WE’RE COMING TO WHERE YOU LIVE!
After a non-stop summer of boombox detonations and stadium invasions, the entire Fool’s Gold roster gets extra-shiny for their Fall tour of the US and Canada. It’s everything you’d want from a night at the club: new-school rap princess Kid Sister, tag team DJ sets from the world-renowned A-Trak and his brother from another DJ Mehdi (Ed Banger), electro madness from Daft Punk’s favorite DJ, Kavinsky, the Cool Kids‘ back-to-the-future boom, and brand-new jams from Nick Catchdubs, along with surprise guest appearances along the way.
DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs founded Fool’s Gold earlier this year, bringing together the hip-hop and electronic music they play in their sets through official releases like Kid Sister’s debut single “Control” and A-Trak’s Dirty South Dance remixes (in stores now). “This DJ scene that we’re a part of in North America has influenced music scenes across the world, but ironically there aren’t enough labels that represent it,” says A-Trak. “That’s where Fool’s Gold comes in.”
Dim Mak Collection will be producing limited-edition tees for the tour, featuring original artwork by Fool’s Gold in-house graphic designer Dust La Rock. The label will use their tour momentum to launch a slew of releases for the rest of the year, including new singles from Cool Kids, Kid Sister, Kavinsky and new signing Kid Cudi, an EP of ’90s dance re-edits by Sammy Bananas called High Top Fades, international bass rattlers from Jokers of the Scene (Ottawa) and Bag Raiders (Sydney), and more.
Following these North American dates, A-Trak and Mehdi embark on a two-week European jaunt that the bass bros have dubbed “The DJ Mehdi & A-Trak Spectacular Review.” A-Trak’s also been shaking dancefloors on his own, with thumping official remixes for Digitalism (Kitsune), Bumblebeez (Modular), Architecture in Helsinki (Polyvinyl) and Roc-A-Fella’s own Kanye West.

Sunday was the last of the free Pool Parties at McCarren Park in Brooklyn. The Rub and the BBC played rackords and brought out their friends to do some raps. Kid Sister, the Cool Kids, Santogold and “surprise guests” Spankrock and Amanda Blank all played. It was a real soggy, real fun family reunion. More pics after the jump… Read More

Kavinsky and Kid Sister
Pedro from Ed Banger has been posting from the Daft Punk tour over here. The pyramid stopped down in Chicago for a few days (“where the music we love is coming from. Names like Dj Sneak, Dance Mania, Paul Johnson, Cajmere, Roy Davis JR, we owe them so much, they are House music. Being here is kind of a pilgrim for us.”) and you know dudes had to catch up with the Fool’s Gold fam.
