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!”
The video clip is very short (ha!) but you can just read the rest of this MTV News interview with Travis Barker and A-Trak about their new “Travis x A-Trak” live project, which will be warming up in LA with Kid Sister and Rob Roy before coming to Austin with the whole Fool’s Gold crew and more.
Our European Vacation Tour was a smashing success, as evidenced by the highlight reel above (soundtracked by the forthcoming Jokers Of The Scene single “Revolting Joks”). But the onstage action doesn’t end there: Red Bull Music Academy Radio recorded live sets from the last night of the tour in Paris (A-Trak, JOTS, Congorock and Arthur King), and you can listen to them here alongside great photos by Mr Mass.
Scion filmed us a while back at the office, at A-Trak and Dust La Rock’s Grateful Bear signing, and at the afterparty with Trouble & Bass later that night. Their little behind-the-scenes glimpse (taken from Scion Magazine #15) is up now, enjoy.
The latest and greatest in the Fool’s Gold catalog is out today in the form of Donnis’ debut single “Gone,” a smoothed out rap anthem from one of the brightest new talents in the scene. Remixes come courtesy of DJ hero (and FG homie for life) Craze, who drops a Miami/ATL bass-inspired uptempo version, and a moody take by acclaimed beatmaker Nosaj Thing.
