fool's gold + scion.


scion did it again - after hooking up with iheartcomix! a few months ago, they are now releasing a new two-disc set featuring unreleased remixes and a mix from one of the freshest labels around, fool's gold. i hope this will be the final extra amount of hype that these guys need until they really go all through the roof.

also on the sampler are two of the most anticipated club tracks of this year, namely 'baggy bottom boys' by jokers of the scene and the surkin remix of 'acid life' by nacho lovers, both clearly indicating that it was all about going back to the original techno/rave roots and becoming more melodic this year. get those gems right now:

jokers of the scene - baggy bottom boys (jokers of the scene remix)
nacho lovers - acid life (surkin remix)

'cross the dancefloor' by treasure fingers has been in sets and dj charts constantly ever since it first showed up on the blogs like a year ago. and just when you thought it is probably a bit played out by now, chromeo come along and give it a rework that, after all the chromeo remixes in the past months, reminds you why these guys are just so good when they are on their own, doing their eighties disco-funk thing.

treasure fingers - cross the dancefloor (chromeo remix)

and my last pick from the sampler is this remix by boys noize' very own shadow dancer for trackademicks, obviously a new signing on fool's gold.

trackademicks - enjoy what you do (shadow dancer remix)

check out scion av, fool's gold and if you're in miami, atlanta, philly or baltimore later this month, rsvp over here for the "fool's gold remixed tour".

The Chromeo mix of Treasure Fingers is fucking outstanding and i say that as someone who doesn't have too much respect for Chromeo. they can be really annoying. strangely light weight. i don't think they really love the eighties disco stuff they lift all the time. they don't got no respect. but BUT in this case they have done some hard kicking FUNK.
professor groove x

I played the surkins remix in a small club last friday and belive me: the place went f**k*n' apeshit!

Btw, if Discodust was girl – I'd date her... Now you know.

The Chromeo mix is definitely the most completely dope track I have heard in a while. Its just so smooth.

Bubbles said...

Nacho Lovers is definitely the track of this post though. I could see how this track could blow a club up!
