Kid Sister “Kiss & Tell” EP Out Today

Posted on Nov 29th, 2011 by Mr Goldbar

Who better to write the book on fun than Kid Sister? The Kiss & Tell EP offers four of Kid Sister’s latest jams with a diverse crew of collaborators. “Mickey” is a club workout from DJ innovators Nadastrom (who just helped pilot Skrillex’s sold-out Mothership tour), while “Hide N Seek” pairs Kid Sis with rap absurdist Riff Raff and bass maestros Sinden & 5kin&Bone5. Hip-hop hero Scoop Deville (Snoop, Game, Fat Joe) mans the boards for “Cliq Claq” (as featured in Stella McCartney’s recent runway shows) as well as a brand-new remix of KS mixtape favorite “Gucci Rag Top,” now featuring a guest verse from fellow Fool’s Gold spitter Danny Brown.

Still, it’s Kid Sister’s inimitable personality on and off the mic that brings these team-ups to life with swaggering verses and clever, lipstick-smeared punchlines to spare. Just like the pulpy romance novels that inspired it’s title, Kiss & Tell offers pure pleasure for everyone. Word to the rap game Danielle Steel! Grab it now on iTunes and Beatport (and check KS guesting on the new Flosstradamus EP too!)

To get you in the mood, here’s a free download of “Mickey,” featuring Kid Sis and dem Nadastrom boys at their bounciest.

Flosstradamus “Jubilation” EP Out Today

Posted on Nov 29th, 2011 by Mr Goldbar

Chicago DJ heroes Flosstradamus are back with the brand new Jubilation EP, their first official release since 2009′s “Big Bills” with Caroline Polachek of Chairlift. Named after a long-gone 90s nightclub in the city’s south suburbs, Jubilation uses the hyperactive drums and booming sub bass of juke house as a jumping off point for new school dancefloor sounds. Led by the Kid Sister collab “Luuk Out Gurl” (which Chicago Reader praises for “somehow bending footwork’s freakier elements to the rules of a radio-friendly pop song”) and the XXX-rated Danny Brown collab “From The Back,” Jubilation showcases Flosstradamus’ club-ready studio skills, honed by years of constant touring around the globe.

Grab it now on iTunes and Beatport – and pick up Kid Sister’s new EP Kiss & Tell while you’re at it! For even more jukin from the Floss boys, check their new Jubilation-themed mixtape. Read More

Flosstradamus “Jubilation” EP feat. Kid Sister & Danny Brown Out 11/29

Posted on Nov 21st, 2011 by Mr Goldbar

Jubilation is the name of a long gone nightclub in the south suburbs outside Chicago that gave teenage partygoers their first taste of the ’90s ghetto house tracks that would soon morph into juke and footwork. So its more than appropriate that Flosstradamus take that title for their brand new EP, where the DJ duo of J2K (Josh Young) and Autobot (Curt Cameruci) use the hyperactive drums and booming sub bass sonics of juke as a jumping off point for new school dancefloor sounds of their very own.

Led by the Kid Sister collab “Luuk Out Gurl” (which Chicago Reader praises for “somehow bending footwork’s freakier elements to the rules of a radio-friendly pop song”) and the XXX-rated Danny Brown collab “From The Back,” Jubilation is a true showcase for Flosstradamus’ club-honed studio skills and willingness to experiment.

Check out their Jubilation-themed DJ mix below, filled with footworking favorites new and old, and be sure to grab Jubilation next Tuesday, 11/29 (same day that Kid Sis’ Kiss & Tell EP hits the internet streets. Yesss!).

This Wednesday (11/23), Floss will be celebrating the EP release with a pre-Thanksgiving throwdown at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, assisted by Supreme Cuts and Calez. Be there! Read More
