A longtime member of the Fool’s Gold fam and an amazingly versatile DJ, KITTENS is known for finding original, soulful sounds with a hip hop backbone and a futuristic twist. On her newest single “Let It Go” she delivers a neck-snapping, midtempo groove with syrupy vocals, showing that her production chops are sharper than ever. Whether she’s appearing in a YSL campaign, organizing her PWR DJ workshops or sitting behind the boards, KITTENS always leads with taste and class.
Tommy Trash created the original Group Chat EP while touring with his Fool’s Gold labelmates, and their late night, on-the-go energy was tangible on every single track. On the Australian dance king’s new Group Chat Remixes EP, he takes his family affair global, enlisting a surprising batch of brand new producers and rising remix talent to flip those collabs with A-Trak, Gladiator, Kittens and more into fresh club weapons. Turn your read receipts on, these are coming in hot…
Tommy Trash’s newest Fool’s Gold project is a family affair like none other. The electro emperor’s Group Chat EP was assembled during the “Gold Gone Wild” tour, which paired Tommy with some of FG’s newest and truest talents, from label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs to LA young guns Madeaux, Kittens and Gladiator. From the moment that first drop hits, you can tell that this project was created with the previous night’s set still ringing in the collaborators’ ears; Group Chat ain’t no quickie collage, however. Tommy’s lifetime of dance music expertise serves as a masterful spirit guide for the anything-goes experimentation, connecting the dots between A-Trak’s pop smarts and and Catchdubs’ cut-n-paste hip hop chops, adding extra oomph to Kittens late-night breakbeats and Gladiator’s trap symphonies, and polishing Madeaux’s industrial-strength darkness into a techno gem far greater than the sum of its parts. Teamwork makes the dream work… text this one to a friend near you! Read More

Brooklyn’s own Fool’s Gold Records takes their annual DAY OFF extravaganza cross country once again, closing out this year’s series of festival events with an all-day party on Sunday, September 25th at Shrine LA Outdoors.
Mac Miller headlines his first Los Angeles show of the year alongside G.O.O.D. Music president (and Clipse legend) Pusha T and FG’s own A-Trak, who’s hitting the decks with an “…and friends” guestlist that always amazes. DAY OFF LA will also feature upstart ATL phenom MADEINTYO, Fool’s Gold’s buzzy young R&B star Black Atlass, and the label’s resident DJ killers Madeaux, Kittens and Nick Catchdubs. And of course, you know it wouldn’t be a DAY OFF without a gang of surprises on deck…
This LA event caps a massive summer of DAY OFF shows for Fool’s Gold, including a New York event at the 34th St Helipad on 8/20 headlined by Migos and Juelz Santana, and a Miami blowout at Soho Studios on 9/17 with Joey Bada$$ and Hudson Mohawke topping a full day of performances from FG signees and some of the world’s most exciting new DJs and MCs. Advance tickets for all three DAY OFF events are available now at fgdayoff.com.
