A-Trak and Oliver have long been two of dance music’s absolute coolest. On their latest collab “Zamboni” (out next Tuesday, 12/10) these Fool’s Gold family members drop the tempature (and the bass) even further, crafting an iced-out funkstravaganza of synth squiggles and cut up ’80s drumrolls laid atop one insistent, brain-rattling acid riff. Get in the rink with these party boys and lose control!

Last year A-Trak hit the road with Flosstradamus, Donnis and friends for the first annual Fool’s Gold House Party, rocking actual homes (and, well, a bowling alley in New Jersey) as only FG can. The whole thing was a blast, so you know we had to do it again! This time it’s three shows in the greater Los Angeles area starting next week, stay tuned for clues on locations…

All year long we’ve been hitting you with massive DAY OFF events… now, after showcasing everyone from Duck Sauce to A$AP Mob on Labor Day in Brooklyn, taking the party to Boulder for high altitude sets from the likes of Danny Brown and Carnage, and giving LA an unforgettable night with hometown heroes from DJ Quik to Schoolboy Q sharing the same stage, we’re taking the fam to Miami during Art Basel for our biggest DAY OFF yet.
Florida’s first ever Day Off goes down at Mana Wynwood Soundstage (Downtown) on Sunday, December 8th, headlined by Miami mayor Trick Daddy and featuring sets from A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Dave 1 of Chromeo, Young Thug, Brenmar, Nick Catchdubs, Damaged Goods, Eskeerdo, and special guests galore. The whole event is free with RSVP at foolsgoldrecs.com/dayoff. Don’t sleep!

For our last label stage of the 2013 festival season (*wipes single neon tear from cheek*) we brought the Fool’s Gold fam down to the Chattahoochee Hills of Georgia and kicked it into overdrive at Tomorrowworld! It was an all day adventure: ATL’s own FKI and Speakerfoxxx (with Gangsta Boo MCing!) started the day off strong, Anna Lunoe, Codes, Nick Catchdubs and Style Of Eye kept it housey all afternoon, Bag Raiders and Treasure Fingers brought in the funk and brought down the sun, and then Fake Blood, RL Grime, Araabmuzik and A-Trak absolutely murdered late into the night with the help of a few thousand ravers (not to mention giant LED animations, fireworks, confetti cannons and more). But why describe it when you can watch the recap video above? Some of our favorite still pics after the jump as well. C U NEXT SUMMER! Read More
