The K.L.A.M. guys just sent over a new treat for us to share with you in the form of “138 Shakedown,” their cheeky cut-up of A-Trak and Laidback Luke’s FG jam “Shake It Down” and DJ Zinc’s hype anthem “138 Trek.” Boom goes the dynamite! Download it here.
For more K.L.A.M. goodies, be sure to grab their Fool’s Gold single “Funky 4,” featuring two new originals and remixes of the title track from Hot City and the Martin Brothers that have quickly become DJ favorites. It’s available now on Beatport, iTunes and all other digital retailers.

“If your name’s not down, you’re not coming in!”
With that simple, sampled phrase, London duo Kicks Like A Mule captured nightclub life perfectly on their ’92 rave hit “The Bouncer.” Their party anthem doubled as a mission statement for an irreverent attitude and anything-goes production aesthetic that carried them through other seminal early productions (Awesome 3’s “Don’t Go,” London Posse “Pass The Rizla”), fueled two decades of behind-the-scenes handiwork in some of the UK’s most important musical movements, and informs recent production work for maverick artists from Gil Scott-Heron to Wiley.
Following a series of triumphant festival gigs and recent remixes for the likes of Major Lazer, MIA, The Prodigy and Kid Sister, K.L.A.M. comes screaming back with a new original release on Fool’s Gold, the dancefloor flash grenade “Funky 4.” The tune is a cheeky nod to the group’s breakbeat past, but its frantic snare rolls and staccato bass thumps are undeniably right on time. Smash remixes by dirty house titans The Martin Brothers and two-stepping upstart Hot City round out the release, while dark and dubby b-side “South London A1 Sound” offers another look at where K.L.A.M. are headed today.
Grab it now exclusively on Beatport, and get your name down early! There’s also a “Funky 4” chart of recent favorites from the gents to keep you moving.
