Our very first European label tour kicks off this week in Hamburg, then continues across the continent with A-Trak, Jokers Of The Scene, Congorock and Greenmoney forming like rave Voltron from city to city. If we skipped your town on this inaugural run, don’t worry, there’s more where this came from (plus – the limited Dust La Rock-designed tour tees will be up on the FG webstore for everyone to cop, regardless of locale).
Congorock’s Japan tour kicks off this weekend and it has its own commercial! (Doesn’t it remind you of the “Space Shower TV” segments from old Nirvana tapes?) Click here for flyer / dates, plus his recently leaked Crookers collab “Sbombers.”
Check out the newly launched Congorock.com for the latest and greatest from our boy Rocco, including Australia tour diaries, upcoming dates, and mp3 surprises like this collaboration with Crookers entitled “Sbombers” that was originally slated for the Crooks’ Grand Theft Auto radio channel, but ended up as a web treat instead.
For more Congorock (and Crookers) goodies, listen into this Mischief Night guest spot from Shark on The Fader’s “The Let Out” on East Village Radio. Yelling! And if you’re in Japan this month, check Congorock on tour – flyer after the jump. Read More
It’s a nice little snapshot of where Rocco’s been going in the studio as of late, more new jams from him very soon. Meanwhile, head over to his Tumblr to check upcoming tour dates in Europe and Australia for October, along with all sorts of random visual goodies.
Congorock is currently bopping around Europe on a festival tour, and Diesel U Music recently caught up with him and had some nice things to say (“CONGOROCK WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY!”). You can also hear his remix work on the latest Crookers.net Micromix. More from Rocco on this here blog very soon!
Congorock is halfway thru his quickie North American tour, leaving a neon trail of dead wherever he goes. Check this vid from Cinespace last night where he debuts his blistering new remix for Fukkk Offf (and reps Los Crudos!) Our boy Rocco will be smashing El Paso tomorrow, Denver Thursday, and San Diego Saturday so be sure to catch him while you can.
Lock up your daughters and hide your Genesis games, Congorock is hitting our shores for some shows in Canada, Cali and elsewhere this week and next. Full dates after the jump. As mentioned in a recent interview, he’s got a bunch of new remixes in the bag (including a banger for Fukkk Offf that you may have heard various FG DJs teasing in their sets lately) as well as tracks from his next Fool’s Gold single, so come out when he’s in town and break yr ravebone with that new new!

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.
We’ve done free downloads and track debuts with RCRD LBL for almost as long as we’ve been a label ourselves, and this Tuesday (7.14) we’re linking up with them yet again for the 1st RCRD LBL “Friends & Family Meet Up” from 7-10pm at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. 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
