Trizzy Does Europe

Posted on Jun 12th, 2008 by A-Trak

Time for one of my long-winded tour novelas. I recently wrapped up a European tour that spanned the whole month of May, one which I arbitrarily named the Upper Crust Tour at the last minute, in honor of that beloved chain of sandwich shops found in almost all train stations. After doing a whole bunch of tours with other people — the Fool’s Gold fam, Mehdi, Kanye, etc — I felt like going off to clubland (Europe) and back to raw DJing practically every night for 4 weeks. Of course I wasn’t literally by myself the whole month. In most cities I was sharing bills with friends from either continent. But it did feel like a pilgrimage to the land of the DJ, and on off-days I would often link up with other producers and work on music. I loved it. I started a Flickr page towards the beginning of my trip so you can catch my full set of pics here. Let’s dive into it. Read More

Dust La Rock “Headhunter” Tee @ Threadless

Posted on Jun 10th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

I just read the history of Threadless on a plane this Sunday, and lo and behold, not two days later I wake up to find a spiffy new design by Fool’s Gold art director Dust La Rock featured on the site as one of this week’s shirts! Serendipitous to say the least. Grab your own “Headhunter” tee right here, and get more Duster-designed (Dustsigned?) garments over at the Fool’s Gold Webstore.

Summer Of Sammy

Summer of Sammy

We welcome Sammy Bananas to our list of blog contributors, as he checks in from his Brooklyn lair…

The Summer Solstice may be 10 days away, but as it was 99 degrees in NYC today I think we can safely say that the season has officially jumped off. And what better way to celebrate the start of summer than with…BANANAS! I’ll be traveling around over the next two weeks killing dancehalls in Vancouver, SF, LA, Chi and Milwaukee, and I made a mix for this Summer of Sammy tour. It features a heap of exclusive material, including the 4 tracks from my upcoming Braids & Fades EP (coming out soon!) Bump it on your way to the beach, while macking honey-dips, while wearing this, or sweating in your hot ass apartment. Mix link, tracklist and full tour dates after the jump!
