This weekend in Lausanne, Switzerland you can rock with our own Nick Catchdubs and a who’s who of FG friends and family (Sinden, Craze & Klever, Kill The Noise, Vega, Zombie Nation and more) at the annual Electrosanne festival. There Will Be Rave! Peep Catchy the night before at Club Juicy in Oslo.
Here’s some footage (shot by our dude Red Foxxworth no less) of Donnis’ mixtape release party under the Brooklyn Bridge. You had to have been there to feel the sweaty good vibes, but this gives you a little idea (plus Kid Sis + Nick Catchdubs check in with some cameo shouts). And if you haven’t grabbed Diary Of An ATL Brave yet… STOP SLEEPING! After the jump, check Donnis and Pill freestyling over “My Patna Dem” at East Village Radio. Read More
Last week Fool’s Gold was proud to take part in Converse’s 1st annual “Band Of Ballers” tournament. As player/GM (ha!) I put together a scrappy team including Donnis and soopamanager D Solo, Sammy Bananas, and DJ Jayceeoh. NCAA experience, mustaches, high socks – we had it all. A-Trak suited up like a French Canadian Pat Riley on the sidelines as coach, and we took on the competition with championship swag while Cipha Sounds soundtracked it Miss Info and FG fan Peter Rosenberg did play-by-play. Did I mention there were video girls? Spectacle.
Game 1 was a resounding FG victory against the Mad Decent team, followed by a Game 2 loss to Jim Jones and fam. We still made the semi-finals though, where team FG sweated out a heartbreaker of an overtime loss (the only game to hit sudden death!) to Pac Div. They in turn lost to Jimmy’s team in the finals. Ah well, there’s always the next tourney. We played hard, had fun, and came away with a year’s worth of bragging rights against Diplo. Twitter that!
This Saturday we’re rocking the rooftop pool of the Standard LA (Downtown) for the latest edition of Swimming With Sharks. Our pals Star Eyes, Drop The Lime and The Captain will be rocking for Trouble and Bass, and Nick Catchdubs will be repping FG on the decks alongside amped-up live performances from Trackademicks and Donnis.
