Fool’s Gold Remixed Tour (Belated) Recap

Posted on Nov 24th, 2008 by Nick Catchdubs

Last month a bunch of the FG fam went out on the road to celebrate the release of our Fool’s Gold Remixed compilation with Scion. And now we finally got all the pics back (save for the Philly date, I blame Andy Reid…) and can share em with you after the jump.

Stay tuned for a limited edition vinyl 12″ of selected tracks from the comp, and look for copies at various Fool’s Gold and Scion events throughout the rest of this year and next. And if you can’t track the CD down, cop the remixes from your favorite digital retailer. Now onto the recap-ery! Read More

Posted on Nov 20th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Almost a year after the A-Trak/Kid Sis spectacular, Fool’s Gold returns to the Museum Of Natural History for their latest One Step Beyond party.

Admission includes a free pass to the museum to party with Ben Stiller whenever you like.

Jokers Of The Scene Electric Fields Mix

Posted on Nov 20th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Electric Fields is an electronic (duh) music and media arts festival in Ottawa that’s “dedicated to the presentation of new and significant performance and installation works created at the crossroads of art, science and technology.” It should make sense, then, for Ottawa’s resident electronic wizards Jokers Of The Scene to get involved. They’ve made an exclusive mix which you can download for free until the festival closes on 11/23. Grab it here:

You can also check out the Jokers alongside Treasure Fingers in Mexico City this Saturday, check the flyer and info here.

I haven’t posted in awhile because I just recently moved back to BK after being a World Traveler Adventurer for a couple months as well as having a spine-crushing workload. As the records have come out of storage and gone back on the shelf I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite classics with you..

Masters of the Universe (Joey Negro)- Space Talk (Strictly Underground)

Pal Joey- Party Time (Loop ‘D Loop)

Kerri Chandler- Atmosphere EP (Shelter Records) Jersey stand the fuck up!!!

I could go on for days.. Some real posts w/ deep thoughts coming soon, I promise.

Daniel from LA Riots just sent over this clip from the booth during his set at Berlin’s Ghent’s massive (35,000 sold-out tickets!!!) I Love Techno festival from this past weekend, along with a recording of his live set that you can download here:

“On the recording you can actually hear the crowd chanting in unison…thousands of people all chanting like they were at a soccer match!” says Daniel. They call it “football” over there homie, but we’re feeling you!!!

Laidback Luke Added To Fool’s Gold Cinespace Takeover!

Posted on Nov 18th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Fool’s Gold x Vice x Bacardi Chromeo Remixes

Posted on Nov 15th, 2008 by A-Trak

I’m surprised we didn’t do this earlier! Chromeo is my brother with our childhood friend, Fool’s Gold is my label… It’s only natural to get Fool’s Gold producers to remix Chromeo. Yet it took Bacardi to make it happen. Bacardi’s B-Live program brings you these funkier-than-thou remixes of the slick album closer “100%.” You all know Treasure Fingers from his infectious two-stepper ‘Cross The Dancefloor’ and multiple remixes as of late. If you’re up on your new releases you probably heard Nacho Lovers’ inaugural and timeless single “Acid Life.” And to flip things a little we recruited Bay Area rapper-slash-producer Trackademicks, whose single “Enjoy What You Do” is just about to drop! Start downloading…NOW.
