Fool’s Gold Presents: Night Shift

Posted on Mar 8th, 2016

Fool’s Gold redlines into spring with Night Shift, a 17 track compilation, available from all digital retailers on April 1st of new dance music from the label’s latest signings and loudest family members. Since launching in 2007, the beloved Brooklyn indie founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs has pushed hybrid sounds to the forefront of the electronic scene. But Night Shift is the sound of a brand-new model year racing off the FG lot, shinier and heavier than ever.

A-Trak and Ookay’s bass anthem “Only One” races alongside Athletixx’s experimental clubber “PNTHR,” while massive remixes of electro royals Tommy Trash and Alvin Risk ride shotgun with tunes from upstarts KRNE, GEOTHEORY and Madeaux. Rap vocals from Atlanta, house beats from London, synth riffs from planets unknown… Night Shift is an enjoyably motley mix of styles, tempos and attitudes, bound together by a definitive Fool’s Gold aesthetic. Burning rubber never felt so good! Premiered on Pitchfork, listen to “Only One” below and pre-order Night Shift. Tracklist below.

Black Atlass “Tonight” Video

Posted on Feb 29th, 2016

Black Atlass’ slinky, seductive single “Tonight” gets an equally alluring music video from acclaimed fashion photographer Kenneth Cappello. Conjuring a high-gloss world of vintage supermodel shoots, the classic B&W beach video vibes quickly turn hallucinatory, with Black Atlass’ yearning vocals soundtracking a Cronenberg-worthy body party. Even if tarantulas aren’t your turn on (yet), “Tonight” is a must-watch. Stay tuned for more from Black Atlass in the coming months.

Rome Fortune “Jerome Raheem Fortune” Album

Posted on Feb 26th, 2016

In the most cosmic sense of the word, Rome Fortune is Atlanta’s newest star. Green-bearded and crop-topped, 6’5” in cowboy boots, he takes the stage like an eclipse and flips straighforward bars into lunar poetry. But even with such otherworldly swagger, Rome’s music connects with fans because of how powerfully (and sometimes painfully) human it really is.

Jerome Raheem Fortune is the true story of this man who fell to earth. Rome’s Beautiful Pimp mixtapes (“rap as motivational speaking, generous and all-inclusive” – Pitchfork) and collaborations with everyone from turn-up trailblazers OG Maco and ILoveMakonnen to Four Tet and Toro Y Moi were merely the prelude to JRF’s nakedly honest storytelling.

Over loose, dreamlike tracks from longtime collaborator Cubby, Rome gets extra real about his struggles: his parents, his children, and their mothers… his dreams, his demons, and the drugs that may be fueling both. Even Kaytranada produced single “Dance” is an outlier, an uptempo song about escape rather than elation. Yet nothing on Jerome Raheem Fortune is a drag; over the course of 11 potent tracks, Rome Fortune presents hip hop catharsis at its most compelling. Head towards the outer limits of rap with a guide who is intimately familiar. Listen to Jerome Raheem Fortune here.
