Our pals in Ottawa Jokers of the Scene are resurrecting their Disconnected party! “After a three year hiatus, Ottawa’s original ‘electro’ club night has returned to host a new series of dirty ‘lectro and jackin’ houze events featuring some of the newest and biggest names in the game.” And to put their bass where their mouth is, the first new edition will feature special guests VNDLSM (Toronto) and La New Shit (Gatineau). Check it out on Thursday, Dec 20th at Heaven in Ottawa. The JOTS boys have recorded a new volume of their Disconnected mix series to promote the night, and even re-uploaded the old ones. Get all the fabulous zshares after the jump. Read More

Earlier this month we hit the road for the first ever Fool’s Gold tour, a concert spectacle featuring the A-Trak and DJ Mehdi tag team, Kid Sister, Kavinsky, and Nick Catchdubs, along with special guests the Cool Kids and surprise performances from Jokers of the Scene, Kid Cudi, Trackademicks, Peanut Butter Wolf, DJ Gant-Man, Pase Rock and MSTRKRFT. We left a trail of burst eardrums, broken hearts and flagrant room service recipts all accross North America – and we’ll be coming back for more real, real soon! Now on to the goods…

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

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.
