It’s a celebration, beeeeches. We’re four! And like we do every year around this time, we’re throwing a party to commemorate another year of label-dom. The Fool’s Gold 4 Year Anniversary party is going down Saturday, October 22nd at Tribeca Grand in NYC. It’s FREE, and will feature performances by our FG fam, friends and even Mr Thugged Out Millatainment himself, N.O.R.E. (WHAT WHAT!)
This Saturday (10/8) come hit the Fool’s Gold booth at the Independent Label Market in Brooklyn, where we’ll be selling vinyl, CDs, tees, merch and more alongside our buds from DFA, 4AD, XL, Domino and many more.
“Will there be special goods and surprises” you ask? Why certainly. By popular demand, we pressed up a bunch of 12″s people have been asking us for: Congorock “Babylon” with remixes by Proxy and Riton, Treasure Fingers “Keep Up” with remixes by Kenny Dope and Jackson, and KLAM (aka rave legends Kicks Like A Mule) “Funky 4” with remixes by Hot City and the Martin Brothers. The one and only Party Supplies is going to stop by with his MPC. Keeping with the theme of label heads slanging their own wares, Nick Catchdubs will be manning the booth all day. And more…
To get you in the mood, check out this playlist of tracks from the participating labels. Cubic Zirconia is repping for FG with “Take Me High.”
