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.

FG’s near-decade of genre smashing good vibes can be directly traced back to the high spirits of label co-founder Nick Catchdubs. Hailed as “one of the US’s premiere party DJs” by FACT Magazine and a “Mr Do It All” by XXL, Nick has been pulling double duty as a nightclub and festival mainstay while helming Fool’s Gold with partner in crime A-Trak. Now Catchdini makes a bold leap forward as a producer with today’s release of his debut album, Smoke Machine.
Smoke Machine is a 34 minute blast of hyperkinetic beats and nitrous oxide raps. Alternate universe hip-hop superheroes riff on club hookups and pop culture WTFs: Liz Claiborne, Daria, spinning G-Unit chains, Jay-Z’s MoMa installation. “We blowing up spots like Bashir did to Jacko,” boasts Heems on “Full House,” and the man has a point. Smoke Machine detonates your expectations of a “DJ album,” propelled forward instead by Catchdubs’ own tweaked and explosive sense of fun. Get it now on iTunes or stream on Spotify!

Ta-ku returns to headphones around the globe this June with Songs To Make Up To, the long-awaited follow up to his 2013 beat suite, Songs To Break Up To. “Love Again” is the project’s first salvo, a collaboration with singer/songwriter JMSN and fellow bass expert Sango (Soulection) that lays handclap-ready gospel vibes all over Ta-ku’s signature, soulful knock. Songs To Make Up To marks a major artistic leap forward for the Perth producer, but like the song says, “Give it time, give it time / This ain’t no race.”
Pre-order now on iTunes to get “Love Again” instantly, and the full album on June 12 from Fool’s Gold / Future Classic.
