Heaps Decent x A-Trak

Posted on Jun 10th, 2010

You probably have heard about the Heaps Decent nonprofit currently fighting the good fight in Australia – if not, here’s the rundown. Last year on a day off from his shows on the Parklife tour, A-Trak went down to the Riverina Juvenile Justice Centre and put this track together with kids at the HD workshop.

Heaps Decent feat MC Huz & The Riverina Crew – Anywhere But Here (Produced by A-Trak) by Heaps Decent

Read the full story on the HD blog – they are offering the track for free to encourage you to spread the word about the program, and you can also make a donation to ensure that they can continue to bring music workshops like this to underprivileged kids for years to come.

Posted on May 4th, 2010

Starting this week, people walking the streets and riding the subways of NYC and Brooklyn have been greeted by the handsome trio of FG founders A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs and Dust La Rock, mugging it up for Bushmills’ new “Since Way Back” ad campaign, also featuring portraits of friends Chromeo, DFA, No Mas, and Kai Regan and co. There’s painted wall-size versions (ours is next to Alife Rivington Club), subway ads, and proper billboards throughout the metro area. Keep us posted with your Twitpics, etc when spotted!

Fool's Gold WMC 2010 Recap

Posted on Apr 20th, 2010

Last month we hit up Miami for yet another smash Fool’s Gold Winter Music Conference takeover!

Duck Sauce made their triumphant live DJ debut (which New Times named WMC’s best!), DJ Sneak, Just Blaze and (surprise surprise) Laidback Luke rocked guest sets, and the whole FG DJ family put it down like never before all night at brand-new venue Grand Central in downtown Miami. Check some highlights in our wrap-up clip (once again edited by Lizi Gross) and peep a TON of photo galleries – from GC as well as the Fool’s Gold x Mad Decent “Mad Fools” party later that weekend – after the jump.

Chilly Gonzales & A-Trak Live

Posted on Feb 22nd, 2010

As mentioned earlier, A-Trak and Chilly Gonzales teamed up at Joe’s Pub last week. Says A-Trak: “Often times it’s the casual shows, the “oh I’m just doing this on the side for fun” shows that end up being my favorite ones. Maybe it’s because I love to improvise. Or maybe it’s because these are shows I do with my friends, which is fertile ground for creativity. Last year it was my set at the Do Over. This year so far, my favorite performance was this little guest spot I did at Chilly Gonzales’s Piano Talk Show at Joe’s Pub in New York last Thursday. It was barely rehearsed, only 15 minutes in length, and we were both coming in from long flights with little to no sleep. Watch the result, I hope you enjoy it!”
