FOOL’S GOLD: THE FUTURE OF NORTH AMERICAN CLUB MUSIC
– SXSW & WMC showcases in March

– “Screaming Bloody Murder” tour featuring A-Trak, Sinden and Steve Aoki in April

– Smash new releases to follow!

With a slew of singles over the past year that connect the dots between hip-hop and electronic music, and a sold-out tour last fall, upstart Brooklyn record label Fool’s Gold-founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs-has established itself as the face of today’s club scene and the indie to watch, capturing the hearts of Pitchfork and Billboard, and turning Kid Sister into a new-era MTV icon.

This Spring, the label brings it’s midas touch to the road once more, as it gets ready to introduce a shiny new batch of genre re-defining artists.

The Fool’s Gold SXSW showcase at Volume (614 E. 6th St) on Saturday, March 15th is one of the festival’s hottest tickets, featuring live performances from Chromeo, Kid Sister, and new FG addition Kid Cudi, with DJ sets from A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Jokers of the Scene, and Nick Catchdubs.

On Friday, March 28, the label invades Miami with a Fool’s Gold WMC showcase at White Room (1306 N Miami Ave) starring A-Trak, trendsetting UK house phenom Sinden, as well as LA Riots, Jokers of the Scene, Treasure Fingers, Nacho Lovers, Sammy Bananas and Nick Catchdubs.

The party continues with the “Screaming Bloody Murder” North American tour kicking off April 10th at Hiro Ballroom in NYC with triple-threat headliners A-Trak, Sinden, and party king Steve Aoki, along with Sammy Bananas and very special guests in each city.

Of course all this buzz would be meaningless without the music to back it up, and the new releases from Fool’s Gold more than justify everyone’s enthusiasm.

Kid Cudi’s melodic “Day ‘N’ Nite” and Jokers of the Scene’s rave anthem “Y’all Know The Name” are currently heating up the charts of progressive club and radio DJs worldwide. More massive, dancefloor-ready singles are ready to go from the label’s latest batch of North American signings: Treasure Fingers, LA Riots, Trackademicks and Nacho Lovers. Not to be outdone, Fool’s Gold is also set to drop special edition releases from international collaborators Kavinsky (France), Bag Raiders (Australia) and Congorock (Italy). Of course, Kid Sister’s debut LP Koko B Ware (on Downtown/Fool’s Gold) and the first Fool’s Gold label compilation are in the works as well.

PRESS ON FOOL’S GOLD:

It sounds sort of futuristic, but at the root of it all is a hankering to return to the roots of hip hop music-good vibes and rocking the party. – Dazed & Confused

In a word, the show was awesome. – Billboard, on the Fool’s Gold CMJ Showcase

DJ/entrepreneurs A-Trak (aka Kanye’s DJ) and Nick Catchdubs, head honchos of upstart label Fool’s Gold, understand the value of the total package. The music they release and the artwork they use to promote it is bright, colorful, energetic, fun-loving, and childish (in a good way). And, most importantly, charmingly nerdy. – Pitchfork
