Before the big FG Miami extravaganza this weekend, we figured why not warm things up with our friends?
RAP PARTY is just what you’d expect from the name: an afternoon of rap jams spun b2b from A-Trak and Craze, Busy P, Mehdi and Brodinski, Nick Catchdubs and Dave Nada, and Sammy Bananas and (Thee) Mike B. It goes down from 3-8pm at The Standard and is free with a donation to the Red Cross’ Japan relief efforts. We’ll see you there!
A live version of Donnis’ anthem “Gone” is up on iTunes as their Single Of The Week – download it for free, and be sure to pick up the original “Gone” single (with remixes by Craze and Nosaj Thing) if you haven’t already!
Fresh from the Slow Roast grill comes this amazing package of Senor Stereo remixes, which you can pick up exclusively at Beatport (other digi retailers to follow). The disco-inspired trio of Danny Daze, Gigamesh and Joe Maz have been producing on their own (and in various combinations together) for years, but first hit the scene as SS this past summer with the release of their Unintentional EP – the tracks quickly became DJ favorites, so it’s no surprise that these brand-new remixes more than follow suit, with Treasure Fingers, Nadastrom, U-Tern, Salva, Craze and SS’s own Gigamesh all providing awesome, instantly-clubbable new versions. Cop em!
As you saw in the video for “Barbra Streisand,” our inaugural Day Off party on Labor Day in NYC was beyond crazy. Guest raps from Yelawolf, Pill and Donnis, DJ sets from The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak & Dave1), Just Blaze, the Slow Roast crew (Craze, Klever & Kill The Noise) and Nick Catchdubs, and a live performance by The Suzan…the whole fam put it down!
Thanks to the crew at City Winery and all our production / promotion partners Scion, Jelly NYC, The FADER, LTD+, and Bushmills, all the FG soopa interns, and a giant Mr Goldbar bear hug to FG homegirl Dnyce for all her help behind the scenes. We’ll be back with more parties very soon! After the jump, some of our favorite Day Off moments. Read More
Putting a giant exclamation point on another summer of smash singles and packed-out parties across the country, Fool’s Gold – the trendsetting indie label founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs – is throwing a free DAY OFF party on Labor Day. It’s going down from 2-8pm in NYC at City Winery Backyard (155 Varick St, backyard entrance on Spring between Hudson & Varick) and the all-ages event will feature guest raps from Yelawolf, Pill and Donnis, DJ sets from The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak & Dave1), Just Blaze, Craze, Klever, Kill The Noise and Nick Catchdubs, and a live performance by The Suzan. It’s truly a family affair, with their friends from Scion, The Fader, LTD+, Slow Roast, Jelly and more on board to make it a can’t-miss party! Read More
Oink! Our Slow Roast brothers are hitting the road for their first ever label tour, kicking off at the end of the month and running through September. Check the full dates after the jump, including a special Labor Day party in NYC with Fool’s Gold, more on that later… shhhh…
Stay tuned for more music from the crew, including Klever’s debut EP, new tunes from Craze and 12th Planet, remixes, and more! Plus don’t forget about their first two releases from Kill The Noise and Señor Stereo, out now and cooked to perfection. Read More
The Do-Over is one of the best parties in the world, an LA oasis that pops off every Sunday afternoon powered by (unannounced) guest sets from the worlds finest selectors week in and week out. FG fam have beenamong those DJs in the past, so it was only natural that since a bunch of us were out in LA for the weekend post-Audiotistic, we would come back to rock again for The Fool Over!
Hit the Do-Over blog to grab sets recorded last Sunday from A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs, Craze and (surprise!) Juan MacLean, who set it off while eating a burger.
