With DAY OFF shows still ringing in their ears, Fool’s Gold keeps it lit with the Hangover EP from Black Dave. Channeling the NYC party animal vibes of vintage Beasties, rap (and skate) champ Dave brings amped-up energy to the mic while producer / DJ Nick Catchdubs provides C.H.U.D.-worthy subterranean bounce. (The free BitTorrent bundle also comes with remix stems for the title track.) Crush a can to this!
The surprise Boiler Room NYC launch party for Fool’s Gold’s Night Shift compilation was one of the livest parties of the year! We weren’t able to live stream the event from LPR, but absolutely had to archive the night for posterity. FG label family Brenmar (going b2b with DJ Sliink), BOSCO, Rome Fortune and Nick Catchdubs kept it lit all night, capped by special guest MadeinTYO skrrr skrrr-ing across the stage at the exact moment his “Uber Everywhere” took the city over. Check out the all sets after the jump and give Fool’s Gold Presents: Night Shift a spin now! Read More
A helicopter couldn’t stop DAY OFF! We lost our original venue a few hours before showtime, but the squad made it happen in Queens for one of our most unforgettable shows yet. Migos, A-Trak and Friends (including MadeinTYO, A.Chal, Wiki and more), Lil Yachty, Juelz Santana, Gaslamp Killer, Dave East, Nick Catchdubs, Meyhem Lauren, Leaf, Eauxzown and more put it down all day long. (Shout out to our Brunch Bounce and TMWRK fam too!)

The squad recuperates after a massive DAY OFF hangover!

Black Dave is NYC personified, a fixture in the music and skate worlds whose presence keeps the underground as lit as humanly possible. Fresh from ripping the stage at Fool’s Gold DAY OFF (and his Thrasher-approved part in Zoo York’s bone-crushing viral skate video NYBD), Black Dave drops his first official release on FG in the form of “Hangover,” produced by Nick Catchdubs. It’s the opening salvo from their collab EP of the same name, a collection of bass anthems and turn up tales from the city that never sleeps.
DAY OFF NYC is tomorrow! Don’t get caught without tickets for Migos, Juelz Santana, A-Trak & Friends, Lil Yachty and many, many, MANY more! Peep the set times below and get the last remaining tix at fgdayoff.com. We’ll see you on the east side at the 34th St Heliport, rain or shine!
With their massive DAY OFF NYC show only a few days away, Fool’s Gold founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs take PYRITE RADIO to a new level of jams and jokes. The duo hit FG’s Brooklyn store to tackle society’s pressing issues: bootleg Seinfeld merch, LA dating, Gucci Mane’s pantry, whether or not The Killers were any good, stealing snacks from will.i.am, and of course, Juicero™. Tune in and get loose. (Shout to Pedro on the vibes and Ysa Perez on the snaps!)
PYRITE RADIO returns! Fresh slaps, deep cuts and hot nonsense courtesy of Nick Catchdubs and friends at the Fool’s Gold store in Brooklyn. This week we learn about Pokemon on Metropolitan Ave and 50 Cent’s car, while Meyhem Lauren stops in on a break from tour to talk about his rap catalogue, fine silks, and graceful dance moves. Play loud… Read More

We’ll keep you posted on the next broadcast soon! Read More
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.
