Taking place this week in Melbourne, Australia, the Carbon Festival celebrates “contemporary style, design and culture” with panels and events featuring artists, writers and musicians from around the globe. This year’s guests include our own Dust La Rock (who designed a special cover of Acclaim magazine that ties in to the fest) as well as Nick Catchdubs and Party Supplies, who will be performing at the official launch party alongside Neil Armstrong and more.
Our own NT89 and Nick Catchdubs are featured remixers (along with Boys Noize representative SCNTST) on “Inner O,” the new single from Dems out now on Beatport. No, not Dem Franchize Boyz (although that would rule) but a rising UK trio you can check out in original, non-remixed form here. Stream Nima and Nick’s remixes below.
Whether you wanna call it WMC, Ultra or Miami Music Week… you know how Fool’s Gold duz it! For the third year running we were back at Grand Central, with the whole fam making you dance. Check out “DJ Canada” rocking alongside Jacques Lu Cont, Just Blaze, Congorock, Treasure Fingers, Style Of Eye, LA Riots, Flosstradamus, Jokers Of The Scene, Nick Catchdubs, Fifteenth and surprise guests Annie Mac and Vega (not to mention the Peachfuzz crew keeping it live upstairs with Craze, DJ Soul and other guests). Musics!
A few weeks ago we ran through Austin for two mega parties during SXSW: a label showcase at the brand new Beauty Ballroom, and a team-up Super Party with Mad Decent and Check Yo Ponytail that took over BB as well as the giant Emo’s East down the street. Suffice it to say… shit got live!
From A$AP (and Sammy Bananas!) stagedives to A-Trak’s big-room scratchery, these were parties none of us will forget. Check out our recap video of both nights above, along with photos from our in-house shutterbug Josh Wehle (as well as a CYP’s full cinema-style featurette on Super Party) after the jump. Read More
Telephoned is DJ/producer Sammy Bananas and singer Maggie Horn, a dynamic duo specializing in unique covers, unexpected pop jams and general good times. Switchboard sees the group turning that vibe into a monthly NYC party with remix and remake-heavy sets from their friends and fam (and themselves, of course), featuring everything from The Suzan gleefully bashing away on a Miike Snow song to Nick Catchdubs dropping a set of ’80s-jacking Bad Boy hits.
You don’t want to miss out this Tuesday (April 17th), when Telephoned celebrates the party’s one year anniversary at Drom on Avenue A. They’ll be performing alongside Mattie Safer and Party Supplies, while Nick Catchdubs, Autobot of Flosstradamus, DJ Wonder and Musa throw down DJ sets. The night is also a fundraiser for CCFA, an Crohns and colitis research organization that Maggie will be running a half marathon for this summer (more information and links to donate here). Good tunes, good cause… we’ll see you there! Check the full flyer after the jump. Read More
It’s that time of year again… we’re throwing a daytime bash for all the party people headed to Palm Springs this weekend for Coachella.

Update: added some big gunz to the lineup in the form of Flying Lotus and Oliver, who’ll be joining Daniel LeDisko, Nick Hook of Cubic Zirconia, (Thee) Mike B and a special tag team DJ set from label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Woah!
Whether you wanna call it WMC, Ultra or Miami Music Week… you know how Fool’s Gold duz it! For the third year running we’re back at Grand Central, and the whole fam will be there to make you dance. Come thru (once again it’s free) and get down. Read More
