Hit up URB Magazine’s “Best Of The Decade” survey to vote for Fool’s Gold as “Label Of The Decade” and A-Trak as “Artist Of The Decade” – lofty titles, to be sure, but hey!
You can also vote for A-Trak as “Artist Of The Year” and “Electronic Artist Of The Year” – as well as casting a ballot for Infinity +1 as “Compilation Of The Year” – in their 2009 Year End Readers Poll.
“Day N Nite” is up for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Solo Performance Grammy Awards this year. Fool’s Gold to real gold! Congrats to Kid Cudi (who’s also nominated for “Make Her Say”), Dot Da Genius, Plain Pat, Emile, Pro and everyone else on Team Cudder.
The Crookers remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day ‘N’ Nite” won Best Indie Dance/Nu Disco Track and A-Trak’s remix of Boys Noize’s “Oh” won Best Electro House Track in the 2009 Beatport Music Awards. Next year we’re gunnin for that Best Psy Trance!
Music-wise, A-Trak’s take on Boys Noize’s “Oh” is up for Best Electro House Track, and the Crookers remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day ‘N’ Nite” is up for Best Indie Dance/Nu Disco Track. On the artist tip, Bag Raiders and Chromeo are up for Best Indie Dance / Nu Disco Artist, Evol Intent (aka Treasure Fingers and pals) is up for best Drum N Bass Artist…and of course, you can put ANYONE from the FG fam as a write in vote for Most Influential Person. *AHEM* Make an old Goldbar’s dream come true…
