Trizzy Likes… Nore’s Newport Chain

Posted on Aug 20th, 2008 by A-Trak

NORE’s got a whole myspace gallery dedicated to his Newports-inspired chain.

You really gotta respect the attention to detail. It says Thugged Box instead of Menthol Box. They’re called Noreports. Sounds like The War Report (his first album, duh — or am I reading into it too much?). Oh and the box opens too. God bless America.

Nacho Lovers Acid House Mix

Posted on Aug 19th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

To coincide with a “Vinyl Archaeology” article they penned for the latest issue of The Fader, our own Nacho Lovers are sharing some of their favorite acieeeeeeeeed jams with you. Says Fistfight: “Here is a mini mix of some Acid house tracks we love. A few classics, a few lesser known or under-appreciated gems, and a few great acid tracks that aren’t 10+ years old.” Download it here, check tracklist after the jump, and read their article in the latest issue of the mag (Busy Signal and Tough Alliance on the cover).

Fool’s Gold x Dim Mak: The Lost Flicks

Posted on Aug 18th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Remember the epic Fool’s Gold x Dim Mak North American tour from this past spring? We were armed with one of The Cobra Snake’s extra cameras (I shall call it “The Rattler”) during the whole trip, but after everything wrapped, the pics mysteriously disappeared. Until today! Steve just sent us this link to check the recent vintage tour snaps over at the Snake. As a bonus, check our tour diaries (originally published on thefader.com) after the jump. Read More

Trizzy’s Mindspray: Airplane Food

Posted on Aug 16th, 2008 by A-Trak

I meant to post this 24 hours ago but internet access is like the Holy Grail when you’re on the road.

I landed in London after the classic yet dreaded overnight flight. I had a bad case of the Middle Seat Blues but I did manage to get 2 or 3 hours of sleep in there. As we took off I was starving and really looking forward to my meal. I was in the second-to-last row though so I knew I’d have to twiddle my thumbs for a hot minute. Then the guy on my left got his meal before everyone. He had one of those “special” orders. I was thinking, I’m going to start asking for kosher meals when I book these flights. Most of you know that I’m Jewish, but I eat everything, I don’t really care. However if this will allow me to eat before everyone else, sign me up! Bring on the airplane latkes, baby. Those meals are probably better anyway since they make less of them.

Trizzy Likes: Burger Sneakers

Posted on Aug 13th, 2008 by A-Trak

My blogging is brief today because I’m in the studio… but who could pass on posting this? The real question is: if you had one of these, would you eat it?

DJ Premier On Working With Ill Bill

Posted on Aug 11th, 2008 by A-Trak

This is dope for so many reasons. Don’t forget that Dave produced (and I scratched on) the “Cult Leader” joint on Non Phixion’s first album. I love when Premier says “Necro, you crazy motherfuckin’ psycho fuckin’ killer producer.”
