sebastien Tellier’s “Kilometer” (off his appropriately lusty Sexual Sportswear LP) has hit the internets this week, with Busy P calling it the “remix of the year” and Pitchfork giving up some props as well. Cop it on Record Makers when l’official single drops in a few weeks. Meanwhile, give it a listen on our Fairtilizer player. Violins!
A random sidebar to our office Obamawatchin today: Twitter updates from all the folks in DC for the inauguration led us from @WaleDC‘s tweets to @solangeknowles to the Solange OkayPlayer blog, where she listed A-Trak’s “Say Whoa” in her Fave Songs of 08. Thanks!
