Well, the big news today is that Braids & Fades is for sale (see below, so pumped about this!) but also new and noteworthy is my upcoming European tour. I set sail next week on my maiden voyage to dj across the Atlantic. But while I’m smashing it up overseas, you all can rock to all the exclusives on this mix I made to promote the trip! Or if you happen to live in Oslo, Trondheim, Helsinki, London or Nottingham, you can get ready to come and see me. Link and tracklisting following el jump.
Dave N Pee hit the greater metropolitan area this weekend for All Points West, taking place at Liberty State Park in Jersey City (across the river from the Statue of Liberty, and across street from Liberty Science Center, which is kind of like Jersey’s own Knowledgeium. But I digress.) If you wanna catch the guys a few days earlier, RSVP for the free “PRE-APW BASH” on Thursday (8.7) in Brooklyn, featuring DJ sets from Chromeo, Bloc Party and the Virgins.
Fool’s Gold brothers in arms (legs?) Chromeo just released a new official video for their jam “Fancy Footwork,” which you can check above, directed by Ben Levine. It’s classy! But if that’s not enough moving picture action for you funkateers out there, check out this alternate zombie puppet version from Three Legged Legs, Greendot Films and Zune Arts (behind the scenes footage here).
The new issue of RE:UP is hitting newstands and mailboxes as we type, featuring guest issue designer Dust La Rock and a cover feature on Chromeo. Select copies also come with a free Fool’s Gold spring CD sampler! Seeing how it’s a such family affair, we are going to be presenting the release party with RE:UP this Friday (5/9) at Trophy Bar in Brooklyn. Tunes will be provided by Dave 1, Egg Foo Young, Queen Majesty, Barthalona From Ibitha and Brougham D’Elegance. RSVP for free entry, otherwise its a measly $5 at the door.
First things first, make sure you check out the official recaps of the Screaming Bloody Murder tour here and here. We did 8 untamed shows in 10 days, it felt like a barbarous blitz of rave riot. Sammy Bananas is the new official mascot of Fool’s Gold and his mustache couldn’t have been more timely. Steve is a dynamo, I don’t know where he gets his energy. And Sinden is my brother from a British mother. I can officially say the 2nd Fool’s Gold tour was a smash hit, and before I could even catch up with any sleep I was off to Coachella. Read More
As Busy P’s expertly Photoshopped show flyer should have told you, this past weekend of jams at the Coachella festival was a veritable FG family reunion. Brothers! Sisters! French cousins! But we’re back now (sunburnt, caffeinated, blogging) and the fruits of our festival self-Googling are yours after the jump. More added as we find ‘em. Read More
The Fool’s Gold fam will be at the Coachella festival this weekend getting sunburnt beyond belief radical tans and playing some music. On Sunday, you can check A-Trak and Kid Sister on the Gobi Stage and Chromeo on the Sahara Stage (full festival calendar here) and on Saturday you can check LA Riots, Flosstradamus, Nick Catchdubs and XXXChange playing the boosted mobile “Desert Poppin Pool Party” at the Mod Resort, 10 minutes away from the festival grounds (RSVP is a must).
