Danny is making headlines everywhere for his acclaimed new album Old (in stores October 8th) and sold-out shows with Action Bronson and Trash Talk, while A-Trak has spent the summer headlining festivals around the globe and putting the finishing touches on his long awaited Duck Sauce album. The tour’s mix of DJ mayhem and Detroit grit starts November 8th and criss crosses the west coast for five dates including the second LA edition of Fool’s Gold’s annual, free DAY OFF party. “Double Trouble” features two party starters at the absolute top of their game, you don’t want to miss out!

Fifteenth is the peerlessly groovy production duo comprised of Brooklyn’s Sammy Bananas and LA’s Thee Mike B. These funky souls are inevitably the life of the party wherever they go, so it’s only natural that the music video for “Yesterday” would capture their cross country vibe adventures for posterity. Get it now on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold, and check Fifteenth playing in Canada this weekend! On Friday (10/4) they bust up the Hi-Fi Club in Calgary and the next day (10/5) do it again at Green Room in Winnipeg
