Rome Fortune’s “Dance” gets taken to the roller rink courtesy of LA-via-Minneapolis funkster Gigamesh. Vintage synths and “Planet Rock” worthy 808s make this reanimated “Dance” a summertime essential. Hear the Kaytranada-produced original on Rome’s debut LP Jerome Raheem Fortune, and check additional flips from Brenmar, Fred Falke, Felon and more on the “Dance Remixes” EP, both out now on Fool’s Gold.
Ape Drums lives up to his namesake with the gorilla-in-the-trunk bump of new Fool’s Gold single LFUTP. The bad bwoy DJ and in-demand collaborator (A-Trak, Diplo) returns to his Houston hometown for this raucous jam featuring Texas MC Rizzoo Rizzoo and reigning rap upstart Lil Uzi Vert. Party tested at Ape Drums shows around the globe, “LFUTP” deserves nothing less than to be played at maximum volume while driving through a residential neighborhood. Listen here.

Fool’s Gold’s annual DAY OFF is an end-of-summer institution. For seven years running, the all-day event has become a celebration of everything the beloved, genre-crossing Brooklyn label stands for— a musical slip ’n slide, connecting the city’s livest, most stylish fans and and a Who’s Who of new-school legends. DAY OFF is a scene in the truest sense of the word, a festival programmed like your favorite DJ set.
Who’s rocking the 2016 edition? Atlanta’s royalty Migos and rap anarchist Lil Yachty. Two generations of Harlem kings in Dipset legend Juelz Santana and rising star Dave East. FG chief A-Trak setting it off as a maestro behind the decks (and a conductor of special guests like none other), and fellow turntablist Gaslamp Killer providing his signature psychedelic bass. With label familia Nick Catchdubs, Meyhem Lauren, Leaf and more keeping the party going all day long, it’s another can’t-miss Fool’s Gold event.
It goes down on Saturday, August 20th in Brooklyn. Tickets for FGDO NY are available now at fgdayoff.com — earlybird tickets for FGDO Miami (9/17) and Los Angeles (9/25) go on sale this Friday at 1pm EST.
