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? You’ll just have to come thru and see, free entry with SXSW badge (get there early – this will fill up!)
Full size flyers after the jump, more news on our artists’ full festival schedules soon! Read More
Boston’s new electronic music week Together is one of the best festival ideas we’ve seen in a while, a community-based series of events that’s as much about throwing great parties as building a strong local scene for all the months there isn’t a fest in town. We’re proud to have some of our own taking part – tonight you can catch Kingdom at the Nu Life party at Zuzu, and tomorrow Congorock will be putting it down alongside Klever for We The People at Estate. Plus there’s all sorts of other events going on with the likes of Untold, Justin Martin, AC Slater & Udachi, Sinden, Neon Indian, DJ Funk and many more. Check it out!
Our European Vacation Tour was a smashing success, as evidenced by the highlight reel above (soundtracked by the forthcoming Jokers Of The Scene single “Revolting Joks”). But the onstage action doesn’t end there: Red Bull Music Academy Radio recorded live sets from the last night of the tour in Paris (A-Trak, JOTS, Congorock and Arthur King), and you can listen to them here alongside great photos by Mr Mass.
Now streaming on Vimeo! The Pomp&Clout directed clip is also available for purchase on iTunes (as part of the previously mentioned Scion A/V video collab series), stay tuned for the full Congorock “Babylon” single coming soon.
Check this handy guide to everywhere the Fool’s Gold family will be rocking on NYE, from dueling Macklo Bros in Los Angeles to the Suzan in Tokyo to Congorock in warm and sunny Toronto. Bring on 2010! MMX is a damn fine Roman numeral. Read More
Earth! Water! Fire! It’s not Battle Beasts, but the mysterious video for Congorock’s new track “Babylon,” which debuts today as part of Scion A/V’s inaugural video series, available now on iTunes and up for streaming on the SA/V site (and everywhere else great on the web) in early January.
“Babylon” is directed by Pomp&Clout and is rather awesome, if we do say so ourselves. Get ready for more from Congorock and the official single release very soon! Watch clips and info on the other videos in the SA/V series (including DFA, Southern Lord, Vice and more) here.
Scion A/V has a free iPhone / iPod Touch app out now – download it here to listen to all their radio stations right in the palm of your hand, as well as download music from all their CD samplers and remix projects (including nuff Fool’s Gold tunes) and more. Watch the video above, where an animated Blu Jemz explains it all.
And speaking of videos, hit the jump for a teaser trailer for Scion A/V’s new music video project, featuring Congorock’s forthcoming “Babylon.” Stay tuned! Read More
The first ever FG euro tour wraps up with a bang this Saturday (12/12) in Paris at Nouveau Casino, a two-room extravaganza featuring A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs, Jokers Of The Scene and Congorock alongside local heroes Surkin, So-Me and Arthur King. Don’t miss it!
