Brooklyn’s own Fool’s Gold Records takes their annual DAY OFF extravaganza cross country once again, closing out this year’s series of festival events with an all-day party on Sunday, September 25th at Shrine LA Outdoors.
Mac Miller headlines his first Los Angeles show of the year alongside G.O.O.D. Music president (and Clipse legend) Pusha T and FG’s own A-Trak, who’s hitting the decks with an “…and friends” guestlist that always amazes. DAY OFF LA will also feature upstart ATL phenom MADEINTYO, Fool’s Gold’s buzzy young R&B star Black Atlass, and the label’s resident DJ killers Madeaux, Kittens and Nick Catchdubs. And of course, you know it wouldn’t be a DAY OFF without a gang of surprises on deck…
This LA event caps a massive summer of DAY OFF shows for Fool’s Gold, including a New York event at the 34th St Helipad on 8/20 headlined by Migos and Juelz Santana, and a Miami blowout at Soho Studios on 9/17 with Joey Bada$$ and Hudson Mohawke topping a full day of performances from FG signees and some of the world’s most exciting new DJs and MCs. Advance tickets for all three DAY OFF events are available now at fgdayoff.com.

The DAY OFF MIA lineup is here and it’s innnnnnnsane! Our 2016 throwdown on Saturday, 9/17 is an all-ages event for the history books. Fool’s Gold’s BK neighbor and Pro Era general Joey Bada$$ headlines alongside A-Trak & Friends (will he top last year’s surprises of 2Chainz and Juvenile?) and Hudson Mohawke, fresh off supercharging Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo and Boys Noize’s latest LP. Young ATL heroes Playboi Carti and Lil Yachty set fire to the rap rulebook, FG sparkplugs Ape Drums and BOSCO & Speakerfoxxx provide tropical vibes, and turntable vets Nick Catchdubs and Damaged Goods keep the party going all day long.
Throw your hands in the air and jump around to “NRG,” the latest banger to hatch from the Duck Sauce studio speakers. As if the original wasn’t fun enough on its own, this delirious disco house hit comes backed by cranked up remixes courtesy dance music superteam Skrillex, Kill The Noise and Milo & Otis, as well as bass master Hudson Mohawke. Get ’em now on iTunes!
Cubic Zirconia vocalist Tiombe Lockhart just dropped a brand new solo single and video, the excellent “Can’t Get Enough,” produced by Hudson Mohawke. Watch the Fader-premiered vid (directed and edited by Tiombe and Thu Tran) and grab the song on iTunes. For more Tiombe, pick up CZ’s still-jamming Follow Your Heart LP, as well as the “Take Me High” single (with Bart B More remix) and Darko EP (with remixes from Tommy Trash and Tony Senghore).
Azealia goes all Harlem Zoo on us with this newly-leaked track, produced by Hudson Mohawke and our dude Nick Hook of Cubic Zirconia. And it’s sounding tough! Listen to it now, and check Nick DJing in Brooklyn tonight at Cameo with Michna and more, flyer after the jump.
If you still need some convincing, check out this megamix of FYH tracks put together by the one and only Hudson Mohawke. And peep the video for “Take Me High” (directed by CZ’s own Tiombe Lockhart) after the jump.
