About Fool’s Gold:
Fool’s Gold is your new favorite record label. Named an “indie visionary” by Billboard magazine, the imprint was founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs as the natural extension of years spent sharing new music and brainstorming on various creative projects. “This DJ scene that we’re a part of in North America has influenced music scenes across the world, but ironically there aren’t enough labels that represent it,” says A-Trak. “That’s where Fool’s Gold comes in. A label where we can release Jokers Of The Scene and Kid Sister side-to-side without it being a stretch–and what’s great with Fool’s Gold is that it’s not forced, since we’re all just friends putting out each other’s music.” “To me, Fool’s Gold is the modern version of what labels like Sleeping Bag and Nervous were doing back in the 80s and early 90s,” says Nick Catchdubs. “They would put out house records and freestyle records at the same time as Black Moon or some experimental Arthur Russell single, and it all made sense. I want Fool’s Gold to represent the absolute best in club music on all levels.” Helping tie everything together is Brooklyn graphic artist Dust La Rock, whose original imagery for all Fool’s Gold logos and sleeve art provides a clever and constantly evolving visual aesthetic for the label.
