Earmilk just dropped a new Q&A with FG co-founder and party man par excellence Nick Catchdubs. They talk musical roots and more, and also give away The Bubblegum EP, a new batch of bootlegs by Catchy and fellow Brooklynite 2Beeps, who call it “SO SO DEF GLOWSTICK ALLSTARS. EDM JEEP BEATS. TOP 40 RAVE-N-B.” If that’s not enough, Earmilk is also giving away passes to next weekend’s Electric Zoo festival in NYC, featuring a full Fool’s Gold Clubhouse stage of awesomeness. Go win!
DC’s Steve Starks joins the Clubhouse with his radioactive slow roller “What U Got.” Built tough for rattling skulls, trunks and rumps alike, it’s a synthy beast you need in your life. Grab it now at foolsgoldrecs.com/clubhouse!
Some people prefer the fish, others the house mafia, but for our money THE best Swedish export is none other than Carli, a true master of club music and all-around groovy dude. His second FG smash The Weekender is out now, and to celebrate he put together this megamix of exclusive edits and current DJ favorites for the Foolcast.

Party Supplies is the American Dream. It is the sound of Justin Nealis, producer behind critically-acclaimed rap collabs with Action Bronson (Blue Chips) and Danny Brown (“Grown Up”) setting up a mic stand behind his MPC and strapping on a Stratocaster. Joined by multi-instrumentalist Sean Mann, the two write classic rock from the future. Half Chromeo, half Easy Rider, the Brooklyn duo drop blue collar funk, school gym foot-stompers, and yearning city boy ballads over drum machine beats on their forthcoming Fool’s Gold debut album, Tough Love. Inhale and salute. Check out “Beautiful Girl” and peep the Tough Love tracklist after the jump.
“Party Alarm” is five minutes of professional grade loudness from Boulder’s own Dirt Monkey, featuring insane horn chops, ADDHD kick drums, and a (very necessary) screaming dude. Unclassifiably heavy and awesome festival music: it’s what Clubhouse was built for! Grab it for free, check recap vids and more over at foolsgoldrecs.com/clubhouse.
A few weeks ago, BK club kings and longtime FG friends The Rub dropped their first EP of original tunes, and have just followed it up with a remixed edition, featuring even more fam (like Trackademicks, XXXChange, Natalie Storm) up in the party. Check it out now! (And for more vibes, grab The Rub’s contribution to our Foolcast mix series).
