For the latest edition of our Foolcast mix series, we’re proud to present the debut of Missile Command, a new DJ team comprised of Neptunes / N*E*R*D mastermind Chad Hugo and longtime DMV partyrocker Hip Hop Dan.
The dynamic duo just got home from soundtracking a weekend of afterparties at Coachella and hopped right back into the booth to put together this Foolcast for us, falling somewhere between a traditional DJ mix – new favorites, remixes, left-field bangers – and a studio broadcast sneak peek. Check the tracklist after the jump, featuring tons of exclusives from the likes of No Planes In Space (another Chad collab, this time with Paul Banks of Interpol), Lupe Fiasco and more.
This Friday (4/22) the Natural History Museum’s long-running One Step Beyond party series will feature a Chromeo DJ set and a live performance by Telephoned. Reunited and it feels so good!
Tickets are already sold out, but Telephoned are giving away guestlist slots on their Twitter. The generosity continues, as Sammy and Maggie also gifted the internets with a f-a-b-o-l-o-u-s new “cover up” that you can grab here.
Get “melodicho” on this dreamy, house-y new mix from Sammy Bananas. It’s his contribution to the Pomp&Clout mix series, and you can download it here.
For more P&C x FG mixery, peep Nick Catchdubs’ edition. And for more Sammy B, check out his FG solo single “Move Your Body,” still rocking discerning dancefloors everywhere in original as well as Cassian and Toy Selectah-remixed flavors. It’s out now on Beatport, iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
Party people attending A-Trak and friends’ upcoming MAGIC 8-BALL TOUR (get your tickets now!) will have a chance to snag a limited-edition Scion A/V 7″ single featuring “Ray Ban Vision” backed by a brand new remix from Luckybeard, aka Phra of Crookers. It’s a jammer! Grab the mp3 now at Pitchfork.
For more Luckybeard goodness, check his great mix from last year. And be sure to pick up the new EP from Dr Gonzo, Phra and Bot’s collab with Savage Skulls (and more buddies). You’ll be hearing that one all summer…
The latest batch of chonkyfire to emerge from Donnis’ rap lab is Southern Lights, a new mixtape put together by our own Nick Catchdubs.
Southern Lights features 13 new tracks (and his star turn on the “Ray Ban Vision” remix, of course) showcasing the many moods of Donnis: the playa, the party man, the country rap storyteller, and – as always – the ever-hungry MC, with some guest support from Young Dro, Gorilla Zoe, XV and even Dungeon Family poet laureate Big Rube (!!!)
