Fool’s Gold redlines into spring with Night Shift, a 17 track compilation, of new dance music from the label’s latest signings and loudest family members. Since launching in 2007, the beloved Brooklyn indie founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs has pushed hybrid sounds to the forefront of the electronic scene. But Night Shift is the sound of a brand-new model year racing off the FG lot, shinier and heavier than ever. Listen to Night Shift now!
Lifelong friends and ATL trailblazers BOSCO and Speakerfoxxx have finally joined forces in the studio for Girls In The Yard, a new project presented by Fool’s Gold. With Speakerfoxxx providing a keen DJ’s ear for curation and production, BOSCO lets loose on the mic like never before, taking her love of classic 90s house, hip-hop, R&B and more to a futuristic new level. Premiered by Complex, the raucous, confident “Beemer” (produced by Mr. 2-17) opens the tape and sets the stage, a hybrid jam that will shake your hips, blow your whistle, and throw your hands in the air… Girls In The Yard is the shuffle mode dance party of the year. Pre-order GITY now to get “Beemer” instantly!
In the most cosmic sense of the word, Rome Fortune is Atlanta’s newest star. Green-bearded and crop-topped, 6’5” in cowboy boots, he takes the stage like an eclipse and flips straighforward bars into lunar poetry. But even with such otherworldly swagger, Rome’s music connects with fans because of how powerfully (and sometimes painfully) human it really is.
Jerome Raheem Fortune is the true story of this man who fell to earth. Rome’s Beautiful Pimp mixtapes (“rap as motivational speaking, generous and all-inclusive” – Pitchfork) and collaborations with everyone from turn-up trailblazers OG Maco and ILoveMakonnen to Four Tet and Toro Y Moi were merely the prelude to JRF’s nakedly honest storytelling.
Over loose, dreamlike tracks from longtime collaborator Cubby, Rome gets extra real about his struggles: his parents, his children, and their mothers… his dreams, his demons, and the drugs that may be fueling both. Even Kaytranada produced single “Dance” is an outlier, an uptempo song about escape rather than elation. Yet nothing on Jerome Raheem Fortune is a drag; over the course of 11 potent tracks, Rome Fortune presents hip hop catharsis at its most compelling. Head towards the outer limits of rap with a guide who is intimately familiar. Listen to Jerome Raheem Fortune here.
Dance legend Fred Falke lends his French touch to Rome Fortune’s debut Fool’s Gold single, grafting a feel-good disco groove onto “Dance” and creating a glittery house anthem for the ages. Premiered on FACT, listen to Fred’s take below and pre-order #JeromeRaheemFortune out worldwide on 2/26!
Fresh off a sold-out tour with Alessia Cara, Leaf is back with her first new music of 2016. But don’t get it twisted, there’s nothing pop or plastic about this one: “Ride” features Leaf as uncut and uncompromising as ever (“Damn girl you so nasty… love it how you call me daddy…”). Do what she says, and “Ride” this one ‘till the wheels fall off. Listen to “Ride” now.
Brenmar takes mobile macking to new levels with his latest single “She Already Know It.” The NY club king follows up last year’s epic Award EP with his steamiest track to date, creating the perfect setting for guest MCs Beatking, ManMan Savage and Jeff Chery to get inappropriate through the wire. Pass the aux cord and play this loud… watch the cameo-filled cell phone video now, and be sure to get tix for Brenmar’s Valentines’ Day b2b set with DJ Sliink at Good Room in BK.
Paris is home to some of dance’s boldest new heroes. DJ Snake, Tchami, and Point Point have become household names by adding their own twist en Francais to supersized electronic music, and they’ve all anointed Dombresky the next resident to rise. Fresh off a massive remix for A-Trak’s “We All Fall Down” and his Tchami collaboration “Freakin,” Dombresky cements his rep with the debut EP Reaching Perfection. These three tracks capture the OOMPH of garage/house while retaining the funkiness of great house music, peppered with a glitchy cleverness all Dombresky’s own. Listen to Reaching Perfection, and get in on this early!
