Whether reshaping LA’s dance scene for a new generation with his Athletixx crew, or delving into uncharted beat territory with solo tracks and remixes, California DJ/producer Falcons is a force to be reckoned with. Terra, his debut Fool’s Gold EP, showcases four cuts of imaginative, bass-driven songwriting that highlight Falcons’ confidence as a producer and collaborator, all while detonating the party like nothing else. After drippy summer jam “Aquafina” sets a tone with rap upstarts GoldLink and Chaz French, Terra bounces from rolling ragga hybrid “Flame,” guest-starring UK heroine Stush to the moody title track (built on Falcons’ own chopped and screwed vocals), before closing out strong with post-hyphy bomb “Boss Mackin” featuring San Francisco’s A-1. Terra is club music as its most elemental. Dig in…
Download Terra on iTunes and check Falcons live at Fool’s Gold DAY OFF in New York on September 7th (full lineups at fgdayoff.com).

ManMan Savage is young Atlanta’s next star, mashing dread-swinging charisma and mosh pit energy with real life grit. “Takin Shots” is his Fool’s Gold debut, following a series of self-released ATL favorites and appearances as a mainstay on the scene – that’s him starring in Future’s “Trap N****s” video and hitting the stage with ILoveMakonnen on his “Loudest Of The Loud” tour. “Takin Shots” is a clear leap forward for ManMan, whose screaming delivery (over a banging, post-apocalyptic beat from Chris Fresh of 808 Mafia) simply cannot be ignored. Download it on iTunes or stream it on Spotify!
See ManMan live at Fool’s Gold Day Off in Atlanta on September 5th and in Miami on September 13th (full lineups at fgdayoff.com), and also catch him on select dates of the #ScreaminDreamsTour with Key!

There’s nowhere in the world quite like Oakland, and there’s no one making music quite like L-Deez. Lamborghini Ferarri is his debut EP, featuring three wildly catchy tracks laced with curbside color commentary and a classic ‘80s rap vibe we haven’t felt in years. But don’t get it twisted, Lamborghini Ferrari is no time machine. With longtime FG fam Trackademicks providing the soundtrack, this EP hits a new sweet spot somewhere between Too $hort’s trunk tales, hyphy’s wild style, and the futuristic club sounds of today. Welcome to The Town, like you’ve never heard it before! Get it now on iTunes or stream on Spotify.

BOSCO is a force of nature. This Atlanta-bred singer/songwriter pulls from the rawest, headiest elements of R&B, dance and beyond, wrapping it all up with a relentlessly physical live show and and iconic personal style. It’s an electrifying approach that has made her a muse for music and fashion tastemakers alike. Now, following a streak of underground favorites (including “Slippin” from the Solange-curated Saint Heron compilation and the house-y Treasure Fingers collaboration “Names”), BOSCO makes her proper Fool’s Gold debut with the brand-new BOY EP, out 6/2.
Recorded in New York and fueled by the city’s sense of motion and unrest, BOY features some of BOSCO’s most emotional songwriting yet. The title “BOY” track is an icy mysterious groove (produced by NEVR & REO), buoyed by BOSCO and Jace (of fellow ATL upstarts Two-9), setting a tone for the EP’s many moods. Pre-order “BOY” now on iTunes and get ready to dive in deep.
