Taking place this week in Melbourne, Australia, the Carbon Festival celebrates “contemporary style, design and culture” with panels and events featuring artists, writers and musicians from around the globe. This year’s guests include our own Dust La Rock (who designed a special cover of Acclaim magazine that ties in to the fest) as well as Nick Catchdubs and Party Supplies, who will be performing at the official launch party alongside Neil Armstrong and more.
Check out this video interview with FG homie Brook Bobbins, a NYC based photographer who’s shot more of our parties than we can even remember, not to mention countless events with the A$AP crew, Action Bronson, Mr Muthafuckin eXquire, Odd Future and more. (He’s been doing music videos, too!) Check out Brook’s photo galleries over at who-shot-ya.com and catch him taking flicks wherever it gets live…
Our own NT89 and Nick Catchdubs are featured remixers (along with Boys Noize representative SCNTST) on “Inner O,” the new single from Dems out now on Beatport. No, not Dem Franchize Boyz (although that would rule) but a rising UK trio you can check out in original, non-remixed form here. Stream Nima and Nick’s remixes below.
Flosstradamus became club kings by breaking new sounds around the world, from their earliest DJ blends to high-energy hybrids like last winter’s Jubilation EP, featuring Danny Brown, Kid Sister and all manner of juked-out 808 madness.
After setting SXSW and WMC on fire with a crazy new live set, them Floss boys are back to reclaim the throne once more with Jubilation 2.0, featuring remixes from Lunice, JWLS and Sich Mang, and the brand new burner “Rollup.” Grab it 5/8 on Fool’s Gold.
Whether you wanna call it WMC, Ultra or Miami Music Week… you know how Fool’s Gold duz it! For the third year running we were back at Grand Central, with the whole fam making you dance. Check out “DJ Canada” rocking alongside Jacques Lu Cont, Just Blaze, Congorock, Treasure Fingers, Style Of Eye, LA Riots, Flosstradamus, Jokers Of The Scene, Nick Catchdubs, Fifteenth and surprise guests Annie Mac and Vega (not to mention the Peachfuzz crew keeping it live upstairs with Craze, DJ Soul and other guests). Musics!
A few weeks ago we ran through Austin for two mega parties during SXSW: a label showcase at the brand new Beauty Ballroom, and a team-up Super Party with Mad Decent and Check Yo Ponytail that took over BB as well as the giant Emo’s East down the street. Suffice it to say… shit got live!
From A$AP (and Sammy Bananas!) stagedives to A-Trak’s big-room scratchery, these were parties none of us will forget. Check out our recap video of both nights above, along with photos from our in-house shutterbug Josh Wehle (as well as a CYP’s full cinema-style featurette on Super Party) after the jump. Read More
Commercials for the new Samsung Galaxy Note have been all over the television as of late. You might have caught one and said to yourself, “did they just shout out Fool’s Gold?” In fact, it was our buddy Grotesk showing off his shirt from the FG artist series as an example of how his design firm Doubleday & Cartwright does biz with technology. Check it out above, and grab the Grotesk shirt in question from our webstore. Read More
