Today Fool’s Gold records by DJ A-Trak, has announced its first venture into retail. The record label will be opening a store front in Brooklyn, New York, still this month. The store comes with “a French bistro-inspired retail experience, featuring a wooden bar where the taps have been replaced by fully-stocked record crates, custom wallpaper and art prints, and an ever-changing selection of exclusive new merchandise alongside rare finds from the FG archives. Equal parts vinyl mecca, gallery space and clothing boutique, 536 Metropolitan launches as an instant must-visit for music fans of all kinds.”
Of course they will not only stock music, but also other items, including some interesting collaborations. “The store opens with a collection of FG-designed luxury laptop, iPad and digital camera cases from the Italian compmany Pijama, with a line of audiophile-quality Fool’s Gold headphones (for DJs and iPod-ers alike) made by Copenhagen-based AiAiAi to follow this Fall. Yet before it’s even been officially announced, the most sought-after upcoming Fool’s Gold collab is a limited-edition Members Only leather jacket, as worn onstage by A-Trak and Dave1 of Chromeo. These items will also be available on FG’s new online store launching the same date as the shop.”
