Your eyes don’t deceive you – yes, that is the furry creature Dust La Rock dreamed up for various A-Trak projects made real. Or as real as an 8 inch plastic toy can be! Kidrobot will be releasing this limited edition (only 500 pieces made for the world!) “Grateful Bear” figure – complete with gold-plated necklace, leather cuff, cotton sweatband, snow-capped igloo, fitted baseball hat and wayfarers – on July 2nd at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers. As a bonus, A-Trak and Dust will be signing the figure a day earlier at the Kidrobot store in NYC.

Extra! Extra! This summer I’m taking a horse and carriage across this fine continent and will circumnavigate it with the help of Rye Rye and Treasure Fingers in an operation that I call the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour. There are also some festivals and Bacardi B-Live dates mixed into the timeline so with all that combined I very well might be hitting YOUR town! Expect the unexpected, this will not be like your average club gig. Check the dates after the jump. Read More
Amazingly, the best thing on Pitchfork’s front page today isn’t the Cam’ron review blurb that declares Crime Pays as having a “lonely, defensive Kirk Van Houten vibe” (?!?) but this fairly extensive A-Trak edition of their “Guest List” feature, which you can read here. Check Trizzy talking about Proust, Mythbusters, weird Bill Wyman records and of course DUCK SAUCE.
Following right on the heels of Infinity +1 is A-Trak’s new Fabric Live mix, which came out in Europe a minute ago but hits stores in the land of the free today. So go pick it up! Happy Cinco De Maino!
