We celebrated three years of Fool’s Gold by closing out Pitchfork #Offline at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday, October 23rd 2010. It was a crazy evening of anniversary revelry, starring our friends and fam new and old: A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Donnis, CyHi Da Prynce, The Suzan, Kingdom, Araabmuzik on the MPC, and guest appearances by GZA of the Wu Tang Clan and this Kanye West fellow you might have heard of. OUR CHAIN HEAVY! Read More
Flashing Lights, the monthly dance party thrown by FG’s Nick Catchdubs, DJ Ayres and Jubilee, turns two this Friday (10/8) at Public Assembly in Brooklyn. FL has hosted many Fool’s Gold guests over the past two years, and this one is no exception: Nacho Lovers will be crossing the border to house up the birthday vibes, joined by fellow Torontonian Grahmzilla, who will be tag-teaming with Jubilee as part of their group, Bassanovva. The two have put together a mix of originals, remixes and other fresh tracks to get you excited for the party, including the Nacho Lovers remix of forthcoming Bassanovva single “Terrordactyl” on Sinden’s Grizzly imprint. It’s a family affair!

As you saw in the video for “Barbra Streisand,” our inaugural Day Off party on Labor Day in NYC was beyond crazy. Guest raps from Yelawolf, Pill and Donnis, DJ sets from The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak & Dave1), Just Blaze, the Slow Roast crew (Craze, Klever & Kill The Noise) and Nick Catchdubs, and a live performance by The Suzan…the whole fam put it down!
Thanks to the crew at City Winery and all our production / promotion partners Scion, Jelly NYC, The FADER, LTD+, and Bushmills, all the FG soopa interns, and a giant Mr Goldbar bear hug to FG homegirl Dnyce for all her help behind the scenes. We’ll be back with more parties very soon! After the jump, some of our favorite Day Off moments. Read More
Catchy goes intercontinental this week for shows in Hong Kong, Singapore, Bali, Seoul, Busan and Beijing (the last show is a blowout for the Intel/Vice Creators Project, which you may remember from their FG feature earlier this summer). As a parting gift, he left us this new mix Round’n Round’n Round’n Round’n Round’n, which you can download from SoundCloud. Tracklist after the jump.
Putting a giant exclamation point on another summer of smash singles and packed-out parties across the country, Fool’s Gold – the trendsetting indie label founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs – is throwing a free DAY OFF party on Labor Day.

Thanks to everyone who braved the elements with us last Sunday for “Pool’s Gold” at the Jelly Pool Party, and came out soggy-but-smiling on the other end after rocking with Chromeo, Kid Sister, The Suzan and Telephoned.
No column today, but to make up for it we’re droppin beats once again at Beauty Bar in Chicago! Come on and get down with Nick Catchdubs! Chi-town RAT residents Flosstradamus will be traveling, but local beatmeisters Capcom and Hiroki will be on the set to help hold it down.
