DJ / production polymath Sinden is a consistently welcome presence in our speakers, connecting the dots between genres, eras and VIBES like none other, year after year. He’s been an extended Fool’s Gold family member since day one, and we are excited to welcome him back to the label with the Ring Around The Moon EP, dropping this Tuesday (7/2) on Beatport.
Ring Around The Moon is a collection of extremely self-assured house and techno cuts that manage to be deep and dangerous at the same (damn) time. The unexpected kinks and textures of “Almost Gone” (premiered today by The Fader) and “Mathmatical” mark new territory for Sinden, while the title track (featuring vocals from underground superstar Mykki Blanco) is a mood masterpiece of hypnotic organ riffs, jacking percussion and sampled baby cries. Turn off the lights and get galactic…

Drvg Cvltvre has been living up to his name with freaky edits (including one for our own Jokers Of The Scene), remixes and original tracks. He put together a DJ mix for our FOOLCAST series, and it seriously bumps. If you’re asking about a track list, Mr Cvltvre explains this was “recorded live, so I’ll have to shazam it :-)”
