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…
PYRITE RADIO is our intermittently aired, eternally awesome Know Wave radio program, hosted by Nick Catchdubs alongside a bouillabaisse of special guests and FG staffers. It’s loose, y’all!

Moby is a true electronic music pioneer. He redefined rave on singles like 1990’s “Go,” then slowed down to explore its aftermath on the multiplatinum Play LP. Decades later, the man is still firing off pointed, personal salvos and dance music curveballs from his LA studio—and, in a most fitting partnership, he’s enlisted Fool’s Gold to remix his iconic catalog on the diverse new Black Lacquer EP. Treasure Fingers, Madeaux, High Klassified, and FG co-founder Nick Catchdubs each put their own spin on Moby hits like “Natural Blues” and “Porcelain,” bouncing from industrial experiments and futuristic techno workouts to late-night house and zooted club bass. Black Lacquer isn’t the Moby you’ve heard before, but a surprising collection that keeps his trailblazing spirit alive.
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
The hottest thing to hit Cali since forest fires, FGDO blazed thru Shrine Outdoors with another unforgettable lineup.

Watch the recap video, tag yourself in the FB gallery, and peep some photo selects after the jump. We’ll be back for more soon! Read More
South Florida got a heavy dose of DAY OFF when we brought Joey Bada$$, A-Trak & Friends (including NORE, Mystikal and Orlando’s own Kaiydo) Hudson Mohawke and the fam to Revolution Live in Ft Lauderdale. Lil Yachty had to dip for BET Awards but the boss MadeinTYO popped up in his place to shut it down alongside Playboi Carti, Kirk Knight, Ape Drums, River Tiber, and FG’s own Nick Catchdubs, BOSCO & Speakerfoxxx and Damaged Goods. Watch the recap video, tag yourself in the FB gallery, and check out some of our fav shots after the jump. Read More
With DAY OFF shows still ringing in their ears, Fool’s Gold keeps it lit with the Hangover EP from Black Dave. Channeling the NYC party animal vibes of vintage Beasties, rap (and skate) champ Dave brings amped-up energy to the mic while producer / DJ Nick Catchdubs provides C.H.U.D.-worthy subterranean bounce. (The free BitTorrent bundle also comes with remix stems for the title track.) Crush a can to this!
