This year’s edition of the Fool’s Gold WMC Spectacular was our second consecutive year tearing down White Room in downtown Miami, and we finally got back all the pics and video documenting the fun-splosion. After a packed weekend of shows, we started the day bum rushing the Stones Throw pool party, killed a giant family dinner at the steakhouse, then hit the clurb. Along with all the FG fam rocking on stage (Sammy Bananas, Nick Catchdubs, Treasure Fingers, Jokers Of The Scene and Nacho Lovers – who took over the whole side room for a night of deeeeeeep house and techno) we played host to special guests Steve Aoki, DJ Mehdi, a rare Annie Mac x Fake Blood tag team, and hometown hero Craze, who ended his set by rocking with A-Trak in an epic impromptu scratch session.
We went the whole night long, staying packed long after the other shows closed down (and gave us second and third winds as the party people trickled in). Check the pics and video after the jump, and Ian Meyer’s full photo gallery here. Also peep A-Trak and Mehdi’s solo blog recaps. Read More

Recappery from our label showcase and the rest of WMC weekend coming soon!
Meanwhile check some of Bronques’ pics from the Bacardi B Live show with A-Trak, Chromeo, and Kid Sister, as well as Stones Throw’s pics from their Hella International party where the Brothers Macklovitch DJed (and Cosmo Baker met Cozmo D from Newcleus, Gaslamp Killer dropped dubstep heaters, Pase Rock styled on em, Dances With White Girls fell asleep, Catchdini proclaimed “Clipse album cuts will be to the next five years of Stones Throw WMCs what Ghostface album cuts were to the last five” and numerous other hijinks…)

The Fool’s Gold After Dark showcase in Austin last week was insane in every possible way, from the turnout (line down the block and around the corner all night!) to the tunes, as the whole roster dropped stellar sets packed with new joints and dence detonators. Even when the sound unceremoniously got cut during Mehdi’s set due to arcane Austin liquor laws, he still managed to smash it! Kid Cudi came through and surprised us with a quick set, fans and well-wishers included everyone from Clinton Sparks and Steve “Buddy” Aoki to MCs like Curren$y, Mistah FAB and Izza Kizza, and an amazing time was had by all.
Thanks to everyone at Scion, Palm Door/Beauty Bar and Red Stripe for lending a hand, and thanks to all the shutterbugs who put their pics on Flickr to make this wrapup possible, Catch lost his camera while crowdsurfing shirtless later in the week (smoove….) but the FG Flip cam made it back alive with video.

MTV’s Buzzworthy blog caught up with Kid Sis this past Tuesday at the shoot for her forthcoming Reebok campaign (which will feature a musical collab between KS and another member of the FG fam that we’ll be able to spill the beans on shortly…) check out their quick Q&A and photos.

Check out flicks of last week’s release party for Trackademicks’ “Enjoy What You Do” single thanks to photo galleries from Suckafreeze, Stash Magazine and Vessel. A who’s who of Bay DJs were in the building, along with Mistah FAB, Lyrics Born and…CUPCAKIN!
Don’t forget to pick up that Track single if you haven’t already – it’s available now at iTunes and all other digital retailers, and vinyl is en route.

This past Friday we had our 2nd annual Fool’s Gold holiday jam. Even with a NYC blizzard in full effect all day, the true believers came out to party with the FG fam and our special guests DJ Premier and Cipha Sounds. Kid Sister and Trackademicks cut it up on the dancefloor, Daniel LA Riots and Linus JOTS were spotted with Pepsi-n-Hennessy coctails in hand, Primo dropped “Hold It Now Hit It,” and a festive time was had by all. (Dust swears he saw Macaulay Culkin in the mix but I don’t believe him he needs more people).
Check out Ian Meyer’s gallery of party pics here, and some Trackademicks snapshots here. As a bonus beat, watch some interview footage John Brown (“KingOfDaBurbz”!) was filming at the party on his Flipcam.
