Jokers Of The Scene head back overseas next week to kick off their “No Gods, No Tour Managers” trek. The duo will traverse the old continent for a month, armed with only the best in dancefloor decapitators and mind expanders – including tons of new JOTS originals (which you’ll be hearing on FG very soon) and forthcoming remixes for the likes of Chromeo and Salem. Diversity!
While we’re on the topic of switching things up, the latest remix from Booth + Chameleonic’s beat lab is not a clubber at all, but a slow-rolling slice of Madchester-dipped psychedelia. JOTS’ “Treehouse Dub” of their old Ottawa neighbors The Acorn’s wonderfully named “Bobcat Goldwraith” is out this week as part of a new remix LP , but you can soak up all it’s washed out, 101 BPM glory right now thanks to our friends at RCRD LBL.
To rave things right back up, grab JOTS’ “Revolting Joks,” out now on iTunes, Beatport, and vinyl.
Kingdom’s monthly Club Infinity bash with Dre Skull and pals is back this Saturday (Sep. 18th) at Santos Party Haus, featuring guest sets from Dubbel Dutch and Dipset’s MPC monster araabMUZIK. Not to be missed, but in case you need further convincing (shame on you!) Kingdom has dropped some mp3 treats as a taste of what the evening has in store.
Our girls The Suzan are headed back to Japan and won’t return until it gets closer to the release of Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat on October 26th. However, you have one last chance to check them live this Saturday (9/11) at Rock Shop in Park Slope, Brooklyn, playing alongside Robbers On High Street and more. Go go go!
Download Greenmoney’s new mix for WeAreBlahBlahBlah, featuring previews of their latest remixes and new tunes, along with other brukked up treats. You can also check them in Brixton once again for the latest edition of Download This, going down tonight (9/10) at Plan B. Flyer after the jump! Read More
Catchy goes intercontinental this week for shows in Hong Kong, Singapore, Bali, Seoul, Busan and Beijing (the last show is a blowout for the Intel/Vice Creators Project, which you may remember from their FG feature earlier this summer). As a parting gift, he left us this new mix Round’n Round’n Round’n Round’n Round’n, which you can download from SoundCloud. Tracklist after the jump.
Putting a giant exclamation point on another summer of smash singles and packed-out parties across the country, Fool’s Gold – the trendsetting indie label founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs – is throwing a free DAY OFF party on Labor Day. It’s going down from 2-8pm in NYC at City Winery Backyard (155 Varick St, backyard entrance on Spring between Hudson & Varick) and the all-ages event will feature guest raps from Yelawolf, Pill and Donnis, DJ sets from The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak & Dave1), Just Blaze, Craze, Klever, Kill The Noise and Nick Catchdubs, and a live performance by The Suzan. It’s truly a family affair, with their friends from Scion, The Fader, LTD+, Slow Roast, Jelly and more on board to make it a can’t-miss party! Read More
No column today, but to make up for it we’re droppin beats once again at Beauty Bar in Chicago! Come on and get down with Nick Catchdubs! Chi-town RAT residents Flosstradamus will be traveling, but local beatmeisters Capcom and Hiroki will be on the set to help hold it down.
