The Travis x Cool Kids collab they premiered at our SXSW showcase finally sees official release in studio form. Grab it at Nah Right and cop Mr Barker’s solo LP Give The Drummer Some, featuring Kid Sister and a bunch of other talented rapping folks, coming soon! For even more, check Haze’s 12oz Prophet blog for some info on the cover art.
Jokers Of The Scene head back overseas next week to kick off their “No Gods, No Tour Managers” trek. The duo will traverse the old continent for a month, armed with only the best in dancefloor decapitators and mind expanders – including tons of new JOTS originals (which you’ll be hearing on FG very soon) and forthcoming remixes for the likes of Chromeo and Salem. Diversity!
While we’re on the topic of switching things up, the latest remix from Booth + Chameleonic’s beat lab is not a clubber at all, but a slow-rolling slice of Madchester-dipped psychedelia. JOTS’ “Treehouse Dub” of their old Ottawa neighbors The Acorn’s wonderfully named “Bobcat Goldwraith” is out this week as part of a new remix LP , but you can soak up all it’s washed out, 101 BPM glory right now thanks to our friends at RCRD LBL.
To rave things right back up, grab JOTS’ “Revolting Joks,” out now on iTunes, Beatport, and vinyl.
We still here and we still hungry! Hit the jump for Yelawolf throwbacks, New Jack Swingin, and a bunch of goodies from all the usual and unusual suspects who make Thursday the perfect day for some Rappin Ass Rapps. Read More
Kingdom’s monthly Club Infinity bash with Dre Skull and pals is back this Saturday (Sep. 18th) at Santos Party Haus, featuring guest sets from Dubbel Dutch and Dipset’s MPC monster araabMUZIK. Not to be missed, but in case you need further convincing (shame on you!) Kingdom has dropped some mp3 treats as a taste of what the evening has in store.
Two independent record labels, united under a groove…
Last month we teamed up with our friends from Stones Throw, laced up our dancing shoes and hit the road for the DISCOTHEQUE extravaganza! Four nights of “disco, boogie and house music” (as the hand-drawn flyer advertised) from Peanut Butter Wolf, A-Trak, J-Rocc and Nacho Lovers, along with special guests Mayer Hawthorne, Treasure Fingers and Holy Ghost!
All kind of photos after the jump, but before you dig in, go download our latest Foolcast, featuring Peanut Butter Wolf’s live set from the Chicago show. Shout outs and basslines galore!

FG friend Alexander Robotnick unleashed a new treat on the Jackmode blog this week, a bootleg of DHS’s classic “House Of God” treated with some signature AR synthwork. Dimensional holofonic sound indeed…
For more Robotnick, his “Obsession For The Disco Freaks” is out now on iTunes, Beatport and good ol vinyl, with remixes by Lil Bo Tweak, Freeform Five and Nacho Lovers. If you haven’t figured it out yet, this is a hidden Fool’s Gold gem that we will flog until the end of time. So get right!
