New Greenmoney & Seiji Radio – FG Exclusives!

Posted on Apr 2nd, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

Click here to listen to the latest Ministry of Sound radio show from UK production duo Greenmoney (Alex from Bugz In The Attic and big homie Leo from YoYo), featuring all sorts of UK funky house goodies and original productions, including Greenmoney’s remix of DJ Gant-Man’s upcoming Fool’s Gold single “Juke Dat Girl.”

This particular episode also features a guest set from another one of our favorites, Seiji, who rocks FG exclusives of his own with two mixes of Crookers and Kid Cudi’s “Embrace The Martian,” both of which will drop on our Crookers EP out later this spring. Safe!

Fool’s Gold SXSW Recap

The Fool’s Gold After Dark showcase in Austin last week was insane in every possible way, from the turnout (line down the block and around the corner all night!) to the tunes, as the whole roster dropped stellar sets packed with new joints and dence detonators. Even when the sound unceremoniously got cut during Mehdi’s set due to arcane Austin liquor laws, he still managed to smash it! Kid Cudi came through and surprised us with a quick set, fans and well-wishers included everyone from Clinton Sparks and Steve “Buddy” Aoki to MCs like Curren$y, Mistah FAB and Izza Kizza, and an amazing time was had by all.

Thanks to everyone at Scion, Palm Door/Beauty Bar and Red Stripe for lending a hand, and thanks to all the shutterbugs who put their pics on Flickr to make this wrapup possible, Catch lost his camera while crowdsurfing shirtless later in the week (smoove….) but the FG Flip cam made it back alive with video.

If you have more pics or video from the night, send em in! (Update: like this!) Now hit the jump for the goods! See you next year AWWWWWWstin! Read More
