Karmaloop TV just posted up Derick G’s footage from our Rap Party in Miami at The Standard pool. This was a special daytime party we threw two days before our Grand Central blowout, and MAN!!!
If you missed it, you missed out on an all-day B2B DJ bro sesh featuring A-Trak, Craze, Busy P, DJ Mehdi, Brodinski, Nick Catchdubs, Dave Nada, and Mike B playing rap favorites down by the water for all manner of dancing friends and lovely folks. Check the great photo galleries from Kirill Was Here, Glenjamn and Just My Photoblog (digital and 35mm), with some of our favorites after the jump. Read More
Who is Club Cheval? “Nous sommes un collectif, un label, un laboratoire, une écurie. Nous sommes situés entre Lille, Paris et Londres.” This stable of bass wizards has been responsible for some of the funnest, oddest club tracks of the past year or so. The youngest of the crew is Canblaster, who burst on the scene like a synth-wielding Harry Potter with facemelting singles like “Jetpack,” “Clockworks,” and a gleefully warped collection of remixes, like his take on our Style Of Eye and Slagsmålsklubben single “Homeless.”
Combine that discography with his enthusiastic, thoroughly unpredictable approach to DJing, and it’s no wonder that Canblaster has quickly become an extended fam favorite over here at FG. But don’t take our word for it – go float with his brand new Foolcast mix, “Skyscrapers Are The Mountains Of The City,” a hypnotic collection of digital jams new and old.
For this edition of Food Gold, we brought the cameras to Baohaus on Rivington Street for a special behind-the-scenes cook sesh with master chef Eddie Huang and the Ninjasonik bros. Check out their adventures in grilling in the above clip, and peep the full recipe after the jump.

Last night on Real Late with Peter Rosenberg, Danny Brown and Nick Catchdubs repped FG at the home of blazing hip hop and RnB. While Rosenberg spun “Ray Ban Vision (Remix),” “Greatest Rapper Ever” and “Guitar Solo,” Danny dropped knowledge on Tim Hortons, Eightball, and #dannybrownshair, then Catchdini took over the decks for a guest “throwback mix” featuring Cru, Brick City Kids, and more random rap nuggets.
Check Danny Brown performing “Radio Head” (shout out to Samiyam!) live at The Fader’s private “Icon Issue” release party in NYC this past Tuesday. Danny’s featured in the new issue (Biggie cover, pick it up now it at a newsstand near you) and his DJ for the night, Nick Catchdubs, contributed a guest Vinyl Archaeology column to boot. For more from the party, peep Mel D Cole and Dorothy Hong’s photo galleries.
Donnis filmed a quick clip for his Southern Lights mixtape banger “Get Up, Get Out” at the ATL release party, check it out! He also just dropped a remix to blog-n-b favorites The Weeknd’s “Loft Music,” and is headed to Chicago this Friday (4/29) to perform at the Creme De La Creme party at House Of Blues, RSVP here.
For the latest edition of our Foolcast mix series, we’re proud to present the debut of Missile Command, a new DJ team comprised of Neptunes / N*E*R*D mastermind Chad Hugo and longtime DMV partyrocker Hip Hop Dan.
The dynamic duo just got home from soundtracking a weekend of afterparties at Coachella and hopped right back into the booth to put together this Foolcast for us, falling somewhere between a traditional DJ mix – new favorites, remixes, left-field bangers – and a studio broadcast sneak peek. Check the tracklist after the jump, featuring tons of exclusives from the likes of No Planes In Space (another Chad collab, this time with Paul Banks of Interpol), Lupe Fiasco and more.
