With A-Trak and Milo & Otis’ “Out The Speakers” currently surfing a Dew-powered wave to the top, it’s only right we team up with Green Label to celebrate! RSVP at greenlabel.com/sxsw2015 to rock with us in Austin on Wednesday, 3/18. A-Trak will be performing alongside Joey Bada$$, MNDR & Sweet Valley (in their debut live show together!), Nick Catchdubs, Leaf, Brenmar, Kelechi and special guests. (Just added: Remy Banks, Chuck Inglish, Two-9 and Kool AD!) We’ll see you there… don’t forget about our label showcase on Friday 3/20 and the “Super Party” on Saturday 3/21 either!
Miami! We love you.

Four Color Zack is a scratch champion and technical innovator. DJ Scene is a clubland institution from Miami to Vegas and beyond. These two “real DJing” vets understand party music like none other, and it shows all throughout their new Slap It Down EP. Featuring amped-up guest vocals from M.O.P. and Mad Lion, Slap It Down lays classic hip-hop party break vibes over modern-day dance muscle, resulting in a stoopidly fun listen for all ages (word to FCZ and Scene’s 8 year old Seattle neighbor Yung Lenox getting busy on the cover artwork). Grab it now on iTunes and get ready to airhorn. (And if you don’t believe us, watch fellow DJ heroes Q-Bert, Jazzy Jeff and more gleefully cutting up the title track after the jump.)
Cash RFC is a NYC graf institution. Over the years he has also become a prolific street photographer, capturing the city and its denizens in all of their harsh, unretouched glory. His Artist Series show at our store/gallery in Brooklyn combines both sides of Cash’s creative outlets, showcasing portraits of tags alongside the homeless and overlooked, with an uncanny eye for the heart in both. Come through for the opening on Thursday, 3/20 at 536 Metropolitan from 7-9pm. Refreshments will be served and limited edition shirts and photo prints will be available for purchase.
Hoodboi’s amazing debut EP Palm Reader drops 3/24 on FG, but he’s sharing the technicolor title track featuring Lido right now! Complex premiered the tune along with a Q&A, and you can get it immediately when you pre-order Palm Reader on iTunes. Check Hoodboi playing with Athletixx at our SXSW showcase in Austin 3/20!
Giraffage’s massive No Reason EP gets the deluxe wax treatment in the form of a new, multi-colored 12″ pressing (no two are alike!) housed in a beautiful spot varnish jacket. Not to be outdone, we’ve also dropped a physical version of A-Trak’s anthemic “Push” on pristine white vinyl, backed by remixes from DallasK, GANZ and our very own Shash’U. Get your copies of these limited pressings while they last at store.foolsgoldrecs.com, our retail shop at 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn, and at fine music retailers worldwide (if your store doesn’t carry these yet, call ’em and let ’em know!)

The FG fam is making our annual party pilgrimage down to Austin this month for the official Fool’s Gold SXSW Showcase on Friday, March 20th at Gypsy Lounge. Remember when you saw Kid Cudi at our first showcase? Flosstradamus? Danny Brown?!? This year, the cross-country coalition of awesome includes fresh signings from ATL (futuristic superstars Rome Fortune and Bosco, new rap heroes TM88 and ManMan Savage), LA (beat crew Athletixx and rap diva Leaf) and NYC (underground upstarts Fame School & Manolo Rose), alongside FG mainstays Brenmar, Nick Catchdubs and Shash’U, surprise friends and fam like Jersey crooner (and Yeezus favorite!) Fetty Wap, and many more, with A-Trak himself holding it down as master of ceremonies all night long. The event is free with SXSW badge or wristband, and limited $10 public tickets will be available at the door. Peep the full lineup after the jump, along with a video recap of last year’s showcase to remind you just how we get down… Read More
