Can U Dig It?

Posted on Jul 14th, 2008 by Dust La Rock

Maybe the reason I’m kicking myself for taking the time to listen to that Bathgate song Trizzy posted is because i don’t have pockets full of money. Or maybe because the hook sounds like it was delivered btwn bouts of sucking on helium balloons? But I digress. ANYways.. Hey young blog world, I’m back! Not sure if one previous post in the grand and dynastic Fool’s Gold blog history constitutes being here in the first place but seeing as how I have a moment to breathe (aka Alain and Nick are taking a tea break and have momentarily put down the chariots and whips) I thought i’d post up about one of my favorite bands. Namely, Pop Will Eat Itself which I will refer to as PWEI. Before I give a little history lesson, I thought you might be amused by the following anecdote.. Read More

Trizzy Likes… Bathgate

Posted on Jul 12th, 2008 by A-Trak

I spent the whole day at XXXChange’s crib working on a new track for the Kid Sister album, which is coming out crazy. When we finally left we got in the car and I heard this joint on the radio that sounded like Alex’s bassline from “Backyard Betty” with a Cool Kids-ish hook and a rapper that sounded like Young Chris. It’s the new Bathgate song, “Pockets Full Of Money”. I like!

“Mad Fools” Free In Central Park Next Sunday!

Posted on Jul 11th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Ever since we first started Fool’s Gold, we always considered Diplo’s Mad Decent to be our brother label in the North American music/DJ scene, and the feeling was mutual. We would constantly brainstorm ideas for ways our two labels could work together, and one of the most fun was a Post-It Note that simply read “MAD FOOLS RAVE IN THE WOODS.” We’re not quite there yet, but we’re getting closer with next Sunday’s (7.20) free Central Park SummerStage show, the first annual “Mad Fools” featuring Santogold, Diplo, A-Trak, Kid Cudi, Mz Streams with DJ Blaqstarr, and surprise guests. Get ready! And get there early – there will be free shirts featuring the above artwork by Dust La Rock and Mike Jones of Mishka. Afterparty details soon…

New LA Riots Mix

Posted on Jul 11th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

LA Riots have a fresh mix up for the dog days of July, featuring some new joints (A-Trak and Laidback Luke!) and vintage favorites. Quoth Daniel: “We were asked to do a mix for The Crystal Method’s Radio show on Indie 103.1 but I went a bit too housey/progressive with it towards the end and decided to make a new one for them.. this is the version that isnt going to air. After the show airs I will post up the other version.. which is straight m-u-r-d-e-r!” Download the mix here, and check out the tracklisting after the jump. Read More
