“Get Familiar” is Clinton Sparks’ tagline. Surprisingly (and unfortunately), a lot of the country has not gotten familiar with Clinton Sparks. He’s a very respected producer/songwriter/DJ/singer/rapper/etc. in the music industry, however not well-known outside of the L.A./Las Vegas music scenes (okay he’s known, but not as much as perhaps he should be). We’re predicting that this is about to change due to his brand new single “Gold Rush.” People are about to “Get Familiar.”
“Gold Rush” serves as Clinton Sparks’ first single release from his upcoming album Disco Ball & Chain, which releases later this year (we plan on dropping into the studio next week to check out the progress). It’s a tremendously fun song with thundering bass, funky guitar and piano, an annoying little whistle that you hate to love, plus two of today’s hottest rappers–Macklemore and 2 Chainz. Macklemore alone has spots #1, #7, and #78 on the Billboard Hot 100 and singlehandedly bailed out the secondhand-store market. 2 Chainz has begun building a prestigious rap game resume, appearing on some of the hottest singles recently (“Mercy,” “No Lie,” “Rich As F**k,” “F**kin’ Problems”). Tie it all together with Sparks’ producing mastership and ”Gold Rush” has the potential to be a significant Billboard hit–like big significant.
Clinton Sparks previewed “Gold Rush” last Monday in Madison, WI during his Yahoo! Music on the Road tour, but politely asked we not leak it. The sneak peak actually featured Rick Ross, who was later dropped from the single and replaced by 2 Chainz. We’re assuming that 2 Chainz was a fresher choice who has (like Macklemore) recently jumped into the music elite, and could be the difference maker in how big this track becomes. “Gold Rush” couldn’t have been released at a better moment–just in time for the start of summer–one of those perfect summer tracks you cruise to with the windows down, shades on, blaring until the speakers bleed.
“Fresh off his spring tour, Kap Slap has just made everyones summer with the announcement of a new bimonthly hour mix series entitled the “Slapcast.” Since Kap Slap started a new page in his career transitioning to original material, many of us were left concerned we’d never see his unsurpassed signature style bootlegs again. Luckily, Kap Slap has answered our prayers and released his latest mix, which features those bootlegs we love oh so much. The mix starts off HUGE with an edit from one of the most epic tracks out right now, Icona Pop’s, “I Love it.” Whether you need an hour long mix of continuous bangers for the gym, car, or parties, click the download button below and click the “more” button to see the tracklist.” – FNT.com
We are really running out of witty things to say…so, yes the song is free, we wouldn’t dare to imagine charging $1.99, yet, but remember, when you are out with your extra $1.99 think, was the happiness this free download brought worth more than $1.99, maybe, maybe not…. either way go LIKE our page and ENJOY your FREE DL, and go take your savings, and buy yourself something special like Daft Punk
Note about the Song: We actually first heard the song via Monsieur Adi’s Remix and thought it was awesome but were curious to hear the original, so we checked it out and loved Say Lou Lou’s original but thought there was still room for a really upbeat version with our progressive indie flare (we hate the word flare). What really appealed to us about Say Lou Lou was they have this renegade softness, its sorta punk but not, that makes no sense right, but there is sort of care-free beautiful nature to there voices and we thought we could make a summer anthem with this baby, or die trying (side note: at no point were we close to death in the making of this remix) So we got the stems, and wanted to create something that really screams ‘let me in I want to fucking dance, but I also brought my own beer.’ So here is how we did it:
SayLouLou x TheChainsmokers

Quick note from Alex’s Sister about this song: “Do you know Calvin Harris, he is so hot” (no we do not, but agree he is good looking)
1) Drew was supposed to originally be in Daft Punk, but wasn’t french #TeamDrew
2) Fun Fact one is a Lie
3) Now you are smiling…. #TeamAlex
4) We are the only idiots stupid enough to release a remix the week Daft Punk puts out their album
5) Fun Fact 4 is true
