Time for one of my long-winded tour novelas. I recently wrapped up a European tour that spanned the whole month of May, one which I arbitrarily named the Upper Crust Tour at the last minute, in honor of that beloved chain of sandwich shops found in almost all train stations. After doing a whole bunch of tours with other people — the Fool’s Gold fam, Mehdi, Kanye, etc — I felt like going off to clubland (Europe) and back to raw DJing practically every night for 4 weeks. Of course I wasn’t literally by myself the whole month. In most cities I was sharing bills with friends from either continent. But it did feel like a pilgrimage to the land of the DJ, and on off-days I would often link up with other producers and work on music. I loved it. I started a Flickr page towards the beginning of my trip so you can catch my full set of pics here. Let’s dive into it. Read More
Woah internet! The recent vintage clips from Coachella keep on stumbling into our lives. Go check out these Q&As with Treasure Fingers, Flosstradamus and XXXChange (not to mention Bonde Do Role, Holy Ghost and Cut Copy) at the Boosted blog, filmed during our pool party a few weeks back. It was the best of times, it was the blurst sunburntest of times…
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).
This weekend the Fool’s Gold fam heads down to Austin TX with the rest of our flower sniffin, kitty pettin, corporate rock friends to perform at the SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST FESTIVAL OF MUSICS. Sun! Suds! Serato! Our first ever official SXSW showcase on Saturday night at Volume is the highlight of course (SXSW badges only, limited amounts of tix on sale at the door so get there early!), but there are a number of FG-related events popping off throughout the week check them all after the jump.

This weekend Kid Sister and I went to Puebla, Mexico for the MX Beat Festival. We were joined by the one and only Kid Brother, Young Josh (as seen in the “Beeper” video). Josh actually played at the same festival a week prior in Guadalajara with my brother. Confused yet? Good. Read More
Ladies and gents! Fool’s Gold is proud to announce two new releases, the long-awaited debut singles from Kid Cudi and Jokers of the Scene. Cudi’s hypnotic “Day ‘N’ Nite” comes backed with a thumping JOTS remix along with b-side “Dat New ‘New’” while the Jokers’ own “Y’all Know The Name” features two remixes from Flosstradamus and Nacho Lovers along with their club smash “Juggle It.”
You can grab both from Turntable Lab (and other fine vinyl retailers) as well as iTunes, Juno, and pretty much everywhere else digital music is sold (we’ll update the links as the releases go live – hit us up if your preferred spot doesn’t have it, and we’ll get it figured out).
We’ll be dropping the Crookers remix of “Day ‘N’ Nite” and the William Russell remix of “Juggle It” as free promo mp3s on RCRD LBL over the next few days, so keep checking back…
