LA neighbors and bizarro beat aficionados Sinden & Astronomar are heading out on a mini-tour together starting Thursday in Seattle. They’ve put together a free EP for the occasion, premiered today on Do Androids Dance. For even more madness from these Fool’s Gold cousins, grab Sinden’s Ring Around The Moon EP (in original and remixed form) and Astronomar’s Clubhouse collab with CRNKN, “Young Mummy.”
Our last release of 2013 is a doozy: the title track from Sinden’s Ring Around The Moon EP gets remixed by CZ, Mixhell and High Klassified, taking the Mykki Blanco-featuring jam in cosmic new directions. Get it now on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
If that’s not enough Sinden-related new new for ya, we’ve also got a bonus remix from Matrixxman for free download: grab his “Mayhem Mixx” of Ring Around The Moon cut “Almost Gone” below!

He’s been an extended Fool’s Gold family member since day one, and we are excited to welcome him back to the label with the Ring Around The Moon EP, out today on Beatport! Read More

He’s been an extended Fool’s Gold family member since day one, and we are excited to welcome him back to the label with the Ring Around The Moon EP, dropping this Tuesday (7/2) on Beatport.
Ring Around The Moon is a collection of extremely self-assured house and techno cuts that manage to be deep and dangerous at the same (damn) time. The unexpected kinks and textures of “Almost Gone” (premiered today by The Fader) and “Mathmatical” mark new territory for Sinden, while the title track (featuring vocals from underground superstar Mykki Blanco) is a mood masterpiece of hypnotic organ riffs, jacking percussion and sampled baby cries. Turn off the lights and get galactic…

And it’s free!
The Echoplex was the place to be last month, with the Fool’s Gold crew taking over the Check Yo Ponytail party for a night of raps, revelry and BRUISER MOTHERFUCKIN BRIGADE! Danny Brown headlined a night that also featured Kid Sister (backed by Sinden and J2K of Flosstradamus), Main Attrakionz, Party Supplies and Thee Mike B. Check out Spin’s gallery of shots by Nathaniel Turner, a bunch of Shadowscene flicks, video of Schoolboy Q coming out for “Blunt After Blunt,” as well as a megacollection of photos and videos from our homie Glenjamn! Peep more from him after the jump.
If that’s not enough, check the party on NBC tonight when Danny makes his network television debut on Last Call With Carson Daly, airing tonight (well, Thursday morning if you want to get technical) at 1:35 am after Jimmy Fallon. Set them TiVOs. Read More
Kid Sis recently got in the studio with Riff Raff to jump on a track produced by Sinden and 5kinandbone5, and you can check the results above. Suffice it to say, they brought the rice out. Stay tuned for Kid Sister’s new EP!
