Our OZ homeboys Bag Raiders will be dropping their debut full-length LP on Modular this October. To get you hyped, check out the first single “Way Back Home,” which recently premiered on JJJ Radio in Sydney.
Bag Raiders’ Fool’s Gold EP Big Fun (featuring XXXChange and Jokers Of The Scene remixes and a Donnis collab) is out now on vinyl, iTunes, Beatport and all other fine digital retailers.
Maybe you remember Starlito from his stint as a pre-Young Money Lil Wayne associate who went by All Star Cashville Prince (yep, “Grey Goose”), or maybe you’ve picked up one of his critically acclaimed mixtapes (both new and old). Either way, dude has a certain something in the flow department, and he’s decided to lend it to Bag Raiders’ “Shooting Star,” which you can download here.

We definitely believe in the power of smart partnerships and teamwork over at FG HQ, which is probably why one of our earliest outside supporters was fellow start-up RCRD LBL, who built their whole site around supporting artists and presenting great selections of free, authorized new music.

Reps from the family of labels involved on the site (Fool’s Gold, Ghostly, Warp, etc) will be premiering tons of brand new and unreleased music – and generally just kicking it – so come through and start your evening with us!
To get you psyched, hit the jump to download ALL of the free Fool’s Gold music available on RCRD LBL – tracks, remixes (our own as well as jams our artists have crafted for others), mixtapes and more. Over 50 tracks! Read More
