Now in its 19th iteration, Fool’s Gold Radio has been a must listen podcasts every month since its inception. On Number 19, A-Trak hands the decks over to Fool’s Gold partner-in-crime Nick Catchdubs who does the Fool’s Gold Radio name proud with 21 track burner of jacking bass. Jumping into the mix with Sammy Bananas’ bootleg of Justin Timberlake’s “Let the Groove In,” Bart B More’s “Jack,” and Tracques’ “In the Morning,” Catchdubs sets a frenetic tone early on. Bouncy electro is matched with cuts from Rustie, Bare, and UZ — delivering something noticeably heavier than A-Trak’s usual outputs.
Standout track: “MYNC – Searching (Benson & Motez Remix)”

A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold Radio is back for its 18th episode and features the eclectic mixture of music that has drawn upon my attention since its inception. In usual fashion, this roller coaster ride of music features a little bit of everything for everyone’s liking. You get remixes from Jack Beats and Les Rythmes Digitales on popular A-Trak collaborations “Landline” and “Tuna Melt.” Drake and Kendrick Lamar make their hip hop presence, although with reworks from Funkystepz Shapeshift and JayCeeOh. And of course your dose of nu-disco from Moon Boots’ remix to Bondax’s “Gold” and tech house from Chocolate Puma on “Get the Bone.” The Fool’s Gold label boss delivers a stellar monthly mix as always and continues to be the taste maker that he is.
After taking the month of December off, the beloved A-Trak is back with the first Fool’s Gold Radio show of the new year. Packed with his usual amusing commentary and a variety of house, electro, nu-disco, and techno cuts, this episode is yet another sixty-minutes of dance music heaven. Some notable tracks are A-Trak’s collaborations with Oliver and GTA on “Disco Nap” and “Landslide,” respectively — two tracks that went largely unnoticed on his recent Tuna Melt EP. Other songs to watch out for include the groove induced “M.Y.B” by disco maestro Oliver and Federico Scavo’s progressive tech house remix to David Jones’ ”Rhythm Alive.” Enjoy the full stream and tracklist after the jump.

Essential to festival sets from the likes of A-Trak, Crookers, and Nicky Romero, “I Wish” is a buzzing, eccentric jam that feels right at home on Fool’s Gold Records. As A-Trak asserted in the August edition of Fool’s Gold Radio, “This song is not by R. Kelly.” Instead, we get raspy vocals and carnal desires from a whimsical robot who most likely listened to the song “I Believe I Can Fly” one too many times. The reverberating robo-yearnings not only drew our sympathy, but also an uncontrollable desire to dance. Funkin Matt‘s funky joie de vivre is now available at 320 kbps. Just ask our favorite R&B urophiliac: “This is the remix to ignition, Hot and fresh out the kitchen.” Admit it, you continued humming the lyrics.
Another month, another impeccable Fool’s Gold Radio mix courtesy of scratch-addict A-Trak. There isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said about the Fool’s Gold Radio show - it is the embodiment of what it means to be a DJ. Eclectic, stylish and flawlessly mixed, A-Trak‘s latest outing is a lesson in what you should be listening to. Opening with the hauntingly beautiful remix of “All Your Gold” by Hercules and the Love Affair, A-Trak wastes no time showcasing a wide swath of sounds and styles. Featuring his latest collaboration with Lifelike, “Don’t Stop,” as well as cuts from Club Cheval, Tony Quattro, Van Toth, and more, A-Trak once again delivers a mix that will find a permanent home in our iTunes.

After nearly 14 months since its inception, A-Trak’s brainchild, Fool’s Gold Radio continues to deliver some of the freshest and funkiest tunes in dance music today. Interspersed with A-Trak’s casual humor, this hour-long mix genre hops from techno to acid house to chill wave and back again. It’s the perfect mix for those of us with iTunes ADHD. As always, A-Trak flawlessly mixes his favorites of the moment, taking us on a tour of his extensive library of choice cuts.
Stand out tracks include “ARYM” from Bromance Records resident Monsieur Monsieur, A-Trak and Tommy Trash‘s brand new track “Tuna Melt,” and Dancing Astronaut favorite Amtrac‘s “Never Dug Disco.” Staying true to the mantra that a DJ should play songs you’ve never heard, A-Trak delivers yet again – asserting himself as a true tastemaker in an increasingly vanilla scene.
Listen after the break.
A-Trak returns to the inventive and imaginative pastures of his monthly Fool’s Gold Radio show with a fusion of techno, electro, and oddly enough, some deep house towards the end. This time around he packs 24 tracks into a one-hour slot featuring a new collaboration between himself and Clockwork, Boys Noize’s newest single off his upcoming album, and dips into his bag of old-school goods with “Atomic Food” by David Guetta. The deep house tracks you hear at the end aren’t something you’d normally hear in one of his sets, but it’s an easy way to get to know him as an artist and see what he listens to in his free time. Jump past the break for the full tracklist.
A-Trak is back with another edition of Fool’s Gold Radio. The July mix offers one hour of funky versatility with tracks from WhiteNoize, GTA, Dillon Francis, and many more. Of course, your A-Trak fix will be met, this time with his remix of Justice’s “New Lands.” Not your ordinary commercial mix, Fool’s Gold Radio will land new artists on your radar and feed you new flavors to experiment with. Enjoy this fresh mix with humorous commentary from A-Trak and find the tracklist below the break.
