Just in time for Valentine’s, Nick Catchdubs drops a new mix of chopped up house, r&b, freestyle-inspired indie dance and “emotional breakdance music” called Icy Grape. Timberlake, Kellz, Future, Disclosure, XXXY, Solange, Tensnake, Duke Dumont, Riton, Miguel, all cuddled up on kick drums like they should be. Grab this (and even more mixes) on his Soundcloud.
Our “BLVCK FXXLS” capsule collection with Black Scale from last year was one of the most popular and sought-after collabs in Fool’s Gold history. So it’s only right that we team up with our friends from the Bay once again, with four new versions of the iconic “Illegal” snapback. These will release in limited quantities at noon this Saturday (2/16) at Black Scale’s SF store, the Fool’s Gold store at 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn, and at store.foolsgoldrecs.com. Read More
You’ve definitely seen Remy Banks of the World’s Fair crew rocking at Fool’s Gold events in NYC, now check him stomping through Los Angeles with Bodega Bamz (and a donut-loving bud) in this new clip for “GLDCHN.”
It’s that time of year again… the mtvU Woodie Awards are back, and Fool’s Gold is representing with Danny Brown up for Best Video (“Grown Up”) and A-Trak nominated for TWO “Tag Team” Woodies, for his Dillon Francis collab “Money Makin” as well as “Warrior” with Mark Foster and Kimbra (no stranger to awards herself, we see those Grammys…) GET TO VOTING!
BK club master Codes has a new release out today on Slow Roast, a high powered, genuinely diverse dancestravaganza called The Get Down. Get it now on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold!
The title track’s big room laser disco madness manages to fit perfectly next to the hip-hop flavored electro of “Let Me Break It” and the trapped out bass-n-breaks of “All The Game.” Throw in collaborations with Smog Records champ Flinch (the supremely ravey “Come Down”) and BK bombshell Carrie Wilds (on the smoothed out closer “Temptation”) and you have one of the most exciting releases of the new year. And if that’s not enough, Codes dropped yet another freebie to get you in the mood, with the extra amped-up “In Your Brain.” Grab it!
You have nine days left to contribute to Sammy’s vinyl Kickstarter (the goal is reached, but there’s a few vinyl packages still available), but in the meantime, get busy with this mix of some of his favorite unofficial remixes over the past ten years. The funk is there, friends.
