Holy fucking shit it’s like Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year’s Eve all rolled into one and slapped on two slices of 12 grain bread, lightly toasted with a pickle and chips on the side! This is the 50th release on T&A Records, and we’re damn proud to present Sandwich Island Bass‘s Dark Liquor EP. You can download it for free 99 as a Zip or on our Soundcloud, or if you’re one of those bleeding heart, Park Slope stroller mafia, tea party liberals who believes that musicians should be paid just like every other artist, you can purchase these super crazy Zouk Bass jams on Beatport, iTunes, Amazon, or anywhere else fine MP3s and WAV files are sold. Aloha!
Tittsworth choke-slams Drake “Hold On, We’re Going Home” into his remix of Scottie B & King Tutt “African Chant” and the result is this! Go ahead and follow Titts on Soundcloud, or cry later.
Unruly Records brought us four of the best songs from their 20+ years as the premier Baltimore Club label, and we worked with them to put together this huge remix compilation. It was a ton of work getting this all together. We’re really proud of this collection of remixes from sixteen of our favorite producers. Huge thanks to Scottie B and Shawn Caesar from Unruly, to all the remixers, to Dan Dubois for mastering and to Paul Noonan and Josh Ruck for artwork.
The whole comp is out now!
