Last week we had Dave1 playing at the store for Tight Space, our new live streaming show with G-Technology, featuring exclusive DJ sets from the FG fam. Check out what went down – as well as a new Q&A with Dave and Tight Space host Elliot Aronow – and go “like” the G-Tech Facebook page for details on the next episode, airing this Wednesday (8/3) with a special guest set from A-Trak.
Hypetrak has some great shots (this resized version doesn’t do justice!) of the A-Trak “A” currently seen onstage throughout North America on the Magic 8-Ball tour. They also talk to Trizzy about the making of the wooden behemoth and what’s actually going on behind the decks during the show.
Read up on your read ups, and catch A-Trak, Kid Sister and The Gaslamp Killer on the Magic 8 Ball Tour this week when it hits Denver (tonight!), SLC, Vancouver, Portland, Seattle and SF. Read More
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.
The resulting mix is an awesomely heady trip worth dusting off your tapedeck for. 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
Check out some Fools in the new Hennesy Blending Of Art project: a Dust La Rock-designed bottle for A-Trak and a Kid Sister bottle from Fafi. The dynamic duos give some background on their collab in theseinterviews.
On the day of the “Barbra Streisand” release, Village Voice got Trizzy and AVH together to spill the beans on everything Duck Sauce: the name, the studio secrets, the celebrities, the karaeoke. Read on!
The best part of touring Australia (other than the fact that they love DJs and partying more than almost anywhere else on the planet) is the ability to hang with awesome Aussies like Sydney synth team Bag Raiders and Heaps Decent honcho / jack-of-all-trades deejay Levins on the same trip. Good times on the reg!
This trio has been responsible for so many laughs while we’re overseas, we figured why not get Chris, Jack and LevDawg to spread the joy, and take a few minutes to talk about their favorite homegrown comedies. With the Bag Raiders’ self-titled new album out now, there’s no better time to share these (down) underground favorites.
Hit the jump for roundtable chuckles, and be sure to pick up the Bag Raiders’ Fool’s Gold EP Big Fun (featuring Donnis raps and XXXChange & Jokers Of The Scene remixes) on vinyl, iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else music is awesome.
