The Cool Kids link with producer Barclay Crenshaw for “U Are In My System”

The Cool Kids are back, and as fans continue to clamor for new music, prayers are answered today as the duo of Chuck and Mikey have linked with producer Barclay Crenshaw for “U Are In My System.”

This upbeat and otherworldly jam is pulled from Barclay’s self-titled album, which is available today. The album also features collabs and work with The Underachievers, Mr. Carmack, Lady Chann and others. The album is chock full of raw funk, with a dab of hip-hop and electronic influence. It’s a very solid outing, and you should grab the whole thing here.

For now, though, stream this high-powered collab with The Cool Kids below.

Since announcing their reunion a few months back, The Cool Kids have been busy. Just last month, Chuck and Mikey performed in front of a sold out crowd at Thalia Hall in Chicago as part of our Red Bull Sound Select show. And on top of working on their new album, Special Grand Master Deluxe, the duo have also announced a new comedy series called The Shit Show.

Created in part with Chicago director Jimmy Regular, The Cool Kids’ new sketch comedy show should impact in the very near future. Yesterday, they took to Twitter to preview the series, which honestly looks amazing. We just have this sneak peek for now, but there’s surely more on the horizon. The Shit Show, coming soon.

Last night, FSD and Red Bull Sound Select joined forces for our final event of 2016. Yes, it’s been an exciting year from the two brands, having curated events worldwide with the likes of Chief Keef, Jeremih, Soulja Boy, Smino, BJ The Chicago Kid, Too $hort, Playboi Carti, Joey Purp, Martin $ky, WarholSS, Femdot, Payroll Giovanni and many more.

But last night, we capped off an incredible year with our final installment, which served as our Holiday Party of sorts, highlighted by a reunion of the legendary Chicago duo The Cool Kids. Yes, that’s correct: Chuck and Mikey are back, and we brought their first reunion show in Chicago to Thalia Hall last night. The results? History. A sold out night, filled with love and incredible energy — and Holiday cheer. As you can tell from the pics and video below, it was an incredible night, and despite being up against odds such as a 3 degree temperature we still brought the city out. In a major way.

Payroll Giovanni and Femdot rounded out the bill, while someguynamedty and Owen Bones handled DJ duties. I have to admit, Femdot really stood out last night and there was a lot of buzz in the room about him. Expect big things from him in 2017.

It was truly a night to remember. We’ll be back in a few months for our official 2017 kickoff, but until then, enjoy the pics and clips below.
