The wax is accompanied by a 32 page booklet featuring original artwork and A-Trak’s behind-the-scenes stories on each remix, making In The Loop a must have for any FG fan, #RealDJing enthusiast or forward-thinking music lover in your life.

Nick Hook is NYC’s waviest resident: an in-demand collaborator, producer extraordinaire, and all around provider of vibes who’s lent his touch to projects from Run The Jewels, Young Thug, and countless others, all while building a creative community around his studio, thespacepit, in Greenpoint. Now the redheaded kingpin steps forward with his Relationships LP on Fool’s Gold, a 16 track album of collaborations that are unconventional, unexpected and all-the-way live (literally: each song was recorded in-person with Nick behind the boards, a refreshing move in the email verse era).
Featuring a festival-worthy lineup of new school rap upstarts (21 Savage, Novelist, ILoveMakonnen) and fellow beat radicals (Prefuse 73, Hudson Mohawke, the late DJ Rashad), Relationships isn’t just the world’s greatest party guestlist, but a chronicle of Nick’s year long, after-midnight vision quest—the sound of a producer breaking through the chrysalis, killing the ego, and raising the bar. Put your phone down and dive in.
We’re moving! A bigger and better Fool’s Gold headquarters will make a grand debut in Brooklyn early next year. But in the meantime, our years of foolin’ on 536 Metropolitan Ave must come to a close this Monday (10/31). Come celebrate with a blowout sale all Halloween weekend — we’re slashing prices like Freddy on merch, music, and more, including rare pieces from the FG archives.
Get pumped for some alphabet aerobics with Tommy Trash & TAISUN’s body moving new IOUE Remixes EP. No matter your party particulars, this squad has it covered… LO’99 brings the jackin’ robot vibes, FG young guns GLD head straight for the mosh pit, Infuze puts his footwork shoes on, QUIX gets trappy, Dual Color bring the breaks, and Stefan Engblom closes out strong with some sparkler-ready house action. Spelling has never been this live!
SLUGGERS flip Sunshine State vibes like a photonegative, crafting some of this year’s deepest, dankest dance records in the process. Their hit Fool’s Gold Clubhouse single “Courtesy / HYPR” earned them support from big dogs like A-Trak, Diplo and Skrillex and standout slots at Ultra, EDC and other global dance festivals. But Anthemis the anonymous crew’s heaviest mission statement to date, a five-track love letter to bass in all its forms. From the skull-rattling title track to the sinister, droning vibes of “Doses,” MIA nightlife has never sounded so wonderfully dark.
Watch out for flying limbs when GLD throw Tommy Trash and TAISUN’s “IOUE” straight into the mosh pit. Check out more remixes of this dance hit from LO’99, Infuze, QUIX, Dual Color and Stefan Engblom, out 10/28 on Fool’s Gold.
Who needs cake when you’ve got a pole? Brooklyn’s own Fool’s Gold will toast to nine (!!!) years of new music and unforgettable parties, returning to Club Lust Gentlemen’s Club for another birthday bash not to be missed. (Ask Alexander Wang about last year’s celebration!)
Wu Tang legend and NY rap icon Raekwon headlines alongside electric new Fool’s Gold signing K$ace. The turntables will stay lit all evening thanks to Travis $cott’s DJ OG Chase B, GHE20G0TH1K queen Venus X, and Club Lust’s resident party champ DJ SpinKing. And of course A-Trak and the FG family will be hosting all night long.
Get your tickets now and we’ll see you Saturday, 11/12 at Club Lust in Brooklyn. Keep your ATM card handy…
Tommy Trash and TAISUN have enlisted a murderers’ row of remixers for their new single “IOUE.” LO’99 strikes first with heavy duty, jackin’ robot vibes — play it loud and stay tuned for more “IOUE” remixes from GLD, Infuze, QUIX, Dual Color and Stefan Engblom out this Friday (10/28) on Fool’s Gold!
Laval, Quebec’s own prince of bass High Klassified returns to his Kronostasis EP (SOCAN’s Best Electronic Release of 2016) to create a wonderfully surreal video for “Gold” featuring Mick Jenkins. However, the beloved Chicago MC is nowhere to be found in director Rachid Allaoua’s dreamlike clip; instead, High Klassified stars in an engrossingly strange love story, soundtracked by Mick’s heartfelt vocals (“I got gold all in my skin / water in my eyes”) and HK’s futuristic thump.
Brooklyn producer Nick Hook teams up with ATL mystery man 24hrs for the slinky “Gucci’s,” taken from Nick’s Relationships album, out 11/1. True to the LP’s collaborative spirit, “Gucci’s” is unexpectedly catchy and greater than the sum of its parts; alien vocal processing meets trunk decimating bass, resulting in what may become the first improvised analog synth jam to make Magic City rotation.
