Yelp will rock you, A-Trak and Fool’s Gold

A few weeks back, my Saturday was all about the music.

Sure, this isn’t an entirely unusual thing for me, but still.

Yelp hosted one of its HUGE parties at the British Music Experience within the O2, serving up delicious treats from the likes of Gelupo and helping me to discover cornmeal crust from the fabulous Otto Pizza.

I was impressed by the interactive nature of the exhibition itself, with try-it-yourself dance pods and a ‘studio’ laid out with instruments for people to play. Much fun, though possibly not worth £15 had I been paying for entry.

Seeing as we were halfway across London ANYWAY (West is best kids), we tagged on a trip to XOYO – my first – to see A-Trak play. It was a ridiculously small room for an artist as big as him, and as such, was pretty special. He played a blinding set for almost two hours, and I could basically touch him. If I was that was inclined/some kind of weird super-fan.

Then last week, when the hunger pangs started to kick in, Mr Matt Brawn sent me a new mix from A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold label. Perfect. Play below and download to listen to whenever you like.
