The thousands of people who attended our Day Off party last year (or saw the footage immortalized in Duck Sauce’s smash “Barbra Streisand” video) spent an afternoon living it up with the country’s most fun MCs and DJs, eating hamburgers in one hand and catching a crowd-surfing Yelawolf in the other. For this year’s Day Off, the vibes will once again be handled by true good-time professionals: Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia, with his first NYC show since releasing the underground favorite Rubba Band Business mixtapes, critically acclaimed Fool’s Gold rapper Danny Brown, multiplatinum producer and club king Just Blaze, the Brothers Macklovitch (aka superstar sibling DJ team A-Trak and Dave 1 of Chromeo), drum machine wizards Araabmuzik and Party Supplies, FG future funk trio Cubic Zirconia, and label co-founder / party rocker extraordinaire Nick Catchdubs, along with some very special guests… Read More
For our FG holiday bash two years ago, we invited Just Blaze out to play a house set (which would turn out to be the first of many parties with the Megatron Don). We posted the audio from our crazy, snowed-in basement party online, and apparently the folks at Cajual were listening, because they enlisted Just to remix Cajmere and Dajae’s classic “Brighter Days,” which is out now on Beatport. Check it out and stay tuned for some more FG x JB very soon…

A bunch of our friends in NYC are getting together Saturday for a Japan relief event at Tammany Hall. Go there! We’ll let them explain it:
“A Red Circle. Anyone who donates or supports gets one. It’s not only a badge of support, it’s a rally cry. We are organizing an event in NYC on Saturday 4/16/11 to bring people together; get them to donate directly to Red Cross Japan and then represent with this button. You don’t have to buy a product. There’s no ‘portion of sales’ of anything…We’re just giving those that choose to support a means of telling the world around them to do the same. With the help of our friends, we’ve amassed an incredible all-star line up of DJs to provide you with what will be a very special night. Please come out and support, have a good time and GIVE. Japan has given us so much. It’s time to give back.” Read More
