Sweet Valley is Nathan Williams (Wavves) and his brother Kynan, two bongwater-soaked beat geniuses making rap instrumentals that feel like melted PlayStation games. MNDR is a one-of-a-kind artist and songwriter versed in Britney and breakcore in equal measure. Put them all together with producer Peter Wade and Dance 4 A Dollar is the result, a darkly catchy Cali masterpiece. SV chop up strip club 808s and woozy synths like they’re reclaiming trip hop for the DJ Mustard era, while MNDR explores the underbelly of radio songcraft, finding the creepiness inside champagne anthems and and coating tales of teenage nihilists with Rihanna-worthy ear candy. Decay never sounded so sweet… get it now on iTunes!

Raised in New York City and now living and working in Los Angeles, 19 year old phenom Leaf personifies the modern young multi-hyphenate: writing and producing her own music, directing and editing her own videos, and even designing her own MBM clothing line. Yet what sets Leaf apart from her DIY counterparts is a raw, undeniable personal charisma and seductive artistic vision, both of which are captured in peak form on the new Magnet Bitch EP, available today on iTunes and for free download at foolsgoldrecs.com/leaf.
Vicious raps and ethereal, angelic vocals shove back and forth over goth-ed out sub bass throughout Magnet Bitch (named after Leaf’s self-proclaimed “magnet bitch movement” of female solidarity) making for a captivatingly quick, must-rewind listen. From the swaggering “Drama” to the acoustic coda of “Slick” and the spacey kiss-off anthem “Calling Me Like,” Magnet Bitch captures the many moods of Leaf in hi-def, and sets the stage for her upcoming Fool’s Gold full-length.

Together, this duo has managed to craft one of the most triumphant records of this young year. Keep on! Get “Pusher” now on iTunes and everywhere digital music is sold.

Sammy Bananas means business. This Fool’s Gold OG has proven himself as a master of the club jam, writing tunes that pay respect to dance music’s past while simultaneously charting it’s quirky, funky future. “Money Time” is his latest hybrid single, weaving vocals from new school divas Antony & Cleopatra over a chunky, pulsating slice of piano house. It’s as dancefloor (and dare we say, radio) ready as anything from the likes of Duke Dumont or Kiesza, but with a pleasantly odd heart that’s 100% Sammy. The remixes are no slouch either: peak-time heat from festival mainstay Wax Motif, jacking vibes courtesy Colorado’s Option4, and a wonky, unclassifiable bass version from Durkin that’s already a FG favorite, keeping this “Money Time” package paid in full.
Get Money Time on iTunes and shop all things Sammy Bananas on our webstore! Check out the flyer for the release party for Money Time and tour dates after the jump.
