Jubilation is the name of a long gone nightclub in the south suburbs outside Chicago that gave teenage partygoers their first taste of the ’90s ghetto house tracks that would soon morph into juke and footwork. So its more than appropriate that Flosstradamus take that title for their brand new EP, where the DJ duo of J2K (Josh Young) and Autobot (Curt Cameruci) use the hyperactive drums and booming sub bass sonics of juke as a jumping off point for new school dancefloor sounds of their very own.
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 is a true showcase for Flosstradamus’ club-honed studio skills and willingness to experiment.
The remixes are in for Duck Sauce’s “Big Bad Wolf” and they are appropriately beastly! You can grab new versions of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden’s club monster courtesy of Dada Life and Toddla T on Beatport today (not to mention the still jamming original + Gesaffelstein versions). But it doesn’t star As a special treat, here’s a moombahton-ized take from our homies Craze and Codes, go “like” the Duck Sauce Facebook to download.
WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! We celebrated four years of label-dom last month with NORE, A-Trak, Danny Brown, Action Bronson, Party Supplies, Mr Muthafuckin Exquire (with Plain Pat on the wheels), Chase N Cashe, Cubic Zirconia, Nick Catchdubs, LUMIDEE (?!?), DJ Ayres, Jim E-Stack, Michna, and all of y’all who packed two floors of the Tribeca Grand. Peep the sweaty madness in the recap vid – including Just Blaze on cameraman duties! – and check photos after the jump. Read More
Head over to the Good Peoples site to grab Nick Hook’s latest mix, High On Coffee On A Plane. It’s an appropriate title on a number of levels, as the Cubic Zirconia keyboard master is currently overseas rocking the Red Bull Music Academy. Check out his playlist of antisocial teenage YouTubes for the RBMA site, check him DJing with Modselektor tomorrow night in Madrid, and keep an eye out for CZ’s “Take Me High” single (complete with massive Bart B More remix) out this coming Tuesday (11/22).
Peep the latest and greatest edition of Trizzy’s satellite radio show, featuring new Fool’s Gold (that Bart B More Cubic Zirconia…woah! Out 11/22), his new Laidback Luke / Sander Van Doorn remix and many more new jams. Tracklist after the jump.
This summer we opened our flagship Brooklyn retail store as a home for everything Fool’s Gold: all of our music, gear, and rare items in one place. We threwsomeparties, a ton of friends and fans came through… but why should BK have all the fun?
Today we’re proud to announce the launch of store.foolsgoldrecs.com, a brand-new web version of our physical store. Hooray internets! Customers from around the world can now get their hands on new music and merch as soon as it’s out, including limited-edition collaborations like our Members Only jacket and AIAIAI headphones.
To celebrate the launch of the site (along with our ongoing four year label anniversary) we’re premiering 4 Deep, a special Serato pressing featuring four previously unreleased remixes from the label vaults spread over two slabs of psychedelic 12″ colored vinyl. The collection features Tony Senghore’s insane take on rap eccentric Lil B’s “Freeze,” the sought after half-time mix of Kingdom’s “Mind Reader” featuring Shyvonne, an exclusive club mix of Cubic Zirconia’s afterhours jam “Night Or Day” and Amen Brother’s 808s & breaks take on DJ Gant-Man’s “Juke Dat Girl.” Vinyl audio tracks on one side and Serato control tones on the flip, packaged with Fool’s Gold logo turntable slipmats.
Limited to 2,000 pairs worldwide, 4 Deep is available for exclusive preorder on the FG webstore and will release around the world on Black Friday, 11/25. So what are you waiting for? Go shopping!
