Montreal’s High Klassified has been winning over fans thanks to astronaut-grade beats (as heard on his debut Fool’s Gold EP Palindroma, collabs with A-Trak and Lex Luger on the Low Pros project, and countless trippy SoundCloud jams) and equally next-level internet vids… what other producers do you know screaming French Canadian profanities live from a hang glider? HK’s worlds collide in this official clip for “Hyrule Kastle,” taken from the free Fool’s Gold BitTorrent bundle . Get surreal on the visuals, then come see High Klassified live at Fool’s Gold Day Off Toronto on Saturday, 9/6 alongside A-Trak, Danny Brown, Lunice and more.
