The first full-length albums on FG are available for download today on iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold. Stop what you’re doing and grab Fool’s Gold Vol 1 (featuring new music from the whole fam) and Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat this second!
As you may have seen on Pitchfork today, our first-ever compilation LP, Fool’s Gold Vol 1 is making its way to you fine people of planet Earth on October 25th (same day as The Suzan LP – they both got bumped to Monday cause of Taylor Swift. Good looking out ma!)
The 14 new tracks on Fool’s Gold Vol 1 are a 3-D look at where FG has been and where we’re going next. “Ray Ban Vision,” A-Trak’s robot-rocking collab with G.O.O.D. Music upstart CyHi Da Prynce, sits comfortably next to Treasure Fingers’ joyous dance pop throwback “Keep Up” and The Suzan’s rollicking cover of Miike Snow’s “Animal,” along with new tracks from other exciting, constantly-evolving talents like Kingdom, Flosstradamus, and even Lil B, who teases his forthcoming EP with the #based bass of “Freeze.”
You will be able to download Vol 1 from all fine music retailers, as well as purchase a limited-edition CD copy (and other FG treats) at Opening Ceremony boutiques worldwide. We are immensely proud to share these new tracks from our family with all of you!

Here’s a new treat from Telephoned maestro Sammy Bananas in the form of an undeniably funky tribute to the pied piper of R&B. This club knocker has been the highlight of SB’s sets for the past few months, so he decided to share it with the world as a freebie while he prepares new Telephoned tunes as well as his solo single “Move Your Body,” which makes its debut on the Fool’s Gold Vol. 1 compilation LP, out this fall.
Hot off his warmly received, saxed-up version of “Paper Cat,” Sammy Bananas is back with more remix treats for ya. Click here to download his take on “Ghost” by NZ’s Kidz In Space, featuring Dan Black. There is a vocal and a dub version in the zip, so go nuts.
Check these great shots at Livin Cool from last week’s YoYo party in London featuring some of Fool’s Gold’s and Ed Banger’s finest! Telephoned play tonight in Sheffield, more Euro shows throughout the month.
This Thursday (6/10) our own Sammy Bananas and Telephoned will be performing at the always-jamming YoYo party at Notting Hill Arts Club in London. In a nice bit of timing, Busy P and Uffie will also be in the building, rocking for the Uffie album release. They’ll be joined by Ali Love along with the YoYo residents, Seb Chew and Leo Greenslade (one half of FG’s Greenmoney). Festivities! You don’t wanna miss this one.
Last month we hit up Miami for yetanother smash Fool’s Gold Winter Music Conference takeover!
Duck Sauce made their triumphant live DJ debut (which New Times named WMC’s best!), DJ Sneak, Just Blaze and (surprise surprise) Laidback Luke rocked guest sets, and the whole FG DJ family put it down like never before all night at brand-new venue Grand Central in downtown Miami. Check some highlights in our wrap-up clip (once again edited by Lizi Gross) and peep a TON of photo galleries – from GC as well as the Fool’s Gold x Mad Decent “Mad Fools” party later that weekend – after the jump.

About time! Like we do everyspring, the whole fam went down to Austin a few weeks back for SXSW. Our artists had tons of shows and guest sets to hit, but the pieces de resistance were the two FG events: the Texas Takeover at Republic Live, and the official FG SXSW Showcase at Malverde. Strictly best-of-the-best DJs, MCs, and even some new rock-n-rollers. Party! Whistles!
Check the highlight reel above (stitched together by our edit mistress Lizi Gross) and hit the jump for way more pics and video from our Texas tweekend. WMC up next! Read More
