“I’ll House You” is a brand-new Kid Sister track, recorded specially for Reebok’s Classic Remix project. The sneaker giant commissioned re-interpretations of beloved throwback tunes by current artists, and Kid Sis’ personal contribution is a take on the seminal Jungle Brothers / Todd Terry hip-house track “I’ll House You.” Fellow FG fam Treasure Fingers provides the beat (his ATL strip club roots are showing!) and the whole thing enjoyably connects the dots between two generations of uptempo club rap. Stream it here and get download codes at your neighborhood Foot Locker.

For an upcoming Reebok x Foot Locker campaign, Kid Sister re-interpreted the Jungle Brothers (and Todd Terry!) classic “I’ll House You,” with none other than Treasure Fingers on the beat. Their new version will be dropping very soon, meanwhile here’s a little promo vid about the Reebok campaign – Kidz In The Hall kicked it off a month or so ago, and B.O.B. is up next.

Recappery from our label showcase and the rest of WMC weekend coming soon!
Meanwhile check some of Bronques’ pics from the Bacardi B Live show with A-Trak, Chromeo, and Kid Sister, as well as Stones Throw’s pics from their Hella International party where the Brothers Macklovitch DJed (and Cosmo Baker met Cozmo D from Newcleus, Gaslamp Killer dropped dubstep heaters, Pase Rock styled on em, Dances With White Girls fell asleep, Catchdini proclaimed “Clipse album cuts will be to the next five years of Stones Throw WMCs what Ghostface album cuts were to the last five” and numerous other hijinks…)

The Fool’s Gold After Dark showcase in Austin last week was insane in every possible way, from the turnout (line down the block and around the corner all night!) to the tunes, as the whole roster dropped stellar sets packed with new joints and dence detonators. Even when the sound unceremoniously got cut during Mehdi’s set due to arcane Austin liquor laws, he still managed to smash it! Kid Cudi came through and surprised us with a quick set, fans and well-wishers included everyone from Clinton Sparks and Steve “Buddy” Aoki to MCs like Curren$y, Mistah FAB and Izza Kizza, and an amazing time was had by all.
Thanks to everyone at Scion, Palm Door/Beauty Bar and Red Stripe for lending a hand, and thanks to all the shutterbugs who put their pics on Flickr to make this wrapup possible, Catch lost his camera while crowdsurfing shirtless later in the week (smoove….) but the FG Flip cam made it back alive with video.

Along with our own Saturday night megashowcase at White Room, the members of the Fool’s Gold family will be performing at a litany of other events throughout WMC this weekend, everything from afternoon pool parties to all-rap throwdowns to Fergie’s birthday (seriously, JOTS are gonna take lady lumps to the rave cave). Check the full listing after the jump.

As Kid Sis puts the finishing touches on her looooooong awaited LP, we went ahead and dropped this treat especially for all the record spinners out there who were her earliest supporters – an official single for album cut “Get Fresh” exclusively on vinyl and Beatport, where you can buy it today! It comes complete with brand new remixes from homies Zombie Nation (who’s “Lower State Of Consciousness” as ZZT provided sample fodder for the original) and Alex Gopher. To whet your appetite, here’s the Gopher mix courtesy of our friends at RCRD LBL.
Annie Mac and Andy George have already been rinsing the new mixes on BBC, and they’re sure to light up DJ sets all throughout Winter Music Conference and SXSW – where you can conveniently catch Kid Sister performing live every night of the fest, including the late night Fool’s Gold After Dark spectacular on 3/19. Check the info on her MySpace.

Many props to our boys in Simian Mobile Disco for this enjoyable new video, courtesy of Kate Moross and Bok Bok. Opposite props for making us worry lots about the eye doctor.
Grab the SMD remix of Kid Sister’s “Pro Nails” (secret heatrock!) on vinyl now at Turntable Lab. That track and the rest of the Kid Sister remix 12″ will be available digitally for the first time at Beatport on 3/3 – along with some new KS jams! – so stay tuned for more info.
