Y’all ready for some ravin? This weekend the massive Electric Daisy Carnival pops off in Los Angeles, and of course Fool’s Gold will be helping to put 100,000+ hands in the air.
A-Trak is pulling double duty as part of Travis x A-Trak (Friday) and Duck Sauce (Saturday), and having previewed the stage shows for both, all we can say is: y’all are in for some big surprises! Congorock, LA Riots, Laidback Luke, and more friends will also be doing it big throughout the weekend. Get psyched! More FG festival appearances on deck…
Head over to the Federation Sound blog to download the new Lexx-I-Con mixtape, a dope (and very thorough!) primer on the tunes of Mr Lexx, courtesy of Max Glazer and Kenny Meez of Federation. Appropriately enough, this collection of dancehall detonators closes out with Lexx’s Congorock collab “Babylon,” perhaps THE definition of BIG TUNE!
Congorock brings his “More Fire” tour back to the motherland with a month of Italian dates starting this weekend. Check the flyer with full listings after the jump! Meanwhile, we’ve been hard at work putting together a remix package for Congorock’s deejay favorite “Babylon,” details on the release to be revealed very soon… Read More
Last month we hit up Miami for yetanother smash Fool’s Gold Winter Music Conference takeover!
Duck Sauce made their triumphant live DJ debut (which New Times named WMC’s best!), DJ Sneak, Just Blaze and (surprise surprise) Laidback Luke rocked guest sets, and the whole FG DJ family put it down like never before all night at brand-new venue Grand Central in downtown Miami. Check some highlights in our wrap-up clip (once again edited by Lizi Gross) and peep a TON of photo galleries – from GC as well as the Fool’s Gold x Mad Decent “Mad Fools” party later that weekend – after the jump.

About time! Like we do everyspring, the whole fam went down to Austin a few weeks back for SXSW. Our artists had tons of shows and guest sets to hit, but the pieces de resistance were the two FG events: the Texas Takeover at Republic Live, and the official FG SXSW Showcase at Malverde. Strictly best-of-the-best DJs, MCs, and even some new rock-n-rollers. Party! Whistles!
Check the highlight reel above (stitched together by our edit mistress Lizi Gross) and hit the jump for way more pics and video from our Texas tweekend. WMC up next! Read More
After getting people hyped with the music video, and a packed month of “More Fire” tour dates, it’s only right that Congorock’s “Babylon” finally sees official release. The single features a massive vocal version with dancehall don Mr Lexx (the voice behind Major Lazer’s “Hold The Line” and many more lighter-flickers), the instrumental dub you already know and love from the video, and a “Lexxapella” for the DJs to play with. Big!
Grab it next week on Beatport, and all other services shortly there after. Vinyl on its way too, with some huge remixes… oh you thought we forgot about those? Hell naw! If that’s not enough, you can grab these none-more-black Congorock logo tees at our webstore, featuring the new metal logo from the “Babylon” sleeve above, designed by Dust La Rock ov cvrse!
It’s that time of year again… we’re bringing the whole gang down to Austin for SXSW festivities. Suited and booted!
First up is our inaugural “Texas Takeover” party on Thursday, 3/18 at Republic Live, featuring Travis x A-Trak, Donnis, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, Kingdom and Sammy Bananas. Get advance tickets here.
Then the following night (Friday 3/19) at Malverde we go even bigger with our official SXSW showcase, featuring Vega, Kid Sister w/ Flosstradamus, Telephoned, Jokers Of The Scene, Trackademicks, The Suzan, Nick Catchdubs, Malente, our extended fam Theophilus London, and… surprise guests?
