Fool’s Gold “Day Off” Recapmania!

Posted on Sep 28th, 2010 by Mr Goldbar

As you saw in the video for “Barbra Streisand,” our inaugural Day Off party on Labor Day in NYC was beyond crazy. Guest raps from Yelawolf, Pill and Donnis, DJ sets from The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak & Dave1), Just Blaze, the Slow Roast crew (Craze, Klever & Kill The Noise) and Nick Catchdubs, and a live performance by The Suzan…the whole fam put it down!

Check this recap video by Yours Truly to share all the Day Off vibes, from beats to burgers to Mr Goldbar busting out his finest dance moves (they also got full songs from Yelawolf, The Suzan and Donnis). There were a bunch of other photographers and party professionals there to capture us at our best: check these shots from Mel Cole / Village Slum (here and here), Metromix, Kirill Was Here, Nicky Digital, Hi Fi Cartel, LTD Mag, Bongo Boy (with a Yelawolf interview too), iNime, Mr Mort’s favorite crowd looks, a bunch of YouTubes from br0nxr0yaltii, Slow Roast-ed footage from Tim Nolan, OkayPlayer vid and some pics and video from Dante Ross. If you’ve got more shots or footage, leave them in the comments!

Thanks to the crew at City Winery and all our production / promotion partners Scion, Jelly NYC, The FADER, LTD+, and Bushmills, all the FG soopa interns, and a giant Mr Goldbar bear hug to FG homegirl Dnyce for all her help behind the scenes. We’ll be back with more parties very soon! After the jump, some of our favorite Day Off moments. Read More

Jokers Of The Scene European Tour + New Remix

Posted on Sep 17th, 2010 by Mr Goldbar

Jokers Of The Scene head back overseas next week to kick off their “No Gods, No Tour Managers” trek. The duo will traverse the old continent for a month, armed with only the best in dancefloor decapitators and mind expanders – including tons of new JOTS originals (which you’ll be hearing on FG very soon) and forthcoming remixes for the likes of Chromeo and Salem. Diversity!

While we’re on the topic of switching things up, the latest remix from Booth + Chameleonic’s beat lab is not a clubber at all, but a slow-rolling slice of Madchester-dipped psychedelia. JOTS’ “Treehouse Dub” of their old Ottawa neighbors The Acorn’s wonderfully named “Bobcat Goldwraith” is out this week as part of a new remix LP , but you can soak up all it’s washed out, 101 BPM glory right now thanks to our friends at RCRD LBL.

To rave things right back up, grab JOTS’ “Revolting Joks,” out now on iTunes, Beatport, and vinyl.
