Check out A-Trak and Congorock’s continental adventures on FG’s first ever Asian Sensation tour, which hit Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Jakarta, Singapore, Taipei, Bali, Beijing and Shanghai last month. (Savvy listeners will recognize Kid Gloves “Below The Belt” on the soundtrack, along with some other treats…)
There’s very few places where grimy Detroit hip-hop and Japanese grrrl-power riffs can coexist, or record crates where 5am warehouse techno and quirky synth pop stack right behind one another. Yet somehow it all makes sense together once we stamp it with the Fool’s Gold logo. Our latest signings expand the FG umbrella even wider, bringing sensual electro three-piece Cubic Zirconia and drum machine troubadour Party Supplies into the fold. Read More
Head over to Pitchfork to download Breakbot’s remix of Chromeo’s next single, the Solange Knowles-featuring “When The Night Falls.” You can grab it (along with new versions from Lifelike, Hercules and Love Affair and Mayer Hawthorne) on July 26th, and then check the guys on the road throughout North America for the rest of the summer, with Breakbot and Mayer Hawthorne opening selected dates.
This will be THE party of the summer, and to get you in the mood, Nick Catchdubs put together this mix of jams from everyone playing that night, along with teasers of some brand new FG releases and other joints from the label family. Download now and peep the tracklist after the jump.
Glentourage is the new series from our LA shutterbug buddy Glen Han, documenting his adventures around the world with his DJ homies. And where better to kick things off than the Fool’s Gold Rap Party in Miami this spring? Check out all the bro love in full effect, and stay tuned for more episodes soon.
This past Friday we pulled down the window paper, threw open the doors, and let the world see what the FG crew has been working on for months: 536 Metropolitan, our brand spanking new retail store in Brooklyn. We’re open Monday-Saturday from noon until 6pm, happily serving all your Fool’s Gold music, gear and general swag-related needs. Read More
One of my favorite chill out dishes for the summer is Raita, the cucumber and spice spiked yogurt sauce that is omnipresent on Indian and Greek menus the world over. This version is uber basic, although I encourage you freak it out and add things like garlic oil, finely grated carrots, scallions or even raisins. Serve with toasted pita bread, throw on top of a rack of lamb or stir into lentils – this is a very versatile sauce. Read More
Out today on Beatport is “Music Power,” the supercharged sophomore single from UK duo Kid Gloves, aka Freeform Five and the Freelance Hellrasier. By day, they write and produce for some of the best and brightest in UK pop. Once the lights go out, however, it’s club time! Straight to the speakers we go…
Kid Gloves’ Fool’s Gold debut “Bare Knuckle” was a slice of infectious, cut-n-paste disco house that immediately zoomed into Beatport’s Indie Dance / Nu Disco Top 10 for weeks (and rightfully so!) “Music Power” keeps that same energy and funnels it into one funky-ass, rock em sock em robot of a tune, filled with disembodied vocal samples, joy buzzers, and all manner of industrial grooves for the ravers. Dub Police don D1 flips it into an even bigger bass jam, as only he can.
B-side “Below The Belt” is a sonic sibling to “Bare Knuckle” and it’s joyous loops: seven-minutes and twenty-seconds of stretched out dancefloor joy. This summer club must-have comes remixed by Golden Bug (Gomma / Bang Gang) in full on house mode. Lace up your boxing gloves and your dancing shoes, it’s time to party. Read More
