All summer Jelly NYC has been throwing their free Pool Parties down at East River Park in Williamsburg. On Sunday, August 22nd we’re proud to present an all-FG takeover, which we’re proudly dubbing Pool’s Gold, because, well, why the hell not?
Get their early to stake your claim in front of the stage for the supa sounds of Chromeo, Kid Sister, The Suzan and Telephoned, with deejay sets by Treasure Fingers and Kingdom keeping it moving all day long. Then we head over to Brooklyn Bowl for an afterparty with Nick Catchdubs and Vin Sol on beat duties. See you there!
Longtime FG homie Vin Sol (of CALiGULA) recently made the leap from his native SF to good ole Brooklyn. Which means hangin out on the reg, good times on the reg, records on the reg!
His “Swap Meet Heat” mix for the Foolcast collects some of his favorite 12″ finds dug up since the big move (and spending every weekend hitting flea markets with Dust La Rock). It’s an extremely tasty collection of disco nugs, forgotten pop, jheri curl r&b, and more – it’s not about obscure records, just fun ones, which has always been an essential component of the Fool’s Gold approach to music.
Subscribe to the Foolcast via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader at the main Foolcast page, where you can also download the mix directly (right click and save-as). Check Vin rocking a party near you, and check his tracklist after the jump. Read More
As we mentioned earlier, Chromeo bring their signature robofunk to NYC next Friday with an intimate Irving Plaza show. But if R Kelly has taught us anything (and lets be honest, he has taught us many things), after the show it’s the after party – which in this case is a FG-presented evening at Webster Hall featuring DJ sets from Chromeo, our very own Kingdom, and longtime homie (and new BK neighbor) Vin Sol. Not to be missed! It’s only $1 before midnight with RSVP.
For more Chromeo goodies, check out DJ Anonymous’ blog for his extended “disco edit” of “Night By Night” and hit Green Label Sound for the original + a brand new Skream remix of “Night By Night.” Or hell, why not just grab it from this gigantic embedded widget!
Last Thursday’s “Best Of The Beast” opening was the place to be, as a couple hundred of our best friends and fam came out for Fool’s Gold art director Dust La Rock’s debut solo show. Queen Majesty, Vin Sol, Nick Catchdubs and Dave1 spun the tunes, Red Stripe and Vitamin Water provided refreshments, Fader debuted their new issue, Worship Worthy made sure everything ran smoothly and a literal who’s who of NYC’s creative community brought infinite good vibes to celebrate one of their own.
