Vancouver upstart Sleepy Tom makes his Fool’s Gold debut today with The Currency, four tracks of high-powered electro house out today on Beatport!
Yung Sleepy has quickly proved himself a master of all things massive. His hometown parties and DJ sets alongside some of electronic music’s biggest names have earned a rep as Canada’s funnest. His internet incinerating bootlegs and official remixes (including an especially chunky take on Diplo’s “Set It Off”) can be heard everywhere from BBC radio to festival stages around the globe. And now with his first EP, Sleepy Tom takes his taste for overdriven laser riffs, donk’d out kick drums, and all manner of speaker-zapping dance music to an even higher level of OOMPH.
Pick it up now, and check out these snippets for a taste…

Swedish rave genius Carli has been destroying clubs for years: first as the curly half of remix superstars (and Robyn collaborators) Savage Skulls, then as one of the mad scientists behind Crookers’ collabapalooza Dr Gonzo, and lately with his own wonderfully out-of-control solo productions.
His brand new “Look Up” is the latest evolution for Carli’s sound, welding throwback diva vocals and piano stabs onto hypermodern, stadium-worthy laser beam beats – a “secret weapon” that has had fans salivating ever since A-Trak and other big dog DJs began spinning the demo in their festival sets around the globe. B-side “Mind Control” keeps the time machine set on stun, with chopped up breakbeats and voodoo ray vibes mashing up against Carli’s signature big-room kicks and ecstatic synth riffs. These two tracks make the “Look Up” single on Fool’s Gold a DJ must-have, and a guaranteed party-starter in any decade. Get it now on Beatport!

The brothers of Sweet Valley fall even deeper down the beat rabbit hole on Jenova, their follow-up to Stay Calm and Eternal Champ. The duo’s beautifully dusted music takes a darker direction on Jenova, but their knack for untamed, unexpected textures (guitar feedback, girl group harmonies, trap hi-hats, Rambo noises) and ADD spirit keep the Sweet Valley vibes as lively as ever. Trip out to this…
