The FG fam is making our annual party pilgrimage down to Austin this month for the official Fool’s Gold SXSW Showcase on Friday, March 20th at Gypsy Lounge. Remember when you saw Kid Cudi at our first showcase? Flosstradamus? Danny Brown?!? This year, the cross-country coalition of awesome includes fresh signings from ATL (futuristic superstars Rome Fortune and Bosco, new rap heroes TM88 and ManMan Savage), LA (beat crew Athletixx and rap diva Leaf) and NYC (underground upstarts Fame School & Manolo Rose), alongside FG mainstays Brenmar, Nick Catchdubs and Shash’U, surprise friends and fam like Jersey crooner (and Yeezus favorite!) Fetty Wap, and many more, with A-Trak himself holding it down as master of ceremonies all night long. The event is free with SXSW badge or wristband, and limited $10 public tickets will be available at the door. Peep the full lineup after the jump, along with a video recap of last year’s showcase to remind you just how we get down… Read More

Download it now and check them together at Le Belmont in Montreal on Jan 22nd, Ritual Downstairs Lounge in Ottawa on Jan 23rd, and Marquee in Halifax on Jan 24th (where they will be joined by fellow beat kings Keys N Krates). Stay tuned for more music from these two throughout the year, starting with Sleepy Tom’s new single “Pusher” feat Anna Lunoe, out 1/27 on FG.

Brenmar is the club. This bass music chameleon has soundtracked some of the best nights of our lives with sets that expertly travel from Jersey to Chicago and beyond, connecting the dots between hip-hop, R&B and all manner of futuristic house music production. His aptly titled Award EP (out 1/20 on Fool’s Gold) is more than a victory lap for a nightlife champion, but the start of an awesome new chapter, melding songwriting chops atop years of body-moving DJ knowledge. From 808 slow jams to confetti-ready anthems, Award is a four-track collection of earworms featuring voices from the underground (Newark’s Dougie F and UNiiQU3) and radio (Jeremih collaborator Sayyi) alike.
Listen to the title track (premiered today by Paper alongside a Brenmar Q&A) for a taste of the EP, which you can also pre-order now on iTunes. Hear Brenmar live in his element on the Award tour kicking off 1/21 in Chicago and blasting around the globe through February, full dates after the jump.
