The free Telephoned EP Singles is the duo’s grunge valentine, covering cuts from Cameron Crowe’s soundtrack over Ryan Hemsworth beats. Sammy and Maggie turned Seattle rockers into R&B slow jams in the process (even CC himself approves, tweeting at Telephoned to do “Dyslexic Heart” and “State Of Love And Trust” next!) and now they’ve dropped a video for their take on Screaming Trees’ “Nearly Lost You” (put together by our own Josh Wehle).
New New York! Peep this new joint from Remy Banks of World’s Fair / Children Of The Night and Tanboys representer Bodega Bamz (both of whom have ripped the stage at Fool’s Gold events over the past year). For more Remy, peep the World’s Fair cut “Tip Jar” off our Loosies compilation, and stay tuned for more FG x WF very soon…
Still going through oddball cuts and personal favorites from last year that haven’t gotten much burn on the internets. I will post them and y’all will deal with it! (Full zip of today’s nugs here.) Read More
Late last night, Just Blaze took to Soundcloud in a celebratory mood (happy birthday!) to debut a dance track he’s been playing at our parties: a nice bit of UNTZ built around the indelible piano riff from his “Exhibit A” beat for Jay Electronica. It’s not on his forthcoming Fool’s Gold EP, but a teaser of what to expect from it… and one of many moods you can expect Just to get into while on tour with Baauer this month and next, as they shake bodies and melt faces across North America. Tour dates after the jump.
Our friend Onra (and his friend Lexis) got together in Montreal and put together this mix of post New Jack Swing, pre Timbaland R&B headnodders from the likes of TLC, Zhane, Horace Brown, Jodeci and other masters of jiggy 90s soul (a time when artists could all be seen doing the “throw em up” dance in the videos, say the DJs). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, pour some Dom P and download it now (then watch all the videos from the mix, holy shit!) Read More
The newest Foolcast mix comes courtesy of Brooklyn’s own SicksentZ, the masked man you’ve seen onstage DJing for Mr MFN eXquire at parties around the globe (including the Fool’s Gold Clubhouse at Camp Bisco and HARD Summer) and rocking parties of his own all throughout the five boroughs. This seasoned raver weaves together a gang of original edits, unexpected remixes and all manner of trapped out favorites and grimey new discoveries in his mix. Pour it up and check it out…
Trackademicks and 1-O.A.K. teamed up for Lovelorn, a “two player co-op adventure” covering new wave and indie heartbreak jams (from LCD Soundsystem’s “Someone Great” to the Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now”) in their signature smoothed out Fresh Coast style. Download and get moody… Read More
