This week the Fool’s Gold international DJ exchange program brings another new star to our shores, as the big beat frenzy of Italy’s Congorock comes to Toronto, Winnipeg, NYC and Los Angeles (the last one is a real doozy, a free show with our boys Rusko and AC Slater also on the bill). Peep all the party dates after the jump.

Vinyl is in production now, and you can get the digital version (with a bonus remix by His Majesty Andre) exclusively at Turntable Lab starting Feb 24th, with all other digi retailers to follow. “BIIIIIG CHOOOON” says us. “THANKS!” says y’all.
