Whutup blog! Sorry to leave you with nothing 2 step 2 for a minute, you can check the MySpace blog to catch up on all the news. So a year ago, Skinny Friedman of the Philadelphyinz and I started a party called Player’s Club (1st & 3rd Weds at Pianos 158 Ludlow NYC) and tomorrow she turns one year old! Skinny has been slicing the country up in an wrapped Alize tour bus with the homie Izza Kizza as his tour DJ for the past month, but he will be in the building tomorrow for the celebration! The great response to our first PC mix made us want to do another for the anniversary. Check below for the full tracklisting + a surprise.
Sammy Bananas is overseas for some Euro gigs this week, check the full info after the jump including two shows in France tonight and tomorrow (the latter alongside homies Craze & Klever!) followed by UK and Italy gigs.
If that’s not enough Banana action for you, check out his awesome midtempo remix of Kid Cudi’s “Make Her Say” (originally posted at Gotta Dance Dirty).
Sammy’s rocking overseas this week, check him out in Gothenburg, Krakow and Oslo! Full info on his MySpace. And be sure to click here to re-up on any SB mp3 freebies you may have missed over the past year or so.
Last week Fool’s Gold was proud to take part in Converse’s 1st annual “Band Of Ballers” tournament. As player/GM (ha!) I put together a scrappy team including Donnis and soopamanager D Solo, Sammy Bananas, and DJ Jayceeoh. NCAA experience, mustaches, high socks – we had it all. A-Trak suited up like a French Canadian Pat Riley on the sidelines as coach, and we took on the competition with championship swag while Cipha Sounds soundtracked it Miss Info and FG fan Peter Rosenberg did play-by-play. Did I mention there were video girls? Spectacle.
Game 1 was a resounding FG victory against the Mad Decent team, followed by a Game 2 loss to Jim Jones and fam. We still made the semi-finals though, where team FG sweated out a heartbreaker of an overtime loss (the only game to hit sudden death!) to Pac Div. They in turn lost to Jimmy’s team in the finals. Ah well, there’s always the next tourney. We played hard, had fun, and came away with a year’s worth of bragging rights against Diplo. Twitter that!
Mad potassium this week when Sammy Bananas hits Pianos in New York tonight, Fuse (with our pal DJ Fashen) in Phoenix on Friday, and Barrio in Columbus Ohio on Saturday. Full dates and details on Samuel’s MySpace.
He’s got a slew of new remixes, Telephoned tunes, and originals on deck – since we can’t share right this second, make do with ALL the other Sammy Bananas freebies available online, handily collected for you after the jump. A banana bonanza! Read More
The calendar section coming up on our new website is gonna be crayjeeee, but until then the best place to keep up with tour dates for the whole Fool’s Gold family is our MySpace and Twitter, which we keep updated daily with the comings (ayo!) and goings of the FG fam. That said – we can’t neglect the regular ol’ blog neither!
Here’s a bunch of flyers for gigs coming up this weekend, including DJ Gant-Man and Jokers Of The Scene rocking separate parties in Chicago tonight (JOTS also hit SD on Saturday), LA Riots and Nick Catchdubs in NYC Friday along with Sammy Bananas with Switch in LA, Treasure Fingers in Vancouver and Andrew Ross of Nacho Lovers in Toronto that same night (he’s reunited with the other Nacho in Calgary Saturday), and of course the ‘Burger trio who stay hitting towns near you on the DAILY (including SF tonight with Trackademicks). Support real live DJs! Read More
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
More radio rips of British people today, this time it’s Andy George and Jaymo’s “In New DJs We Trust” show featuring a guest mix from FG’s Sammy Bananas (and Surkin too!) which you can download here or stream here.
