We celebrated three years of Fool’s Gold by closing out Pitchfork #Offline at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday, October 23rd 2010. It was a crazy evening of anniversary revelry, starring our friends and fam new and old: A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Donnis, CyHi Da Prynce, The Suzan, Kingdom, Araabmuzik on the MPC, and guest appearances by GZA of the Wu Tang Clan and this Kanye West fellow you might have heard of. OUR CHAIN HEAVY! Read More
The first full-length albums on FG are available for download today on iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold. Stop what you’re doing and grab Fool’s Gold Vol 1 (featuring new music from the whole fam) and Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat this second!
Check out some Fools in the new Hennesy Blending Of Art project: a Dust La Rock-designed bottle for A-Trak and a Kid Sister bottle from Fafi. The dynamic duos give some background on their collab in theseinterviews.
Check A-Trak and a bunch of our buds in LA next weekend for Hard Haunted Mansion. Busy P & Brodinski are among said buds, and they also happened to put together a promo mix for the party (featuring Duke Dumont’s awesome “Thudding Like Elmer” remix of LA Riots’ “The Drop,” out now on FG) that you should download immediately.
Come celebrate three years of Fool’s Gold next weekend as we close out the Pitchfork #Offline festival at Brooklyn Bowl with an evening of anniversary revelry starring our friends and fam new and old: A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Donnis, CyHi Da Prynce, The Suzan, Kingdom and even Araabmuzik on the MPC. Not to be missed!
It all goes down on Saturday, October 23rd – just in time for the release of the compilation album and The Suzan’s Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat two days later – and all info on tickets (just $10!) and the rest of the fest can be found on the #Offline website.
Just because A-Trak has become an international dance superstar doesn’t mean he can’t throw down pure hip-hop bangers with the best of them. So for his contribution to Fool’s Gold Vol 1, Trizzy goes straight for the subwoofers with “Ray Ban Vision,” enlisting G.O.O.D. Music upstart CyHi Da Prynce (who you last heard stealing the show on Kanye’s “So Appalled”) to drop extra-fly couplets on top of all the scratched-in synths and atomic kick drums. Grab it at RCRD LBL and check for the rest of our comp when it drops on 10/25.
As you may have seen on Pitchfork today, our first-ever compilation LP, Fool’s Gold Vol 1 is making its way to you fine people of planet Earth on October 25th (same day as The Suzan LP – they both got bumped to Monday cause of Taylor Swift. Good looking out ma!)
The 14 new tracks on Fool’s Gold Vol 1 are a 3-D look at where FG has been and where we’re going next. “Ray Ban Vision,” A-Trak’s robot-rocking collab with G.O.O.D. Music upstart CyHi Da Prynce, sits comfortably next to Treasure Fingers’ joyous dance pop throwback “Keep Up” and The Suzan’s rollicking cover of Miike Snow’s “Animal,” along with new tracks from other exciting, constantly-evolving talents like Kingdom, Flosstradamus, and even Lil B, who teases his forthcoming EP with the #based bass of “Freeze.”
You will be able to download Vol 1 from all fine music retailers, as well as purchase a limited-edition CD copy (and other FG treats) at Opening Ceremony boutiques worldwide. We are immensely proud to share these new tracks from our family with all of you!
