When A-Trak told Thump the History Of Fool’s Gold in Ten Songs, he singled out Congorock’s 2010 jam “Babylon” as a scene-transcending track that brought indie and big-room worlds together. Five years later, the tune still sounds immediate, epic and fresh. So why not celebrate?

Raised in New York City and now living and working in Los Angeles, 19 year old phenom Leaf personifies the modern young multi-hyphenate: writing and producing her own music, directing and editing her own videos, and even designing her own MBM clothing line. Yet what sets Leaf apart from her DIY counterparts is a raw, undeniable personal charisma and seductive artistic vision, both of which are captured in peak form on the new Magnet Bitch EP, available today on iTunes and for free download at foolsgoldrecs.com/leaf.
Vicious raps and ethereal, angelic vocals shove back and forth over goth-ed out sub bass throughout Magnet Bitch (named after Leaf’s self-proclaimed “magnet bitch movement” of female solidarity) making for a captivatingly quick, must-rewind listen. From the swaggering “Drama” to the acoustic coda of “Slick” and the spacey kiss-off anthem “Calling Me Like,” Magnet Bitch captures the many moods of Leaf in hi-def, and sets the stage for her upcoming Fool’s Gold full-length.

Afrofuturist B-Boy, remix alchemist, legit funk phenomenon… Montreal’s Shash’U is truly one of a kind. He’s been burning down stages from Boiler Room to underground street dance competition “Juste Debout” with a mix of wild style remixes and audacious originals that sound at once alien and familiar, turning even the poppiest of radio hits into breakbeat battle weapons. This approach has won Shash’U a rabid following and set the stage for his debut original releases on Fool’s Gold.
The moody Thru Da Night EP (available now for free download at foolsgoldrecs.com/shashu) melds cinematic synth lines with next level drum programming that drives EDM straight through Erotic City. Yet it’s only a teaser of the bass craziness Shash’U has in store on PWRFNK, his electro opus dropping 3/31. Both EPs will be collected on a limited-edition colored vinyl release featuring joint sleeve art by acclaimed comic book illustrator Ron Wimberly.
