Two giant A-Trak collabs get the vinyl treatment, on snazzy split color clear wax to boot! Grab it now from the Fool’s Gold webstore or our retail HQ on 536 Metropolitan Ave in BK (and if you hate awesome physical products, you can still cop mp3s on iTunes, Beatport ‘n all that).
Trizzy and Dillon Francis’ ATM anthem “Money Makin'” is up first, with the wobble rap banger “Piss Test” featuring Juicy J and Danny Brown on the flipsde (complete with vinyl only acapella!) You need this one in your life, cop now (and after the jump, check some flicks of how it all came together at the vinyl pressing plant at United in Nashville). Read More

Ever since Crookers first burst onto the scene with their uniquely muscular, totally tweaked take on dance music, they have been a fixture in the international scene, whether remixing gigantic pop stars, collaborating with underground heroes as Dr Gonzo, or plain ol’ rocking every festival known to man with a pair of USB sticks and an appetite for destruction. For the new Bowser EP on Fool’s Gold, their first original release as Crookers in almost two years (!!!), the duo returns with a brand-new take on the chunky club cuts that made you fall in love with them in the first place. From the title track’s tear-out techno madness to the stadium buildups of “Trillex” to the atomic hip-house of “Turn The Lights On” (a collab with Philly fast rap master STS), Crookers once again redefine “bangers” in their own image. Go crazy with ’em! Read More
