Psyched about this week’s edition because it features a lot of tunes I haven’t really seen get much shine on the usual internet channels – which is exactly what I wanted this column to showcase (as opposed to my two cents on, like, “Death Of Autotune.” No shots…)
Hit the jump for new Bone Thugs & Harmony, TI, Camp Lo, Killer Mike, DJ Deadeye and Friends, Bounceback, and – just because – a dancehall song. Read More

If you’ve been out to check OG “house gangster” DJ Sneak at the clurrrb any time this past year, you probably noticed a thumping new mix of “Day ‘N’ Nite” bumping out of the speakers. Well, turns out it’s Sneak’s personal creation, and we’re happy to share it with y’all today.
“Day ‘N’ Nite (Sneak Bang Acido Mix)” [mp3]
For more Sneak on Fool’s Gold, pick up Laidback Luke & A-Trak’s “Shake It Down” vinyl / digital single for his epically groovy “Sneak’s Shaken Beats” mix.

The newest addition to the FG family is Brooklyn’s Kingdom, who’s debut single “Mindreader” featuring Shyvonne will be out soon, backed by some cra-zee remixes and b-side heatrock “You.” (and along with the Fool’s Gold 12″ and digital single, our pals at Acephale will be dropping an extra-limited 7″ version!)

Stray & Grass is the brainchild of Christopher Brave aka one half of Bag Raiders aka “Stray” and his flatmate (“Grass,” duh) who devised a whole magical world of food / rap themed t-shirts and cheeky r&b songs. Dive into the site, download the mixtape, buy some tees!
In other Bag Related news, Bang Gang has just released their “Turbo Love” remix single in OZ (stay tuned for an exclusive Jan Driver mix on the Raiders’ forthcoming Fool’s Gold EP) and the guys produced a elaborate rap epic for countryman MC Snob Scrilla. Download em!

Volume 2 of the FOOLCAST series comes from none other than our own Italian electro prodigy Congorock, but it’s not what you might expect. We listen to all kinds of stuff at FG HQ and want the FOOLCAST to reflect that – so we asked him to put together a mix of some of his punk and hardcore favorites that would show off a different side of his personality and keep things musically unpredictable on the blog.
Says Rocco: Hey brothers, here’s my hardcore punk mix for Fool’s Gold. I wanted to call it “The Furious Years” like something related to the past – its old stuff (nothing after 2003) that I listened to when I was younger. It was total fun working on this because I rediscovered music I didnt remember at all! I put some tracks from my old bands (La Quiete and Death Of Anna Karina), Steve Aoki sings on the This Machine Kills track (his old band), and there’s even a His Hero Is Gone track called “Fool’s Gold”. I hope you like it!
Download the podcast (and subscribe to the whole series to get future mixes as soon as they drop!) at iTunes or via your favorite RSS reader at the FG podcast page. Tracklist after the jump, more heat on the way!
Update: For more Conogorock on the club tip, check out his Keep Watch party mix at the Mishka Bloglin. Ay! Read More
