Right as the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour was kicking off this weekend, we found out that Rye Rye had to drop off the trek. But hip-hop don’t stop, so we are psyched to announce the addition of Theophilus London to A-Trak’s state-to-state calvacade of goodtimes (Treasure Fingers is still holding it down, along with all other previously announced special guests). If you’re not familiar with Theo’s particular brand of mic science, check this Fader profile, download his debut mixtape, and give a listen to his latest jam, a remix of The Very Best’s “Warm Heart Of Africa” featuring our boy Ezra Koenig.
Theo hops on the tour 7/11 in Houston – full lineup and ticket info after the jump! Also be sure to follow A-Trak, Treasure Fingers and Mr London on Twitter for the latest and greatest in room service mayhem AS IT HAPPENS. Read More

Extra! Extra! This summer I’m taking a horse and carriage across this fine continent and will circumnavigate it with the help of Rye Rye and Treasure Fingers in an operation that I call the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour. There are also some festivals and Bacardi B-Live dates mixed into the timeline so with all that combined I very well might be hitting YOUR town! Expect the unexpected, this will not be like your average club gig. Check the dates after the jump. Read More
Only a few nightspots in the world truly qualify as “superclubs,” and in that subcategory fewer still match up to Pacha. They have the awards to prove it! Real ones they give out in Eebeetha! Basically what we’re saying is that if you’re down for an extra-big night of oontz oontz oontz, they got you – which is why it’s so cool that our dude Treasure Fingers is infiltrating Pacha NYC this Friday (playing alongside Benny Benassi, obviously no stranger to that world…) and entry is free before midnight if you RSVP. Treasure Fingers will be on the decks from 11pm-1am, we’ll catch you there.
“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.
