Trizzy Does Europe

Posted on Jun 12th, 2008 by A-Trak

Time for one of my long-winded tour novelas. I recently wrapped up a European tour that spanned the whole month of May, one which I arbitrarily named the Upper Crust Tour at the last minute, in honor of that beloved chain of sandwich shops found in almost all train stations. After doing a whole bunch of tours with other people — the Fool’s Gold fam, Mehdi, Kanye, etc — I felt like going off to clubland (Europe) and back to raw DJing practically every night for 4 weeks. Of course I wasn’t literally by myself the whole month. In most cities I was sharing bills with friends from either continent. But it did feel like a pilgrimage to the land of the DJ, and on off-days I would often link up with other producers and work on music. I loved it. I started a Flickr page towards the beginning of my trip so you can catch my full set of pics here. Let’s dive into it. Read More

A-Trak Runs Nike

Posted on Jun 10th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

We alluded to it back in March, now Pitchfork is officially spilling the beans about Running Man, A-Trak’s take on Nike+’s successful series of original workout jamz from the likes of LCD Soundsystem and other upstanding citizens. Running Man features 45 minutes of original music (and serves as A-Trak’s full-length production debut), Kid Cudi pops up for a guest spot, Dust provides exclusive digital booklet illustrations, and you can cop the whole thing on iTunes on June 24th.

Dust La Rock “Headhunter” Tee @ Threadless

Posted on Jun 10th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

I just read the history of Threadless on a plane this Sunday, and lo and behold, not two days later I wake up to find a spiffy new design by Fool’s Gold art director Dust La Rock featured on the site as one of this week’s shirts! Serendipitous to say the least. Grab your own “Headhunter” tee right here, and get more Duster-designed (Dustsigned?) garments over at the Fool’s Gold Webstore.
