The spirit of collaboration between friends is exactly how Fool’s Gold got started in the first place. So it’s great to see projects like Mix The Orb take shape. This cassette-only mix is a labor of love between FG art director Dust La Rock and iconoclastic BK producer/DJ Michna, who linked up to dig through 20+ years of music by their favorite group, electronic pioneers The Orb.

There are 100 hand-numbered yellow Mix The Orb cassettes available now at Turntable Lab (and alongside the Fool’s Gold Vol 1 Compilation at Opening Ceremony boutiques starting next week). Hit the jump for a Q&A with Dust and Michna about how Mix The Orb came together. Read More
