Malente! It’s a nightlife name you can trust.
Just check the playlists of folks like Fake Blood, Crookers, Steve Aoki, and Tiga. Or the remix discographies of Armand Van Helden, Bob Sinclair, Dada Life and more. Why not peep the Beatport, Juno and German club charts, where his original singles like “Music Forever” and “Lions / Gypsy Kings” (with production partner Dex) have been posted up top throughout the Summer? Shit, just give a listen to the ecstatic crowd shrieks for his sets at Shambhala and packed festivals around the globe.
Point is, if there’s a dancefloor fire getting started somewhere – anywhere! – a Malente tune has probably had something to do with it. Which is why we’re excited to present the latest chapter in his blown speaker saga, “I Like It,” a club anthem that captures all the raved-out energy of Malente’s previous work and adds a cheeky disco twist that’s right on time.
Remixes come courtesy of Trouble & Bass youngster Mikix The Cat and rising mixmaster Riva Starr, who’s housey, Roule-inspired flip has already become a live staple of A-Trak (who features it on his Duck Sauce Mixmag covermount CD this fall) and other big dog deejays. These three versions of “I Like It” make for an instantly playable, party starting package that you need in your life THIS INSTANT.
More club madness from Fool’s Gold coming soon…

Jokers Of The Scene’s recent remixes for the likes of Mika, Acid Girls and Burns have been making waves in forward-thinking DJ sets and blog charts alike. But it’s their original tune “Baggy Bottom Boys” that has become a signature anthem – an enormous dance track that’s as moody as it is ecstatic. It’s a perfect introduction to JOTS, whose sound continues to mutate from straight-up club bangers into a deeper, darker strain of electronic dance music that’s completely original and exciting.
The “BBB” video captures all these contrasts and complexities in glorious, stroboscopic black & white, filmed at two particularly wild JOTS shows in Boston and Ottawa by Julian Wadsworth (aka Red Foxxworth) and chopped up with glee by LA-based video vanguard Demonbabies.
To go along with the clip, Fool’s Gold is releasing a digital “Baggy Bottom Boys” remix EP, featuring brand new mixes by High Contrast, DZ, Rob Threezy and JOTS themselves – and a “pianopella” for the mixers! Grab it on iTunes, Beatport, and anywhere else fine digital music is sold (along with all the other JOTS releases and remixes on Fool’s Gold). More big news soon!

Alexander Robotnick means “Alexander The Worker” in Russian, and it couldn’t be a more fitting moniker – his tunes have worked, jacked and shook down dancefloors for the better part of three decades. Cult hits like “Problemes d’Amour” and “Dance Boy Dance” continue to be spun by DJs around the world for a reason – they were ambitious, futuristic cuts when first released in the early 80s, and remain timeless club rockers today, continuing to influence modern producers almost note-for-note.
Fool’s Gold is proud to continue the Robotnick tradition with the exclusive North American release of his latest, “Obsession For The Disco Freaks.” The Fool’s Gold digital and 12″ single comes backed by brand new reworks from some of today’s current electronic masters: Nacho Lovers, Freeform Five and Li’ll Bo Tweak.

Juke and ghetto house hero DJ Gant-Man was part of the Fool’s Gold family from the start – his remix of Kid Sister’s “Damn Girl” was on the back of our very first release, quickly followed by production on Kid Sis’ “Switch Board” and shows around the country as her tour DJ and hypeman. So naturally, we are very proud to present Gant’s new solo single and debut FG artist release, “Juke Dat Girl.”
From his earliest 12″s on Dance Mania, to rocking parties around the world on the rave and club circuts alongside legends like Paul Johnson, Gant has been pushing his signature Chicago sound for almost two decades – mixing up rapid-fire juke beats while referencing all the house and disco classics that first paved the way. “Juke Dat Girl” is the latest development of Gant’s hybrid approach, slowing the BPMs down to a more universal tempo but keeping the hyper, party-starting energy intact.
The banging original also comes backed with two massive remixes – an amped-up rave version from the heavily buzzed DC duo Nadastrom and a groove-filled UK funky house rework from ex-Bugz In The Attic producers Greenmoney. The entire single is a DJ must-have, so pick it up now at Beatport (vinyl on its way) and work! And juke! And work! And juke…
Update: now on iTunes!
