Extra! Extra! This summer I’m taking a horse and carriage across this fine continent and will circumnavigate it with the help of Rye Rye and Treasure Fingers in an operation that I call the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour. There are also some festivals and Bacardi B-Live dates mixed into the timeline so with all that combined I very well might be hitting YOUR town! Expect the unexpected, this will not be like your average club gig. Check the dates after the jump. Read More
Only a few nightspots in the world truly qualify as “superclubs,” and in that subcategory fewer still match up to Pacha. They have the awards to prove it! Real ones they give out in Eebeetha! Basically what we’re saying is that if you’re down for an extra-big night of oontz oontz oontz, they got you – which is why it’s so cool that our dude Treasure Fingers is infiltrating Pacha NYC this Friday (playing alongside Benny Benassi, obviously no stranger to that world…) and entry is free before midnight if you RSVP. Treasure Fingers will be on the decks from 11pm-1am, we’ll catch you there.
“I’ll House You” is a brand-new Kid Sister track, recorded specially for Reebok’s Classic Remix project. The sneaker giant commissioned re-interpretations of beloved throwback tunes by current artists, and Kid Sis’ personal contribution is a take on the seminal Jungle Brothers / Todd Terry hip-house track “I’ll House You.” Fellow FG fam Treasure Fingers provides the beat (his ATL strip club roots are showing!) and the whole thing enjoyably connects the dots between two generations of uptempo club rap. Stream it here and get download codes at your neighborhood Foot Locker.
This year’s edition of the Fool’s Gold WMC Spectacular was our second consecutive year tearing down White Room in downtown Miami, and we finally got back all the pics and video documenting the fun-splosion. After a packed weekend of shows, we started the day bum rushing the Stones Throw pool party, killed a giant family dinner at the steakhouse, then hit the clurb. Along with all the FG fam rocking on stage (Sammy Bananas, Nick Catchdubs, Treasure Fingers, Jokers Of The Scene and Nacho Lovers – who took over the whole side room for a night of deeeeeeep house and techno) we played host to special guests Steve Aoki, DJ Mehdi, a rare Annie Mac x Fake Blood tag team, and hometown hero Craze, who ended his set by rocking with A-Trak in an epic impromptu scratch session.
We went the whole night long, staying packed long after the other shows closed down (and gave us second and third winds as the party people trickled in). Check the pics and video after the jump, and Ian Meyer’s full photo gallery here. Also peep A-Trak and Mehdi’s solo blog recaps. Read More
For an upcoming Reebok x Foot Locker campaign, Kid Sister re-interpreted the Jungle Brothers (and Todd Terry!) classic “I’ll House You,” with none other than Treasure Fingers on the beat. Their new version will be dropping very soon, meanwhile here’s a little promo vid about the Reebok campaign – Kidz In The Hall kicked it off a month or so ago, and B.O.B. is up next.
The Fool’s Gold After Dark showcase in Austin last week was insane in every possible way, from the turnout (line down the block and around the corner all night!) to the tunes, as the whole roster dropped stellar sets packed with new joints and dence detonators. Even when the sound unceremoniously got cut during Mehdi’s set due to arcane Austin liquor laws, he still managed to smash it! Kid Cudi came through and surprised us with a quick set, fans and well-wishers included everyone from Clinton Sparks and Steve “Buddy” Aoki to MCs like Curren$y, Mistah FAB and Izza Kizza, and an amazing time was had by all.
Thanks to everyone at Scion, Palm Door/Beauty Bar and Red Stripe for lending a hand, and thanks to all the shutterbugs who put their pics on Flickr to make this wrapup possible, Catch lost his camera while crowdsurfing shirtless later in the week (smoove….) but the FG Flip cam made it back alive with video.
If you have more pics or video from the night, send em in! (Update:like this!) Now hit the jump for the goods! See you next year AWWWWWWstin! Read More
Along with our own Saturday night megashowcase at White Room, the members of the Fool’s Gold family will be performing at a litany of other events throughout WMC this weekend, everything from afternoon pool parties to all-rap throwdowns to Fergie’s birthday (seriously, JOTS are gonna take lady lumps to the rave cave). Check the full listing after the jump.
