If you’re a fan of good taste – and lets face it, you are reading this here blog – head over to Beatport and check the latest DJ charts from Nacho Lovers, Greenmoney and Malente for their current personal favorites and recommended jams. More charts from the FG fam coming soon…
Just check the playlists of folks like Fake Blood, Crookers, Steve Aoki, and Tiga. Or the remix discographies of Armand Van Helden, Bob Sinclair, Dada Life and more. Why not peep the Beatport, Juno and German club charts, where his original singles like “Music Forever” and “Lions / Gypsy Kings” (with production partner Dex) have been posted up top throughout the Summer? Shit, just give a listen to the ecstatic crowd shrieks for his sets at Shambhala and packed festivals around the globe.
Point is, if there’s a dancefloor fire getting started somewhere – anywhere! – a Malente tune has probably had something to do with it. Which is why we’re excited to present the latest chapter in his blown speaker saga, “I Like It,” a club anthem that captures all the raved-out energy of Malente’s previous work and adds a cheeky disco twist that’s right on time.
Buy the new single on Beatport, iTunes, Juno and everywhere else fine digital music is sold. Vinyl on the way! Update: vinyl is here!
Remixes come courtesy of Trouble & Bass youngster Mikix The Cat and rising mixmaster Riva Starr, who’s housey, Roule-inspired flip has already become a live staple of A-Trak (who features it on his Duck Sauce Mixmag covermount CD this fall) and other big dog deejays. These three versions of “I Like It” make for an instantly playable, party starting package that you need in your life THIS INSTANT.
As you may have peeped on the internets, Malente has a new summer mix out for Palms Out Sounds, featuring everything from Black Ghosts to Ween to EMF album cuts. Download it here, and if that’s not enough, grab his latest remix, a poppin little number for Miyagi.
We’ll be dropping Malente’s disco ripper “I Like It” single on Fool’s Gold in a matter of weeks, backed by crazy remixes from Riva Starr and Mikix The Cat, so keep your eyes and ears open…
Now that Congorock’s excellent video-game break “Runark” single is finally out on vinyl (buy it now at Turntable Lab and everywhere else fine records are sold) we’re helping spread the word with these two previously-unreleased remixes of b-side heater “Exodus.”
Malente (who has a FG single of his own out this summer) beefs up the drums and throws in a retardoid drum-roll breakdown, while French beat obsessive Kap Cad takes a totally different approach, flipping the same track into an uptempo, juke-inspired take for all the clubheads and footwork-ers.
Also London FG fans! Be sure to check Congorock making his live debut this Friday at Club 333.
Here’s a new clip for Malente’s “Music Forever,” which is out now (or out soon? We’re bad with dates) on Southern Fried. Check it out and whet your appetite for Malente’s megajam “I Like It,” dropping this spring on Fool’s Gold with crazy mixes from Riva Starr and Mikix The Cat.
