We’re heading down to Atlanta (well, Chattahoochee Hills) to rock another Fool’s Gold Clubhouse stage at the Tomorrowworld festival! It’s a big ‘un: A-Trak, Araabmuzik, RL Grime, Fake Blood, Treasure Fingers, Bag Raiders, Style Of Eye, Nick Catchdubs, Codes, Anna Lunoe, Speakerfoxxx and FKI will be throwing down all Saturday (9/28).
And if that’s not enough, we’re sticking around another day for a FREE afterparty Sunday afternoon (9/29) poolside at the downtown W with Nick Catchdubs, Anna Lunoe, Treasure Fingers, Tchami and Speakerfoxxx! RSVP for the afterparty at wdowntowndayparties.eventbrite.com and get our pitchers of sweet tea ready. Read More
Our Australian homies Bag Raiders (the Big Fun-lovers themselves) are back stateside, touring all over the place opening for Ellie Goulding, with a smattering of solo gigs in between (like tonight, at Tammany Hall in NYC). Check out all the tour dates here, and download a new remix of “It’s Not Over” by fellow friend-of-FG Eli Escobar.
Bag Raiders continue their takeover of the Aussie airwaves with another DJ mix for JJJ Radio. This one is, in the words of Chris, “full of french house, touch, classics, throwbacks.. shit that got us into doing what we do…” and you can once again download it (along with the other two editions) from their Soundcloud.
Bag Raiders follow up their disco mix for Australia’s Triple J radio with this housey collection. Well, technically it aired before the disco one, but they just Soundcloud-ed it last night. More importantly: it previews the Cassian remix of Sammy Bananas’ “Move Your Body,” out soon! What are you waiting for?
The best part of touring Australia (other than the fact that they love DJs and partying more than almost anywhere else on the planet) is the ability to hang with awesome Aussies like Sydney synth team Bag Raiders and Heaps Decent honcho / jack-of-all-trades deejay Levins on the same trip. Good times on the reg!
This trio has been responsible for so many laughs while we’re overseas, we figured why not get Chris, Jack and LevDawg to spread the joy, and take a few minutes to talk about their favorite homegrown comedies. With the Bag Raiders’ self-titled new album out now, there’s no better time to share these (down) underground favorites.
Hit the jump for roundtable chuckles, and be sure to pick up the Bag Raiders’ Fool’s Gold EP Big Fun (featuring Donnis raps and XXXChange & Jokers Of The Scene remixes) on vinyl, iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else music is awesome.
We shouted out the new Bag Raiders single “Way Back Home” the other day, now lo and behold, here’s a music video for the tune, directed by Kris Moyes. And if that’s not enough, here’s a freebie remix of the track from our amigo Harvard Bass. Pari taim!
