Prince Klassen and I have been really getting into ’60s and ’70s psychdedelic rock and funk from Cambodia and Thailand. We cut up some of our favorite songs from this setting and put together this mix called Kamchruoch (the Khmer word for “fireworks”).
If you download the mix, we ask that you consider making a donation to Tiny Toones, a non-profit organization started by Cambodian-American deportee Tuy “KK” Sobil which provides a safe place for at-risk Cambodian youth to learn Enligh, Khmer, music, b-boying, art, drug prevention and harm reduction, and more.
Today marks the release date of another fantastic release on our lil’ ol’ label here at Crossfaded Bacon HQ. This time we’re taking it back to them Old School Disco Party Breaks with Mike 2600’s *READY TO ROCK EP*. Mike himself created the hilarious and fun Promo video above of the title track on the EP, and I think it gives you a great indication of what this EP is all about with its Old School party vibes and editing. As you’ll notice quickly, each of the original songs on *Ready To Rock* are very clearly inspired by the innovative cut & paste mixes of Double Dee & Steinski, the Disco Rap aesthetic embodied by labels like West End and Enjoy Records, the spaced-out disco sounds of Cloud One, and even the raw sounds of ’60s garage and psych rock. If you didn’t already know, Mike 2600 is already a well known figure amongst some of the world’s biggest DJs (organizing the annual DO IT TO IT party at SXSW and helps compile the accompanying vinyl EP featuring remixes from DJs like Tittsworth, Dave Nada from Nadastrom, Crossfaded Bacon’s Emynd, and Bird Peterson) this is his first official solo release. Accompanied by exclusive remixes from CFB boys Emynd and Scott Matelic, we’re really proud to introduce Mike 2600 to the rest of the world with another CFB release that will sound fresh whether played today, tomorrow, next year, or next decade. Oh and don’t forget to follow him on Twitter.
As a gift to y’all today, you can download Mike’s original *Gigolo Rhythm* and Scott Matelic’s Remix below. Feel free to blog these boys or hit us with comments!
Next Tuesday, November 24th marks the release date of my newest release *THE MOST HIGH EP* featuring Roundhead on the vocals and excellent remixes by Top Billin, So Shifty, Federation Sound, and Mike 2600. The release also contains the previously vinyl-only cut “We Gon Make It” from the MCBU EP on Flamin Hotz as well as a brand spanking new joint called “Don’t Stop” all of which are previewed in the snippet above. Click after the jump for full youtube videos of each song/remix from the EP.
I’m really excited for this release and appreciate the support for Crossfaded Bacon! Don’t forget to follow CFB on Twitter!

I’m so psyched for this release. I’m really proud of the original, and each of the remixes really takes the song somewhere else.
Big ups to Kenny Meez for hooking me up with Roundhead.
New Crossfaded Bacon Records signing Mike 2600 killing it with a couple of really dope tracks over on the Yeeeah Buddy blog. While Mike and I make wildly different stuff, I’m really into his un-trendy style. I like to think that a lot of the stuff I personally make is likable and useful without bending towards whatever trendy aesthetic is currently in season on the blogs, and Mike’s stuff has that exact same feel. I guess the word I’m looking for is “timeless.” This stuff doesn’t sound like it was made in 2009, 1999, or 1989. It just sounds right, and I’m a big fan of music that isn’t concerned with its timeliness (shout out to folks like Eli Escobar and the Nacho Lovers who I feel are a couple other prime examples of this same artistic ethos). Anyway, enjoy the tracks and check back here for more info on Mike 2600’s forthcoming release (with remixes by Emynd and Scott Matelic)!
