Fool’s Gold’s resident dance pop duo Telephoned slow down the BPMs for “Last Time,” a swirling end-of-summer jam built on jumprope melodies and Aqua Net synth lines that you’ll be humming well into next year. Get it now on iTunes!
Sammy and Maggie’s new wave funk gets cranked to the max by an expert roster of remixers: Krystal Klear drags the song into proper New Jack Swing territory (complete with Seinfeld-ian slap bass!), Amtrac turns up the tempo with his club-ready disco house mix, while Kutkorners provides a closing credits-worthy boogie slow burner. Major Lazer’s buddy JR Blender even shows up to the party with a sweet lover’s rock version of Telephoned’s “The Vow,” serving as a perfect postscript to this must-listen remix collection.

Cardo is the peerlessly funky young producer who has provided smoked out soundbeds for a literal Who’s Who of rap’s new generation. After helping craft Wiz Khalifa’s sound on the beloved Kush & OJ and Taylor Allderdice mixtapes, and lacing everyone from Freddie Gibbs to Mac Miller with his signature grooves, Cardo reaches new musical heights on his debut EP, Everything I$ Gold. Get it now on iTunes!
It’s equal parts gangsta soul music, futuristic synthesizer trips, and unstoppable 808 bump, an awesomely region-less hybrid inspired by DJ Quik and Pimp C classics but rightfully belonging to one dude alone… Cardo on the beat!

Ever since Crookers first burst onto the scene with their uniquely muscular, totally tweaked take on dance music, they have been a fixture in the international scene, whether remixing gigantic pop stars, collaborating with underground heroes as Dr Gonzo, or plain ol’ rocking every festival known to man with a pair of USB sticks and an appetite for destruction. For the new Bowser EP on Fool’s Gold, their first original release as Crookers in almost two years (!!!), the duo returns with a brand-new take on the chunky club cuts that made you fall in love with them in the first place. From the title track’s tear-out techno madness to the stadium buildups of “Trillex” to the atomic hip-house of “Turn The Lights On” (a collab with Philly fast rap master STS), Crookers once again redefine “bangers” in their own image. Go crazy with ‘em! Read More

A-Trak and Dillon Francis are back with a crazy remix package for “Money Makin’,” their fan-favorite summer anthem (complete with a beloved, dancing cash machine music video that put the ATM in EDM.)
Oliver Twizt’s “trap mix” leads it off, a massive bass monster that has been a highlight of A-Trak and Dillon’s DJ sets at HARD Summer, Camp Bisco and countless other dance events this year. New hotshots Barjo & Alban Lipp crank things up waaaay louder with a stomping, heavyweight mix. And hip hop legend (and hip house pioneer!) Mark The 45 King brings it all home with a joyful breakbeat collage on his “Bonus Beats Mix,” transporting the festival rave back to the park jams where it all began. Grab it now on iTunes and Beatport! Read More
