As you eagerly count down the minutes in your cubicle (or kick back stealing wireless in your shared bohemian “artist” dwelling) waiting for the weekend to begin so you can go all Loverboy on its ass, we figured the least we could do is type up a handy guide to all the Fool’s Gold-related events popping off around the globe over the next few days, so you know exactly where to go and what to do.

We have a nice likkle label profile in the latest issue of Dazed And Confused in the UK. Find it on fine newstands everywhere, or just read the pithy quotes from me, Dust and Trizzy in the enlarged scan here.
Last week I started a new weekly in Brooklyn called FLASHING LIGHTS with my main d’amies DJ Ayres and Jubilee. The first one featured Klever as a special guest and was fun as hell (pics here), but I forgot to post the flyer on the FG blog beforehand. D’oh! Never again! The next few editions are going to be just as dope, and to go along with it, the three of us whipped together this promo mix featuring some of the tunes we’re dropping at the party – which is FREE every Friday night @ Public Assembly on North 6th St in Brooklyn (aka the old Galapagos). Download the mix here and check the tracklist after the jump. Read More
My latest mixtape, long in the making. In case you can’t tell, it’s an all-alt rock affair. Physical promo copies are going out to all Mishka retail accounts w/ their fall orders, and it’s free for everyone on the interweb as of this morning.
Tomorrow (8.26) at Las Vegas’ Jet @ the Mirage, Fool’s Gold’s own Treasure Fingers and Nick Catchdubs will be spinning streetwear jamz at the Triple 5 Soul x Vapors x BPM party for the MAGIC tradeshow, alongside good buds Steve Aoki and Peanut Butter Wolf. It’s free with RSVP, so send em in!
Two new free mixes from yours truly have dropped over the past few days.
First up is Slick, a bunch of uptempo tracks i’ve been playing lately (and morphs into some dubstep shit and weird rap at the end). Grab it and check the Q&A and track explanations over at Trash Menagerie.
Brand new as of this morning is Kizzaland, the debut mixtape I put together for Timbaland’s new artist Izza Kizza. Just sent an email to my boy calling it “country rap tunes…in space,” which sounds about right. Goes everywhere from abstract clubby shit to intensely personal, funny/sad storytelling – download and give it a listen! UPDATE: old zShare went dead, here’s a new link.
Come to Trophy Bar tonight (7.25) to see me and Sammy get busy (and Dust get dizzy), it’s sure to be another fun one! Trophy is on 351 Broadway in Williamsburg, BK – take the JMZ to Marcy or Hewes, G to Broadway or L to Lorimer and walk on over.
This Thursday (7.17) in NYC, come check out Kid Cudi and celebrate the release of his new mixtape A Kid Named Cudi at the Red Bull Space in NYC. 10.Deep pressed up physical CDs and made some limited edition shirts to go along with the mix, Heineken and Belvedere brought the beverages, Nick Catchdubs, Plain Pat and 88 Keys will be providing the tunes, and Cudi will be performing. RSVP here, check out the rest of the flyer, tracklist, and shirt after the jump. Read More
