Montreal’s current beat renaissance is a melting pot of hybrid sounds and aesthetics as diverse as the city itself. Yet for all of the exciting electronic producers this new scene has spawned, no one is as unique a personality as High Klassifed. Armed with a Louis bag full of 808s, a half-full bottle of Hennessy, and melodies as stratospheric as his high-top fade, HK makes his Fool’s Gold debut with the striking Palindroma EP, out today on exclusive early Beatport release. The four hypnotic tracks showcase High Klassified’s signature stew of post-trap drum programming and luxurious, dreamlike synth lines, demanding repeat listens of the entire release. Come aboard and float away with Canada’s finest.
Montreal’s Black Atlass is a voice you can’t forget, charting new territory somewhere in-between modern R&B, experimental electronic production, and classic singer/songwriter confessionals. It pulses all throughout the new Young Bloods EP, six tracks that more than live up to their title with knotty chords, unexpectedly muscular beats, and the ethereal vocals that tie it all together. From “Blossom’s” handclap funk and the D’Angelo worthy boom bap of “Free Angel” to the primal howl of distorted closer “Jewels,” Young Bloods is the latest chapter in the story of a raw and electrifying new talent. Get it now on iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.

Sammy Bananas has been keeping Fool’s Gold funky since the label first began. Yet all his smash bootlegs, remixes and original jams (both as a solo artist and as one half of FG duos Fifteenth and Telephoned) were merely setting the stage for the brand new Flexin’ EP, a back-to-the-future blast of house, disco and R&B vibes blended together as only one Banana man can. It’s a master class in party music from a scholar of New Jack Swing.
As if these hybrid cuts weren’t fun enough on their own, we’ve pressed Flexin’ onto limited-edition colored vinyl, complete with mustachioed “Mr. Flex” cutout figure (designed by RAZAUNO) for maximum DIY dance party action. Sammy Bananas is in the house, literally in your house. Peep some action shots of Mr. Flex with A-Trak, Chromeo and more after the jump…
