Brooklyn just got a whole lot more Brooklyn, everyone. Today marks the official opening of Fool’s Gold Records, the store! The New York indie label launched by A-Trak and his pal Nick Catchdubs has, for years, helped to establish acts like Duck Sauce, Kid Cudi, and Kid Sister as some of the best music DJs have to offer. Back in April, A-Trak, who used to tour as Kanye West’s DJ, teased the store to BlackBook, saying “We’ll be selling all of our records, obviously, but at Fool’s Gold we do a lot of design and work with a lot of brands to make cool products, so pretty much anything we’ve designed or developed with other companies, we’ll be selling.” He also mentioned a launch party, which—guess what—is happening tonight.
From 5-7pm, at 536 Metropolitan, you can check out everything the store (which doubles as office headquarters) has to offer. That includes: a collection of FG-designed luxury laptops, iPad and digital camera cases from the Italian company Pijama, and, before it’s even been officially announced, a collaboration with Members Only to create a limited-edition leather jacket. Speaking of which, A-Trak, along with with his brother Dave 1 of Chromeo and Nick Catchdubs, will be celebrating the Members Only collab with some DJ sets and drinking later tonight at Westway, starting at 8pm. Should be some night!
