ATL got a heavy dose of EDM when the first annual CounterPoint festival came to town. We put our own spin on it with Fool’s Gold very own stage, featuring A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Oliver and Nick Catchdubs doing their thing while Donnis MCed through the night. Check out the recap vid above and some pics after the jump (more galleries on the CP Facebook and at The Untz). Read More
To celebrate Ghostface’s legendary performance at the Fool’s Gold 5 Year Anniversary this Saturday (BTW: HE MURKED IT!!!) we printed a limited run of collab FG x GFK tees featuring Mr Goldbar in full Tony Starks robe with the Wonder Woman arm, and a “Mighty Healthy” inspired line on the flipside. Regal purple and gold on a crispy white tee, pick this up now at the Fool’s Gold webstore (and our retail headquarters on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn). Read More
The soundtrack for RZA’s directorial debut The Man With The Iron Fists is an appropriately star-studded affair, featuring a gang of rap icons including our own Danny Brown, who closes out the epic “Tick, Tock” as only he can. Check it out and get the soundtrack (in various deluxe digital and physical formats) right here.
A-Trak and Zinc enlisted dancehall vixen Natalie Storm to liven up their already-massive cut “Stingray” and the awesome “Like The Dancefloor” was the result. Watch the official music video (live from Notting Hill Carnival in London) and grab the new single – a joint release between Fool’s Gold and Rinse – out today on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold. It comes backed with mega remixes from Shadow Child, Dismantle and JWLS. Drop it down and cop dat! Read More
Tomorrow night (10/17) check FG’s own Nick Catchdubs, Slow Roast commando Codes, and our extended fam JWLS, Mr MFN Exquire, Jim-E Stack, Baauer, Kilo Kish and Samo Sound Boy at the AM Only CMJ Showcase at Drom on Avenue A in NYC. It’s a big one!
Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth has been setting the internets on fire like none other with his unique, emo take on trunk rattling beats. He’s a been a favorite of FG for a minute (we just enlisted him to remix Bruiser Brigade!) so we’re proud to present this mix of some of his biggest bootlegs, where he reworks rap favorites from Top 40 mainstays and underground kingz alike, turning them into woozy digital bangers in his signature, lushly chopped-up style.
Subscribe to the Foolcast via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader at the main Foolcast page, where you can also download the mix directly (right click and save-as). And if you prefer these remixes as individual mp3s, snag em here.
Ryan will be dropping a DJ set at the Fool’s Gold Five Year Anniversary Party this Saturday at Music Hall Of Williamsburg. It’s free all night, come thru at 9pm and check the man in action alongside Ghostface Killah, A-Trak, Flosstradamus and more.
You know why the drop says “Cardo on the beat”? BECAUSE CARDO IS REALLY ON THESE BEATS FOOL! The tireless funkster has been in the studio night and day, whipping up cuts like this new one for King Chip, complete with baby noises woven throughout. Check it! Cardo’s instrumental EP Everything I$ Gold is out now on Fool’s Gold, and you can also get wavy to a two-hour Foolcast mix of his productions for other artists.
