We threw our 2nd annual CMJ showcase (and one-year anniversary party!) this past Thursday at Webster Hall in NYC. There was much cake, revelry and tunes from the crew, here’s the photo galleries and related linkery:
My personal highlights include Nacho Lovers playing Circle Children’s “Zulu” while giving Armand a pound, Gant-Man’s epic hypeman skills keeping up with Kid Sister’s set, Dave1′s extra dapper suit, and of course being able to rock with practically the whole FG fam (Nachos, JOTS and Trackademicks stuck around all CMJ weekend so we’ve been handling photo shoots and meetings alongside late night ridiculousness and more food than I’ve ever eaten in my life. Call me Nick Fatdubs). Special shout-out to Scion for sponsoring the show and to Kenny and the whole Webster Hall team for making sure our champagne glasses were filled up.
A-Trak and DJ Mehdi traded apartments this fall, which means we get to have one of our favorite families living smack dab in BK for a couple months. To celebrate, Married To The Mob and Roxy are throwing a welcoming party tonight at Sway. Free with RSVP, don’t miss out!
NYC get psyched! Continuing our annual tradition, the whole fam touches down in NYC on Thursday, October 23rd for the FOOL’S GOLD CMJ SHOWCASE AND ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY!
Grab your advance tickets here to check out Kid Sister (debuting tracks off her new album Dream Date), A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Jokers Of The Scene, Trackademicks, Nacho Lovers, Sammy Bananas, and Nick Catchdubs, as well as a special DJ set from Fool’s Gold big bro Dave 1 of Chromeo… and perhaps a special guest or two?!?
Another label sooper team-up goes down in NYC this Friday (10.3) at Le Poisson Rouge, as Fool’s Gold’s own Treasure Fingers DJs alongside Mad Decent representers South Rakkas Crew. Get your advance tickets here, or enter to win tix at (where else?) RCRD LBL.
The cat’s out of the bag, we have a brand new compilation out this October, and it’s free!
Fool’s Gold Remixed is a two-CD behemoth we’re releasing with the good people at Scion Audio/Visual. Disc One features brand-new remixes of Fool’s Gold artists by everyone from Chromeo to Surkin to Jori Hulkkonen, while Disc Two is a “24 Karat Hits” mix by FG co-founder Nick Catchdubs (hi mom) featuring some of our biggest tracks from the past year.
You’ll be able to purchase the remixes from all fine digital retailers starting October 14th, and pick up physical copies for free at various Scion dealerships, parties and sponsored events…including our four-city Fool’s Gold Remixed promo tour, which hits Miami, Atlanta, Philly and Baltimore starting October 21st. The rotating lineup includes Jokers Of The Scene, Treasure Fingers, Trackademicks, Nacho Lovers, Sammy Bananas and Nick Catchdubs, and entry is free with RSVP – check you there! Peep the full CD tracklistings and show info for each city on the tour after the jump. Read More
As you eagerly count down the minutes in your cubicle (or kick back stealing wireless in your shared bohemian “artist” dwelling) waiting for the weekend to begin so you can go all Loverboy on its ass, we figured the least we could do is type up a handy guide to all the Fool’s Gold-related events popping off around the globe over the next few days, so you know exactly where to go and what to do.
