The surprise Boiler Room NYC launch party for Fool’s Gold’s Night Shift compilation was one of the livest parties of the year! We weren’t able to live stream the event from LPR, but absolutely had to archive the night for posterity. FG label family Brenmar (going b2b with DJ Sliink), BOSCO, Rome Fortune and Nick Catchdubs kept it lit all night, capped by special guest MadeinTYO skrrr skrrr-ing across the stage at the exact moment his “Uber Everywhere” took the city over. Check out the all sets after the jump and give Fool’s Gold Presents: Night Shift a spin now! Read More
Rome Fortune’s “Dance” gets taken to the roller rink courtesy of LA-via-Minneapolis funkster Gigamesh. Vintage synths and “Planet Rock” worthy 808s make this reanimated “Dance” a summertime essential. Hear the Kaytranada-produced original on Rome’s debut LP Jerome Raheem Fortune, and check additional flips from Brenmar, Fred Falke, Felon and more on the “Dance Remixes” EP, both out now on Fool’s Gold.
With his new album Potential, producer The Range is making waves with what Pitchfork praises as “moving, emotionally resonant electronic music.” Rome Fortune is doing the same for hip-hop, putting his soul on the line throughout the acclaimed Jerome Raheem Fortune LP. These two musical upstarts hit the road for a co-headlining tour starting May 4th in LA, and celebrate the occasion with this new remix, where The Range lends his heady vibes to Rome’s “Paid Back Loans.” Listen to it now and check out the Dance Remixes EP with a new one from Codes!

In the most cosmic sense of the word, Rome Fortune is Atlanta’s newest star. Green-bearded and crop-topped, 6’5” in cowboy boots, he takes the stage like an eclipse and flips straighforward bars into lunar poetry. But even with such otherworldly swagger, Rome’s music connects with fans because of how powerfully (and sometimes painfully) human it really is.
Jerome Raheem Fortune is the true story of this man who fell to earth. Rome’s Beautiful Pimp mixtapes (“rap as motivational speaking, generous and all-inclusive” – Pitchfork) and collaborations with everyone from turn-up trailblazers OG Maco and ILoveMakonnen to Four Tet and Toro Y Moi were merely the prelude to JRF’s nakedly honest storytelling.
Over loose, dreamlike tracks from longtime collaborator Cubby, Rome gets extra real about his struggles: his parents, his children, and their mothers… his dreams, his demons, and the drugs that may be fueling both. Even Kaytranada produced single “Dance” is an outlier, an uptempo song about escape rather than elation. Yet nothing on Jerome Raheem Fortune is a drag; over the course of 11 potent tracks, Rome Fortune presents hip hop catharsis at its most compelling. Head towards the outer limits of rap with a guide who is intimately familiar. Listen to Jerome Raheem Fortune here.
Dance legend Fred Falke lends his French touch to Rome Fortune’s debut Fool’s Gold single, grafting a feel-good disco groove onto “Dance” and creating a glittery house anthem for the ages. Premiered on FACT, listen to Fred’s take below and pre-order #JeromeRaheemFortune out worldwide on 2/26!
