Calgary’s Hi-Fi Club has been a home away from home for many Fool’s Gold DJs on Canadian runs. So of course we’re psyched that the club’s resident jam-masters Smalltown DJs and Wax Romeo aka Smalltown Romeo are hitting NYC tonight for a guest set at Flashing Lights (88 Palace in Chinatown, RSVP here!!!) alongside Nick Catchdubs, DJ Ayres and Jubilee.
1,000 lucky folks in Austin for SXSW this past weekend got their sweaty mitts on this sampler CD for Donnis’ forthcoming mixtape Fashionably Late. Fortunately for the rest of y’all, he decided to start uploading tracks from it, with this new joint “OD” (produced by “Gone” beatsmith Needlz) leading the pack. Download here!
Slow Roast is the new, FG-distributed label from our homies Kill The Noise and Craze. The dynamic duo (and friends) have cooked up some heavy choons for you guys over the past few months, and they’ll start dropping very, very soon. To whet your appetite, they launched their inaugural “Hogcast” series with a minimix from Craze, an extended mix from KTN, a bunch of interview stuff, and more.
Download Hogcast #1 at Media Contender, and read a Q&A with Craze about the label’s origins while you’re at it. If you’re in Austin this week, be sure to come rock out at Slow Roast’s first ever SXSW party (3-8pm on Friday 3/19 @ Barcelona), featuring sets from the label’s founders, friends like 12th Planet, Star Eyes, and our own Nick Catchdubs, and more. Flyer after the jump! Read More
Head over to The Fader blog for the premier of The Suzan’s “Home,” produced by Bjorn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John. We’ll be dropping it on a limited-edition 7″ later this spring, and it will also appear on the Suzan’s full-length Fool’s Gold album this summer. “Cool joy” pretty much sums it up!
Greenmoney sent over this new podcast promo-ing their upcoming party at Plan B in Brixton this Saturday. Their pals Seiji and Redlight are among the guests, so it’s only natural they contribute sections of the mix as well! Download and check the tracklist here.
