Okay, everybody meet Mr. Me2. Josh Young of Flosstradamus just dropped his first solo mixtape as Me2, and is back again with a playlist of heaters for you! Follow his Guestlist on FG’s Spotify, and download “Steal This Mixtape” for free.
London producer TroyBoi flipped the beat world upside down with awesomely wonky original tracks, collabs with Flosstradamus and Diplo, and official remixes that have blasted pop royalty from Missy Elliot to Zayn into outer space. Fool’s Gold’s own Leaf is the latest artist to get the TroyBoi treatment; bump his chopped up, slow-n-low take on “Money” now, and check Leaf live at Fool’s Gold DAY OFF in New York 8/20.
Miami nightlife fixture Damaged Goods makes his Fool’s Gold debut with the ultra-catchy house cut “Where Do You Go?” featuring Jesse Boykins III. DG’s official remixes for A-Trak, Chromeo, Grandtheft (Mad Decent) and more have kept him in DJ rotation around the world, but this original track takes the vibes to another level. Vintage after-midnight synth riffs and haunting vocals meet up somewhere between South Beach and Paisley Park, making “Where Do You Go?” a summer playlist must-add. Download it here.
Brooklyn’s own Fool’s Gold Records takes their annual DAY OFF extravaganza cross country once again, closing out this year’s series of festival events with an all-day party on Sunday, September 25th at Shrine LA Outdoors.
Mac Miller headlines his first Los Angeles show of the year alongside G.O.O.D. Music president (and Clipse legend) Pusha T and FG’s own A-Trak, who’s hitting the decks with an “…and friends” guestlist that always amazes. DAY OFF LA will also feature upstart ATL phenom MADEINTYO, Fool’s Gold’s buzzy young R&B star Black Atlass, and the label’s resident DJ killers Madeaux, Kittens and Nick Catchdubs. And of course, you know it wouldn’t be a DAY OFF without a gang of surprises on deck…
This LA event caps a massive summer of DAY OFF shows for Fool’s Gold, including a New York event at the 34th St Helipad on 8/20 headlined by Migos and Juelz Santana, and a Miami blowout at Soho Studios on 9/17 with Joey Bada$$ and Hudson Mohawke topping a full day of performances from FG signees and some of the world’s most exciting new DJs and MCs. Advance tickets for all three DAY OFF events are available now at fgdayoff.com.
Check out last year’s recap here & more flyers after the jump:
Black Atlass teams up once again with fashion photographer Kenneth Cappello for the stark and bewitching “Blonde” music video. As BA croons (“Your lips take me to California…”) over his own minimal, hypnotic piano loops, lingering shots of Los Angeles at sunset build to a fiery climax. “Blonde” immortalizes the pull of this city’s dark side so powerfully—it’s unclear who is seducing who, but we’ll let the love burn either way.
Haunted Paradise, Black Atlass’ debut album on Fool’s Gold, promises even more snapshots of attraction and temptation. Pre-order the LP now on iTunes (out 8/9).
“Screw the fame as long as my cars is wet / my garments pressed, my weed is green, the bond is kept…” Spend a day in North Philadelphia with GrandeMarshall in the music video for My Brother’s Keeper highlight “Never Change.” Dropping jewels and enjoying simple pleasures from the block to the barbershop and beyond, Grande shows off the blue-collar bars and uncommon ear for beats that place him amongst Philly’s finest.
Summer of Sammy! Brooklyn’s resident sax house maestro is back with “BLO,” his funkiest track yet – and the first in a series of singles leading up to SB’s debut full-length LP. This one’s a heater, flipping classic drum machine grooves and New Jack Swing snares for a new generation. B-side “Pal Sammy” keeps it cheeky on the late night tip, making this double-stuffed single a must have on warm weather playlists worldwide.
Grab it now on Fool’s Gold, and celebrate the release with Sammy at Trophy Bar in Brooklyn this Saturday, 7/9 with The Whooligan (Soulection) and more. Check the flyer after the jump!
The DAY OFF MIA lineup is here and it’s innnnnnnsane! Our 2016 throwdown on Saturday, 9/17 is an all-ages event for the history books. Fool’s Gold’s BK neighbor and Pro Era general Joey Bada$$ headlines alongside A-Trak & Friends (will he top last year’s surprises of 2Chainz and Juvenile?) and Hudson Mohawke, fresh off supercharging Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo and Boys Noize’s latest LP. Young ATL heroes Playboi Carti and Lil Yachty set fire to the rap rulebook, FG sparkplugs Ape Drums and BOSCO & Speakerfoxxx provide tropical vibes, and turntable vets Nick Catchdubs and Damaged Goods keep the party going all day long.
