New Dorp. New York Bootleg

New Dorp

Just wanted to share this quick edit I made of a tune from the latest SBTRK album featuring vocals by Ezra Koenig. I know this guy’s voice verges on being annoying, but something about this song always gets me and I wanted to have a version I could drop for the dancefloor. Just gave it a touch of extra sauce, hope you dig. FREE DOWNLOAD get it while the gettin’ is good.


Hometown Blues


I’m heading back to the homeland next week- first to rugged and raw New Hampshire where I was born, then to the hustle and bustle of New York City where I cut my teeth on concrete. I’m very much looking forward to dipping in some ponds like the one above (photo cred goes to my brother-by-familia: Tod Stevenson) and jumping into my favorite waterfall. As far as I’m concerned, Summer is far from over. I’ve had little stints of vacation sprinkled throughout the past few months, a couple days here, a few more there… but nothing like a proper Frenchman’s break from work. I’ll be DJ-ing again on the rooftop of the James Hotel with my man DJ Cato (who provided a couple of today’s selections) and our special guest Uproot Andy on Aug 31st for all my NYC peeps. Until then, here’s a fresh batch of good ones to keep you bouncing.

    I reckon you can probably hear the sound of these tunes hitting the spot from where you are. Fantastic selection, as usual. Thanks Chuck

Brand Spanking New


This past weekend marked another full loop around the sun for me, and with a little help from my friends and fam and good music, I’m thankfully feeling brand spankin new! Got a full 3 days of celebrating in, including a nice overnight getaway to Joshua Tree for some wavy times around the campfire. Today’s batch of tunes should provide you with a nice balance of feel-good, head-nod, trip-out, and the obligatory touch of grime.

Pharrell :       Happy (NEUS Remix) &       Brand New ft. Justin Timberlake
this French electro house producer absolutely slayed skateboard P’s blissed out smash with some punchy funk, and how come more people aren’t playing this other song from GIRL?!? There’s also a nice reggae-ish cut with Alicia Keys on there that I’m not mad at.

Jaytee :       Thank You Remix ( Busta Rhymes x Q-tip x Alicia Myers )
this funky Aussie might snap your neck with his flip of this recent meeting of the minds (minus the Kanye). Always loved the Alicia Myers original…

Bondax :       Giving It All
poppy house vibes with a fish-hook chorus that won’t let go after one little nibble.

Cut Copy :       We Are Explorers
new new wave meistros do what they do best on this one.

Sharam Jey & Sirus Hood :       Picture Picture
cowbell heavy club stuff that makes the people bounce.

Duke Dumont ft. A*M*E :       Need U (100%)
deeper harder stronger late night house from Mr. Dumont

JD Samson & MEN :       Club Thang
another subversive banger from some perennial badasses

Shit Robot :       We Got A Love ft. Reggie Watts
get over the band name and lose yourself in the late night glory of this collabo with the talented Mr. Watts

Satin Jackets :       You Make Me Feel Good
shout out to regular reader Dangerscouse for the heads up on this one. Pure sunrise gold!

SBTRKT :       Resolute
while I have been underwhelmed by most of what I’ve heard by this guy since the self-titled album (with expectations that were undoubtedly set very high), there’s some beats on this new ep that are definitely making me want to hear more of the good good.

    This HAPPY remix quite literally just made my life #wetdream #killinIT

    First off let me say that you guys have been powering the dance party in my house since the days of captains crates.
    I too am surprised at the lack of shine the rest of the GIRL album is getting. My fav is “It Girl”. feel like he used a MF DOOM style of production on there with the cut off decay on the snare. Keep up the good work guys
