While Kid Sister was away at the BET Awards (pics on her MySpace) and performing at Glastonbury, we figured it was time to drop this vinyl-only remix EP, featuring brand new versions of “Control” by JFK of MSTRKRFT and our own LA Riots, as well as “Pro Nails” mixes by SMD (aka Simian Mobile Disco) and DJ Gant-Man. You can purchase it at Turntable Lab and fine vinyl emporiums worldwide. But that wasn’t enough! We didn’t want to leave our record player-less friends high and dry, so we decided to give away promo mp3s on our RCRD LBL page, starting with JFK’s “Control.” Grab it here and stay tuned for more!
Dudes! You’ve known since this post that I was about to come out with a record for all your jogging needs. This is essentially my first record — can you feel the excitement in my blogging style today? Anyway it’s out now and you can cop it on iTunes. It’s available all over the world but our North American friends also get a 5 minute “behind the scenes” style video shot in my
studio living room.
We alluded to it back in March, now Pitchfork is officially spilling the beans about Running Man, A-Trak’s take on Nike+’s successful series of original workout jamz from the likes of LCD Soundsystem and other upstanding citizens. Running Man features 45 minutes of original music (and serves as A-Trak’s full-length production debut), Kid Cudi pops up for a guest spot, Dust provides exclusive digital booklet illustrations, and you can cop the whole thing on iTunes on June 24th.
Ladies and bros! Run over to your local Best Circuit Nobody Beats The Virgin Megastore this week, head directly to the CD racks, and – lo and behold! – right after Kid Dynamite’s Shorter, Faster, Louder and Kid Rock’s American Bad Ass, it’s Kid Sister’s luscious green Pro Nails – Super High Shine Edition! This reissue of her hit “Pro Nails” single features new remixes from Bag Raiders and DJ Gant-Man and marks the first Fool’s Gold release available as a retail CD. Hot damn! Super High Shine is also up on iTunes and all other digital retailers for all you cutting edge mp3 types. (What’s the future like, Elroy?)
OK so the 2 sentences in the title aren’t exactly related but they’re both pretty exciting. I haven’t talked much about this record thus far and the powers that be are saying you’ll have to wait a few more weeks to find out exactly what it is. But I can say this: I finished an A-Trak record, it’s longer than an album but it’s not an album… although it is all original production. I can also say I’ve been working on it for weeks and weeks and I can finally breathe! Until my phone rings. Read More
Ladies and gents! Fool’s Gold is proud to announce two new releases, the long-awaited debut singles from Kid Cudi and Jokers of the Scene. Cudi’s hypnotic “Day ‘N’ Nite” comes backed with a thumping JOTS remix along with b-side “Dat New ‘New’” while the Jokers’ own “Y’all Know The Name” features two remixes from Flosstradamus and Nacho Lovers along with their club smash “Juggle It.”
You can grab both from Turntable Lab (and other fine vinyl retailers) as well as iTunes, Juno, and pretty much everywhere else digital music is sold (we’ll update the links as the releases go live – hit us up if your preferred spot doesn’t have it, and we’ll get it figured out).
Our boy Sammy just dropped this mix to help promote his new 12″ on Fool’s Gold (which you can buy on vinyl at Turntable Lab and cop digitally from our Snocap store). It’s pretty damn FRESHHHHHHH, here’s what he had to say about it:
“I made this mix as a companion to “High Top Fades,” my new Fool’s Gold EP. The tracks on the EP are all dancefloor remixes of early 90′s hits, and working on the songs gave me the idea of making a mix themed around selections in the Hip-Pop cannon from this era. In particular, the mix highlights artists who sported the hair style referenced in the title. Its 55 minutes of fly hair and fresh beats to take you back to your 6th grade dance. Or take me back at least…”
Get it now:
Tracklist after the jump.
Big Pun (RIP) may have put it best…YEAAAAHHHHHH BABY!!!

Don’t sleep!You can still cop official mp3s from iTunes and Beatport as well.
