The Poplife folks were recently profiled by Black Book magazine as “Miami nightlife kingpins” and gave props to the 2009 FG WMC showcase at White Room as one of their favorite parties in a decade of events. Thanks y’all! The trip is also responsible for the Dirty Hairy parties in MIA, who have hosted many a Fool over the past year or so. Check this clip from A-Trak and Treasure Fingers rocking during the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour.

Here’s some footage (shot by our dude Red Foxxworth no less) of Donnis’ mixtape release party under the Brooklyn Bridge. You had to have been there to feel the sweaty good vibes, but this gives you a little idea (plus Kid Sis + Nick Catchdubs check in with some cameo shouts). And if you haven’t grabbed Diary Of An ATL Brave yet… STOP SLEEPING! After the jump, check Donnis and Pill freestyling over “My Patna Dem” at East Village Radio. Read More

Jokers Of The Scene’s recent remixes for the likes of Mika, Acid Girls and Burns have been making waves in forward-thinking DJ sets and blog charts alike. But it’s their original tune “Baggy Bottom Boys” that has become a signature anthem – an enormous dance track that’s as moody as it is ecstatic. It’s a perfect introduction to JOTS, whose sound continues to mutate from straight-up club bangers into a deeper, darker strain of electronic dance music that’s completely original and exciting.
The “BBB” video captures all these contrasts and complexities in glorious, stroboscopic black & white, filmed at two particularly wild JOTS shows in Boston and Ottawa by Julian Wadsworth (aka Red Foxxworth) and chopped up with glee by LA-based video vanguard Demonbabies.
To go along with the clip, Fool’s Gold is releasing a digital “Baggy Bottom Boys” remix EP, featuring brand new mixes by High Contrast, DZ, Rob Threezy and JOTS themselves – and a “pianopella” for the mixers! Grab it on iTunes, Beatport, and anywhere else fine digital music is sold (along with all the other JOTS releases and remixes on Fool’s Gold). More big news soon!

Last week Fool’s Gold was proud to take part in Converse’s 1st annual “Band Of Ballers” tournament. As player/GM (ha!) I put together a scrappy team including Donnis and soopamanager D Solo, Sammy Bananas, and DJ Jayceeoh. NCAA experience, mustaches, high socks – we had it all. A-Trak suited up like a French Canadian Pat Riley on the sidelines as coach, and we took on the competition with championship swag while Cipha Sounds soundtracked it Miss Info and FG fan Peter Rosenberg did play-by-play. Did I mention there were video girls? Spectacle.
Game 1 was a resounding FG victory against the Mad Decent team, followed by a Game 2 loss to Jim Jones and fam. We still made the semi-finals though, where team FG sweated out a heartbreaker of an overtime loss (the only game to hit sudden death!) to Pac Div. They in turn lost to Jimmy’s team in the finals. Ah well, there’s always the next tourney. We played hard, had fun, and came away with a year’s worth of bragging rights against Diplo. Twitter that!
Check out the recaps from Village Voice, XXL, Dime, Complex, Nah Right and Miss Info’s blog. You can also peep our intern Loren’s exclusive pix from the stands. More links as we get em, Hot 97 video and some select photos after the jump. Read More
