Hot on the heels of their cheeky mash “138 Shakedown”, KLAM have decided to share another exclusive DJ special with the FG blog fam. This time they took the Prodigy’s classic “Charly” and got a little Daft with it. Download!
KLAM “Harder Faster Charly” [mp3]
Check KLAM making a rare London appearance at the Bangface 7th birthday party later this month, as well as joining BBC radio don Zane Lowe on the UK DJ Hero 2 tour later this month. Full details on their MySpace.
And in case you forgot… KLAM’s “Funky 4″ single is out now on FG!

Speaker-shredding rock duo Sleigh Bells and dancefloor futurist Kingdom might not seem like the most natural pairing in the world. Yet once again, our regal friend defies expectations in the most excellent of ways with his new, chopped up remix of SB’s “Tell Em,” which RCRD LBL dropped as an exclusive today. Float with the bass…
If you need more Kingdom in your life (and frankly, who doesn’t?) grab his That Mystic EP which just saw vinyl release, and check for upcoming shows on his blog including a Halloween edition of the Club Infinity party in NYC.

Flashing Lights, the monthly dance party thrown by FG’s Nick Catchdubs, DJ Ayres and Jubilee, turns two this Friday (10/8) at Public Assembly in Brooklyn. FL has hosted many Fool’s Gold guests over the past two years, and this one is no exception: Nacho Lovers will be crossing the border to house up the birthday vibes, joined by fellow Torontonian Grahmzilla, who will be tag-teaming with Jubilee as part of their group, Bassanovva. The two have put together a mix of originals, remixes and other fresh tracks to get you excited for the party, including the Nacho Lovers remix of forthcoming Bassanovva single “Terrordactyl” on Sinden’s Grizzly imprint. It’s a family affair!
For more music, check all the old Flashing Lights mixes on Soundcloud.

As you saw in the video for “Barbra Streisand,” our inaugural Day Off party on Labor Day in NYC was beyond crazy. Guest raps from Yelawolf, Pill and Donnis, DJ sets from The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak & Dave1), Just Blaze, the Slow Roast crew (Craze, Klever & Kill The Noise) and Nick Catchdubs, and a live performance by The Suzan…the whole fam put it down!
Check this recap video by Yours Truly to share all the Day Off vibes, from beats to burgers to Mr Goldbar busting out his finest dance moves (they also got full songs from Yelawolf, The Suzan and Donnis). There were a bunch of other photographers and party professionals there to capture us at our best: check these shots from Mel Cole / Village Slum (here and here), Metromix, Kirill Was Here, Nicky Digital, Hi Fi Cartel, LTD Mag, Bongo Boy (with a Yelawolf interview too), iNime, Mr Mort’s favorite crowd looks, a bunch of YouTubes from br0nxr0yaltii, Slow Roast-ed footage from Tim Nolan, OkayPlayer vid and some pics and video from Dante Ross. If you’ve got more shots or footage, leave them in the comments!
Thanks to the crew at City Winery and all our production / promotion partners Scion, Jelly NYC, The FADER, LTD+, and Bushmills, all the FG soopa interns, and a giant Mr Goldbar bear hug to FG homegirl Dnyce for all her help behind the scenes. We’ll be back with more parties very soon! After the jump, some of our favorite Day Off moments. Read More
