Our boy Sammy just dropped this mix to help promote his new 12″ on Fool’s Gold (which you can buy on vinyl at Turntable Lab and cop digitally from our Snocap store). It’s pretty damn FRESHHHHHHH, here’s what he had to say about it:
“I made this mix as a companion to “High Top Fades,” my new Fool’s Gold EP. The tracks on the EP are all dancefloor remixes of early 90′s hits, and working on the songs gave me the idea of making a mix themed around selections in the Hip-Pop cannon from this era. In particular, the mix highlights artists who sported the hair style referenced in the title. Its 55 minutes of fly hair and fresh beats to take you back to your 6th grade dance. Or take me back at least…”
Fool’s Gold design supremo (and nature enthusiast) Dust La Rock just relaunched his website with updated portfolio and such. Get a sneak peek of some upcoming FG designs – as well as dude’s many many other fine art projects (like the spacey stuff he draw-ed up for Manik skateboards in Seattle, some of which you can still pick up at the Lab) over at dustlarock.com.

After a non-stop summer of boombox detonations and stadium invasions, the entire Fool’s Gold roster gets extra-shiny for their Fall tour of the US and Canada. It’s everything you’d want from a night at the club: new-school rap princess Kid Sister, tag team DJ sets from the world-renowned A-Trak and his brother from another DJ Mehdi (Ed Banger), electro madness from Daft Punk’s favorite DJ, Kavinsky, the Cool Kids‘ back-to-the-future boom, and brand-new jams from Nick Catchdubs, along with surprise guest appearances along the way.
DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs founded Fool’s Gold earlier this year, bringing together the hip-hop and electronic music they play in their sets through official releases like Kid Sister’s debut single “Control” and A-Trak’s Dirty South Dance remixes (in stores now). “This DJ scene that we’re a part of in North America has influenced music scenes across the world, but ironically there aren’t enough labels that represent it,” says A-Trak. “That’s where Fool’s Gold comes in.”
Dim Mak Collection will be producing limited-edition tees for the tour, featuring original artwork by Fool’s Gold in-house graphic designer Dust La Rock. The label will use their tour momentum to launch a slew of releases for the rest of the year, including new singles from Cool Kids, Kid Sister, Kavinsky and new signing Kid Cudi, an EP of ’90s dance re-edits by Sammy Bananas called High Top Fades, international bass rattlers from Jokers of the Scene (Ottawa) and Bag Raiders (Sydney), and more.
Following these North American dates, A-Trak and Mehdi embark on a two-week European jaunt that the bass bros have dubbed “The DJ Mehdi & A-Trak Spectacular Review.” A-Trak’s also been shaking dancefloors on his own, with thumping official remixes for Digitalism (Kitsune), Bumblebeez (Modular), Architecture in Helsinki (Polyvinyl) and Roc-A-Fella’s own Kanye West.
