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…)
Click here to listen to the latest Ministry of Sound radio show from UK production duo Greenmoney (Alex from Bugz In The Attic and big homie Leo from YoYo), featuring all sorts of UK funky house goodies and original productions, including Greenmoney’s remix of DJ Gant-Man’s upcoming Fool’s Gold single “Juke Dat Girl.”
This particular episode also features a guest set from another one of our favorites, Seiji, who rocks FG exclusives of his own with two mixes of Crookers and Kid Cudi’s “Embrace The Martian,” both of which will drop on our Crookers EP out later this spring. Safe!
The Fool’s Gold After Dark showcase in Austin last week was insane in every possible way, from the turnout (line down the block and around the corner all night!) to the tunes, as the whole roster dropped stellar sets packed with new joints and dence detonators. Even when the sound unceremoniously got cut during Mehdi’s set due to arcane Austin liquor laws, he still managed to smash it! Kid Cudi came through and surprised us with a quick set, fans and well-wishers included everyone from Clinton Sparks and Steve “Buddy” Aoki to MCs like Curren$y, Mistah FAB and Izza Kizza, and an amazing time was had by all.
Thanks to everyone at Scion, Palm Door/Beauty Bar and Red Stripe for lending a hand, and thanks to all the shutterbugs who put their pics on Flickr to make this wrapup possible, Catch lost his camera while crowdsurfing shirtless later in the week (smoove….) but the FG Flip cam made it back alive with video.
If you have more pics or video from the night, send em in! (Update:like this!) Now hit the jump for the goods! See you next year AWWWWWWstin! Read More

Kid Cudi’s original “Day ‘N’ Nite” finally has a video, which premiered earlier today on 106 And Park and was directed by Parisian homie So Me. It has been amazing to see the record take on such a life of its own in the year since we first released it, and we’re definitely proud of Cudi and all his success. Grab the “Day ‘N’ Nite” single on iTunes if you haven’t already!
Our promo-only Fool’s Gold Remixed 12″s finally arrived in the house house house. Four of the biggest tracks off our Scion A/V compilation from this past fall on one thick slab of vinyl: Chromeo’s funked up take on Treasure Fingers’ “Cross The Dancefloor,” Surkin’s choppy version of Nacho Lovers’ “Acid Life,” Rusko dropping dubstep bombs all over Kid Sister’s “Pro Nails,” and Jori Hulkonnen’s hypnotic, techy remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day ‘N’ Nite.”
This is a limited, one-time only pressing for friends, fam and assorted DJs, but we were able to get a few copies over to Turntable Lab, so cop it while you can!
The European reissue of Kid Cudi’s “Day ‘N’ Nite” (featuring the massive Crookers version, along with additional new mixes commissioned by Data/Ministry Of Sound) gets its official release today, after 1,000,000+ YouTube views, heaps of pre-release press, and, y’know, being one good-ass universal tune. Pick it up digitally or on vinyl or CD single (both pictured) in your favorite shop, international friends!
DJ Benzi and Plain Pat collected a litany of new and old Kanye West remixes for their Sky High mixtape, which is finally out in official form (“This new version is not like the crappy webrip that was floating around, and is properly mixed and mastered” says Benzi). The KW reworkers include a who’s who of FG fam and friends, like A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs, Eli Escobar, Kid Cudi, Stretch Armstrong and many more talented folks. Download it free right here.
Our UK homie Rusko DJed the latest edition of BBC’s famed Essential Mix this past weekend, and you can grab the set and check the tracklisting over at Discobelle.
