A-Trak is back with another edition of his Around The World tour diary series, on a snazzy new website to boot! Check it out for all the fun from our Coachella trek last weekend, where the “giant A” made its debut.

Party people attending A-Trak and friends’ upcoming MAGIC 8-BALL TOUR (get your tickets now!) will have a chance to snag a limited-edition Scion A/V 7″ single featuring “Ray Ban Vision” backed by a brand new remix from Luckybeard, aka Phra of Crookers. It’s a jammer! Grab the mp3 now at Pitchfork.
For more Luckybeard goodness, check his great mix from last year. And be sure to pick up the new EP from Dr Gonzo, Phra and Bot’s collab with Savage Skulls (and more buddies). You’ll be hearing that one all summer…
After weeks and weeks of blood, sweat and InDesign, the Fool’s Gold chapter of Frank151 is out! You can snag physical copies soon at parties and select retail spots around the world (and via subscription, of course). But since the internet streets can’t wait, you can peep a downloadable PDF and flippable web mag version of the entire issue right here. What’s inside you ask? Read More
Stunna shades: on! Trizzy revitalizes the rap remix with Fool’s Gold’s first ever posse cut, keeping the CyHi Da Prynce chorus from his OG “Ray Ban Vision” (which you can grab on Fool’s Gold Vol 1) and enlisting Donnis, Pill, and Danny Brown to kill it on brand new verses over a supercharged, scratch-enhanced beat.
It’s always been a family affair ’round these parts, and now the mags are getting in on the action: check out Interview’s Q&A with the Brothers Macklovitch (and brother-from-another P-Thugg) when A-Trak and Chromeo were hanging at SXSW, and then preview the A-Trak / Dave1 fashion spread in the new issue of Complex, hitting stands now. Suits!
After a most triumphant weekend in Austin for SXSW, we’re bringing the party down to Miami! Come through this Saturday (3/26) to the Fool’s Gold showcase at Grand Central (we’re back!) featuring the whole fam and some special friends: A-Trak, Kenny Dope, Riva Starr, Just Blaze, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and…surprise guests? It’s free with RSVP, we’ll see ya there. Read More
Before the big FG Miami extravaganza this weekend, we figured why not warm things up with our friends?
RAP PARTY is just what you’d expect from the name: an afternoon of rap jams spun b2b from A-Trak and Craze, Busy P, Mehdi and Brodinski, Nick Catchdubs and Dave Nada, and Sammy Bananas and (Thee) Mike B. It goes down from 3-8pm at The Standard and is free with a donation to the Red Cross’ Japan relief efforts. We’ll see you there!
