Tonight: Kingdom at the Barbary

kingdom barbary Tonight: Kingdom at the Barbary

Fools Gold / Nightshifters / Acephale artist Kingdom aka Kkingdomm will be bringing the heavy bass to the Barbary tonight.  Kingdom has been on a tear ever since I first heard OMG Michelle’s You Don’t Know Michelle produced by Kingdom in late 2007 or early 2008 and his first mixtape, posted here in May of 2008.  February saw his debut single Mind Reader released by Fools Gold.  In January he had a feature remix on L-Vis 1990′s United Groove. Needless to say his career is only going to take off with those 2 releases coming in the first quarter of 2010.

In February, Kingdom joined fellow Fools Gold artists, Spank Rock, Ninjasonik, Theophilus London and more at the famed Fabric Nightclub (the best club I’ve ever been to) and released a promo mix. If you haven’t, download it below. It’s a dubstep / bassline / bass heavy mix featuring plently of Kingdom’s own production and more.

Congratulations to Fools Gold

June 26th, 2008 · No Comments

fools billboard Congratulations to Fools Gold

Congratulations goes out to Fools Gold Records for being named one of the Indie Visionaries in the latest issue of Billboard Magazine.

Thanks to acts like Kid Sister, independent label Fool’s Gold is making inroads in monetizing hipster-hyped music. The label was co-founded in April 2007 by DJ Nick Catchdubs and Kanye West’s DJ, A-Trak, and has since grown to a roster of 15 artists whose active touring habits are perfect for keeping the party going.

Sensing a void in the marketplace, A-Trak and Catchdubs were at first simply looking to distribute music they’d heard in their electro-hip-hop-pop club circuit. Inspired by boutique labels like Nervous and Sleeping Bag, they began releasing singles and EPs digitally and on vinyl.

Be sure to check out Fools Gold on Rcrd Lbl for links to a new Nike+ mix by ATrak, a remix by JFK of MSTRKRFT of Kid Sister and more.
