Posted on Jul 6th, 2011

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

Food Gold: Know Your Raita

Posted on Jun 28th, 2011

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

Kid Gloves "Music Power" Out Today

Posted on Jun 28th, 2011

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
