Posted on Jul 8th, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

UK production duo Greenmoney have been rocking Fool’s Gold HQ with some truly inventive remixes as of late, from their absolutely massive festival rework of Trevor Loveys and Sinden’s “Organ Grinder” to their hybrid, funky takes on Busy Signal’s “Tic Toc” and our own DJ Gant-Man’s “Juke Dat Girl.”

We’ll be dropping Greenmoney’s debut original tunes on Fool’s Gold later this year, but in the meantime you can keep up to date with their productions, favorites and inspirations “broadcasting from a rave shed near you” on the Greenmoney radio show, which is now available for download every week on Brooklyn Radio (in addition to the live show every Sunday night on Ministry Of Sound Radio in the UK). The first episode is up now, peep the ace tracklist after the jump. Read More

Theophilus London Added To A-Trak’s 10,000LB Hamburger Tour

Posted on Jul 6th, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

Right as the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour was kicking off this weekend, we found out that Rye Rye had to drop off the trek. But hip-hop don’t stop, so we are psyched to announce the addition of Theophilus London to A-Trak’s state-to-state calvacade of goodtimes (Treasure Fingers is still holding it down, along with all other previously announced special guests). If you’re not familiar with Theo’s particular brand of mic science, check this Fader profile, download his debut mixtape, and give a listen to his latest jam, a remix of The Very Best’s “Warm Heart Of Africa” featuring our boy Ezra Koenig.

Theo hops on the tour 7/11 in Houston – full lineup and ticket info after the jump! Also be sure to follow A-Trak, Treasure Fingers and Mr London on Twitter for the latest and greatest in room service mayhem AS IT HAPPENS. Read More

Kingdom BK B-Day + New Club Vortex Mix

Posted on Jul 6th, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

This Friday (7.10) at Glasslands in Brooklyn, prepare for one bass-ed out birthday celebration with Kingdom, who turns one year older at his Club Vortex residency with a little help from friends Maluca of Mad Decent and DJs Nguzunguzu and Total Freedom (excellent MySpace name!) of LA’s Wildness party.

The DJs also put together a new mix for the party, featuring a bunch of brand new + unreleased Kingdom tracks. We asked our royal pal if there was a tracklist and he replied “sadly not really. but kinda good too… its in the great tradition of mysterious list-less mixtapes i guess?…in that they sent me the most fragmented tracklist from three different email addresses and half of the info was listed as “?????” they recorded parts live mixing on vinyl, parts on ableton, parts on CDJs, and recorded live sound effects, vocals, and live instruments over the whole thing (which is what they do at their wildness party in L.A. too).” Download it here and check for yourself!
