A few (crazy) weeks ago we took to the highways and byways of North America for the ROAD GOLD tour, in honor of our first ever compilation album. It was a Fool’s Gold soufflé. A b-boy bouillabaisse. A motherfucking techno gumbo of epic proportions!
From city to city, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and Telephoned teamed up in various combinations to rock the party. In LA we were even joined by special guests Just Blaze and Kid Sister! Party vibes were plentiful. But don’t take our word for it: peep the recap vid above, as well as some tour snapshots (and even more vids) after the jump. Read More
Check out the video for Sammy Bananas’ “life-step” remix of Restless People’s “United Feeling,” created by RP frontman (and noted visual / multimedia artist) Michael Bell-Smith. Download the track here. VIBES.
After a most triumphant weekend in Austin for SXSW, we’re bringing the party down to Miami! Come through this Saturday (3/26) to the Fool’s Gold showcase at Grand Central (we’re back!) featuring the whole fam and some special friends: A-Trak, Kenny Dope, Riva Starr, Just Blaze, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and…surprise guests? It’s free with RSVP, we’ll see ya there. Read More
Before the big FG Miami extravaganza this weekend, we figured why not warm things up with our friends?
RAP PARTY is just what you’d expect from the name: an afternoon of rap jams spun b2b from A-Trak and Craze, Busy P, Mehdi and Brodinski, Nick Catchdubs and Dave Nada, and Sammy Bananas and (Thee) Mike B. It goes down from 3-8pm at The Standard and is free with a donation to the Red Cross’ Japan relief efforts. We’ll see you there!
March madness! Like we always do at this time, Team FG is going to be bumrushing a music festival near you with some unforgettable parties featuring the whole fam.
First up, our annual SXSW bash, back at Austin’s Palm Door (remember this one?) on Friday, March 18th with A-Trak, Donnis, Cubic Zirconia, Danny Brown, The Suzan, AraabMuzik, Kingdom, Telephoned, Party Supplies and Nick Catchdubs on the decks between acts all night. It’s an official festival showcase, which means SXSW badges / wristbands get in free all night. (There will be some limited tix for sale at the door.)
The following weekend, we head down to Miami to once again tear the roof off our downtown home Grand Central, rolling with an insane roster of superfriends including A-Trak, Kenny Dope, Riva Starr, Just Blaze, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and…special surprise guests? Stay tuned! It’s free with RSVP.
You know we have some bonus beat surprises up our sleeves for both weekends too. As always, keep checking this here site for the latest announcements and updates. Read More
Sammy Bananas’ debut solo track (that’s him vocodering!) “Move Your Body” is available now on iTunes, Beatport, and everywhere else fine digital music is sold, backed by appropriately groovy remixes from Toy Selectah, Cassian and Smalltown Romeo.
But is that enough Sammy B for you? The answer is HELL NO of course! Mr Bananas has put together this “Move Your Body” mix stuffed with feel-good house vibes and much more. Download it now pon the SoundCloud.
After the OG version vocodered its way into your heart on the Fool’s Gold Vol 1compilation, it was only natural that Sammy Bananas’ debut solo track (that’s him singing!) “Move Your Body” gets the proper FG single treatment, which you can pick up now on Beatport.
“Move Your Body” comes backed by remixes from Cassian (whose disco take is already getting BBC radio love), Smalltown Romeo and Toy Selectah, who flips the synth pop workout into a signature “Ravertron” version, complete with new vocals en espanol (again, with Sammy B on the m-i-c). With the whole world going cumbia / moombahton crazy, what better time for some plantain vibes of our own? Preview Toy’s mix on RCRD LBL and be sure to cop all the other versions on the single.
As you may have heard, the FG ROAD GOLD tour is coming to a town near you, starting this Saturday (2/12) at Soundlab in Buffalo.
Check us accross the US and Canada: Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and Telephoned teaming up from city to city, with special guests Just Blaze and host-with-the-most Kid Sister joining us in LA for a very special Dance Right throwdown at La Cita.
