Wish a happy born day to our man Sammy Bananas tonight at Savalas in BK, where he’ll be DJing with Caps and probably eating a cake of some sort. Mr Bananas was just over at FG HQ this week playing some new productions, including remixes for Thunderheist and Passion Pit, as well as a new remake from his Telephoned project (which you can preview here) so stay tuned!
Only a few nightspots in the world truly qualify as “superclubs,” and in that subcategory fewer still match up to Pacha. They have the awards to prove it! Real ones they give out in Eebeetha! Basically what we’re saying is that if you’re down for an extra-big night of oontz oontz oontz, they got you – which is why it’s so cool that our dude Treasure Fingers is infiltrating Pacha NYC this Friday (playing alongside Benny Benassi, obviously no stranger to that world…) and entry is free before midnight if you RSVP. Treasure Fingers will be on the decks from 11pm-1am, we’ll catch you there.
As if the Bats Over Europe tour wasn’t notable enough on its own, JOTS are kicking the whole thing off with a joint show co-starring their FG labelmates (and fellow Canadian techno fiends) Nacho Lovers! If you’re anywhere near Ghent get ready to hit the rave cave in t-minus…
Fool’s Gold loves Claw Money and you should too! Check Claw at her first solo show “Spray It, Don’t Say It” tonight from 7-10 pm at Eastern District- 43 Bogart St. Brooklyn, NY 11206 RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org
At the Wale show at LPR in New York City last night, Kid Cudi droped by to say what up – so of course, Mr Folarin’s backing band UCB took the opportunity to coat “Day ‘N’ Nite” with tons of mumbo sauce in their impromptu live go-go version.
Fool’s Gold rave heroes Jokers Of The Scene are going cross-continental this spring for their BATS OVER EUROPE tour, kicking off on May 8th in Ghent and running through the end of June in Barcelona.
The tour marks the proper European debut of the rising Ottawa DJ/production duo, and it couldn’t come at a better time. JOTS’ recent remixes for the likes of Flosstradamus, McLloyd, Acid Girls and Burns have been making waves in forward-thinking DJ sets and blog charts alike, and their signature anthem “Baggy Bottom Boys” continues to resonate in clubs worldwide, so much so that a “BBB” video and remix EP were commissioned by Fool’s Gold to keep the momentum going.
The JOTS sound continues to mutate from straight-up club bangers into a deeper, darker strain of electronic dance music that’s completely original and exciting. Be sure to catch them releasing the bats on tour: debuting new tracks, destroying dancefloors, and exploding minds!
Update: just in time for the tour announcement, Big Stereo posted up a live set from JOTS recent performance at the Infatuation party in SF. Download it here and check the Bats Over Europe tour dates after the jump. Read More
This Friday (5/8) in Brooklyn sees the latest edition of Flashing Lights, a monthly jam courtesy of FG’s own Nick Catchdubs with DJ Ayres, Jubilee and a rotating cast of guests. The May edition is going down in a warehouse on North 3rd St, featuring a set from Lauren Flax and a special live performance by a “secret live band” from our BK neighbors Trouble & Bass. Gonna be crazy – and there will be rave juice served in plastic bags once again! – so RSVP for reduced entry! Get hyped by downloading previous FL promo DJ mixes here.
Skinny and I put together a mix to help spread the word about Player’s Club, our fortnightly party upstairs at Pianos in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. This 30 minute blend of stay fly music gives you a slice of the Player’s Club neatly wrapped in crisp tuxedo packaging. Please accept this token and we hope you will join us one night where we will be rockin’ that sh*t like… Grab the mix here and check the tracklist below.
Tomorrow night (5/1) in Los Angeles Jokers Of The Scene will be playing Control with their pals Acid Girls. It’s a nice lil team-up, especially considering how the forthcoming single for AG’s “Numbers Song” contains the hotly anticipated (and expertly titled) “Jokers Of The Scene Taking Acid To Make Music To Talk To Girls Remix,” preview-able on JOTS Actual Pain mix. Roll through Avalon and check em out!
