About the remixes: The "Summer of 77 Mix" heads into hip-hop territory as the hand-selected MC's each have a personal story to tell before they pass the mic. The production is funky with 70's Afro-funk break, organ drops & rapid fire guitar licks - not to mention plenty of shine on the mic from all the MC's involved. The "Barrio Bump Mix" offers a more percussive dancefloor swing to the same stories, but in a live-at-the-BBQ fashion.

MP3: Ace Reporter - "Stick To" + Brooklyn Show This Saturday
Ace Set To Perform in Williamsburg, Releases Latest Single From Arcadia
Fresh from a jam-packed show at The Delancey, Ace Reporter is on assignment again. This time the Brooklyn singer-songwriter heads to Cameo Gallery (93 North 6th Street, Williamsburg) on Saturday, May 7th for what promises to be a raucous night of rock and electro-sizzle courtesy of Ace and his all-star band. Ace Reporter hits the stage at Cameo at 9PM and is set to serve up offerings from his threesixfive project to the ever-eager crowd. Sharing the bill with Ace are friends and collaborators, Swingset Committee, whose kinetic combo of electro and energy will serve as the perfect complement to Ace Reporter's dynamic set. Tickets for the show will be available at the door for $8.
Ace Reporter is also excited to release "Stick To," the second single from his recently released Arcadia EP. Distorted organs dance with the energy of the city in "Stick To" as Ace loses himself in a Manhattan night and imbibes in both drink and think. "It's hard to say what I do" contemplates Ace, "I make plans I should stick to." The song finds its inspiration from a friend of Ace, an everyman who finds time to write poetry at night following his 9 to 5. "It's a bit insane really," says a pensive Ace. "No one pays the bills, let alone gets rich, from writing poetry (which is too bad). It's just about the purist art I can think of, and I really admire that." Ponder along with Ace and download "Stick To" today for free.
