Congorock Takes North America

Posted on Feb 9th, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

This week the Fool’s Gold international DJ exchange program brings another new star to our shores, as the big beat frenzy of Italy’s Congorock comes to Toronto, Winnipeg, NYC and Los Angeles (the last one is a real doozy, a free show with our boys Rusko and AC Slater also on the bill). Peep all the party dates after the jump.

This mini-trek is meant to amp everyone up for the release of Congorock’s debut Fool’s Gold 12″ single “Runark,” a bleep-ed out club monster that comes backed with a massive remix by labelmates Jokers Of The Scene and two more originals, all wrapped up in psychomystical sleeve art by Dust La Rock. Vinyl is in production now, and you can get the digital version (with a bonus remix by His Majesty Andre) exclusively at Turntable Lab starting Feb 24th, with all other digi retailers to follow. “BIIIIIG CHOOOON” says us. “THANKS!” says y’all. You’re welcome. Read More

New A-Trak Mix CD, Tour Dates, Serato Contest…

Posted on Feb 2nd, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

As you may have read, A-Trak has a brand new, officially licensed mix CD coming out on April 14th called Infinity +1. (Check the schmoove cover artwork by Dust La Rock. It’s all in the lips.)
