The latest batch of Scion A/V music videos launched today, with Cubic Zirconia’s “Take Me High” leading the charge. Choreography!
“Take Me High” a taste of whats to come on the band’s debut Fool’s Gold LP Follow Your Heart (out September 20th), and shows off the directorial chops of dynamo frontwoman Tiombe Lockheart.

If you’ve been paying attention, you know we’ve been working on something special with G-Technology: TIGHT SPACE, a new streaming series featuring exclusive DJ sets live from 536 Metropolitan, the Fool’s Gold store in Brooklyn.
All you have to do is like the G-Tech Facebook page to watch the show, which kicks off July 20th with Chromeo on the 1s and 2s, then sets from A-Trak and Treasure Fingers on following episodes.
As if the live streams weren’t enough, we’re also giving away a free trip to Brooklyn to see A-Trak play Tight Space on August 3rd. All show details and contest links are on that G-Tech Facebook page, so what are you waiting for? Go get your internet on!
Check out A-Trak and Congorock’s continental adventures on FG’s first ever Asian Sensation tour, which hit Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Jakarta, Singapore, Taipei, Bali, Beijing and Shanghai last month.
