Fool’s Gold Clubhouse!!!

For practically five years running, Brooklyn-based label Fool’s Gold has continued to find new ways to excite and surprise their fans, whether it’s releasing new music ranging from Duck Sauce to Danny Brown, throwing massive free parties like their annual Day Off events, opening a retail store in Williamsburg (home to everything from tie dye logo tees to FG x Members Only leather jackets), or most recently, launching a premium digital subscription service with drip.fm.

The latest multimedia project from the DJ braintrust of label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs is the FOOL’S GOLD CLUBHOUSE, a series of festival stages and free monthly compilations featuring Fool’s Gold artists and extended family. The first Clubhouse stage takes place at New York’s Camp Bisco on 7/14 before taking over music festivals around the globe all summer, and the debut Clubhouse compilation is available starting today on the Fool’s Gold website, with new volumes to follow each month.

“Our friends and peers are having a very exciting and prolific moment right now,” says Nick Catchdubs. “As the world goes crazy for all things ‘EDM,’ its important to showcase the diversity that’s out there in dance music on all levels, and curate these songs and stages with the Fool’s Gold touch. A-Trak and I really get to be fans ourselves as we put these together, thinking about how good it’s all going to sound when it’s played loud.”

Teaser: Telephoned – “Ring Ring”

If you consider “pop” a dirty word, Telephoned are the filthiest act you’ll hear all year. Somehow, frontwoman Maggie Horn and producer / DJ Sammy Bananas still manage to turn even the guiltiest of radio pleasures into indie-approved party jams we can all be proud of. Ring Ring is their first EP of originals on Fool’s Gold, harnessing the good-time energy of the group’s cover-heavy mixtapes and live sets to fuel three brand new songs that gleefully hopscotch from new-wave inspired r&b (“Last Time”) to shuffling funky house (“The Vow”) and the title track’s roller rink disco vibes. There is a smoke machine. Get involved…
Telephoned will be celebrating the release tonight with a live performance at Hotel Chantelle in NYC, showing off the moves they honed opening Chromeo’s sold-out Business Casual tour, and the infectious stage presence Pitchfork called “the most fun thing we saw at SXSW.” Win Win (Vice) and Skinny Friedman will also be DJing the party.

Kid Sister – “Gucci Rag Top” remix feat. Danny Brown

After some serious time in the studio working on her next full-length album, Kid Sister is releasing a new EP, Kiss & Tell, on November 29th on Fool’s Gold Records. The MC born Melisa Young not only spent 2011 tearing down shows all over North America – from the Magic 8 Ball tour with A-Trak to NYC’s 80,000 deep Electric Zoo festival – but managed to bring that boundless on-stage energy to sessions with some of today’s most exciting producers.

The EP offers four of Kid Sister’s latest tracks with a diverse crew of collaborators. “Mickey” is a club workout from heavy hitting DJ/producer duo Nadastrom (Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom who are currently helping pilot Skrillex’s sold-out Mothership tour), while “Hide N Seek” pairs Kid Sis with rap absurdist Riff Raff and bass maestros Sinden & 5kin&Bone5. Hip-hop hero Scoop Deville (Snoop, Game, Fat Joe) mans the boards for “Cliq Claq” (as featured in Stella McCartney‘s recent runway shows) as well as a brand-new remix of “Gucci Rag Top,” now featuring a guest verse from fellow Fool’s Gold rapper Danny Brown.
