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

Two independent record labels, united under a groove…
Last month we teamed up with our friends from Stones Throw, laced up our dancing shoes and hit the road for the DISCOTHEQUE extravaganza! Four nights of “disco, boogie and house music” (as the hand-drawn flyer advertised) from Peanut Butter Wolf, A-Trak, J-Rocc and Nacho Lovers, along with special guests Mayer Hawthorne, Treasure Fingers and Holy Ghost!
All kind of photos after the jump, but before you dig in, go download our latest Foolcast, featuring Peanut Butter Wolf’s live set from the Chicago show. Shout outs and basslines galore!

Starting this week, people walking the streets and riding the subways of NYC and Brooklyn have been greeted by the handsome trio of FG founders A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs and Dust La Rock, mugging it up for Bushmills’ new “Since Way Back” ad campaign, also featuring portraits of friends Chromeo, DFA, No Mas, and Kai Regan and co. There’s painted wall-size versions (ours is next to Alife Rivington Club), subway ads, and proper billboards throughout the metro area. Keep us posted with your Twitpics, etc when spotted!

Duck Sauce made their triumphant live DJ debut (which New Times named WMC’s best!), DJ Sneak, Just Blaze and (surprise surprise) Laidback Luke rocked guest sets, and the whole FG DJ family put it down like never before all night at brand-new venue Grand Central in downtown Miami. Check some highlights in our wrap-up clip (once again edited by Lizi Gross) and peep a TON of photo galleries – from GC as well as the Fool’s Gold x Mad Decent “Mad Fools” party later that weekend – after the jump.
