Danny Brown‘s “Smokin’ & Drinkin'” first appeared on his album Old as the debauched peak of Side B, and has since become a staple of his live shows and a true fan favorite. So it’s only right that Danny’s anthem (produced by Fool’s Gold captain A-Trak and JMIKE) gets a summer single of its own on July 22nd, complete with remixes from some of electronic music’s most names and wildest upstarts.
Boys Noize strikes first with a frantic blend of breakbeats and rave stabs, while FG newcomer TroyBoi turns in a technicolor trap masterpiece. Jack Beats slow “Smokin'” down to a late-night acid house stomp, and Jersey club king DJ Sliink closes the party with a heavy dose of basement bass. The whole package comes wrapped in appropriately psychedelic cover art from Detroit’s own underground comics hero, Motorbooty creator Mark Dancey, and will be available on limited edition picture disc vinyl from Fool’s Gold later this year.
Danny Brown will be performing “Smokin'” and more from the UK’s iconic Wembley Stadium this weekend (July 11th and 12th) as part of an hip-hop bill alongside Eminem and Odd Future. These stadium shows cap off a triumphant European run for Danny that has included festival performances at Glastonbury, Field Day, Parklife.
