LNDN DRGS is the Cali rap you need RIGHT NOW. The slowed samples and house party vibes of Bompton rapper Jay Worthy and Vancouver producer Sean House might conjure G-Funk classics of old, but this ain’t a DeLorean on Daytons. Mentored by the late A$AP Yams, LNDN DRGS have pulled from generations of game to make modern day slaps all their own. After burning down the stage at Fool’s Gold DAY OFF LA (leaving a trail of curl activator in their wake), LNDN DRGS and FG have combined forces for the free album Aktive, featuring some of the funnest, filthiest West Coast jams we’ve heard in our lives (and cover art by OG Doggystyle illustrator Joe Cool). Roller rink basslines, low riding flows, crucial, um, “dating advice”… this is LNDN DRGS raw and uncut, welcoming everyone to the function. Premiered by The FADER, download Aktive now and play it everywhere!
Rome Fortune’s feel-good debut Fool’s Gold single “Dance” (produced by Montreal funk maestro Kaytranada) gets a music video courtesy of Rome’s longtime visual collaborators GOLDRUSH. While the track earworms into your brain, Rome choreographs an entire club dancing their pain away (with blue beards for everyone!), showing off his one-of-a-kind ATL style and boundless charisma in the process. Listen to “Dance” now!
We’re turning over control of the FG Spotify account to our biggest friends and fam with the new “Fool’s Gold Guestlist” playlist! Hoodboi kicks things off properly, fresh from tour with a new collection of club cuts, mind expanders and all kinds of Athletixx awesomeness. Subscribe now and listen up!
GrandeMarshall’s long-awaited new studio album, My Brother’s Keeper, is out now. In a sea of trend-hopping MCs, this Philly artist has confidently sailed his own wave since 2012, when Fool’s Gold founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs signed Grande on the strength of the self-released debut, 800. The following year’s free FG album Mugga Man pushed the envelope even further, and propelled GrandeMarshall into conversation amongst some of hip-hop’s biggest up and coming names. Working with the likes of Flume and Nadus while consistently putting out impressive solo tracks has earned this North Philadelphia rapper nods from the press and original heads alike. Yet My Brother’s Keeper is a new milestone for Grande – unhurried, self-assured, and deeply personal. Play My Brother’s Keeper loud!
There’s no one quite like Tommy Trash. With his signature locks and manic stage presence, he’s firmly established himself as one of the most iconic characters in dance music. We’re excited to welcome Tommy back to FG with the new Luv U Giv EP, a three song showcase for his ecstatic, 80s-inspired take on the Trashed groove that fans know and love. The release is accompanied by a very special music video trilogy featuring the island misadventures of a 12” tall Tommy toy and a horde of ravaging cannibal dolls; watch them all now (peep the making of later!) and play Luv U Giv as loud as possible!
LNDN DRGS drop another smooth cut off their upcoming free album Aktive. This one is called “Hop Out”, premiered earlier on Complex. Listen to it below and watch the video for “Susan” for some more of that fonk after the jump. Get ready to get Aktive Monday, November 23rd!
Brenmar’s awesome Award EP was a showcase for this New York club king’s production finesse. Now a gang of DJ favorites return the favor on the diverse new Award Remixes collection, taking the originals to all kinds of speaker-friendly new directions. Gutta flips “Award” featuring Dougie F into a low-end Jersey smash, Enferno adds even more bedroom boom to “Plenty To Spare” feat Ro James, and Harlem’s Austin Millz takes “Don’t Want It” feat Sayyi to new levels of trapped-out intensity. The EP closes out with two very special house mixes of Award hit “Hula Hoop” feat Uniiiqu3, with DiscoTech providing champagne-n-sparklers energy and ex Crookers / current Main Course chief BOT getting deep and funky. Premiered today on PAPER, listen to the Award Remixes now (and if that’s not enough, fans and aspiring producers can get busy on “Hula Hoop” themselves with an official Fool’s Gold remix contest on Audiomack. Bring it back around!)
Treasure Fingers is a body-moving master who’s kept the party going since the earliest days of FG (and might be the only producer in the game who can boast nu disco anthems and Young Thug mixtape cuts in their catalog). His ATL neighbor BOSCO switches between genres just as deftly, penning future R&B jams and uptempo vogue workouts with style and ease. The duo follow up last Summer’s “Names” with the equally joyous new collab “MYNE” (premiered on Yahoo) an ultra-catchy, bass’d up slice of house music. Treasure Fingers’ drums have never been funkier, while BOSCO’s sweet-n-sour vocal shouts are truly irresistible. Pump up the jam and listen to “MYNE” now.
Our FG 8 Year Anniversary party at Club Lust in BK was legendary! DJs, rappers, dancers (oh my)… everyone brought their A-Game to the night show. Peep the recap vid above, and photo galleries from Village Voice, Thump, and Wxllxxm. Our friends Brook Bobbins and Grady Brennan were there snapping too, peep the full photo gallery on the FG Facebook and some selects after the jump. Relive the night in all its jiggling glory (whether you were there or not) with this snazzy tee featuring Josh Freydkis’ nutso flyer art and the 8 Year 8 Ball commemorative hat at store.foolsgoldrecs.com.
