A few weeks ago we ran through Austin for two mega parties during SXSW: a label showcase at the brand new Beauty Ballroom, and a team-up Super Party with Mad Decent and Check Yo Ponytail that took over BB as well as the giant Emo’s East down the street. Suffice it to say… shit got live!
From A$AP (and Sammy Bananas!) stagedives to A-Trak’s big-room scratchery, these were parties none of us will forget. Check out our recap video of both nights above, along with photos from our in-house shutterbug Josh Wehle (as well as a CYP’s full cinema-style featurette on Super Party) after the jump. Read More
Oink! Our Slow Roast brothers are hitting the road for their first ever label tour, kicking off at the end of the month and running through September. Check the full dates after the jump, including a special Labor Day party in NYC with Fool’s Gold, more on that later… shhhh…
Stay tuned for more music from the crew, including Klever’s debut EP, new tunes from Craze and 12th Planet, remixes, and more! Plus don’t forget about their first two releases from Kill The Noise and Señor Stereo, out now and cooked to perfection. Read More
Our gregarious dubsteppin bud 12th Planet wants to give readers of the Fool’s Gold blog some free tickets to his show this Friday in Los Angeles with Kingdom, Squeak E Clean of NASA and more.

Congrats to Philippe and Adrain, see you at the show. And congrats to DJ Mbenga for having an awesome name. Read More
Another mixed bag of beats, this time around with Eve and Ras Kass “dubstep rap,” Peedi Crakk breakbeats, more GLC G shit, Fabo and Tabi Bonney’s rap sangin (the latter helped by Raheem Devaughn) and a country rap tune from Natureboy Rowe. Read ownnn! Read More
