We say this after every Labor Day… but this year’s Day Off was our absolute craziest yet! Thousands of party people took over 50 Kent to rock with Fool’s Gold family and friends. The day brought sets from Danny Brown, French Montana, A-Trak, Araabmuzik, The Lox, Brenmar, Hoodboi B2B Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World’s Fair, Nick Catchdubs feat B.I.C., Shash’u, Black Dave, GrandeMarshall, Cakes Da Killa and Ruff Ryders young’n Lil Waah. And let’s not forget the surprise guests! French Montana brought out BK’s own Bobby Shmurda, while A-Trak surprised the crowd with Remy Ma, Cam’ron, A$AP Nast, iLoveMakonnen, and Travi$ Scott, and Black Dave repped for the home team with Smoke DZA. Desus & Mero held us down on the host tip with their bodega stand up (complete with assists from Rosenberg, Miss Info, Ebro and the Hot 97 crew). It was truly one for the books…

Cole (Set 1 & Set 2),FRANK151, Nicky Digital, CMJ, Driven By Boredom, Societe Perrier, and Lyynks Music (as well as some Tumblr action from Mosaic New York, LIVETODESTROY, (7)Even, New NYer, CloudXI and Ralph Lorenzo).

While the music industry lounges through another off-season of vacation days and long weekends, Fool’s Gold has spent their summer adding a brand-new roster of DJ / producer superstars to the team. DRAFT PICKS announces this formidable squad to the world in the form of a free, downloadable BitTorrent Bundle of mp3s and digital collector cards for each artist (complete with highlight stats and stick of gum!).
From fresh finds and SoundCloud phenoms to established talents making big-league creative leaps, DRAFT PICKS features the most exciting and diverse lineup of DJs and producers currently working, all united together under the FG umbrella. Where else would Salva’s hyper club hybrids make sense against Shash’U’s “power funk”? TroyBoi’s widescreen trap epics vs Giraffage’s Tumblr-ready dreamscapes? Brenmar’s bass-fueled r&b hand in hand with High Klassified’s next level head nodders? Hoodboi’s frenetic remixes next to gLAdiator’s festival anthems? DRAFT PICKS is a 360 dunk of next-level dance music stopping all questions in their tracks.
Download DRAFT PICKS music and more at foolsgoldrecs.com/draftpicks, and see these artists live at all the Fool’s Gold DAY OFF events this year in New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Miami. Check fgdayoff.com for full lineups and ticket info. Read More

Los Angeles is home to some of the most innovative young club producers in the nation, and Hoodboi may be the most exciting of the bunch.
It’s easy to peg this internet hero as “mysterious,” though we prefer to say that he simply lets the music do the talking. With tracks as exuberantly melodic as they are straight-up banging, Hoodboi’s tunes feel equally at home in a Jersey basement or a Pokemon bonus level. It’s an all-in approach to dance music that’s won him early praise from like-minded artists (Diplo, Ryan Hemsworth, Cashmere Cat) and fueled his rapid ascent from Soundcloud to Coachella in a matter of months.
Fresh from a sold-out Asian tour with A-Trak and a fan-favorite remix of Chromeo’s hit “Jealous,” Hoodboi officially joins the Fool’s Gold family with a new EP due later this year. Meanwhile, get a taste of his signature sound right now with “Bugaboo,” twisting Destiny’s Child’s TRL gem into three minutes and twelve seconds of pristine, futuristic club music that will warm your emoji heart. Check out DJ Hooboi live in July, dates below.
