“Kid Sister is wrapping up a new EP and her second album – they’re both coming out crazy, and while she’s feeling the vibe, she wanted to jump on some fun stuff like we did for the Kiss Kiss Kiss mixtape. I love DJ Nehpets’ juke remix of Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation” and knew she would sound crazy on it. But I had no idea she would freak it like THIS!?!? A sweaty summer jam for Chi-town and beyond.”
If you haven’t noticed already, Treasure Fingers’ podcast series is off to a great start, with new broadcasts from his studio dropping every week, mixing new tunes with casual interview bits from fellow Brooklyn music makers like Codes and Free Magic. The latest episode ups the banter ante considerably: Nick Catchdubs drops by to play some disco raps, then stays to chat with Treasure Fingers about everything from new DJ tips to Australian fashion and hyphy samples.
