Every single piece of Fool’s Gold artwork – each individual record sleeve, flyer, logo, shirt, etc – has sprung direct from the mind of our inimitable art director Dust La Rock. He’s a connoisseur! So it’s no surprise that Dust’s unique sense of taste extends beyond his own work to that of his friends and peers. Knowing that, we put together the Fool’s Gold Artist Series – a collection of limited-edition projects curated by Dust, featuring newly commissioned graphics by some of his own personal favorites.
The series launches with t-shirts and prints by Chicago’s Cody Hudson and BK’s own JK5. Come through this Thursday (8/4) as we host a special artists reception at the FG store, 536 Metropolitan, from 7-9pm. And check the guys sporting their respective tees after the jump. Read More
Last week we had Dave1 playing at the store for Tight Space, our new live streaming show with G-Technology, featuring exclusive DJ sets from the FG fam. Check out what went down – as well as a new Q&A with Dave and Tight Space host Elliot Aronow – and go “like” the G-Tech Facebook page for details on the next episode, airing this Wednesday (8/3) with a special guest set from A-Trak.
You already know how psyched we are about the Fool’s Gold store, 536 Metropolitan. Why wouldn’t we be? It’s a one-stop shop for all things FG, from records to gear to collaborations.
Speaking of collabs, this fall we’re launching a line of custom Fool’s Gold headphones with the Copenhagen-based AiAiAi, based on their acclaimed TMA-1. In the meantime, we’re stocking the standard-issue TMA’s at the store, along with their earbud cousins, the AiAiAi “Pipes.” 536 Metropolitan is the exclusive Brooklyn retailer for these, so come down and pick up a pair.

Our Australian homies Bag Raiders (the Big Fun-lovers themselves) are back stateside, touring all over the place opening for Ellie Goulding, with a smattering of solo gigs in between (like tonight, at Tammany Hall in NYC). Check out all the tour dates here, and download a new remix of “It’s Not Over” by fellow friend-of-FG Eli Escobar.
“We put so much time and energy in planning remixes and making the artwork look good, the store needed to have the same vibe.”
Billboard talked to Nick Catchdubs about the FG retail store 536 Metropolitan, check it out here. And then come check us at the store, open Monday thru Saturday from noon until 6pm on Metropolitan Ave (between Union and Lorimer) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Kingdom’s rightfullyanticipatednewsingle “Take Me” (featuring Naomi Allen of Electrik Red) is out today on FG. Summer jam! But don’t take our word for it, listen for yourself:
You can grab “Take Me” exclusively at Beatport for two weeks, with all other digital services to follow. Single contains the main, instrumental and accapella versions, along with the dreamily crunked-out b-side “If You Buck.”
