Can't fool me!!!

Have ya heard? There are some new Kids on the block, and we sure ain't talkin' about Donnie. Make way for the crew from the Fool's Gold side of the tracks (read all about it): Kid Sister, the Cool Kids, and latest signing Kid Cudi, along with KavinSky, DJ Mehdi, and label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs.

All of the above (minus Cudi) will take to the road in October as part of one hell of a party package tour. The Fool's Gold caravan rolls into Montreal on October 4 and doesn't slow down until it hits Toronto several weeks later (no worries, they dip into the U.S. in between). Along the way, A-Trak and Mehdi will tag team DJ, Kids Sister and Cool will drop rhymes, the others will do their respective thangs, and special guests will invariably turn up.

Following the omnibus tour, A-Trak and DJ Mehdi will jet to Europe for what's being billed as "The DJ Mehdi & A-Trak Spectacular Review".

Fool's Gold has a number of new releases burning up the dubplates in the months to come, including singles from the Cool Kids, Kid Sister, KavinSky, and Kid Cudi, as well as beats from abroad courtesy of Jokers of the Scene and Bag Raiders.
