We brought the whole Fool’s Gold Sound Machine down to Miami for another epic DAY OFF! Rain or shine, it was a litstravaganza for the ages. A-Trak and Mannie Fresh B2B, bringing out 2 Chainz and Juvenile? Flosstradamus preaching turn-up gospel to the South Florida HDYNATION congregation, complete with Travis Porter on some live “Drop Top”? Not to mention Alison Wonderland and Laidback Luke throwing down intense DJ sets, Vic Mensa and Towkio repping SAVEMONEY onstage (and in the crowd), and Denzel Curry, D.R.A.M., Rome Fortune and tons more keeping it sweaty all day long.
Forever we love Atlanta! The 2nd ever ATL DAY OFF was a true celebration of Fool’s Gold fans, family… and hoverboards. Watch our official recap video above to see what happens when the whole city comes out to rock with us! (There’s also a full photo gallery up on the FG FB to enjoy, some of our favorite selections after the jump.)
SWISH! Hoop it up in a reversible mesh FG logo jersey and throwback school gym-style shorts… store.foolsgoldrecs.com has what you need (and so does our retail store at 536 Metropolitan Ave in BK!) Read More
A-Trak is everywhere these days. After selling out his second annual Gold Gone Wild tour, the #RealDJing champion brought Fool’s Gold’s hugely successful Day Off festival franchise across America, merging hip hop heavyweights with electronic music’s elite and capturing the sound of a generation in a way that only he can. As a Grammy-nominated producer, his discography is just as varied: in the past few months alone, he’s taken hip-hop futurism mainstream with “Out The Speakers” (featured in Mountain Dew’s Superbowl commercial and viral ad campaign) while reinventing EDM riffs with cheeky guitar-led single “Ibanez” and churning out ubiquitous remixes for Alesso and the Chainsmokers. But last winter’s solo outing “Push” marked the beginnings of a new signature sound for Trizzy, elevating all that dance world expertise with high-def emotions and mature songwriting.
With his new single “We All Fall Down” (out October 2nd on Fool’s Gold and streaming now) A-Trak follows the muse of “Push” even further into pure pop heaven. Featuring vocals from UK soulman Jamie Lidell, “We All Fall Down” transcends dance music’s genres and trends. It’s a welcome blend of throwback attitude (’80s electro soul, ’90s Chicago house, two-stepping Y2K chart toppers), thoroughly modern production, and earworm melodies that feel timeless from the very first listen. Play it now and check A-Trak premiering the tune as a “World Record” on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show.
