Overseas, Baby!

Posted on Sep 25th, 2008 by Sammy Bananas

Well, the big news today is that Braids & Fades is for sale (see below, so pumped about this!) but also new and noteworthy is my upcoming European tour.  I set sail next week on my maiden voyage to dj across the Atlantic.  But while I’m smashing it up overseas, you all can rock to all the exclusives on this mix I made to promote the trip!  Or if you happen to live in Oslo, Trondheim, Helsinki, London or Nottingham, you can get ready to come and see me.  Link and tracklisting following el jump.

New Fool’s Gold 12″s from Four Color Zack & Pretty Titty and Sammy Bananas!

Posted on Sep 25th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

The latest party-starters from our label were unveiled to the world this week in the form of Four Color Zack & Pretty Titty’s Sing Sing Breaks and Sammy Bananas’ Braids & Fades.

FCZ x PT’s single (named after the raucous Sing Sing party they created in Seattle) reinvents the party record for the skinny jeans/big sneaker generation with a collection of gloriously stoopid Jock Jam riffs, gigantic drum fills, and looped-up chants, all with DJ-friendly extended intros and accapella outros for mixing. Sammy’s EP is the follow-up to last year’s High Top Fades, upping the ante conceptually (every track is a cleverly reworked tribute to a different 90s female r&b anthem, hence the Braids & Fades title) while showing off Sammy’s rapid growth as a producer. His sound is more funky than fidget, ditching trendy production tricks to craft a genuinely refreshing take on club music that’s pure pop satisfaction! Turntable Lab has you covered:

Trizzy’s Mindspray: Airplane Dreams

Posted on Sep 23rd, 2008 by A-Trak

For as long as I can remember I’ve had these strange, lifelike dreams when I’m on the plane and it’s the only context where I have these kinds of dreams. I have no idea if this is common or not but it’s always fascinated me. I generally fall asleep as the plane is taking off, and then wake up around the time that they come and serve refreshments down the aisle. Here’s what happens… Read More

Posted on Sep 23rd, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Trackademicks just dropped a YouTube vid for his flip of Kenna’s sorely underrated single “Say Goodbye To Love” featuring his Honor Roll comrade Mike Baker The Bike Maker and a clever loop from Hsiao-hsien Hou’s Millenium Mambo. Get your Netflix on, philistines!

LA Riots’ latest remix (for Crystal Castles’ “Crimewave”) finally, but rather than tossing the internets a mere mp3 leak, they decided to go for the gusto and drop this full DJ mix containing 11 of their biggest remixes to date (including their take on Kid Sister’s “Control” and their recent N.A.S.A. flip). They are generous lads! Download it here and check for Vol 2 in a few weeks.

Some Thoughts For AM And Travis

Posted on Sep 21st, 2008 by A-Trak

It’s the type of thing that you tell yourself would never happen to you or someone you know. Especially when you’re on the plane literally every other day. You know that plane crashes happen but apparently you’re more likely to get killed by a shark than to be in a plane crash. So you just go about your life and get on those flights. You also go about your sometimes stressful life and forget how fortunate you are to do what you love for a living, and to do it in good health. Read More

Solid Gold Weekend

Posted on Sep 19th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

As you eagerly count down the minutes in your cubicle (or kick back stealing wireless in your shared bohemian “artist” dwelling) waiting for the weekend to begin so you can go all Loverboy on its ass, we figured the least we could do is type up a handy guide to all the Fool’s Gold-related events popping off around the globe over the next few days, so you know exactly where to go and what to do.
