Last August, Irish-born, London-based singer and producer Palmistry released wyrdo as his debut Fool’s Gold LP, receiving praise from outlets like Stereogum, DIY Magazine, Dazed, and more. “It’s all terribly lovely and reassuring, and it sounds like nothing else,” said Stereogum’s Tom Breihan. Nearly a year later, Palmistry enlists a robust cast of producers to create a remix EP of some wyrdo’s standout tracks. The first remix and single, “fk a deal (Nikki Nair Remix),” is produced by DJ Mag’s 2022 Breakthrough Producer winner, Nikki Nair, who transforms the track into a bass heavy, breakbeat anthem that is already electrifying crowds. Also on the EP is West Philadelphia producer Matthew Law; Fool’s Gold family High Klassified and Chris Crack; and Palmistry’s close friend, UK-based producer, Kamixlo. From hip-hop to bass, there’s a remix for everyone. Listen now.

This is the stuff DJ dreams are made of. When A-Trak released his 10 Seconds Vol. 1 EP, a project made entirely on the SP1200 drum machine, French legends Alan Braxe and DJ Falcon were immediately drawn to it. Of course those two are no strangers to that sampler. The Daft Punk and Stardust affiliates made many of their early-2000s classics on the SP. Braxe + Falcon were in the middle of releasing their own (fantastic) collaborative project, too. A conversation started, stems were exchanged, and within a few days this incredibly funky remix landed in Trizzy’s inbox. The French Touch is alive and well!
