Kid Cudi “Day ‘N’ Nite” Remix f. Pitbull

Posted on Jun 17th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

This has been floating around for a hot second, and while we were waiting to get a better quality mp3 of this to share with y’all, we can wait no longer. The story is that Mr 305 heard “Day ‘N’ Nite,” got super into it (“I love this record, dog…”) and decided to throw a freestyle of his own at the beginning. Toma! Download it here (right-click and save-as).

Also: congrats to Ursula Mann and Ashley Jordan, who won tickets to tonight’s Kid Cudi show @ Knitting Factory in NYC. Even if you didn’t snag the freebies, come through anyway, it’s gonna be a fun one. (Now with open bar 9-10, says the Knit!)

Trizzy Does Europe

Posted on Jun 12th, 2008 by A-Trak

Time for one of my long-winded tour novelas. I recently wrapped up a European tour that spanned the whole month of May, one which I arbitrarily named the Upper Crust Tour at the last minute, in honor of that beloved chain of sandwich shops found in almost all train stations. After doing a whole bunch of tours with other people — the Fool’s Gold fam, Mehdi, Kanye, etc — I felt like going off to clubland (Europe) and back to raw DJing practically every night for 4 weeks. Of course I wasn’t literally by myself the whole month. In most cities I was sharing bills with friends from either continent. But it did feel like a pilgrimage to the land of the DJ, and on off-days I would often link up with other producers and work on music. I loved it. I started a Flickr page towards the beginning of my trip so you can catch my full set of pics here. Let’s dive into it. Read More
