Last fall, A-Trak, Flosstradamus and Donnis hit the road for our first ever Fool’s Gold House Party Tour. Check out Noisey’s recapvideos (and peep thesephotogalleries from our bud Kirill Was Here) to see all the madness that went down in basements, frats, and bowling alleys across America. Read More
Chicago-based rap outpost Ruby Hornet sat down with our dude GrandeMarshall for their latest cover feature. Check it out and read up on how he linked with FG, what he thinks about the “state of Philly hip hop,” his studio grind, coming up on State Prop, and more. Then go download Grande’s debut 800 for free and hear his latest joint, “Kelly Green,” on our rap compilation, Loosies. This kid’s got next. Read More
Late last night, Just Blaze took to Soundcloud in a celebratory mood (happy birthday!) to debut a dance track he’s been playing at our parties: a nice bit of UNTZ built around the indelible piano riff from his “Exhibit A” beat for Jay Electronica. It’s not on his forthcoming Fool’s Gold EP, but a teaser of what to expect from it… and one of many moods you can expect Just to get into while on tour with Baauer this month and next, as they shake bodies and melt faces across North America. Tour dates after the jump.
Our friend Onra (and his friend Lexis) got together in Montreal and put together this mix of post New Jack Swing, pre Timbaland R&B headnodders from the likes of TLC, Zhane, Horace Brown, Jodeci and other masters of jiggy 90s soul (a time when artists could all be seen doing the “throw em up” dance in the videos, say the DJs). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, pour some Dom P and download it now (then watch all the videos from the mix, holy shit!) Read More
The newest Foolcast mix comes courtesy of Brooklyn’s own SicksentZ, the masked man you’ve seen onstage DJing for Mr MFN eXquire at parties around the globe (including the Fool’s Gold Clubhouse at Camp Bisco and HARD Summer) and rocking parties of his own all throughout the five boroughs. This seasoned raver weaves together a gang of original edits, unexpected remixes and all manner of trapped out favorites and grimey new discoveries in his mix. Pour it up and check it out…
Check this recap vid to see what went down at Basel Castle this past December during Miami’s Art Basel. Alongside performances from Trinidad Jame$, Purity Ring, Twin Shadown and others, we had our own FG stage with Chromeo’s Dave 1, Oliver, Nick Catchdubs and surprise guest LA Riots on the decks and Donnis MCing (bringing out Reese and the Two9 crew for even more ATL vibes).
Trackademicks and 1-O.A.K. teamed up for Lovelorn, a “two player co-op adventure” covering new wave and indie heartbreak jams (from LCD Soundsystem’s “Someone Great” to the Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now”) in their signature smoothed out Fresh Coast style. Download and get moody… Read More
The brothers of Sweet Valley fall even deeper down the beat rabbit hole on Jenova, their follow-up to Stay Calm and Eternal Champ. The duo’s beautifully dusted music takes a darker direction on Jenova, but their knack for untamed, unexpected textures (guitar feedback, girl group harmonies, trap hi-hats, Rambo noises) and ADD spirit keep the Sweet Valley vibes as lively as ever. Trip out to this…
