Last year’s maiden voyage of HARD’s Holy Ship! was a floating rave for the history books. So it’s only right that FG returned for the sequel (note the two exclamation points) and take Holy Ship!! over pirate-style once again. A-Trak, Oliver, Tommy Trash, Crookers, Dillon Francis, Baauer, RL Grime, Brodinski and even more of your favorite DJs got in on the action, check Josh Wehle’s recap video to see just how wavy it got. And for more aquatic action, peep Rukes’ photo galleries from days one, two and three.
Our recent remix contest for A-Trak & Zinc’s Natalie Storm-featuring “Like The Dancefloor” brought in a slew of great entries, with Bad Mr Kitty’s laser-laced contribution named the victor. You can get it now on Beatport!
For more contest winners, check out the top picks of our Crookers remix contest with Gotta Dance Dirty here, and our Danny Brown contest with LegitMix here. (Don’t worry producers, we’ll have more chances for you to strut your stuff soon…)
Our dude Funkin Matt just launched a new radio show! “Every other week I make an one hour long mix which is aired on Versuz Radio in Belgium and uploaded on Soundcloud,” sez Matty. “Catch all episodes from now on to discover fresh new music and which tracks I like the best at the moment!” Episode #1 features his own “Rasp” (out now on FG as the b-side of the “I Wish” single) alongside A-Trak & Tommy Trash’s “Tuna Melt” and other fine danceables.
Check out A-Trak scratching (on Fool’s Gold Serato vinyl, no less!) alongside Clark Kent and AraabMUZIK, as they back up A$AP Rocky on his Late Night With David Lettermanperformance this past Tuesday. Read More
On December 19th, we celebrated the holiday season once again with our friends at LTD+ and a gang of New York City’s finest party people. Danny Brown and GrandeMarshall brought the raps, DJ Mustard (on the beat hoe!), Just Blaze and Nick Catchdubs held it down on the 1s and 2s, the whole A$AP Mob was in effect, and it was another festive notch in the FG events belt. Watch the recap vid above and check out some flicks from Brook Bobbins after the jump (full gallery here). Read More
Oliver have found the beating heart inside the dance machine. Mechanical, the LA duo’s debut Fool’s Gold EP (out next Tuesday!), is a four track showcase of some of the funkiest, toughest and most diverse electronic music today. Check out this snippet mix for a taste, and preorder the EP on iTunes.
Our buddy Dillon Francis is hitting FG’s hometown this weekend for two big shows at Webster Hall. Saturday 1/19 with GTA (19+), and Sunday 1/20 with Gent & Jawns and Anamanaguchi (16+). Cop your advance tix and come party! Get in the mood with Dil’s A-Trak collab “Money Makin,” available in original and remixed form everywhere fine digital music is sold, as well as on snazzy split color vinyl from the FG webstore.
