A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs aim for the upper deck.
Fool’s Gold is no stranger to high concept releases — look no further than that Loosies rap compilation that came out on a USB cigarette. For their latest compilation, the label has looked to throwback trading card designs, with stellar results.
Draft Picks highlights the newest producers under the Fool’s Gold umbrella, including club pros Brenmar and Salva, synthscaper Giraffage, and relative newcomers gLAdiator, Hoodboi, TroyBoi, Shash’U and High Klassified.
“To me, all these new signings represent the sound of 2014 and beyond”, says A-Trak. “We bring them in and they’re immediately part of the family.” Catchdubs adds: “We all work hard to make Fool’s Gold THE best home for new music. Whether that means giving emerging artists a bigger platform to innovate, or encouraging guys we’ve rocked with forever to get even crazier in the studio, all our acts are superstars to us – we had to make them cards to match!”
The free compilation is available as a Bittorrent bundle, with eight songs joined by statistic-filled “trading cards” for each producer and a stick of gum (you’ll see). Grab the Bittorrent bundle now.
