Enjoy and check Craze (along with pals 12th Planet, Star Eyes and more) when he hits Webster Hall in NYC tonight. $1 before midnight w/ RSVP! Read More
Slow Roast is the new, FG-distributed label from our homies Kill The Noise and Craze. The dynamic duo (and friends) have cooked up some heavy choons for you guys over the past few months, and they’ll start dropping very, very soon. To whet your appetite, they launched their inaugural “Hogcast” series with a minimix from Craze, an extended mix from KTN, a bunch of interview stuff, and more.
Download Hogcast #1 at Media Contender, and read a Q&A with Craze about the label’s origins while you’re at it. If you’re in Austin this week, be sure to come rock out at Slow Roast’s first ever SXSW party (3-8pm on Friday 3/19 @ Barcelona), featuring sets from the label’s founders, friends like 12th Planet, Star Eyes, and our own Nick Catchdubs, and more. Flyer after the jump! Read More

A bounty of bass! Go download now.
The latest and greatest in the Fool’s Gold catalog is out today in the form of Donnis’ debut single “Gone,” a smoothed out rap anthem from one of the brightest new talents in the scene. Remixes come courtesy of DJ hero (and FG homie for life) Craze, who drops a Miami/ATL bass-inspired uptempo version, and a moody take by acclaimed beatmaker Nosaj Thing.
This year’s edition of the Fool’s Gold WMC Spectacular was our second consecutive year tearing down White Room in downtown Miami, and we finally got back all the pics and video documenting the fun-splosion. After a packed weekend of shows, we started the day bum rushing the Stones Throw pool party, killed a giant family dinner at the steakhouse, then hit the clurb. Along with all the FG fam rocking on stage (Sammy Bananas, Nick Catchdubs, Treasure Fingers, Jokers Of The Scene and Nacho Lovers – who took over the whole side room for a night of deeeeeeep house and techno) we played host to special guests Steve Aoki, DJ Mehdi, a rare Annie Mac x Fake Blood tag team, and hometown hero Craze, who ended his set by rocking with A-Trak in an epic impromptu scratch session.
We went the whole night long, staying packed long after the other shows closed down (and gave us second and third winds as the party people trickled in). Check the pics and video after the jump, and Ian Meyer’s full photo gallery here. Also peep A-Trak and Mehdi’s solo blog recaps. Read More
