Producer Nick Hook continues his streak of unique collabs with “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” a rowdy and righteous UK-vs-BK stomper featuring young grime hero Novelist. Like the rest of Nick’s upcoming Fool’s Gold album Relationships, “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” was recorded in-person at his Greenpoint studio, thespacepit. Nov sums up the track (and the creative spirit that fuels Relationships as a whole) in his Instagram post about the producer earlier this summer. “Nick Hook – This man gave me a new outlook on life when I met him in New York at 18 years old when I went out there alone. He reiterated to me that FREEDOM starts in the mind and to do what you want with 100% of your energy.” Check out the video premiere on THE FADER.
Catch Nick Hook on his Get (Back) In The Van Tour this fall! Tour dates after the jump.
A-Trak and Tommy Trash’s funk phenomenon “Lose My Mind” gets a high-powered remix courtesy of OWSLA-approved upstart Mija. She stays true to the original track’s feel-good strut (and cowbell!) while adding her own supercharged thump and awesome vocal chops, making this mix an absolute must-have for dance freaks and party people worldwide.
A-Trak and Tommy Trash “Lose My Mind” might be the funkiest track FG’s ever released. But did you know that French production hero Alex Gopher was the song’s secret weapon mix engineer? It’s a musical tidbit the guys are understandably proud of – and to help share it with you, Trizzy hit up the man himself for a little background on his musical roots, favorite synths, mixdown tricks and more. (For even more FG x AG action, peep his remix work on Kid Sister’s “Get Fresh” single from back in ’08.) Read on! Read More
Black Dave is NYC personified, a fixture in the music and skate worlds whose presence keeps the underground as lit as humanly possible. Fresh from ripping the stage at Fool’s Gold DAY OFF (and his Thrasher-approved part in Zoo York’s bone-crushing viral skate video NYBD), Black Dave drops his first official release on FG in the form of “Hangover,” produced by Nick Catchdubs. It’s the opening salvo from their collab EP of the same name, a collection of bass anthems and turn up tales from the city that never sleeps.
To ensure the safest event for our fans, we’re moving Fool’s Gold DAY OFF from Miami’s Wynwood district to a new venue, Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale (100 SW 3rd Ave). Advance tickets are available at fgdayoff.com, and all previously purchased tickets will be honored.
LA’s Madeaux and ATL’s ManMan Savage join forces for the mesmerizing “Pull Up,” taken from their eponymous EP (out 9/23). “Get money” motivation gone Aeon Flux, this is not for the faint of heart nor small speakers.
“Submerged” is the first taste of GEOTHEORY’s Tales Untold EP, an awesome hybrid of trap horns, screwed house basslines and flute riffs. Listen now and stay tuned for more from this one-of-a-kind NYC talent on his debut Fool’s Gold release.
DAY OFF NYC is tomorrow! Don’t get caught without tickets for Migos, Juelz Santana, A-Trak & Friends, Lil Yachty and many, many, MANY more! Peep the set times below and get the last remaining tix at fgdayoff.com. We’ll see you on the east side at the 34th St Heliport, rain or shine!
