Recommended Listening / DJ Mix
This mixtape has been in the works for too damn long and I am glad it finally seeing the light of day. After hearing this for nearly 2 years now in different forms, this is the final version… sans video accompaniment (which I believe you can buy at The Death Set x Win Win Tour right now).
Shit is fr33ky.

I have had the fortune to play this for well over a month now before it’s release, and it has definitely turned so many heads whilst doing so. XXXchange of Win Win/Spank Rock/Fully Fitted fame has made a monster of a dancehall chune for us of your indie rock / space cadet darlings TV On The Radio. For this remix alone I believe must now call them TV Pon The Radio.

Recommended Listening / Moombahton Remix
Just posted over at Fully Fitted, we have a new artist making his debut today with a Moombahton remix. Power Paws is XXXchange’s little cousin that was also blessed with a great ear for making dance music. Moombahton is really making waves in the global bass community and I hope this track gets the attention it needs.
In other Fully Fitted and Moombahton news, yours truly and Roofeeo from The Death Set / TV on The Radio are currently working on a Moombahton EP that will be released via Fully Fitted. Keep your ears peeled.

Recommended Listening / Official Single
It’s official, the first single from WIN WIN’s full length album just got released today on iTunes.
As some of you already know, Fully Fitted got a new project going on called WIN WIN. XXXchange, Devlin, and Ghostdad run the WIN WIN show and the full length album is due to drop Feb 15th on Vice Records.
Lots of blogging been taking place for the leaks of the first single off the record, Release RPM, featuring Lizzie from Gang Gang Dance on vocals.
Now the official version of the single is out in all it’s wonderful glory with an unreleased B-side sitting nicely next to that Moombahton remix from Nadastrom.
To BUY the official single, you must learn.
Here is a new video/commercial/video/thing by Ghostdad for ‘ReleaseRPM’ … Its the lead single from our record due out in FEB. on Vice. The song features Lizzie Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance).
The vocals where originally recorded for another song on the record. Its a pretty heavy dance song called ‘Not Too Late’ with a vocal sample and a SICK Casio SK-1 dog yelp. After trying to get the vocals to fit without much luck we went back to the drawing board and figured out some new parts, and in turn a new song. ’Release RPM’ is the result.

Win Win can finally be announced after all these months of holding back. Win Win has signed with Vice Records and I can tell you that the album is super far out.
Win Win is made up of fellow Fully Fitted members XXXchange, Devlin, and Ghostdad. The album will feature Alexis from Hot Chip, Andrew WK, Spank Rock, Blaqstarr, + Lizzie from Gang Gang Dance which you get the added bonus of downloading the first single featuring said GGD singer!
So proud of the homies and I can’t wait for everyone to get up on this. You can expect the album to be out in January with singles leading up to it as well as a super secret mix dvd in the works.

The always impressive XXXchange did a nice interview for the fine folks over at Prefix Magazine recently. I have always been into knowing what other people are listening to at home, especially Dj/producers. Being a friend of Alex and reading through his iTunes most listened to tunes totally makes sense, but here is a closer look for some other curious fans.

Recommended Listening / New Release
Its finally here! I had the pleasure to sit in on the recording / brainstorming sessions of almost this entire album. Last Fall when I was working an internship with XXXchange of Spank Rock / Fully Fitted fame, Kele was also coming over to the studio to work on what is now The Boxer.
The album should be available to the world today whether it be via iTunes or your local mom & pop (shop locally please).
I am very proud of the work that Alex aka XXXchange put into this album and really hope it is received well amongst the music blogs and the horrible people that run them.
