Ladies and bros! Run over to your local Best Circuit Nobody Beats The Virgin Megastore this week, head directly to the CD racks, and – lo and behold! – right after Kid Dynamite’s Shorter, Faster, Louder and Kid Rock’s American Bad Ass, it’s Kid Sister’s luscious green Pro Nails – Super High Shine Edition!

In the latest edition of the Grand Theft Auto video game franchise (flying off shelves and decaying the morals of a nation right now!) you can listen to the Bag Raiders remix of KIM’s “By The Time They Reach You” on the François K-helmed “Electro Choc” station. Let their OZ jams soundtrack your nefarious deeds! Here’s a video clip of said track in action. Quoth the Bag Raiders, “Whoever did this, you rock a bunch like gravel…”
We thought the only maple leaf news this week was gonna be A-Trak winning a Justo Award for Best Canadian Mixtape DJ. BUUUT NOOOOO!Jokers of the Scene just hit us with this flyer for their monthly Disorganised party. This Friday’s edition (5/2) features their FG labelmates Nacho Lovers as special DJ guests. Expect lots of exclusives, techno (of the minimal and maximal variety), and songs written by Armand. Did we mention techno? Joy! Read More
As Busy P’s expertly Photoshopped show flyer should have told you, this past weekend of jams at the Coachella festival was a veritable FG family reunion. Brothers! Sisters! French cousins! But we’re back now (sunburnt, caffeinated, blogging) and the fruits of our festival self-Googling are yours after the jump. More added as we find ‘em. Read More
If you’re in NYC tonight (Tues 4/29), head over to Lotus and help celebrate the “Super Sweet 16″ of supreme party-thrower and girl about town Va$htie. Happy born day! Fool’s Gold’s own Kid Cudi will be performing along with supa deejay Cipha Sounds and a bunch of other good folks. Flyer after the jump. Read More
What’s been up with space-age slapatician and Fool’s Gold’s resident East Bay representer Trackademicks? Earlier this month, he dropped the second volume of his Remixtape series, which you can download here while reading track-by-track (hiyo!) commentary from the producer himself over on the Trackademia blog. Want more? Dude’s handiwork is all over the new Lyrics Born album, which dropped this past Tuesday. And guess what! Last week also saw Track (and the Honor Roll crew) rocking with us at the SF stop of the Fool’s Gold x Dim Mak tour, video of which is watchable over here. Yee! Check for Track’s “Enjoy What You Do” single (backed with some big remixes as well as b-side banger “Topsidin”) out on your favorite gold-plated independent record label later this summer.
I was in Boston early this morning on a connecting flight from LA. They lost my bags. Yaahh trick yaahh, Logan Airport! Kid Sis was in Boston a week or two ago having a significantly better time. Check out this behind-the-scenes video of our girl doing radio promo runs and hitting the clurrrrb, courtesy of our friends at Karmaloop.TV
When we went up to Vancouver for the “Screaming Bloody Murder” tour, Paul Devro posted up an mp3 of Sammy Bananas’ “All The Girls,” a fun lil remix built off NERD’s “Everyone Nose,” on the Mad Decent blog. Download it here for some handy digitized summer fun, and check back for new Sammy joints very soon.
The Fool’s Gold fam will be at the Coachella festival this weekend getting sunburnt beyond belief radical tans and playing some music.
