We say this after every Labor Day… but this year’s Day Off was our absolute craziest yet! Thousands of party people took over 50 Kent to rock with Fool’s Gold family and friends. The day brought sets from Danny Brown, French Montana, A-Trak, Araabmuzik, The Lox, Brenmar, Hoodboi B2B Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World’s Fair, Nick Catchdubs feat B.I.C., Shash’u, Black Dave, GrandeMarshall, Cakes Da Killa and Ruff Ryders young’n Lil Waah. And let’s not forget the surprise guests! French Montana brought out BK’s own Bobby Shmurda, while A-Trak surprised the crowd with Remy Ma, Cam’ron, A$AP Nast, iLoveMakonnen, and Travi$ Scott, and Black Dave repped for the home team with Smoke DZA. Desus & Mero held us down on the host tip with their bodega stand up (complete with assists from Rosenberg, Miss Info, Ebro and the Hot 97 crew). It was truly one for the books…
It’s drink spillin’ time! Nick Catchdubs returns with new banger “Wuts That” featuring BX hooligans B.I.C., grab it on iTunes now (and everywhere else fine digital music is sold) alongside a breakbeat-heavy remix from Kraymer. Nick and B.I.C. tear down Webster Hall Studio this Friday (9/19) for the single release party, get your tix now. Catchdini will be also be performing solo at Fool’s Gold DAY OFF shows in LA and ATL, hit fgdayoff.com for all the details. And stay tuned for more music off Nick’s Smoke Machine LP as we get closer to its January ’15 release!
LA neighbors and bizarro beat aficionados Sinden & Astronomar are heading out on a mini-tour together starting Thursday in Seattle. They’ve put together a free EP for the occasion, premiered today on Do Androids Dance. For even more madness from these Fool’s Gold cousins, grab Sinden’s Ring Around The Moon EP (in original and remixed form) and Astronomar’s Clubhouse collab with CRNKN, “Young Mummy.”
DAY OFF NY was a blast this Monday, and those vibes are carrying us straight into our first ever Canadian DAY OFF, going down this Saturday (9/6) at Muzik Pool Bar in Toronto with A-Trak, Danny Brown, Lunice, Le1f, Tommy Kruise, Thugli, Nick Catchdubs, High Klassified, Sleepy Tom and surprise guests (you know how we do…)
Party Supplies is a NYC band like no other, dropping mind-melting rap beats one minute (like Action Bronson’s current single “Easy Rider” and the BET Hip Hop Award-nominatedBlue Chips 2) before turning around with jangly singalongs like brand new Soundcloud jam “Ohio” the next.
See PS in their element tonight (9/5) performing as part of Knitting Factory Broooklyn’s “Free Fridays” series with Papertwin and more. Check full show info here, and while you’re at it, grab PS’ Tough Love album now on iTunes (and stay tuned for limited edition vinyl and CD reissues coming this fall!)
