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!
March madness! Like we always do at this time, Team FG is going to be bumrushing a music festival near you with some unforgettable parties featuring the whole fam.
First up, our annual SXSW bash, back at Austin’s Palm Door (remember this one?) on Friday, March 18th with A-Trak, Donnis, Cubic Zirconia, Danny Brown, The Suzan, AraabMuzik, Kingdom, Telephoned, Party Supplies and Nick Catchdubs on the decks between acts all night. It’s an official festival showcase, which means SXSW badges / wristbands get in free all night. (There will be some limited tix for sale at the door.)
The following weekend, we head down to Miami to once again tear the roof off our downtown home Grand Central, rolling with an insane roster of superfriends including 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…special surprise guests? Stay tuned! It’s free with RSVP.
You know we have some bonus beat surprises up our sleeves for both weekends too. As always, keep checking this here site for the latest announcements and updates. Read More
A-Trak’s adventures (as chronicled on the Fader blog) continue.
Storytime! I went to Australia for a two week tour around the New Year and it was an action-packed adventure. I was thinking of recounting it all in iambic pentameter for dramatic purposes, but I couldn’t even come up with one lousy stanza. So here is the story as I’d normally tell it.
Our friends at Downtown are gearing up to celebrate their five-year anniversary. One night of revelry isn’t going to cut it though, so they’ve whipped up the Downtown Music Festival: Friday, March 4th with our own A-Trak and The Suzan representing, followed by a night at Terminal 5 on Saturday, March 5th featuring folks like Major Lazer, DJ Mehdi and Santigold.
Check out this footage of A-Trak’s panel last year at the Scion Music(less) Music Conference in Los Angeles, moderated by Eric Ducker. See the whole thing on the Scion MMC site, and get some back story on Mr Ducker’s Tumblr. Read More
Check A-Trak, Duck Sauce, Chromeo, Lil B, Laidback Luke, and a bunch of friends / rappers / dewdz with guitars on the lineup for Coachella this year, going down April 15-17th. More FG surprises that weekend? You’ll have to stay tuned…
