While the music industry lounges through another off-season of vacation days and long weekends, Fool’s Gold has spent their summer adding a brand-new roster of DJ / producer superstars to the team. DRAFT PICKS announces this formidable squad to the world in the form of a free, downloadable BitTorrent Bundle of mp3s and digital collector cards for each artist (complete with highlight stats and stick of gum!).
From fresh finds and SoundCloud phenoms to established talents making big-league creative leaps, DRAFT PICKS features the most exciting and diverse lineup of DJs and producers currently working, all united together under the FG umbrella. Where else would Salva’s hyper club hybrids make sense against Shash’U’s “power funk”? TroyBoi’s widescreen trap epics vs Giraffage’s Tumblr-ready dreamscapes? Brenmar’s bass-fueled r&b hand in hand with High Klassified’s next level head nodders? Hoodboi’s frenetic remixes next to gLAdiator’s festival anthems? DRAFT PICKS is a 360 dunk of next-level dance music stopping all questions in their tracks.
Download DRAFT PICKS music and more at foolsgoldrecs.com/draftpicks, and see these artists live at all the Fool’s Gold DAY OFF events this year in New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Miami. Check fgdayoff.com for full lineups and ticket info. Read More

Low Pros’ debut EP1 is out today on iTunes featuring new amped-up remixes from gLAdiator and TWRK (as well as exclusive unreleased instrumentals) for maximum low end enjoyment. The supergroup of A-Trak and Lex Luger linked in Atlanta for non-stop recording sessions with fellow producers Metro Boomin (Future, YG), Brillz and FG’s very own High Klassified, then enlisted everyone from new-school superstar Young Thug to dirty south legend Juvenile to add their magic to the mix. The results take the trap sound Lex literally invented into outer space, raising the bar for hip-hop and electronic productions alike. Grab the EP on iTunes now (and represent in your very own Low Pros tees from store.foolsgoldrecs.com).

When DJ superhero A-Trak joins forces with vanguard production duo Milo & Otis, lock up your stereo equipment… NO BASS IS SAFE. Their irresistibly anthemic collaboration “Out The Speakers” is the first official team-up from these two festival forces (following M&O’s beloved remix with Skrillex and Kill The Noise of Trizzy’s Duck Sauce single “NRG”). They slow down the BPMs to make a speaker-bursting, apartment-evicting monster constructed from screwed rap vocals from ATL’s Rich Kidz, twerked out drums, and what is perhaps mankind’s first recorded “burp drop.” If that’s not enough, festival freaks Caked Up provide a rave-ready uptempo remix, while LA duo Vindata sneak in R&B finger snaps and drum programming worthy of the So So Def Bass All-Stars. Tweeters beware!
Get Out the Speakers now on iTunes, and don’t forget to grab new A-Trak tour merch now in the FG store and catch A-Trak this month on the Gold Gone Wild tour!
