Last year’s maiden voyage of HARD’s Holy Ship! was a floating rave for the history books. So it’s only right that FG returned for the sequel (note the two exclamation points) and take Holy Ship!! over pirate-style once again. A-Trak, Oliver, Tommy Trash, Crookers, Dillon Francis, Baauer, RL Grime, Brodinski and even more of your favorite DJs got in on the action, check Josh Wehle’s recap video to see just how wavy it got. And for more aquatic action, peep Rukes’ photo galleries from days one, two and three.
The hotly-anticipated Coachella 2013 lineup dropped last night, with Danny Brown, Tommy Trash and Dillon Francis in the mix of performers, not to mention Baauer, Action Bronson, El-P and a gang of other folks who have never had music released on our record label (though Stone Roses do have a song called “Fool’s Gold” you might have heard of.) See you in the desert.
Check out A-Trak scratching (on Fool’s Gold Serato vinyl, no less!) alongside Clark Kent and AraabMUZIK, as they back up A$AP Rocky on his Late Night With David Lettermanperformance this past Tuesday. Read More
On December 19th, we celebrated the holiday season once again with our friends at LTD+ and a gang of New York City’s finest party people. Danny Brown and GrandeMarshall brought the raps, DJ Mustard (on the beat hoe!), Just Blaze and Nick Catchdubs held it down on the 1s and 2s, the whole A$AP Mob was in effect, and it was another festive notch in the FG events belt. Watch the recap vid above and check out some flicks from Brook Bobbins after the jump (full gallery here). Read More
Our buddy Dillon Francis is hitting FG’s hometown this weekend for two big shows at Webster Hall. Saturday 1/19 with GTA (19+), and Sunday 1/20 with Gent & Jawns and Anamanaguchi (16+). Cop your advance tix and come party! Get in the mood with Dil’s A-Trak collab “Money Makin,” available in original and remixed form everywhere fine digital music is sold, as well as on snazzy split color vinyl from the FG webstore.
Last fall, A-Trak, Flosstradamus and Donnis hit the road for our first ever Fool’s Gold House Party Tour. Check out Noisey’s recapvideos (and peep thesephotogalleries from our bud Kirill Was Here) to see all the madness that went down in basements, frats, and bowling alleys across America. Read More
Late last night, Just Blaze took to Soundcloud in a celebratory mood (happy birthday!) to debut a dance track he’s been playing at our parties: a nice bit of UNTZ built around the indelible piano riff from his “Exhibit A” beat for Jay Electronica. It’s not on his forthcoming Fool’s Gold EP, but a teaser of what to expect from it… and one of many moods you can expect Just to get into while on tour with Baauer this month and next, as they shake bodies and melt faces across North America. Tour dates after the jump.
Check this recap vid to see what went down at Basel Castle this past December during Miami’s Art Basel. Alongside performances from Trinidad Jame$, Purity Ring, Twin Shadown and others, we had our own FG stage with Chromeo’s Dave 1, Oliver, Nick Catchdubs and surprise guest LA Riots on the decks and Donnis MCing (bringing out Reese and the Two9 crew for even more ATL vibes).
