Who needs cake when you’ve got a pole? Brooklyn’s own Fool’s Gold will toast to nine (!!!) years of new music and unforgettable parties, returning to Club Lust Gentlemen’s Club for another birthday bash not to be missed. (Ask Alexander Wang about last year’s celebration!)
Wu Tang legend and NY rap icon Raekwon headlines alongside electric new Fool’s Gold signing K$ace. The turntables will stay lit all evening thanks to Travis $cott’s DJ OG Chase B, GHE20G0TH1K queen Venus X, and Club Lust’s resident party champ DJ SpinKing. And of course A-Trak and the FG family will be hosting all night long.
Get your tickets now and we’ll see you Saturday, 11/12 at Club Lust in Brooklyn. Keep your ATM card handy…
Tommy Trash and TAISUN have enlisted a murderers’ row of remixers for their new single “IOUE.” LO’99 strikes first with heavy duty, jackin’ robot vibes — play it loud and stay tuned for more “IOUE” remixes from GLD, Infuze, QUIX, Dual Color and Stefan Engblom out this Friday (10/28) on Fool’s Gold!
Laval, Quebec’s own prince of bass High Klassified returns to his Kronostasis EP (SOCAN’s Best Electronic Release of 2016) to create a wonderfully surreal video for “Gold” featuring Mick Jenkins. However, the beloved Chicago MC is nowhere to be found in director Rachid Allaoua’s dreamlike clip; instead, High Klassified stars in an engrossingly strange love story, soundtracked by Mick’s heartfelt vocals (“I got gold all in my skin / water in my eyes”) and HK’s futuristic thump.
Brooklyn producer Nick Hook teams up with ATL mystery man 24hrs for the slinky “Gucci’s,” taken from Nick’s Relationships album, out 11/1. True to the LP’s collaborative spirit, “Gucci’s” is unexpectedly catchy and greater than the sum of its parts; alien vocal processing meets trunk decimating bass, resulting in what may become the first improvised analog synth jam to make Magic City rotation.
SLUGGERS flip Sunshine State vibes like a photonegative, crafting some of this year’s deepest, dankest dance records in the process. Their hit Fool’s Gold Clubhouse single “Courtesy / HYPR” earned them support from big dogs like A-Trak, Diplo and Skrillex and standout slots at Ultra, EDC and other global dance festivals. But Anthem (out 10/28) is the anonymous crew’s heaviest mission statement to date, a five-track love letter to bass in all its forms. From the skull-rattling title track to the sinister, droning vibes of “Doses,” MIA nightlife has never sounded so wonderfully dark. After teasing the release’s title track, SLUGGERS drop “So Much Love” along with the Anthem EP pre-order here.
Just when you thought exploding batteries were the worst thing to happen to your cell phone, meet the homicidal operating system of Tommy Trash & TAISUN’s “IOUE” video. Director Edward John Drake provides the ideal faux TV commercial setting (complete with breakdancers!) to conjure a neon nightmare that pairs perfectly with Tommy and TAISUN’s distorted dance hit. Play it loud and keep an eye out for Tommy’s upcoming Group Chat EP, featuring collaborations with fellow Fool’s Gold label mates created during the “Gold Gone Wild” tour.
As the dizzying music video for A-Trak and Tommy Trash’s “Lose My Mind” becomes a Vine and GIF phenomenon, the DJ duo strike back with four new spins on their loopy collab, courtesy of some of the coolest new talents in dance music. OWSLA queen Mija goes sampladelic, D.O.D blasts off with his “future jack” energy and Meaux Green and SAM F turn up and trap out, while French funky vibe-master Jean Tonique straps on his roller skates and adds original talkbox verses. Mental!
Brooklyn producer Infuze specializes in a melodic and musical approach to bass music. We’re psyched to follow up his “re-roll” of Flosstradamus & Baauer’s “Roll Up” with brand new original “Alive,” featuring the talented new singer, Brave.
