The Fool’s Gold Artist Series in-stores give us a chance to turn our store into a gallery, show off some new work and exclusive items from talent curated by FG art director Dust La Rock, and invite everyone to come and hang.
Following exhibitions from Cody Hudson and JK5, Daniel Albrigo, HAZE and Grotesk (you might have seen the last one pop up on your television), the next takeover of our wall will feature new multimedia work from none other than New York’s infamous Irak crew. You don’t want to miss this one…
Come through to the opening on Friday, May 4th from 7-9pm at the FG store on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn. Artists will be in attendance, refreshments will be served, and limited edition shirts will be available (we’ll have them on the webstore too, act fast). Read More

“Lift Off” is the new single from LA Riots, who just got back from rocking two straight weekends of Coachella. In fact, Riots have been a main stage mainstay from day one, dropping high octane bangers from festival stages and megaclub DJ booths around the globe while remixing everyone from Lady Gaga to Lana Del Rey. On “Lift Off,” all those years of road tested electro know-how are distilled into seven minutes of ecstatic buildups, bodyrocking kickdrums and one monster of a riff.
The tracked comes backed by the equally large “Nuggets Adventure,” a hypnotic house weapon thats going to rattle your skull all summer. It’s time to start a riot… get these tracks now on Beatport, iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold. Read More
