Meyhem Lauren is Queens rap royalty, throwing down 24k bars on stage (and on screen!) with Action Bronson while dropping respected underground solo releases of his own. Piatto D’Oro is his most majestic work to date, a free album on Fool’s Gold featuring speaker-knocking singles “Money In My Pocket” and “Badmon Ting” alongside 13 other high-octane tales of fine silks, lobster dinners, and wilding the f**k out as only Laurenevitch can. With everyone from Alchemist and Harry Fraud to Large Professor and DJ Muggs on headnod duties, Piatto D’Oro is a must-listen… Mey and Fool’s Gold have teamed up to tuck your whole summer in. Download it here and receive Piatto D’Oro as a promo CD when you pre-order the T-shirt at store.foolsgoldrecs.com.
A-Trak always puts a unique, er, spin on things. The electronic music tastemaker, DJ hero and all-around cultural force kicks the summer off with the new single “Parallel Lines,” taking the feel-good vibes of last year’s “We All Fall Down” (over 10M streams) to even catchier new heights. With festival favorites Phantogram providing soaring vocals, A-Trak mixes guitar riffs with his signature, turntable-inspired production and peerless ear for beats. The end result is a lush, genre-defying jam ready to burrow into your brain for the next several months. Throw an umbrella in your drink and vibe on out… “Parallel Lines” comes out 5/20 but you can listen to it now!
Fame School start the summer jam action early with “Bag,” mixing classic NY rap energy with modern production boom. The New York duo of Telli and Slim are no strangers to viral bangers (producing Manolo Rose’s “Run Ricky Run” and “Superflexin” feat French Montana), and have already been blasting their newest knucklehead anthem in the city’s clubs (including an extra-live performance at the Fool’s Gold Boiler Room event) and across social media, with heavy support from influential online host TaxStone. Crank your speakers, break open the fire hydrants, and shout along with Telli: “no disrespect to the plug, I’m the motherf***kin outlet!” Listen to “Bag” right here.
We hitting you with two parties to celebrate “Bag”! Turn up with Fame School + the FG Fam this Thursday night at Tropical 128. Music provided by Cipha Sounds, Get Live, Jason Smith & Teddy King. If Friday night is more your thing pop in to The Lively for a set by DJ Soul plus a very special surprise guest from the FG roster. Flyer after the jump. Read More
With his new album Potential, producer The Range is making waves with what Pitchfork praises as “moving, emotionally resonant electronic music.” Rome Fortune is doing the same for hip-hop, putting his soul on the line throughout the acclaimed Jerome Raheem Fortune LP. These two musical upstarts hit the road for a co-headlining tour starting May 4th in LA, and celebrate the occasion with this new remix, where The Range lends his heady vibes to Rome’s “Paid Back Loans.” Listen to it now and check out the Dance Remixes EP with a new one from Codes! Tour dates after the jump.
Felon is the London house trio of Archie, George and James. After their smash single “Isla” took over the planet, Fool’s Gold enlisted these producers to lend their soulful, feel good touch to Rome Fortune’s “Dance” (featured on the recent Night Shift compilation). Immediately afterwards, we were pleasantly surprised to find “Bones” in our inboxes, melding Felon’s signature, Ibiza-ready smoothness with muscular horns and a heavy-duty bass riff. It’s not your everyday jam, and definitely not what you might expect from Fool’s Gold… which kinda makes it the perfect tune for us to release! Wait for the next available sunset and turn this one waaay up. Listen to “Bones” now.
In the spirit of the holiday, Fool’s Gold is proud to puff puff give the world a new take on Baauer’s iconic remix of Flosstradamus’ “Roll Up,” courtesy of Brooklyn producer Infuze. Road-tested on Brillz’ “Twonk Di Nation” tour and Ultra Music Festival (and a highlight of Baauer’s Coachella set), Infuze’s “re-roll” turns future bass melodicism, out-of-control drum fills, and the absolute dankest of drops into the hardest DJ tune this year. Out just in time for Floss’ HDYFEST at Red Rocks on 4/20, get your lighters up and play this at the most obnoxious volume possible. Listen to Infuze’s “Roll Up” here.
