Duck Sauce “Barbra Streisand” Video Featuring… Everybody

Posted on Sep 27th, 2010 by A-Trak

“Uptown, downtown / Turn the beat around town / Hip hoppin’, beat boppin / There’s no stoppin’ / To the sound of the New York City beat…”

It is with great pleasure that we bring to the official video for Duck Sauce “Barbra Streisand,” directed by So Me.

I don’t even really want to write about the guests or the process of making the vid, just check it out and I hope you enjoy it. I think it speaks for itself.

Kid Gloves Bare Knuckle EP Out Now!

Posted on Sep 14th, 2010 by Mr Goldbar

Continuing the proud tradition of Fool’s Gold artists with the k-word in their name, it’s not another new school rapper but Kid Gloves, an undeniably groovy UK duo delivering knockout punches of cut-up funk directly to your earholes. Pow!

Even if you don’t know it yet, you’re already familiar with the guys through their production and songwriting for the likes of Ladyhawke, Little Boots and VV Brown, and their copious solo work as Freeform Five and the Freelance Hellraiser. Now with their debut single on FG, Kid Gloves have taken their deft studio touch and applied it directly to the dancefloor.

“Bare Knuckle” and “Brand New Dance” provide their hooks in the form of kinetic disco and house riffs, looped up to the heavens and peppered with manic drum fills and quirky breakdowns. Remixes by fellow students of the sweet science In Flagranti and His Majesty Andre keep the party energy pinned down to the mat all night long.

Buy the Bare Knuckle EP now on Beatport, iTunes and all other digital retailers and hit the jump for an appropriately bugged out promo video that In Flagranti put together for their remix. Read More

Farewell Fat Beats

Posted on Sep 10th, 2010 by A-Trak

After 16 years of being the mecca of underground hip hop, Fat Beats closed its last remaining stores in New York and LA. I have a lot of history with the company, since my first record label Audio Research was distributed through them. So it was an honor to be invited to perform on the last day of a week of in-stores, last Saturday, alongside many greats like DJ Premier, Just Blaze and DJ Scratch. I did a full set of routines, I think it was about 17 minutes long! That’s like 3 DMCs, yo. Peter Rosenberg captured some highlights, peep the video… and Fat Beats, I tip my fedora to thee.
