Fool’s Gold Radio – October 2012

If you follow TNJ you know the unbelievable respect and admiration that I have for A-Trak is only second to my sheer awe of his mixing skills. He’s one of the only people I can sit and listen to for an hour, have no idea what any of the songs are, can’t tell where one of them begins or ends, and I’m still 1000% engaged. I love it. The Fool’s Gold head honcho takes to the decks again for his record label’s October mix, playing out Tuna Melt, his HUGE collaboration with the Aussie rock star Tommy Trash! Track listing after the jump!

Xaphoon Jones – XJV3

Well that didn’t take long. After we got another leak yesterday, Xaphoon Jones decides that today is the day to drop the final installment of the Xaphoon Jones Mixtape series, XJV3. We’ve seen a few of the tracks before like his Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay remix and the awesome bootleg of Meek Mill’s Amen but the rest of the tracks are all new.

It’s awesome seeing the man Yuri Beats get his shot at the Orange Juice Break (with some amazing production) and we get a Gucci Mane verse added on to the remix of High For This as well as Xaph’s take on Diplo’s bounce banger Express Yourself. There’s an interview he did with ClubTapes which you should all take a couple minutes to check out to see why Noah Beresin is one of the smartest dudes in the business right now and grab the entire tape ASAP!

Synchronice – ThatNewJam Exclusive Interview & Guest Mix

Last time we got a chance to talk with James & Will Saulsky of Synchronice, they were opening for Dillon Francis at the Westcott Theater in Syracuse and threw down an absolutely unbelievable performance. (You can see their recap video here). Since then, the guys have had official releases on Big Alliance, Into The AM, Funky Element, and Play Me Records and have seen their fanbase skyrocket in size. I had a chance to check in on the brothers and see what they’ve been up to this summer. They went above and beyond and returned the questions with an exclusive guest mix for the site which showcases some of their favorite originals and remixes and even has some of their unreleased tracks! Hit the jump for the full tracklist!

TNJ: So a whole summer’s passed since you guys played at the Dillon Francis show, what’s been the highlight of the season for you guys personally/professionally?

Will: Personally getting recognition from some our favorite producers like Far Too Loud, xKore, 3Lau and others was just an amazing feeling. It’s awesome to know that people we respect hugely have heard and enjoyed our music.

James: Watching our Facebook page blow up from 2000 to 5000 in just a few months has been pretty wild as well. Support from all these people means a lot to us.

TNJ: I was clicking around your Facebook page and was really pumped when I saw that you guys post tutorials for up-coming producers on different parts of electro production. What made you start that and do you guys plan to keep up with it?

Will: Mostly because people kept asking for us to make them haha. We’re definitely gonna keep making them though and it’s great to see how much people appreciate them.

James: We also started doing some UStream broadcasts of our entire production process, which went pretty well, so we would like to do more of those too.

TNJ: One of the reasons that I love keeping up to date with all of your newest stuff is that your versatility keeps everything interesting. You’ve done everything from really melodic progressive stuff to heavy dubstep, moombah, gritty electro…what’s your favorite to produce and your favorite to DJ?

Will: Electro is probably our strongest genre, although we definitely like to mix it up. As far as DJing goes any kind of house music is our favorite. Mixing glitch hop is fun too.

James: I’ve been really into blending trance melodies with driving drops lately. My favorite moments in shows are often during breakdowns and house and trance are great for that. Glitch and drumstep are a lot of fun too.

TNJ: What program do you guys choose to produce on most and why?

Will: Logic Pro because it’s very intuitive and we know it better than any other program.

TNJ: What is each of your favorite songs to have come out this year?

Will: I couldn’t possibly decide honestly, I’m terrible at picking favorites haha.

James: Likewise. Our remix of Sick Epic Dope Bangin by Drop Goblin was the first single we had chart though so it was definitely the best received.

TNJ: I see you guys go wild for the cat meme’s and stuff like that…you guys got any love for the dogs?

Will: Hell yeah we love all members of the animal kingdom. We have a pet cat so that would explain our neglect for canines.

James: I’d love to get a dog but our cat, Midnight, would probably attack us in our sleep if we got one now.

TNJ: Mittens Francis vs. Professor Meowingtons…who ya got?

James: Depends if the fight is on twitter or not. Physically Meowingtons is older and stronger but when it comes to emotional combat Mittens is untouchable. Just look at what he did to Garfield and you’ll see what I mean.

TNJ: What are you guys doing when you’re not focusing on the music end of your life?

Will: Saving baby polar bears from extinction and protecting the Amazon rain forest.

James: And surfing. It’s a nice way to relax after saving the rainforest.

TNJ: I know James is heading back to Syracuse in the real near future, does the space apart affect how you two are able to make tracks?

Will: Yeah it’s tough. There’s lots of emailing and skyping involved and it definitely makes it more difficult to produce together but we make it work.

James: We work very quickly together as well and having school work in addition to being apart makes it a lot harder to finish songs at that pace. If we get really busy again I’ll probably start coming home for a few weekends.

TNJ: I know for sure that I wanna see you guys throw down live again, do you guys have any more shows planned for the upcoming future or collaborations releases you can speak on? Shameless plug time guys.

Will: We’re releasing a free EP of remixes of popular songs very soon and we’re currently finishing up two EPs of originals and we’ll be shopping those to labels in the near future. After all of that’s wrapped up we’re hoping to start playing a lot more shows.

James: That’s pretty much all we can say at this point. There are a few other things in the works but nothing confirmed yet. All I can say is that if any of them work out it would be amazing for us.

A-Trak – Diplo and Friends BBC R1Xtra – September 9th, 2012

I’m not sure that I really need to say anything outrageous to express what a treat this is. Fools Gold head honchos A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs took over the Diplo and Friends show last Sunday and we’re lucky to be able to relive A-Trak’s opening hour at the decks courtesy of his SoundCloud! Spanning every possible amazing song choice you could ask for from Dog Blood to J Dilla to Kill Paris to his own remixes and originals, this is an hour long audio adventure that anyone could appreciate.

Snap! – Rhythm is a Dancer (Aylen Remix)

I am now 100% convinced that there are few producers in the game right now with versatility anything like that possessed by Aylen. We’ve been following his ascent through the EDM ranks for a while here at TNJ and we got a track that he did exclusively for Benzi’s GIRL|TRAPZ mixtape. He takes 90’s classic Rhythm is a Dancer and slows it, screws it and chops it into a filthy trap banger fit for any crowd. The entire mixtape is included with tracklist after the jump for those looking for over an hour of trap to knock to.

Kill Paris – Now That’s What I Call Sexy Music Vol. 1

I’ll be honest, this is the first I’ve heard an R&B heavy DJ set but when Kill Paris is behind the decks there’s no need to worry, you already know its quality. Spanning everything from Barry White to T-Pain to his own pantydropstep originals, the Ableton-certified trainer gives us over an hour of simply great vibes available for free! If you happen to follow him on Twitter, you’ll have seen his tweets back and forth with Dillon Francis about a collaboration so keep your eyes peeled for this and check the tracklist after the jump!
