Starting this week, people walking the streets and riding the subways of NYC and Brooklyn have been greeted by the handsome trio of FG founders A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs and Dust La Rock, mugging it up for Bushmills’ new “Since Way Back” ad campaign, also featuring portraits of friends Chromeo, DFA, No Mas, and Kai Regan and co. There’s painted wall-size versions (ours is next to Alife Rivington Club), subway ads, and proper billboards throughout the metro area. Keep us posted with your Twitpics, etc when spotted!
For more, check the Bushmills Facebook page, and see more pics (and video of our photo shoot at Jonathan Mannion’s storied NYC studio) after the jump. Read More
Belvedere sent 13th Witness to Coachella to hang with the FG team for an afternoon, and this cool little clip is the result. A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs break it down for a poolside Q&A (shades of Killa!) then they head over to the Anthem Lagoon, where Donnis rocks “Gone” for the bathing suits. Watch it! (More Lagoon pics here and here)
Last month we hit up Miami for yetanother smash Fool’s Gold Winter Music Conference takeover!
Duck Sauce made their triumphant live DJ debut (which New Times named WMC’s best!), DJ Sneak, Just Blaze and (surprise surprise) Laidback Luke rocked guest sets, and the whole FG DJ family put it down like never before all night at brand-new venue Grand Central in downtown Miami. Check some highlights in our wrap-up clip (once again edited by Lizi Gross) and peep a TON of photo galleries – from GC as well as the Fool’s Gold x Mad Decent “Mad Fools” party later that weekend – after the jump.

Tomorrow night (Thurs 4/15) Trackademicks and the Honor Roll crew will be celebrating the release of Track’s third [Re]mixtape at Pacific Standard Time @ Eve Lounge with guest DJ Mayer Hawthorne (Haircut!) and even more friends. Flyer after the jump, you should be there!
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
