Just because A-Trak has become an international dance superstar doesn’t mean he can’t throw down pure hip-hop bangers with the best of them. So for his contribution to Fool’s Gold Vol 1, Trizzy goes straight for the subwoofers with “Ray Ban Vision,” enlisting G.O.O.D. Music upstart CyHi Da Prynce (who you last heard stealing the show on Kanye’s “So Appalled”) to drop extra-fly couplets on top of all the scratched-in synths and atomic kick drums. Grab it at RCRD LBL and check for the rest of our comp when it drops on 10/25.
Speaker-shredding rock duo Sleigh Bells and dancefloor futurist Kingdom might not seem like the most natural pairing in the world. Yet once again, our regal friend defies expectations in the most excellent of ways with his new, chopped up remix of SB’s “Tell Em,” which RCRD LBL dropped as an exclusive today. Float with the bass…
If you need more Kingdom in your life (and frankly, who doesn’t?) grab his That Mystic EP which just saw vinyl release, and check for upcoming shows on his blog including a Halloween edition of the Club Infinity party in NYC.
This week our friend (freund!) Malente returns to North America as part of the Scion Radio tour, along with Douster, Blu Jemz and Franki Chan. RSVP here for shows in Tampa, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and Cleveland.
Just because we love you, here’s a free download of the Douster remix of Kid Sister’s “Daydreaming.” And if you still haven’t picked up Malente’s FG disco hit “I Like It”, what are you waiting for?
Head over to the SPIN site to download The Suzan’s cover of The Strokes’ “Take It Or Leave It.” Not sure how they pegged our gals as “noise punks” (though they have been known to get noisy and/or punky when the spirit hits) but we wholeheartedly agree that the song is a must-hear!
More cover treats from The Suzan coming soon. Meanwhile get psyched for the release of Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat on Oct 26th!
Flashing Lights, the monthly dance party thrown by FG’s Nick Catchdubs, DJ Ayres and Jubilee, turns two this Friday (10/8) at Public Assembly in Brooklyn. FL has hosted many Fool’s Gold guests over the past two years, and this one is no exception: Nacho Lovers will be crossing the border to house up the birthday vibes, joined by fellow Torontonian Grahmzilla, who will be tag-teaming with Jubilee as part of their group, Bassanovva. The two have put together a mix of originals, remixes and other fresh tracks to get you excited for the party, including the Nacho Lovers remix of forthcoming Bassanovva single “Terrordactyl” on Sinden’s Grizzly imprint. It’s a family affair!
