Check Nacho Lovers in Los Angeles this Friday (alongside our homie Klever!) at Avalon for the latest edition of Control. For a taste of what to expect at the party, peep the selections on the Nacho’s latest Beatport chart, including their excellent remix of Alexander Robotnick’s “Obsession For The Disco Freaks” which you can cop here.
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
This Friday (7.10) at Glasslands in Brooklyn, prepare for one bass-ed out birthday celebration with Kingdom, who turns one year older at his Club Vortex residency with a little help from friends Maluca of Mad Decent and DJs Nguzunguzu and Total Freedom (excellent MySpace name!) of LA’s Wildness party.
The DJs also put together a new mix for the party, featuring a bunch of brand new + unreleased Kingdom tracks. We asked our royal pal if there was a tracklist and he replied “sadly not really. but kinda good too… its in the great tradition of mysterious list-less mixtapes i guess?…in that they sent me the most fragmented tracklist from three different email addresses and half of the info was listed as “?????” they recorded parts live mixing on vinyl, parts on ableton, parts on CDJs, and recorded live sound effects, vocals, and live instruments over the whole thing (which is what they do at their wildness party in L.A. too).” Download it here and check for yourself!
Trizzy’s summer trek picks up again today in Charlotte NC for another Bacardi B-Live bash, with proper 10,000LB Hamburger Tour dates kicking off on the 5th in Tampa.

As mentioned earlier, the A-Trak x Dust La Rock x Kidrobot “Grateful Bear” drops tomorrow at all Kidrobot stores and fine toy retailers around the globe. To celebrate, Trizzy n Duster are giving their NYC pals a chance to pick theirs up early at a signing at the Kidrobot store in NYC tonight from 6-8pm, followed by a free afterparty at Annex with music by Trouble & Bass and new FG fam Kingdom. Ce-le-brate good times, c’moaawnnn!
So you saw the pics from Dust La Rock’s gallery show Best Of The Beast (hailed everywhere from MTV News and the Village Voice to Diddy’s Twitter) and wished you could have been in the building? Or purchase some of those mindbending museum-quality prints for your own wall? We got you!
The entire BOTB collection is now up on the DLR website, where collectors can purchase pieces from this extremely limited run of signed and numbered Giclée prints beautifully printed on archival paper and canvas.
