If you were rocking at our first DAY OFF LA last summer, you would have noticed a bunch of stylish rapping gentlemen wearing Fool’s Gold logo tees in green and orange camo. It was a collab with Peas & Carrots International, and sold out in a matter of days. Everyone asks for more, soooo… we had to do another drop! This time on black tees in honor of the P&C pop up store in NYC on 97 Allen St in LES. Come through today from 5-7pm and you might even catch some Fools in the building… Read More
Our “BLVCK FXXLS” capsule collection with Black Scale from last year was one of the most popular and sought-after collabs in Fool’s Gold history. So it’s only right that we team up with our friends from the Bay once again, with four new versions of the iconic “Illegal” snapback. These will release in limited quantities at noon this Saturday (2/16) at Black Scale’s SF store, the Fool’s Gold store at 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn, and at store.foolsgoldrecs.com. Read More
BK club master Codes has a new release out today on Slow Roast, a high powered, genuinely diverse dancestravaganza called The Get Down. Get it now on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold!
The title track’s big room laser disco madness manages to fit perfectly next to the hip-hop flavored electro of “Let Me Break It” and the trapped out bass-n-breaks of “All The Game.” Throw in collaborations with Smog Records champ Flinch (the supremely ravey “Come Down”) and BK bombshell Carrie Wilds (on the smoothed out closer “Temptation”) and you have one of the most exciting releases of the new year. And if that’s not enough, Codes dropped yet another freebie to get you in the mood, with the extra amped-up “In Your Brain.” Grab it!
Along with his own exceptionally fun original music (both solo and as half of Telephoned and Fifteenth), Sammy Bananas has been cranking out some of the best bootlegs in the biz for over a decade. Whether reanimating R&B throwbacks or twisting present-day pop into uptempo weapons of dance destruction, Mr Bananas just has a knack for the funk! He always wanted to press some of his biggest boots to vinyl, and now thanks to Kickstarter you can help make it happen! Check the link for full details and info on the different fan packages available.
