About time! Like we do everyspring, the whole fam went down to Austin a few weeks back for SXSW. Our artists had tons of shows and guest sets to hit, but the pieces de resistance were the two FG events: the Texas Takeover at Republic Live, and the official FG SXSW Showcase at Malverde. Strictly best-of-the-best DJs, MCs, and even some new rock-n-rollers. Party! Whistles!
Check the highlight reel above (stitched together by our edit mistress Lizi Gross) and hit the jump for way more pics and video from our Texas tweekend. WMC up next! Read More

Boy do we have a special treat for you this week on Food Gold. Our dear friend (DJ/promoter/pastry chef extraordinaire) Justine D took some time off from her studies at the prestigious French Culinary Institute to join our Food Gold Video Party to teach us how to make some delectable Gruyere Chive Biscuits. We know we have neglected showing love to baked goods on Food Gold before, but we really wanted to wait until the perfect moment to drop that knowledge. Well, that moment has arrived. Y’all ready?!
Ingredients, full recipe and a food porn gallery of some of Justine’s amazing work are after de jump! Read More

As mentioned earlier, A-Trak and Chilly Gonzales teamed up at Joe’s Pub last week. Says A-Trak: “Often times it’s the casual shows, the “oh I’m just doing this on the side for fun” shows that end up being my favorite ones. Maybe it’s because I love to improvise. Or maybe it’s because these are shows I do with my friends, which is fertile ground for creativity. Last year it was my set at the Do Over. This year so far, my favorite performance was this little guest spot I did at Chilly Gonzales’s Piano Talk Show at Joe’s Pub in New York last Thursday. It was barely rehearsed, only 15 minutes in length, and we were both coming in from long flights with little to no sleep. Watch the result, I hope you enjoy it!”
