Daily Exclusives on RCRD LBL’s “Fool’s Gold Week”

Posted on Oct 1st, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

We just sent you fine people over to RCRD LBL to grab the new Kid Sister single, but we’re doing it again because the FREEBIES DO NOT STOP.

They’ve decided to make this week “Fool’s Gold Week,” and to celebrate we’ve given them a different exclusive download or stream for every day. It started off with a Nacho Lovers megamix showcasing all the tracks off their forthcoming “Acid Life / Go On” single, continued with a promo download of Sammy Bananas’ “Ladies” off his Braids & Fades EP, and today we dropped a preview stream of A-Trak and Laidback Luke’s massive team-up “Shake It Down.” Tomorrow the Surkin remix of Nacho Lovers’ “Acid Life” (off our Scion comp) makes its debut, and then we close the week real big with another megamix, this time featuring tracks off Jokers Of The Scene’s long awaited Acid Bagg EP.

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

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!
