You already know dude as one of the architects of Spank Rock and a massively creative and in-demand remixer and producer from everyone from Santogold to the Kills.

Hit the jump to find all the dirt on kitchen hints, DFA studio internships, P-Thugg keyboard reccomendations, and upcoming projects (which include tracks on the forthcoming Kid Sister LP and Bag Raiders EP). Our man got joints! You can also catch a DJ set from XXXChange at the Guggenheim (!!!) in NYC this Friday, Feb 6th. Read More

As you may have read, A-Trak has a brand new, officially licensed mix CD coming out on April 14th called Infinity +1. (Check the schmoove cover artwork by Dust La Rock. It’s all in the lips.) The mix features everyone from John Dahlbäck to Kid Sister to Gonzalez to NORE, and you can see the full tracklisting after the jump. Trizzy will be touring stateside in support of the disc, and you can check those dates – where else? – after the jump.
In other A-Trak updatery, you can try your luck at winning a limited-edition A-Trak Running Man Serato picture disc over at thefader.com, perhaps the one place on the internets that likes to say “after the jump” as much as we do. Read More

It’s been a bit since my last Food Gold post, but I couldn’t pass up this opportunity. I’m out in Madsion, WI right now on the third day of my Midwest swing, but yesterday I went to eat sausages with Curt from Flosstradamus and Willy Joy. The venue was Hot Doug’s, and this was my first trip to Chicago’s legendary dog establishment. Follow the jump for the whole story.

Tonight TTC is having a big party in Paris to celebrate their 10th birthday. In honor of this milestone I’ve decided to give away a freebie! This is a song I made with TTC a little over 2 years ago. It was featured on my Dirty South Dance CD. It’s called “Quitte La Piste” which means “get off the dancefloor”… telling lame dudes to vacate so that we can take over, of course.
Bon anniversaire les gars…

Our promo-only Fool’s Gold Remixed 12″s finally arrived in the house house house. Four of the biggest tracks off our Scion A/V compilation from this past fall on one thick slab of vinyl: Chromeo’s funked up take on Treasure Fingers’ “Cross The Dancefloor,” Surkin’s choppy version of Nacho Lovers’ “Acid Life,” Rusko dropping dubstep bombs all over Kid Sister’s “Pro Nails,” and Jori Hulkonnen’s hypnotic, techy remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day ‘N’ Nite.”
This is a limited, one-time only pressing for friends, fam and assorted DJs, but we were able to get a few copies over to Turntable Lab, so cop it while you can!

Things you might not know about Sammy Bananas: he has a rather large collection of 90s independent rap vinyl (L Da Head Toucha!) and composes for jazz flute. Things you already know (and love) about Sammy Bananas: he is one damn clever DJ!
The young lad is headed down to Australia for a few shows next month and put together an enjoyably funky new tour mix that leans heavy on tracks from the red continent. Listen close for the surprises!
Tracklist and tour dates after the jump. You can also party with Sammy stateside this weekend in Chicago and Wisconsin, all that info’s after the jump too. Read More
