Hey all, Dust La Rock’s the name, and of course, drawing shit is my game. Not sure why it took me so long to get my post on, maybe because Nick is a loveable yet intimidating blog Nazi. I probably won’t be hitting you w/ the latest Fool’s Gold release/rmx/re-something news, more like random acts of art as they relate to our wonderful record label, various mind-numbing exploits, and the occasional comic relief. So, to set it off right in the new year let me toot my own horn. Format Mag is an online lifestyle mag dealing w/ art, music, etc. Earlier this year Format did a feature on me and recently asked for my Top 10 album picks of 2007. Ch-ch-check ‘em out!
2008 is nigh, and what better way to ring that bitch in than with your Fool’s Gold famalam? In Los Angeles, A-Trak will be rocking alongside Justice, 2 Live Crew, Busy P and more at the first annual Hard NYE fest. In San Francisco, Nick Catchdubs and Diplo get it in real heavy at Temple. In Montreal, Jokers of the Scene rave out with Curses!, Guns N Bombs, Crystal Castles and more at SAT. Keeping it Canadian, our Toronto friends can go enjoy the deejay stylings of Flosstradamus and pop champagne like they won a championship game at the Social. Aud lang syne! Flyers after the jump.

Fool’s Gold bros (literally!) Chromeo just uploaded some accapellas from their Fancy Footwork LP for your remixmash enjoyment: “Call Me Up,” “Fancy Footwork” and “Momma’s Boy.” Download and get to work! While you’re at it, be sure to leave them some messages on their newly-restored MySpace to let Dave and P know you’re psyched their social networking page was rescued from an internet black hole.
We were first supposed to go to Nigeria exactly one year ago for some Kanye dates but it was canceled because Jay-Z and Beyonce had just gone and they found it dangerous. So when I found out we were going this year I was like “oh great”…. but then I thought: we’re only going for 2 or 3 days and we probably won’t see anything else than the plane, the hotel and the venue so heck, this won’t feel any different than El Paso, Texas. I wasn’t shook anymore. Then as we got closer, they told us we had to get shots against hepatitis A and thyphoid and start taking malaria pills. “How victorian!” said my girlfriend. The band was flying out on the 12th but I had booked this 10.Deep x Fool’s Gold holiday party in New York on that date. Can’t I fly out on the 13th? Isn’t the first show on the 14th? “You can fly with Kanye on the private jet,” they tell me. Alright, if you insist. Read More
Kid Sister was at Chicago’s B96 this week to film a “Be Seen and Be Heard” segment with their on-air hostess Roxanne about growing up in the South Suburbs, how Kanye got on “Pro Nails,” and much more.
