Queens rap collective World’s Fair kick holes in speakers worldwide with their debut album Bastards Of The Party, available now for free download at foolsgoldrecs.com/worldsfair.
The album is a futuristic boom-bap collage from six truly unique crew MCs, seamlessly weaving party-crushing cuts like “B.O.T.P.” and “Get Out” alongside raw-nerve confessionals, late night rollers and straight up BARS. From the anthemic “96 Knicks” to the introspective closer “Blacklisted,” Bastards Of The Party is a self-assured, infinitely listenable mission statement heralding World’s Fair’s arrival as the new New York crew to watch.
Swedish superproducer, ravemeister extraordinaire, and owner of one of the finest haircuts in all of dance music, Carli is back with his second Fool’s Gold smasher, “The Weekender.” Five minutes and six seconds of pure big room ecstasy from the Savage Skull himself, backed by the hands-in-the-air acid workout “Rhythm Doctor.” Both cuts have already been prescribed to festivals worldwide, and now approved for home use by the Fool’s Gold Medical Association. Get it now from Beatport!
