Not to get all Sally Field on y’all, but it always warms our cold, cold hearts when we see people rocking Fool’s Gold records in their sets, playing on their radio shows, etc. Lets us know we’re on the right track! Basement Jaxx are the latest addition to the support crew, dropping Laidback Luke and Lee Mortimer’s “Blau” in their new Beatport chart. Thanks fellas!
Check this handy guide to everywhere the Fool’s Gold family will be rocking on NYE, from dueling Macklo Bros in Los Angeles to the Suzan in Tokyo to Congorock in warm and sunny Toronto. Bring on 2010! MMX is a damn fine Roman numeral. Read More
Nouveau Yorican, a house-y little collab between our buds Laidback Luke and Gina Turner, just released their debut single “Boriqua” on Sound Pellegrino – savvy listners will recall the track’s debut on Gina’s Foolcast mix! Grab it now on Beatport, along with remixes from Douster, Sandro Silva, and Harvard Bass. As a teaser, check the Harvard Bass version right now on RCRD LBL.
The latest addition to the FG catalog is Laidback Luke and Lee Mortimer’s club detonator “Blau!” – grab it now on Beatport!
The release comes backed with remixes by our very own Nacho Lovers and LA Riots, as well as techmeister Noob and – with two different versions! – UK pal Doorly. These tunes have quickly become DJ favorites, but don’t take our word for it. Just ask Afrojack: “kicks donkeyboner!!!!”
Our girl Annie Mac released the tracklisting for her debut Annie Mac Presents compilation this morning, a two-disc joy machine featuring Duck Sauce’s “aNYway”, Laidback Luke, Greenmoney, Crookers and more. Peep the whole thing after the jump and stay tuned! Read More
Check out the ravin Dutchman’s take on Dizzee Rascal’s latest UK #1 single over at Semtex’s blog. Says Dizzee: “EYE-BEEF-UHH!”
Luke’s new one, a collaboration with Lee Mortimer called “Blau!” is out this fall on Fool’s Gold – here’s a video of Crookers playing it at Creamfields – and his still-massive joint with A-Trak “Shake It Down” is out now, grab vinyl (and accompanying tee shirts!) at the FG webstore.
When our homegirl Gina Turner told us she wanted to contribute a mix for the Foolcast series, we told her it was only on the condition that she title it “Daaamn Gina!” – it’s finally here, and boy is that a theme!
Subscribe to our Foolcast series via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader at the main page (you can also download Gina’s mix directly there). And be sure to bump this hip house-inspired labor of love in your Iroc-Z all summer – check the tracklist, which is as now-school as it is throwback, including a brand new tune Gina and Laidback Luke whipped up together as “Nouveau Yorican,” after the jump.
We definitely believe in the power of smart partnerships and teamwork over at FG HQ, which is probably why one of our earliest outside supporters was fellow start-up RCRD LBL, who built their whole site around supporting artists and presenting great selections of free, authorized new music.
We’ve done free downloads and track debuts with RCRD LBL for almost as long as we’ve been a label ourselves, and this Tuesday (7.14) we’re linking up with them yet again for the 1st RCRD LBL “Friends & Family Meet Up” from 7-10pm at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. Reps from the family of labels involved on the site (Fool’s Gold, Ghostly, Warp, etc) will be premiering tons of brand new and unreleased music – and generally just kicking it – so come through and start your evening with us!
To get you psyched, hit the jump to download ALL of the free Fool’s Gold music available on RCRD LBL – tracks, remixes (our own as well as jams our artists have crafted for others), mixtapes and more. Over 50 tracks! Read More
