Danny Brown kicked off his Old Danny Brown Tour this past week with a string of sold out shows, so it’s only right that MTV gets in on the action by kicking their Artist To Watch campaign into high gear for the Bruiser! Watch this interview vid and live performance from Austin, and stay tuned for MTV’s world premier of the “25 Bucks” video featuring Purity Ring later this week. (And for even more DB, grab Old on vinyl now in 2xLP and deluxe 4xLP box set versions!)

DJs and collectors worldwide have been clamoring for a sequel to our first Serato pressing, and it’s finally here in the form of Pyrite Breaks! Pre-order now from the FG webstore to be sure to get yours when it drops on 4/15.
Inspired by the anarchic spirit and dirtbag aesthetic of classic DJ battle records and turntable weapons, Pyrite Breaks includes two 12″s of rare and unreleased instrumental loops, scratch noises, and acapella samples from the Fool’s Gold vaults, with the Serato control tone pressed on the flipside. It’s topped off with gloriously insane picture disc illustrations by cult artist Lamour Supreme, all packaged in a clear slipcase along with a pair of black FG logo slipmats. (We’ve also got an appropriately grimey baseball tee featuring the Pyrite Breaks artwork.) This limited edition pressing of 2,000 copies won’t stick around for long, pre-order yours now and get to scratchin! Read More
