We’re proud to release a new grab bag from Crookers today! The “What Up Y’all” EP is out now on Beatport, iTunes, Juno and everywhere else fine digital music is sold (with vinyl on the way). What’s included, you ask? Read More
Whutup blog! Sorry to leave you with nothing 2 step 2 for a minute, you can check the MySpace blog to catch up on all the news. So a year ago, Skinny Friedman of the Philadelphyinz and I started a party called Player’s Club (1st & 3rd Weds at Pianos 158 Ludlow NYC) and tomorrow she turns one year old! Skinny has been slicing the country up in an wrapped Alize tour bus with the homie Izza Kizza as his tour DJ for the past month, but he will be in the building tomorrow for the celebration! The great response to our first PC mix made us want to do another for the anniversary. Check below for the full tracklisting + a surprise.
Slamming, jacking, sweating, pumping, thumping, EXPLODING… yep, must be Crookers.
The Italian DJ/production duo has been synonymous with all manner of intense dancefloor activity over the past few years, crafting absolutely massive (and massively influential) original tracks, along with remixes for some of the biggest names in pop. The Crookers’ version of Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite” snowballed from an underground club must-have to an international smash hit – so we’re obviously, undeniably proud to present this follow-up Fool’s Gold release.
The stacked “What Up Y’all” EP features the first official release of the title track (now properly mixed and mastered, with a shouted hook from Izza Kizza) as well as a hyperactive juke remix of Crookers’ anthem “Knobbers” by DJ Gant-Man, and two incredible takes on the follow-up Cudi collab “Embrace The Martian” courtesy of UK beat maestro Seiji – a crunching, hard-hitting “booty mix” and a squelchy acid version that take the dreamy original to two new heights. Take a listen to the acid mix right now at RCRD LBL.
You can also snag the dub version at Seiji’s blog. Grab these now and brace yourself for whatever the Crooks are cooking up next on their debut LP, coming soon.
I know the logo for this shit is the purple tape, but I haven’t listened to the new Raekwon yet, I hope it’s as good as the internet is telling me. This week there’s tunes from Big Twins f. Prodigy, Gorilla Zoe, Smitty, Izza Kizza, Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj f. Lil Wayne, and Hov (has anybody used “scape-G.O.A.T.” in their Blueprint 3 snarkery yet? Sorry, sorry…) Read More
There were enough clips to go all audio/visual this week. Fuck it!
After the jump watch new joints from Tabi Bonney, Twista, Agent & Raynge feat. Camp Lo and Jet Audio feat. Daytona, as well as reappearances of previous Rappin Ass Thursday-praised songs by Slaughterhouse and Donny Goines feat. Che Grand & Izza Kizza. Read More
Welcome to the inaugural Rappin Ass Thursdays (mega pause!)
I wanted to post up some more music on the blog that wasn’t directly FG related and this seemed like the best way to start. Every Thursday I’m gonna compile my favorite new downloads of the week just in time for you to grab before the weekend. This first one has tracks from GLC & Christian Rich, Wale, Donny Goines f. Che Grand & Izza Kizza, and DJ Soul’s Big L tribute mix. Lesssgoooooooooooo!!! Read More
