Our friends at iHeartComix, Mad Decent, and Fool’s Gold have joined forces for what seems to be THE party to attend this year at SxSW in Austin. Boasting by far the largest dance music lineup of the week, #SUPERPARTY will take place at the former Beauty Ballroom on Thursday the 14th and will be open to fans of all ages from noon until 2AM. We’ll, of course, be making this a stop on our upcoming #GDDRV tour, and after seeing this lineup, we couldn’t be more thrilled to attend our very first SxSW event.
Check out the full lineup with set times below! Continue Reading
A-trak‘s Tuna Melt EP unloaded a stacked collab package at the end of last year, with the self titled EP single w/ Tommy Trash taking things to festival fathoms. With remixes on deck, our Toronto-based friend and familiar Grandtheft has served up the trap treatment on this big room monster and the product is down right naaaasty. And wait, he’s giving it away for free? DAYUM SON, where’d you find this sandwich.
The Fool’s Gold family has always stood apart from its peers because of its wide appeal and complex sound. Labelheads A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs make it very clear through their curation that Fool’s Gold can be home to any music that they see fit, which is a perfect segue into the latest release on the label — a 22-track compilation titled Loosies featuring the likes of Juicy J, Jim Jones, Danny Brown, and many more.
“One of the things I’m most fond of with Fool’s Gold is our extended family,” says A-Trak. “Our foundation is in hip hop and the talent around us in incredible. Loosies is raw, unadulterated rap from the dudes who hang out with us backstage at Day Off.” Pick up the limited edition cigarette USB over at the Fool’s Gold Recs store today.

The deeper half of Dave Spoon aka Shadow Child has been on a warpath since his emergence in 2012. With an already incredible roster of production done this year, Shadow Child takes his new remixes for a ride: to the jungle for A-Trak & Zinc‘s “Stingray” and to the deep end for Miguel Campbell‘s new “Rockin’ Beats.” Both out on October 15th – do NOT sleep on these.

A bit of a delay on this because of EDC travel, but I felt the need to still throw this up today. Fool’s Gold bossman, A-Trak, has put a heavy touch on Justice‘s hit, ‘New Lands,’ creating a deep, crunchy new rendition of the poppy original. Already 40K+ plays on Soundcloud for this near 7-minute beast…
Happy Friday! Today’s news includes HARD Summer x Fool’s Gold, EDMBiz Conference, Martin Solveig, The Prodigy, & The Rapture/Pional. Stories, music, and videos after the jump.
