Iconic New York indie label Fool’s Gold (that’s us) spent the past decade smashing hip hop and electronic scenes together. Now it celebrates with a full year of events that take the imprint’s DIY, party-starting spirit to the next level. Founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs in 2007, Fool’s Gold has defined a generation of North American electronic and hip hop music: when Kid Cudi hit your MySpace top 8, Duck Sauce soundtracked your first festival, and Danny Brown shoved you face first into the outer limits of rap, the FG logo was right behind it, armed with a devotion to fresh talent and new sounds.

With their massive DAY OFF NYC show only a few days away, Fool’s Gold founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs take PYRITE RADIO to a new level of jams and jokes. The duo hit FG’s Brooklyn store to tackle society’s pressing issues: bootleg Seinfeld merch, LA dating, Gucci Mane’s pantry, whether or not The Killers were any good, stealing snacks from will.i.am, and of course, Juicero™.

Mac Miller headlines his first Los Angeles show of the year alongside G.O.O.D. Music president (and Clipse legend) Pusha T and FG’s own A-Trak, who’s hitting the decks with an “…and friends” guestlist that always amazes. DAY OFF LA will also feature upstart ATL phenom MADEINTYO, Fool’s Gold’s buzzy young R&B star Black Atlass, and the label’s resident DJ killers Madeaux, Kittens and Nick Catchdubs. And of course, you know it wouldn’t be a DAY OFF without a gang of surprises on deck…
