We celebrated three years of Fool’s Gold by closing out Pitchfork #Offline at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday, October 23rd 2010. It was a crazy evening of anniversary revelry, starring our friends and fam new and old: A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Donnis, CyHi Da Prynce, The Suzan, Kingdom, Araabmuzik on the MPC, and guest appearances by GZA of the Wu Tang Clan and this Kanye West fellow you might have heard of. OUR CHAIN HEAVY! Read More
Following up their ecstatic, cowbell-fuled version of The Strokes’ “Take It Or Leave It,” our girls The Suzan are back with another cover. This time, they tap into a different frequency all together for a moody, Krautrock-y version of Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak standout “Paranoid.” Download from The Fader!
Check The Suzan live in NYC this week for CMJ shows with Nicky Digital (Wednesday @ Ella) and Saturday at the FG 3-Year Anniversary @ Brooklyn Bowl, all in advance of their Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat album release on 10/25. More Suzan announcements soon…
A few weeks ago, Fool’s Gold was asked to commission remixes for Kid Cudi’s latest single “Make Her Say.” Well, broskis – the results were pretty damn banging!
Details on the full batch of mixes (and where / when we’ll be leaking them) to follow, meanwhile dig into this awesome, instantly playable remix by Afrojack, who’s Dutch house bangers (and some major co-productions) are currently lighting up DJ sets worldwide.
Fresh from the Squeak E Clean promo empire comes this Treasure Fingers remix of NASA’s “Gifted” featuring Santigold, Lykke Li and Kanye West. It’s a fun one! Grab it here, along with a radio edit for the on-air deejays.
Hit up Martin Louis The King’s blog to download “I Poke Her Face,” a new Lady Gaga-flipping track from Cudder with guest verses from Kanye and Common and A-Trak on the cut. Trizzy explains how it came together (gold star if you can name what break record the whoo! comes from…)
Following my last post about Good Vibrations, we’re now on the 2nd and final weekend of the Australian traveling festival. On the agenda: Sydney and the far-away Perth. People had been hyping up this Sydney show for the whole week. This would be the bigger, badder, deffer show of the bunch. We got there, scoped out the grounds as we rode around in our buggy and saw the masses of people undulating in the huge park… yep, this was gonna be a good one. Read More
(That’s a little deeper in Aussie slang than the obvious “g’day”)
I’m reporting live via my hotel room in Sydney. I’m out here doing the Good Vibrations festival. In Australia they have these festivals that hit multiple cities. It’s like being part of a traveling circus for 10 days. A traveling techno circus. Read More
