LNDN DRGS drop another smooth cut off their upcoming free album Aktive. This one is called “Hop Out”, premiered earlier on Complex. Listen to it below and watch the video for “Susan” for some more of that fonk after the jump. Get ready to get Aktive Monday, November 23rd!
Premiered today on The FADER and produced by new beat hero Kaytranada, “Dance” is unlike anything we’ve heard from Rome before — a melodic anthem in the grand tradition of dance-my-pain-away jams.
The single is another pleasing curveball from this one-of-a-kind artist, who’s equally at home trapping in a jeep with ILoveMakonnen and Rich The Kid on “No Ma’am” as he is guesting on Four Tet tracks and popping up at Boiler Room.
With his first international tour on deck and the single release (accompanied by a unique app that lets Rome chat direct to fans – and put his blue beard on their own pics!) the future is looking very bright for Rome. Stay tuned for more as he puts his finishing touches on the “Dance” video and his highly-personal upcoming Fool’s Gold LP. Listen to “Dance” and check Rome’s tour dates after the jump.

Hoodboi is leading the pack of visionary young LA producers. His debut Fool’s Gold EP Palm Reader was an inspired, late-night take on international club sounds, bringing underground vibes to the masses while injecting his own unique brand of matrix-friendly dance appeal in the process. Now, the Athletixx producer gets taken for a spin himself on Palm Reader Remixes, featuring reworked EP tracks from his club-smashing peers. Vindata (Owsla) turn “By Ur Side” into a half-time masterclass in pitched vocals and triumphant laser riffs, while Alizzz (Mad Decent) drags “Shallow” into warehouse trap territory. The Lido-featuring title track gets three uniquely awesome versions: SIROJ funks out “Palm Reader” into a slow electronic strut, Fool’s Gold OG Treasure Fingers flips it into a modern garage house anthem, and Jesse Slayter cranks up the festival-ready #feels. It’s a wide-ranging batch of remixes that do justice to Hoodboi’s own high-res originals. We’ve gazed into the crystal ball… the future is bright!

A-Trak is everywhere these days. After selling out his second annual Gold Gone Wild tour, the #RealDJing champion brought Fool’s Gold’s hugely successful Day Off festival franchise across America, merging hip hop heavyweights with electronic music’s elite and capturing the sound of a generation in a way that only he can. As a Grammy-nominated producer, his discography is just as varied: in the past few months alone, he’s taken hip-hop futurism mainstream with “Out The Speakers” (featured in Mountain Dew’s Superbowl commercial and viral ad campaign) while reinventing EDM riffs with cheeky guitar-led single “Ibanez” and churning out ubiquitous remixes for Alesso and the Chainsmokers. But last winter’s solo outing “Push” marked the beginnings of a new signature sound for Trizzy, elevating all that dance world expertise with high-def emotions and mature songwriting.
With his new single “We All Fall Down” (out October 2nd on Fool’s Gold and streaming now) A-Trak follows the muse of “Push” even further into pure pop heaven. Featuring vocals from UK soulman Jamie Lidell, “We All Fall Down” transcends dance music’s genres and trends. It’s a welcome blend of throwback attitude (’80s electro soul, ’90s Chicago house, two-stepping Y2K chart toppers), thoroughly modern production, and earworm melodies that feel timeless from the very first listen. Play it now and check A-Trak premiering the tune as a “World Record” on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show.
