Black Atlass continues his hot streak of new music on Fool’s Gold with the slinky creep of “Tonight.” Noisey premiered, the second in a trilogy of new singles from singer / producer Alex Fleming, “Tonight” is a showcase for this one-of-a-kind artist’s expansive palette. While late summer single “Haunted Paradise” was awash in guitar reverb and dreamy, impressionistic vocals, “Tonight” is all business: a stripped-down synth bass, pulsating kick, and Fleming’s unearthly falsetto conjoined somewhere between modern R&B and icy, drum machine-driven new wave. “Baby, tonight I wanna fall in love with you” has never been a more seductive threat. Listen to “Tonight” now!

As announced on The FADER, Grande’s new album My Brother’s Keeper will be hitting the world next month on 11/20.
In a sea of trend-hopping MCs, this Philly artist has confidently sailed his own wave since 2012, when Fool’s Gold founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs signed Grande on the strength of the self-released debut, 800. The following year’s free FG album Mugga Man pushed the envelope even further, and propelled GrandeMarshall into conversation amongst some of hip-hop’s biggest up and coming names. Working with the likes of Flume and Nadus while consistently putting out impressive solo tracks has earned this North Philadelphia rapper nods from the press and original heads alike. Yet My Brother’s Keeper is a new milestone for Grande – unhurried, self-assured, and deeply personal. Pre-order My Brother’s Keeper on iTunes now to get new track “Never Change” (produced by Heaven In Stereo) and more instantly.

Bow down to High Klassified, Fool’s Gold’s own bass lord and style king. The Montreal producer raised on 808s and RPGs takes his sound to weird new heights on the Kronostasis EP, picking up where last years auspicious debut Palindroma (“Sounds like anime looks” – Noisey) left off. “Okarina Of Time” and “Saccade Two” bookend the EP with double doses of 64-bit turn up, while “Saccade One” and “Gold” (featuring Chicago rising star Mick Jenkins) bring out a heady, jazzy side to HK that we’ve never heard before. Yet nowhere is High Klassified’s singular swag more evident than “Time In Vain,” and its creepy, cheeky must-see video. Kronostasis is where futuristic slaps meet one-of-a-kind personality: play it loud, follow HK on Snapchat (trust us), and stay tuned for more.

Listen to it it now, and get tix for A-Trak’s 12/12 show at Terminal 5 in NYC featuring Araabmuzik and (says Trizzy) “all the tricks and party rocking… the Hawaiian punch of events!”
