Young Money’s hit “Every Girl” is inescapable on the radio in NYC (and most likely where you live too) this summer, and while we more than agree with the moral of the song, hearing Wayne and Drake every ten minutes gets to be a little much – enough is enough! Fortunately DJ Gant-Man saves the day with a clever remix that keeps the tune fresh and jukin. Enjoy!

Check Gant out if you’re in Chicago tonight or Paris this Friday (and be sure to wish him a happy birthday!) and cop his Fool’s Gold single “Juke Dat Girl” on iTunes or Beatport.

Click here to listen to the latest Ministry of Sound radio show from UK production duo Greenmoney (Alex from Bugz In The Attic and big homie Leo from YoYo), featuring all sorts of UK funky house goodies and original productions, including Greenmoney’s remix of DJ Gant-Man’s upcoming Fool’s Gold single “Juke Dat Girl.”
This particular episode also features a guest set from another one of our favorites, Seiji, who rocks FG exclusives of his own with two mixes of Crookers and Kid Cudi’s “Embrace The Martian,” both of which will drop on our Crookers EP out later this spring. Safe!

The latest edition of the We Make It Good mix series (what up Pretty Titty!) comes courtesy of none other than Crookers, who turn in a blend of Italian jams both old (vintage 45s and tambourine tracks) and new (their own shit) along with bangers from the usual suspects (Rusko, Mujava, Oizo) so basically what we’re saying is you should go check it out here.
There’s a ton of big things coming up this year for the duo, including remixes for megapopstars, sure-to-be-triumphant Coachella and Sonar gigs, and…A FOOL’S GOLD SINGLE! The forthcoming Crooks release will feature a finished version of new track “What Up Y’all” (the leaked demo is already a hit, word to Hype Machine) as well as exclusive remixes of their fan favorites “Knobbers” and “Embrace The Martian” by DJ Gant-Man and Seiji of Bugz In The Attic fame. It’s sounding great so far, and we’re excited to drop it on you fine people next month. Stay tuned!

We threw our 2nd annual CMJ showcase (and one-year anniversary party!) this past Thursday at Webster Hall in NYC. There was much cake, revelry and tunes from the crew, here’s the photo galleries and related linkery:
– Driven By Boredom photos (whole show / Kid Sis / Voice selects)
– Last Night’s Party photos
– Behind-the-scenes glamour shots (and Q&As) from Metromix
– Prefix Mag photos (more on Flickr)
– End-of-night foolishness captured by Nicky Digital
– NY Times story on CMJ merch w/ Kid Sis tee
My personal highlights include Nacho Lovers playing Circle Children’s “Zulu” while giving Armand a pound, Gant-Man’s epic hypeman skills keeping up with Kid Sister’s set, Dave1’s extra dapper suit, and of course being able to rock with practically the whole FG fam (Nachos, JOTS and Trackademicks stuck around all CMJ weekend so we’ve been handling photo shoots and meetings alongside late night ridiculousness and more food than I’ve ever eaten in my life. Call me Nick Fatdubs). Special shout-out to Scion for sponsoring the show and to Kenny and the whole Webster Hall team for making sure our champagne glasses were filled up.

While Kid Sister was away at the BET Awards (pics on her MySpace) and performing at Glastonbury, we figured it was time to drop this vinyl-only remix EP, featuring brand new versions of “Control” by JFK of MSTRKRFT and our own LA Riots, as well as “Pro Nails” mixes by SMD (aka Simian Mobile Disco) and DJ Gant-Man. You can purchase it at Turntable Lab and fine vinyl emporiums worldwide. But that wasn’t enough! We didn’t want to leave our record player-less friends high and dry, so we decided to give away promo mp3s on our RCRD LBL page, starting with JFK’s “Control.” Grab it here and stay tuned for more!
