Tomorrow (Friday, 12/2) at our retail store on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn, we’ll be featuring the work of Daniel Albrigo, a NYC-based illustrator and noted tattoo artist, for the second installment of the Fool’s Gold Artist Series, curated by Dust La Rock. The inaugural edition was a fun one, and the follow up should be no different – Daniel will be showing new canvases and prints, we’ll be premiering an exclusive, limited-edition shirt featuring art from the flyer, and there will be complimentary refreshments from our friends at Bushmills from 7-9pm.
Attention moombahtonistas: check the latest edition of T&A Breaks, curated by our dudes Ayres & Tittsworth and featuring cover art by Dust La Rock. It’s a collection of moombahton drum loops, noises and more for DJs and producers. Out now on Beatport and everywhere fine digital music is sold. And for more 110bpm radness, go download Dave Nada’s Foolcast mix from last year (trivia: the first all-moombahton DJ mix ever!)

Who better to write the book on fun than Kid Sister? The Kiss & Tell EP offers four of Kid Sister’s latest jams with a diverse crew of collaborators. “Mickey” is a club workout from DJ innovators Nadastrom (who just helped pilot Skrillex’s sold-out Mothership tour), while “Hide N Seek” pairs Kid Sis with rap absurdist Riff Raff and bass maestros Sinden & 5kin&Bone5. Hip-hop hero Scoop Deville (Snoop, Game, Fat Joe) mans the boards for “Cliq Claq” (as featured in Stella McCartney’s recent runway shows) as well as a brand-new remix of KS mixtape favorite “Gucci Rag Top,” now featuring a guest verse from fellow Fool’s Gold spitter Danny Brown.
Still, it’s Kid Sister’s inimitable personality on and off the mic that brings these team-ups to life with swaggering verses and clever, lipstick-smeared punchlines to spare. Just like the pulpy romance novels that inspired it’s title, Kiss & Tell offers pure pleasure for everyone. Word to the rap game Danielle Steel! Grab it now on iTunes and Beatport (and check KS guesting on the new Flosstradamus EP too!)
To get you in the mood, here’s a free download of “Mickey,” featuring Kid Sis and dem Nadastrom boys at their bounciest.
Chicago DJ heroes Flosstradamus are back with the brand new Jubilation EP, their first official release since 2009′s “Big Bills” with Caroline Polachek of Chairlift. Named after a long-gone 90s nightclub in the city’s south suburbs, Jubilation uses the hyperactive drums and booming sub bass of juke house as a jumping off point for new school dancefloor sounds. Led by the Kid Sister collab “Luuk Out Gurl” (which Chicago Reader praises for “somehow bending footwork’s freakier elements to the rules of a radio-friendly pop song”) and the XXX-rated Danny Brown collab “From The Back,” Jubilation showcases Flosstradamus’ club-ready studio skills, honed by years of constant touring around the globe.
