Brooklyn-based record label Fool’s Gold was founded in 2007 by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs and quickly established itself with a non-stop series of releases bridging the worlds of hip-hop and electronic music, introducing artists like Danny Brown, Kid Cudi and Duck Sauce to the world while being dubbed an “indie innovator” by Billboard, a “tastemaker label” by the New York Times, and “one of the most influential indies in the music business” by Pitchfork. With a clever and constantly evolving aesthetic for all Fool’s Gold visuals and merchandise, the company has become more than an independent music powerhouse, but a trendsetting lifestyle brand.
For seven years running, Fool’s Gold has continued to find new ways to excite and surprise their fans beyond records.
SOUL OVER EGO
Date of birth: April 23, 1993
The first song KALLITECHNIS ever released was Talk Talk Talk via Soundcloud in November of 2016: a soulful boom bap RnB joint reminiscent of the 90s. At the time, it served as a tester for KALLI to see if her music would resonate well with audiences. Thankfully, it did more than just that. It opened up the doors for opportunity.
She re-surfaced onto the scene in January of 2017 with an 8-bar feature on Lou Phelp's KAYTRANADA-produced track, Average. The song premiered on The Fader and was subsequently picked up by many more publications.
Since both songs had been received really well, KALLI channeled the positive feedback into inspiration for her debut EP [wet paint].
