Fool’s Gold is an army! The beloved Brooklyn imprint is more than just a record label, but a coalition of guerrilla DJs and like-minded party people. With FG’s new Night Shift compilation serving as their explosive mission statement, these midnight marauders will take their sound on the road for the annual “Gold Gone Wild” North American club tour, kicking off 5/5 in Denver, CO.
Headlined by Australian wildman Tommy Trash (whose own Luv U Giv Remixes EP drops this Friday, 4/8 on FG), “Gold Gone Wild” features a rotating cast of Fool’s Gold all-stars including Gladiator, Rome Fortune, Madeaux, Nick Catchdubs, Kittens and Shash’U. With FG captain A-Trak joining the fun on select dates, “Gold Gone Wild” is a can’t miss DJ trek like none other. Check full lineups and ticket info at foolsgoldrecs.com/goldgonewild. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 1pm EST.
Fool’s Gold redlines into spring with Night Shift, a 17 track compilation, of new dance music from the label’s latest signings and loudest family members. Since launching in 2007, the beloved Brooklyn indie founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs has pushed hybrid sounds to the forefront of the electronic scene. But Night Shift is the sound of a brand-new model year racing off the FG lot, shinier and heavier than ever. Listen to Night Shift now!
