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

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.
