ATL got a heavy dose of EDM when the first annual CounterPoint festival came to town. We put our own spin on it with Fool’s Gold very own stage, featuring A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Oliver and Nick Catchdubs doing their thing while Donnis MCed through the night. Check out the recap vid above and some pics after the jump (more galleries on the CP Facebook and at The Untz). Read More
If you liked chef / raconteur Eddie Huang’s guestappearances on Food Gold, you’ll love his new show for Vice, Fresh Off The Boat. Peep the first episode, featuring guns, rabbits, and more, and stay tuned for more real eats and real talk.
A-Trak and Zinc’s massive, siren-laden raver “Stingray” gets reworked into a proper party starter thanks to dancehall star Natalie Storm. Her seductively catchy vocal turns the tune into “Like The Dancefloor,” a dirty pop anthem out next Tuesday (10/16), featuring brand new remixes from Dismantle, Shadow Child, and JWLS. Pitchfork just premiered the track’s official music video, shot by Charlie & Joe on location at Notting Hill Carnival in London. Light one and check it out!

Fool’s Gold’s resident dance pop duo Telephoned slow down the BPMs for “Last Time,” a swirling end-of-summer jam built on jumprope melodies and Aqua Net synth lines that you’ll be humming well into next year.
Check the video now, and stay tuned for the remix single (out Tuesday, 10/2), where Sammy and Maggie’s new wave funk gets cranked to the max by an expert roster of producers: Krystal Klear drops the song into proper New Jack Swing territory (complete with Seinfeld-ian slap bass!), Amtrac turns up the tempo with his club-ready disco house mix, while Kutcorners provides a closing credits-worthy boogie slow burner. Major Lazer’s buddy JR Blender even shows up to the party with a sweet lover’s rock version of Telephoned’s “The Vow,” serving as a perfect postscript to this must-listen remix collection. Read More
