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
They’ve decided to make this week “Fool’s Gold Week,” and to celebrate we’ve given them a different exclusive download or stream for every day. It started off with a Nacho Lovers megamix showcasing all the tracks off their forthcoming “Acid Life / Go On” single, continued with a promo download of Sammy Bananas’ “Ladies” off his Braids & Fades EP, and today we dropped a preview stream of A-Trak and Laidback Luke’s massive team-up “Shake It Down.” Tomorrow the Surkin remix of Nacho Lovers’ “Acid Life” (off our Scion comp) makes its debut, and then we close the week real big with another megamix, this time featuring tracks off Jokers Of The Scene’s long awaited Acid Bagg EP.
We’re the label of the week over at RCRD LBL, where they describe us by saying “Our bros A-Trak and Catchdubs are dropping club hits for the kids!” That sounds about right. Head over there and download freebies like the JFK and Bag Raiders remixes of Kid Sister, Cudi and Crookers, and more!
Born and raised in Cleveland, currently residing in BK, crazy melodic flow… ladies and gentlemen, it’s Kid Cudi! It’s not a stretch to say that his debut single “Day ‘N’ Nite” (cop on vinyl or iTunes or Juno or anywhere else fine recorded media is sold) is one of the most hypnotic and original tracks to come out of our scene in some time. It’s also not a stretch to say that this remix of “Day ‘N’ Nite” by Italian deejay superstars Crookers is ABSOLUTELY UNFUCKWITHABLE. Its not on the physical or digital release, but you can get it right here for free at RCRD LBL.
If you went out and splurged your hard earned duckets on that Jokers Of The Scene “Y’all Know The Name” vinyl the very second it was available for sale, consider this an mp3-only bonus beat (also: THANKS!) If you’ve never heard of the Jokers before – hell, if you can’t find Canada on a map! – consider this a free hit that will get you hooked on the musical stylings of Ottawa’s favorite ravers. Gateway drugs are the new black! We’re proud to present the William Russell remix of JOTS’ club catnip “Y’all Know The Name” as our latest free download for RCRD LBL. Grab it here and play it loud!
An EP of Kid Sister remixes – as well as the Bag Raiders’ first North American 12″ – will be out on Fool’s Gold early next year, and to tease both releases we dropped this great “Pro Nails” remix by Bag Raiders on RCRD LBL today. It’s a free mp3 promo, so go and download away at http://foolsgold.rcrdlbl.com. Vowels are for jrks!
