Check out 1O.a.k., Trackademicks and Tap.10 at Farenheit Ultra Lounge in San Jose tonight – it’s 1O.a.k.’s debut solo show (although you’ve seen him rocking on the mic – and on the lived drum pads! – with Trackademicks before) and the whole Honor Roll crew is sure to kill it.

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.
Jokers Of The Scene recently whipped up one ‘evy, ‘evy remix for Flosstradamus’ “Big Bills,” taking Caroline Polachek’s moody, Nico-esque vocals to their logical extreme by turning the whole track into a dark and thumping Berlin basement jam. Download JOTS’ “After 4AM Rework” for free (along with the original track and additional remixes from Blaqstarr and Floss themselves) at the “Big Bills” Green Label Sound page.
This Friday on The FADER’s “The Let Out” on East Village Radio, they had ATLien and Killer Mike associate Pill by to kick some rhymes, and whaddayaknow, one of the tracks he goes over just happens to be Trackademicks’ “Topsidin” instrumental from the “Enjoy What You Do / Topsidin” single (available here and everywhere else digital music is sold, vinyl on its way!) Sure, it’s a “freestyle” in the most literal sense, but as always it’s cool to hear other rappers on our stuff.
Elsewhere on the internet airwaves, you can listen to this extensive Trackademicks interview with Streets Is Talking Radio right here. “In the words of Mac Mall, this interview is full of ‘Nathan But Game,'” says Track. Grab it!
If you were up on your FG Twitter last night, you would have known to tune into WNYU 89.1 FM to check A-Trak guesting live on DJ Eclipse’s Halftime Show, which was celebrating its 11th Anniversary.

Stream the archived broadcast here. Also Nick says “Go Bobcats!”
The latest edition of NYC party photog Nicky Digtital’s “Pre Party Jamz” mix series comes courtesy of our own Sammy Bananas, who drops everything from dancehall Tracy Chapman covers to Aeroplane’s remix of Friendly Fires “Paris” to motherfucking BILLY OCEAN so safe to say it is packed with jams, pre-party or otherwise.
