Cardo is the peerlessly funky young producer who has provided smoked out soundbeds for a literal Who’s Who of rap’s new generation. After helping craft Wiz Khalifa’s sound on the beloved Kush & OJ and Taylor Allderdice mixtapes, and lacing everyone from Freddie Gibbs to Mac Miller with his signature grooves, Cardo reaches new musical heights on his debut EP, Everything I$ Gold. Get it now on iTunes!
It’s equal parts gangsta soul music, futuristic synthesizer trips, and unstoppable 808 bump, an awesomely region-less hybrid inspired by DJ Quik and Pimp C classics but rightfully belonging to one dude alone… Cardo on the beat! (For even more tracks, check out his Foolcast mix featuring two hours of Cardo’s production for other artists.)

Ever since Crookers first burst onto the scene with their uniquely muscular, totally tweaked take on dance music, they have been a fixture in the international scene, whether remixing gigantic pop stars, collaborating with underground heroes as Dr Gonzo, or plain ol’ rocking every festival known to man with a pair of USB sticks and an appetite for destruction. For the new Bowser EP on Fool’s Gold, their first original release as Crookers in almost two years (!!!), the duo returns with a brand-new take on the chunky club cuts that made you fall in love with them in the first place. From the title track’s tear-out techno madness to the stadium buildups of “Trillex” to the atomic hip-house of “Turn The Lights On” (a collab with Philly fast rap master STS), Crookers once again redefine “bangers” in their own image. Go crazy with ’em! Read More
Donnis takes club rap back to the future with his Break Hundreds & Hearts EP, a new-school bass masterpiece from an ATLien who grew up listening to the South’s legendary Dungeon Family lyricists and 2 Live Crew party starters in equal measure. Grab it now on iTunes!
From the floor-ratlling “Money Maker” and “Hello Kitty” to the insane strip club chant “Dog On The Floor,” wildly catchy sing along “Every Damn Day,” and pure rhyme workout “Absolutely” (featuring like-minded young MCs IAMSU and Jay Ant – peep the video above!), Break Hundreds & Hearts shows off new dimensions of Donnis’ signature sound. Pop the trunk, turn up the bump, and keep Freaknik alive… Read More
A-Trak and Dillon Francis are back with a crazy remix package for “Money Makin’,” their fan-favorite summer anthem (complete with a beloved, dancing cash machine music video that put the ATM in EDM.)
Oliver Twizt’s “trap mix” leads it off, a massive bass monster that has been a highlight of A-Trak and Dillon’s DJ sets at HARD Summer, Camp Bisco and countless other dance events this year. New hotshots Barjo & Alban Lipp crank things up waaaay louder with a stomping, heavyweight mix. And hip hop legend (and hip house pioneer!) Mark The 45 King brings it all home with a joyful breakbeat collage on his “Bonus Beats Mix,” transporting the festival rave back to the park jams where it all began. Grab it now on iTunes and Beatport!Read More
Style Of Eye is one of the most trustworthy names in dance music: each new release is as on point as the last, managing to surprise with new sounds and dependably BANG in nightspot and festival settings alike.
His newest for Fool’s Gold, “Ray Dee Oh” is a perfect synthesis of pop piano riffs, synthesizer zaps and gigantor rave drums, with Gina Turner’s chopped up, warped disco princess vocals helping tie it all together. The cheekily titled AM and FM mixes (along with the relentless club version) offer something for everyone, with “Norway” providing the perfect chill-out-room closer to this EP. Tune your dials to SOE and lock in for this one – grab “Ray Dee Oh” now on Beatport!
