Following up their ecstatic, cowbell-fuled version of The Strokes’ “Take It Or Leave It,” our girls The Suzan are back with another cover. This time, they tap into a different frequency all together for a moody, Krautrock-y version of Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak standout “Paranoid.” Download from The Fader!
Check The Suzan live in NYC this week for CMJ shows with Nicky Digital (Wednesday @ Ella) and Saturday at the FG 3-Year Anniversary @ Brooklyn Bowl, all in advance of their Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat album release on 10/25. More Suzan announcements soon…
Check A-Trak and a bunch of our buds in LA next weekend for Hard Haunted Mansion. Busy P & Brodinski are among said buds, and they also happened to put together a promo mix for the party (featuring Duke Dumont’s awesome “Thudding Like Elmer” remix of LA Riots’ “The Drop,” out now on FG) that you should download immediately.
Come celebrate three years of Fool’s Gold next weekend as we close out the Pitchfork #Offline festival at Brooklyn Bowl with an evening of anniversary revelry starring our friends and fam new and old: A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Donnis, CyHi Da Prynce, The Suzan, Kingdom and even Araabmuzik on the MPC. Not to be missed!
It all goes down on Saturday, October 23rd – just in time for the release of the compilation album and The Suzan’s Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat two days later – and all info on tickets (just $10!) and the rest of the fest can be found on the #Offline website.
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!
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.
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.
This week our friend (freund!) Malente returns to North America as part of the Scion Radio tour, along with Douster, Blu Jemz and Franki Chan. RSVP here for shows in Tampa, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and Cleveland.
Just because we love you, here’s a free download of the Douster remix of Kid Sister’s “Daydreaming.” And if you still haven’t picked up Malente’s FG disco hit “I Like It”, what are you waiting for?
JOTS are featured in the latest issue of French mag Be Street, and you can check them in Paris tonight (10/8) playing the release party at Noveau Casino. Party details on Facebook, mag scans after the jump. Read More
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.
This Saturday (10/9) check the last date of Kid Sister’s “Kiss Kiss Kiss” European tour, a Fool’s Gold uber-blowout at the Booty Call crew’s “Shake And Pop” party in Paris. This soiree is guaranteed to live up to its name, seeing as Kid Sis will be joined by Congorock and DJ Gant-Man, no strangers to perpetually shaking hindquarters themselves. All the info’s on Facebook, and some presale tix are still available. Don’t miss it!
