Don’t miss this week’s installment of my new “Around the World” column over at the Fader blog: Paris at Mehdi & Fafi’s, more mastering in London, shooting the shit with Armand Van Helden and Herve, computer crashes in Rome… it’s all there!
You might have noticed Pete Tong dropping Laidback Luke & A-Trak’s “Shake It Down” on his show last month, and now on his latest show he’s gone and made it an Essential New Tune! Dropped the LBL remix of Treasure Fingers’ “Cross The Dancefloor” in the set as well.
Sure sure it’s on Kitsune but it’s my single goddammit and we put the Fool’s Gold logo on there! So I’m putting this on this-here blog.
Sooooooo I have a track called “Say Whoa”, you probably heard it on my “Running Man” record (or at least on the snippets if your lazy arse didn’t purchase it) and now it’s out as a single! You also get remixes by Sinden (pounding!) and Boys Noize (paranoia-inducing!) and best of all, my very own Kitsune head drawering.
NYC get psyched! Continuing our annual tradition, the whole fam touches down in NYC on Thursday, October 23rd for the FOOL’S GOLD CMJ SHOWCASE AND ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY!
Grab your advance tickets here to check out Kid Sister (debuting tracks off her new album Dream Date), A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Jokers Of The Scene, Trackademicks, Nacho Lovers, Sammy Bananas, and Nick Catchdubs, as well as a special DJ set from Fool’s Gold big bro Dave 1 of Chromeo… and perhaps a special guest or two?!?
They’ve decided to make this week “Fool’s Gold Week,” and to celebrate we’ve given them a different exclusive download or stream for every day. It started off with a Nacho Lovers megamix showcasing all the tracks off their forthcoming “Acid Life / Go On” single, continued with a promo download of Sammy Bananas’ “Ladies” off his Braids & Fades EP, and today we dropped a preview stream of A-Trak and Laidback Luke’s massive team-up “Shake It Down.” Tomorrow the Surkin remix of Nacho Lovers’ “Acid Life” (off our Scion comp) makes its debut, and then we close the week real big with another megamix, this time featuring tracks off Jokers Of The Scene’s long awaited Acid Bagg EP.
