Fool’s Gold is an army! The beloved Brooklyn imprint is more than just a record label, but a coalition of guerrilla DJs and like-minded party people. With FG’s new Night Shift compilation serving as their explosive mission statement, these midnight marauders will take their sound on the road for the annual “Gold Gone Wild” North American club tour, kicking off 5/5 in Denver, CO.
Headlined by Australian wildman Tommy Trash (whose own Luv U Giv Remixes EP drops this Friday, 4/8 on FG), “Gold Gone Wild” features a rotating cast of Fool’s Gold all-stars including Gladiator, Rome Fortune, Madeaux, Nick Catchdubs, Kittens and Shash’U. With FG captain A-Trak joining the fun on select dates, “Gold Gone Wild” is a can’t miss DJ trek like none other. Check full lineups and ticket info at foolsgoldrecs.com/goldgonewild. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 1pm EST.
Fool’s Gold redlines into spring with Night Shift, a 17 track compilation, of new dance music from the label’s latest signings and loudest family members. Since launching in 2007, the beloved Brooklyn indie founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs has pushed hybrid sounds to the forefront of the electronic scene. But Night Shift is the sound of a brand-new model year racing off the FG lot, shinier and heavier than ever. Listen to Night Shift now!
Montreal beat king Shash’U is back with a new video from his ultra-funky, ‘80s-inspired PWRFNK EP. Putting a playfully creepy spin on his roots in the professional street dance world, this body part-swapping clip takes viewers to “the lab” for real. Listen to PWRFNK now on all digital services, and get the limited-edition double vinyl (paired with Shash’U’s Thru Da Night EP) from the Fool’s Gold store.
Five cities, thousands of fans, a whole damn supergroup of artists and DJs… DAY OFF 2015 was the biggest Fool’s Gold festival trek yet! From Travi$ Scott lighting LA on fire to Skepta shutting down NYC, from 2 Chainz and Flosstradamus turning up in MIA to A-Trak scratching everywhere, the fam went in for real! Watch the full recap video above, hit fgdayoff.com for more, and stay tuned for next year’s edition (which is sure to be even crazier). Big thanks to our friends at Grand Marnier for helping make it all possible.
We brought the whole Fool’s Gold Sound Machine down to Miami for another epic DAY OFF! Rain or shine, it was a litstravaganza for the ages. A-Trak and Mannie Fresh B2B, bringing out 2 Chainz and Juvenile? Flosstradamus preaching turn-up gospel to the South Florida HDYNATION congregation, complete with Travis Porter on some live “Drop Top”? Not to mention Alison Wonderland and Laidback Luke throwing down intense DJ sets, Vic Mensa and Towkio repping SAVEMONEY onstage (and in the crowd), and Denzel Curry, D.R.A.M., Rome Fortune and tons more keeping it sweaty all day long.
Forever we love Atlanta! The 2nd ever ATL DAY OFF was a true celebration of Fool’s Gold fans, family… and hoverboards. Watch our official recap video above to see what happens when the whole city comes out to rock with us! (There’s also a full photo gallery up on the FG FB to enjoy, some of our favorite selections after the jump.)

From Outside Lands to iPhone ads, Giraffage is everywhere. His debut Fool’s Gold EP No Reason WiFi’ed glistening melodies and candy-painted basslines direct to your heart. Now it’s time for the new No Reason Remixes to get to work on the rest of your body, thanks to reconfigured versions from some of the coolest and most inventive names in dance and electronic music. GTA, Shash’U, Lindsay Lowend, Promnite, Maxo, Spazzkid and Qrion all put their spin on No Reason originals, pinballing from heavy-duty festival jams and club-ready explosions to juked out video game soundtracks and full-on IDM instrumentals. The matrix has never been this live!

Top it off with fresh label signings Rome Fortune, ManMan Savage, Bosco, Leaf, Hoodboi, Falcons and Shash’U and you’ve got an eclectic and electrifying lineup, in true Fool’s Gold style.
“DAY OFF is our culture. It’s where the full scope of Fool’s Gold comes together, it’s everything we represent. It doesn’t belong to one scene or another: DAY OFF is generational. We’ve watched it grow, step by step, with pride. I can’t wait to pull some more surprises this year!” – A-Trak
Tickets for all five DAY OFF events are available now at fgdayoff.com, along with recap videos and photos from the last five years of FGDO shows, featuring Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Run The Jewels, Juicy J, Young Thug, French Montana and many others. Read More
