Congrats to Trackademicks (pictured above at the photo shoot for his forthcoming Fool’s Gold 12″), who was just honored with a 2008 “Goldie” Award from the SF Bay Guardian in their Best Of The Bay issue. You can read the full story here. More from Track at his blog, including new remixes, a Cure “Lovecats” cover with 1 O.a.K., and more.
As we continue on… the Scion/FG Fool’s Gold Remixed tour rolls into Philly tonight with Sammy Bananas, Trackademicks, Nacho Lovers and Treasure Fingers rocking the Barbary, and then finishes up in Baltimore on Wednesday with Sammy, Nick Catchdubs, Trackademicks, and Jokers Of The Scene at Ottobar. Both shows are FREE with RSVP! Get your names in and get more info at www.scion.com/avrelease.
We threw our 2nd annual CMJ showcase (and one-year anniversary party!) this past Thursday at Webster Hall in NYC. There was much cake, revelry and tunes from the crew, here’s the photo galleries and related linkery:
My personal highlights include Nacho Lovers playing Circle Children’s “Zulu” while giving Armand a pound, Gant-Man’s epic hypeman skills keeping up with Kid Sister’s set, Dave1′s extra dapper suit, and of course being able to rock with practically the whole FG fam (Nachos, JOTS and Trackademicks stuck around all CMJ weekend so we’ve been handling photo shoots and meetings alongside late night ridiculousness and more food than I’ve ever eaten in my life. Call me Nick Fatdubs). Special shout-out to Scion for sponsoring the show and to Kenny and the whole Webster Hall team for making sure our champagne glasses were filled up.
NYC get psyched! Continuing our annual tradition, the whole fam touches down in NYC on Thursday, October 23rd for the FOOL’S GOLD CMJ SHOWCASE AND ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY!
Grab your advance tickets here to check out Kid Sister (debuting tracks off her new album Dream Date), A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Jokers Of The Scene, Trackademicks, Nacho Lovers, Sammy Bananas, and Nick Catchdubs, as well as a special DJ set from Fool’s Gold big bro Dave 1 of Chromeo… and perhaps a special guest or two?!?
The latest cut to be blessed with the Trackademicks touch is Janelle Monae’s “Many Moons.” You might have heard Ronson, A-Trak and myself bantering over it on East Village Radio this past Friday, and now you can watch the remix video and download the mp3. Ayo technology!
The cat’s out of the bag, we have a brand new compilation out this October, and it’s free!
Fool’s Gold Remixed is a two-CD behemoth we’re releasing with the good people at Scion Audio/Visual. Disc One features brand-new remixes of Fool’s Gold artists by everyone from Chromeo to Surkin to Jori Hulkkonen, while Disc Two is a “24 Karat Hits” mix by FG co-founder Nick Catchdubs (hi mom) featuring some of our biggest tracks from the past year.
You’ll be able to purchase the remixes from all fine digital retailers starting October 14th, and pick up physical copies for free at various Scion dealerships, parties and sponsored events…including our four-city Fool’s Gold Remixed promo tour, which hits Miami, Atlanta, Philly and Baltimore starting October 21st. The rotating lineup includes Jokers Of The Scene, Treasure Fingers, Trackademicks, Nacho Lovers, Sammy Bananas and Nick Catchdubs, and entry is free with RSVP – check you there!
