I’ve been pretty sporadic in my posting. Between general apathy and then being spurred on by year-end list-frenzy, I’ve neglected CFC quite a bit lately. I figure one of the best ways to re-enter the fray is with two things I love coming together in a wonderful way.
Last year, Peaking Lights went from basement sensation to soundtracker of the coolest bar-b-ques all over Wicker Park, Echo Park, and Williamsburg.
Last year also saw the lean-sipping duo Main Attrakionz break out of the bay area with their stunning mixtape, 808’s & Dark Grapes II.
In the middle of December, Weird World Record Company brought these two duos together for one-fourth of a 12″ remix project, 936 Remixed. Squadda B, one half of the Oakland rap crew, chopped and screwed Peaking Lights’ “Marshmellow Yellow,” making Indra Dunis’ usually sultry alto sound booming and almost demonic while B and his pal MondreMAN unspool line after line of sticky, syrup-coated verses over top.

You can stream and/or download the track below:
