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!
DJ Benzi and Plain Pat collected a litany of new and old Kanye West remixes for their Sky High mixtape, which is finally out in official form (“This new version is not like the crappy webrip that was floating around, and is properly mixed and mastered” says Benzi). The KW reworkers include a who’s who of FG fam and friends, like A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs, Eli Escobar, Kid Cudi, Stretch Armstrong and many more talented folks. Download it free right here.
This past Friday we had our 2nd annual Fool’s Gold holiday jam. Even with a NYC blizzard in full effect all day, the true believers came out to party with the FG fam and our special guests DJ Premier and Cipha Sounds. Kid Sister and Trackademicks cut it up on the dancefloor, Daniel LA Riots and Linus JOTS were spotted with Pepsi-n-Hennessy coctails in hand, Primo dropped “Hold It Now Hit It,” and a festive time was had by all. (Dust swears he saw Macaulay Culkin in the mix but I don’t believe him he needs more people).
