This Saturday (10/9) check the last date of Kid Sister’s “Kiss Kiss Kiss” European tour, a Fool’s Gold uber-blowout at the Booty Call crew’s “Shake And Pop” party in Paris. This soiree is guaranteed to live up to its name, seeing as Kid Sis will be joined by Congorock and DJ Gant-Man, no strangers to perpetually shaking hindquarters themselves. All the info’s on Facebook, and some presale tix are still available. Don’t miss it!
Head over to 5 Chicago to check a Gant-Man video interview and download two free songs, “J-U-K-E-I-O-U” and “Poquito Spanish, Poquito House.” If you couldn’t tell, one is juked out and one is housing! For more Gant-Man, hit Beatport to pick up his new remix of Cajmere’s “Percolator” (alongside new takes from our buds Major Lazer, Riva Starr, Claude VonStroke and more). Chicago!
We’re proud to release a new grab bag from Crookers today! The “What Up Y’all” EP is out now on Beatport, iTunes, Juno and everywhere else fine digital music is sold (with vinyl on the way). What’s included, you ask? Read More
Slamming, jacking, sweating, pumping, thumping, EXPLODING… yep, must be Crookers.
The Italian DJ/production duo has been synonymous with all manner of intense dancefloor activity over the past few years, crafting absolutely massive (and massively influential) original tracks, along with remixes for some of the biggest names in pop. The Crookers’ version of Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite” snowballed from an underground club must-have to an international smash hit – so we’re obviously, undeniably proud to present this follow-up Fool’s Gold release.
The stacked “What Up Y’all” EP features the first official release of the title track (now properly mixed and mastered, with a shouted hook from Izza Kizza) as well as a hyperactive juke remix of Crookers’ anthem “Knobbers” by DJ Gant-Man, and two incredible takes on the follow-up Cudi collab “Embrace The Martian” courtesy of UK beat maestro Seiji – a crunching, hard-hitting “booty mix” and a squelchy acid version that take the dreamy original to two new heights. Take a listen to the acid mix right now at RCRD LBL.
You can also snag the dub version at Seiji’s blog. Grab these now and brace yourself for whatever the Crooks are cooking up next on their debut LP, coming soon.
Finally! We got the 12″s back for DJ Gant-Man’s “Juke Dat Girl” (featuring remixes by Nadastrom and Greenmoney) and Alexander Robotnick’s “Obsession For The Disco Freaks” (with Nacho Lovers, Freeform Five, and Li’ll Bo Tweak mixes) and they look BEAUTIFUL!!!
Purchase these now at Turntable Lab – here’s links to buy Gant-Man and Robotnick – and everywhere else fine vinyl is sold. If you own a store and want to put in a wholesale order, hit the jump for details. Read More
DJ Gant-Man’s remix of Maluca’s debut single “El Tigeraso” is out now on iTunes and it BANGS. Gant took it straight Humboldt Park with this one, a juked-out merengue rocket just right for the summer. Check Gant at the Juke Fest this weekend in Markham, IL info on his MySpace.
Check out this dope clip of DJ Gant-Man live in Paris for the Booty Call party, interspersed with some interview footage about Gant’s career and collabs. Edutainment! Also be sure to grab his “Juke Dat Girl” single with Nadastrom and Greenmoney remixes on iTunes, Beatport, and wherever else fine digital music is sold. Vinyl is on the way!
The calendar section coming up on our new website is gonna be crayjeeee, but until then the best place to keep up with tour dates for the whole Fool’s Gold family is our MySpace and Twitter, which we keep updated daily with the comings (ayo!) and goings of the FG fam. That said – we can’t neglect the regular ol’ blog neither!
Here’s a bunch of flyers for gigs coming up this weekend, including DJ Gant-Man and Jokers Of The Scene rocking separate parties in Chicago tonight (JOTS also hit SD on Saturday), LA Riots and Nick Catchdubs in NYC Friday along with Sammy Bananas with Switch in LA, Treasure Fingers in Vancouver and Andrew Ross of Nacho Lovers in Toronto that same night (he’s reunited with the other Nacho in Calgary Saturday), and of course the ‘Burger trio who stay hitting towns near you on the DAILY (including SF tonight with Trackademicks). Support real live DJs! Read More
We definitely believe in the power of smart partnerships and teamwork over at FG HQ, which is probably why one of our earliest outside supporters was fellow start-up RCRD LBL, who built their whole site around supporting artists and presenting great selections of free, authorized new music.
We’ve done free downloads and track debuts with RCRD LBL for almost as long as we’ve been a label ourselves, and this Tuesday (7.14) we’re linking up with them yet again for the 1st RCRD LBL “Friends & Family Meet Up” from 7-10pm at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. Reps from the family of labels involved on the site (Fool’s Gold, Ghostly, Warp, etc) will be premiering tons of brand new and unreleased music – and generally just kicking it – so come through and start your evening with us!
To get you psyched, hit the jump to download ALL of the free Fool’s Gold music available on RCRD LBL – tracks, remixes (our own as well as jams our artists have crafted for others), mixtapes and more. Over 50 tracks! Read More
