It just so happens that a bunch of DJ folks are in town tonight from the Fool’s Gold and Slow Roast famalam. And it just so happens that, a few blocks down from FG HQ, there is a spot called the Commodore with turntables and ample supplies of beer, nachos and chicken from their kitchen. Sooo… you might just wanna come through.

Ever since we first started Fool’s Gold, we always considered Diplo’s Mad Decent to be our brother label in the North American music/DJ scene, and the feeling was mutual. We would constantly brainstorm ideas for ways our two labels could work together, and one of the most fun was a Post-It Note that simply read “MAD FOOLS RAVE IN THE WOODS.” We’re not quite there yet, but we’re getting closer with next Sunday’s (7.20) free Central Park SummerStage show, the first annual “Mad Fools” featuring Santogold, Diplo, A-Trak, Kid Cudi, Mz Streams with DJ Blaqstarr, and surprise guests. Get ready! And get there early – there will be free shirts featuring the above artwork by Dust La Rock and Mike Jones of Mishka. Afterparty details soon…

We continue to Debo our way into the record industry with this week’s Billboard mag, where Fool’s Gold is named as one of ten “Indie Visionaries” in their first annual list, alongside not just other labels but managers, booking agents, websites and various “innovators taking risks and reaping rewards.” It’s always nice to be noticed! Read the whole article here, more big dog label news soon…
