Fool's Gold Foolcast (podcasts)
The latest and greatest from Brooklyn-based record label Fool's Gold, founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Featuring exclusive DJ mixes from FG artists and friends, new music, live cuts, interviews and tons of surprises.

Longtime FG homie Vin Sol (of CALiGULA) recently made the leap from his native SF to good ole Brooklyn. Hangin out on the reg, good times on the reg, records on the reg!

His mix collects favorite 12" digs since the big move (and spending every weekend hitting flea markets with Dust La Rock). A tasty collection of disco nugs, forgotten pop, jheri curl r&b, and more - not about obscure records, just fun ones, which has always been an essential component of the Fool's Gold approach to music.

FOOLCAST 006 - LIVE @ FOOL'S GOLD x LTD HOLIDAY PARTY PT 2: JUST BLAZE The second hour of live mixes from our 2009 Holiday Party comes courtesy of Just Blaze, who kicks things off with some of his Roc A Fella anthems and other signature productions, before segueing into a set of house classics and unexpected bangers new and old. "House Of God," Cajmere and more - even a crazy Jay Electronica flip!

We've been dying to work with Just on the uptempo tip ever since the label first started - we knew there was a secret Jersey clubhead underneath all that Polo (the Percolator and "Beat That Bitch With A Bat" refs on those Rah Digga and Joe Buddens tunes had to have been for a reason!) and this set proves us right. Download and fist pump away...

FOOLCAST 005 - LIVE @ FOOL'S GOLD x LTD HOLIDAY PARTY PT 1: MAX GLAZER & THE BROTHERS MACKLOVITCH 2009 was another great year for Fool's Gold, and we wanted to celebrate with our fam, friends and supporters. So we teamed up with LTD Mag to throw our annual holiday party and it was a doozy!

Even with a full-on blizzard blanketing snow over the streets of NYC, we packed out the Etnies showroom and rocked to DJ sets from Just Blaze (playing an all-house set), Max Glazer, and FG's own the Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak and Dave1), Nick Catchdubs, and Trackademicks hosting on the mic all night.

To close out the year, we're posting up two hours of live recordings from the night: first up is Max Glazer inna dancehall style and the Macklobros dropping hip-hop hits of yore. Enjoy!

FOOLCAST 002 - CONGOROCK "THE FURIOUS YEARS" Volume 2 of the FOOLCAST series comes from none other than our own electro prodigy Congorock, but it's not what you might expect. We listen to all kinds of stuff at FG HQ and want the FOOLCAST to reflect that - so we asked him to put together a mix of some of his punk and hardcore favorites that would show off a different side of his personality and keep things musically unpredictable on the blog.

Says Rocco: Hey brothers, here's my hardcore punk mix for Fool's Gold. I wanted to call it "The Furious Years" like something related to the past - its old stuff (nothing after 2003) that I listened to when I was younger. It was total fun working on this because I rediscovered music I didnt remember at all! I put some tracks from my old bands (La Quiete and Death Of Anna Karina), Steve Aoki sings on the This Machine Kills track (his old band), and there's even a His Hero Is Gone track called "Fool's Gold". I hope you like it!
