The A-Trak and Dillon Francis “Money Makin’” video is the work of BENvsDAN, aka directors Ben Solomon and Daniel B Levin. This creative team does more than bring ATM machines to life however. Among their other credits, the guys are behind two of the cooler independent films to come out of NYC in recent years, the LES documentary Captured and the impressionistic drama Dirty Old Town. We have both films in stock in the Fool’s Gold webstore, as well as our retail HQ on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn, NY. Pick ‘em up for movie night…
As promised, A-Trak and Dillon Francis’ first collab “Money Makin’” is out today on Fool’s Gold, cop it from iTunes or Beatport.
We’ve also got a music video, premiered by Noisey! In keeping with the two DJs’ absurd sense of humor, they star in the clip as repairmen who transform a busted ATM into a hard-partying dance machine that takes the big city by storm… until the dough runs out.
Directed by Ben Solomon and Daniel B Levin, and featuring cameos from P-Thugg of Chromeo, rap legend Greg Nice, Action Bronson and more, “Money Makin’” is yet another must-see FG vid, and the perfect kick-off to summer jam season. Read More

Our buds Vin Sol and 5kin&Bone5 have launched a new label called Soo Wavey, kicking things off with a stripped-down “Rhythm Tracks” release of Roland drum machines gone mad.
