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

The Curious Case Of FGR-003…

Posted on Mar 23rd, 2009 by Nick Catchdubs

Way back in 2007 when we were first launching the label, The Cool Kids’ debut 12″ single was scheduled as part of our earliest batch of releases. But when the duo decided to drop their Bake Sale EP first on Chocolate, we held back the entire vinyl run so it could be used for a future box set. And waited. And waited… until a week or so ago, when we saw that our old vinyl was starting to hit stores as-is, a random little surprise for you (and us!)

Buy it at Turntable Lab to get “88″ (along with the previously unavailable on vinyl “I Rock,” “Gold & A Pager” and “What It Iz”). And check for the Cool Kids full-length When Fish Ride Bicycles dropping soon, it sounds pretty fun.

Kid Sister “Get Fresh” Remixes!

Posted on Mar 11th, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

As Kid Sis puts the finishing touches on her looooooong awaited LP, we went ahead and dropped this treat especially for all the record spinners out there who were her earliest supporters – an official single for album cut “Get Fresh” exclusively on vinyl and Beatport, where you can buy it today! It comes complete with brand new remixes from homies Zombie Nation (who’s “Lower State Of Consciousness” as ZZT provided sample fodder for the original) and Alex Gopher. To whet your appetite, here’s the Gopher mix courtesy of our friends at RCRD LBL.

Annie Mac and Andy George have already been rinsing the new mixes on BBC, and they’re sure to light up DJ sets all throughout Winter Music Conference and SXSW – where you can conveniently catch Kid Sister performing live every night of the fest, including the late night Fool’s Gold After Dark spectacular on 3/19. Check the info on her MySpace.

JOTS vs FLOSS

Posted on Mar 11th, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

Jokers Of The Scene recently whipped up one ‘evy, ‘evy remix for Flosstradamus’ “Big Bills,” taking Caroline Polachek’s moody, Nico-esque vocals to their logical extreme by turning the whole track into a dark and thumping Berlin basement jam. Download JOTS’ “After 4AM Rework” for free (along with the original track and additional remixes from Blaqstarr and Floss themselves) at the “Big Bills” Green Label Sound page.
