Smalltown DJs and Lisa Lobsinger’s jam “See Thru” is the Clubhouse cut so nice we had to drop it twice! This time Neighbour goes in for a humid, ’80s inspired synth treatment while The Slow Waves take the song into hypnotic half-time rock territory. Combined with the genre-less original and still-smoking remixes from Thugli and Astronomar & Wuki, this expanded “See Thru” re-release makes for one of Summer’s truly must-have EPs.

Smalltown DJs understand the physics of party music better than almost anyone on the planet. (What else would you expect from two selectors who actually built their own nightclub?) Their energetic, inventive sets have taken the duo around the globe, and their original productions are spun by the likes of A-Trak, Diplo, Annie Mac and more. Yet even veterans are able to surprise, and Smalltown’s latest, “See Thru,” is a true revelation of a tune. Grab it now from foolsgoldrecs.com/clubhouse!
This hybrid jam, built around the soulful vocals of Lisa Lobsinger (Broken Social Scene), manages to feel equally at home slamming a club’s main floor or anchoring an after party playlist. Is it nu-disco? Moombahton? EDM indie rock? (And where do the bugged out remixes from Thugli and Astronomar & Wuki fit?) All we know is that you won’t hear songs like these anywhere else, making them perfect additions to the Fool’s Gold Clubhouse.

Just because we’re celebrating our 2nd birthday at CMJ in NYC this week doesn’t mean the rest of the globe has to feel left out! Namely Calgary, where the Giant 45 crew will be presenting the last public exhibition of Dust La Rock’s Best Of The Beast art show (all prints, no canvas).
It kicks off with an opening at the store on Wednesday, followed by a party at Hi-Fi Club on Thursday featuring our homies Smalltown DJs and Wax Romeo – it’s the ten year anniversary of their Hai Karate night (which has hosted many a FG artist through the years) so it’s sure to be a blow out! Stay tuned for more DLR art news very soon…
