Trizzy and ‘Dini are back with another episode of Fool’s Gold Radio, first heard on SiriusXM and now available here for your downloading enjoyment. One hour of new jams from across the entire dance music universe, get busy! Grab on Soundcloud (and/or subscribe to the podcast via iTunes) and check the tracklist after the jump.
Sammy Bananas has been keeping Fool’s Gold funky since the label first began. Yet all his smash bootlegs, remixes and original jams (both as a solo artist and as one half of FG duos Fifteenth and Telephoned) were merely setting the stage for the brand new Flexin’ EP, a back-to-the-future blast of house, disco and R&B vibes blended together as only one Banana man can. It’s a master class in party music from a scholar of New Jack Swing.
As if these hybrid cuts weren’t fun enough on their own, we’ve pressed Flexin’ onto limited-edition colored vinyl, complete with mustachioed “Mr. Flex” cutout figure (designed by RAZAUNO) for maximum DIY dance party action. Sammy Bananas is in the house, literally in your house. Peep some action shots of Mr. Flex with A-Trak, Chromeo and more after the jump…
For our annual FG x LTD+ holiday bash, we skipped the North Pole and went straight to Chiraq, flying Young Chop and friends to Westway to rock a set of high-grade turn-uppables. 100s was also in the building, hosting (and performing “1999” and “My Activator”) in a very festive head-to-toe red ensemble, and NYC’s finest Nick Catchdubs, Ni– Sky and DJ Wonder held down the 1s and 2s all night. Watch the official recap vid above and stay tuned for the next Fool’s Gold event very soon…
Keeping straight-up DJ vibes alive and well, Nick Catchdubs returns with another set of “Jiggy Blends” over on his Soundcloud, this time flipping Sage The Gemini, Future and even Zedd in classic party rocking fashion. Grab em (and download Vol 1 for even more jams!)
The last Day Off of 2013 was our best yet: the first ever Miami edition at Mana Wynwood, headlined by Miami mayor Trick Daddy and featuring sets from A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Dave 1 of Chromeo, Young Thug, Brenmar, Nick Catchdubs, Damaged Goods, Eskeerdo, and VERY special guests Danny Brown and Travi$ Scott. Peep what went down in the recap video above, and photo galleries from David Cabrera, Le Panda, XXL, Miami NewTimes and Frank151 (some of our favorites after the jump). We’ll see you next year!

We celebrated six years of Fool’s Gold-ing with another legendary anniversary celebration last month, bringing a gang of friends and fam deep into Brooklyn to rock at SRB.

Huge! Watch the recap video above and check out some photo galleries from Le Panda, Mel D Cole, Frank151 and Village Voice (some of our favorites after the jump).
