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!

Hit up Beatport this second and grab “You Take Me Higher,” a joyous, totally infectious dance gem from Rogerseventytwo, the numerical gentleman currently riding high as half of TWR72, the duo behind techno hit “Future Tool” and remixes for Hey Today! (Kitsune) and Teki Latex (Sound Pellegrino).
Amazingly, this irresistible disco house singalong went unsigned for months and months until A-Trak (who had made it a staple of his live sets, both solo and as Duck Sauce with Armand Van Helden) snapped it up for Fool’s Gold. “You Take Me Higher” is finally ready to go from a fileshared DJ secret weapon to a true club anthem for the summer.
The single package includes a brand new, beefed-up mix of the title track, along with a futuristic, R&B inspired take from Brooklyn upstart Brenmar (Grizzly), and a massive, deep techno version by Italy’s NT89 (Southern Fried). And if that’s not enough, it all comes backed by two more Rogerseventytwo originals: the foot stomping “What You Wanna Be” alongside the synth chops and big room boom of “Future Funk.”
Check Rogerseventytwo rocking with us on July 8th as part of the FOOL’S GOLD TAKES PARIS megaparty going down at Grande Halle De La Villette with A-Trak, Chromeo and many more.
