Rome Fortune’s debut Fool’s Gold single “Dance” gets trapped out with a larger-than-life remix from rising Atlanta producer Richie Souf, just named by Complex as one of their 2016 Producers To Watch. Richie’s buzz is strong thanks to songs with ILoveMakonnen (“Where Your Girl At?”) and MADEINTYO (“I Want (Skr Skr)”) but this flip of “Dance” might be his most epic track to date, trading the original version’s uptempo bounce for oozing synths and half-time 808s that push the auto-tuned melancholy of Rome’s verses front and center. Stay tuned for more “Dance” remixes leading up to Rome’s new album Jerome Raheem Fortune, out 2/26 on Fool’s Gold.
Dancing diamonds and hypercolor predators clash in the glitchy and beautiful new video for Madeaux’ “Kill For Me,” taken from his debut Fool’s Gold EP New Wav.

Premiered on FACT, watch the video for “Kill For Me” above and listen to New Wav now!

Paris is home to some of dance’s boldest new heroes. DJ Snake, Tchami, and Point Point have become household names by adding their own twist en Francais to supersized electronic music, and they’ve all anointed Dombresky the next resident to rise. Fresh off a massive remix for A-Trak’s “We All Fall Down” and his Tchami collaboration “Freakin,” Dombresky cements his rep with the debut EP Reaching Perfection. Billboard premiered the first track “Hardcore”. These three tracks capture the OOMPH of garage/house while retaining the funkiness of great house music, peppered with a glitchy cleverness all Dombresky’s own. Get familiar, pre-order Reaching Perfection and get in on this early!
Promnite’s gonna love you down. As a founding member of LA’s Athletixx crew (alongside Hoodboi, Falcons and Kittens), he’s been mixing futuristic hip-hop, R&B and next level electronic sounds like only a true sensei of dancefloor seduction can. That same vibe fuels Promnite’s remixes and original productions, which bounce from basement house to slow-n-low collabs with beat kings Mr. Carmack, Alizzz and more. His Fool’s Gold debut “Work It Out” with Penthouse Penthouse might be the producer’s grooviest move yet: a slinky, vocoder’d soundtrack to “U UP?” texts and all your other after-midnight activities. Listen to “Work It Out” now and stay tuned for more from Promnite!
Gladiator can’t stop moving. High-powered sets around the globe have earned lifelong LA friends Daniel Goodman and Ian Johnson an international #SQUAD of loyal fans, while dance superstars (Skrillex, A-Trak, Major Lazer) and urban upstarts (Kehlani, Kid Ink, Dej Loaf) keep calling for the duo’s magic touch on remixes and collaborations. It’s been a whirlwind trip so far, but Gladiator’s new Transit EP (out 1/22) is a true milemarker: deeper songwriting, crazier sonics, and an even stronger distillation of that Gladiator spark. They channeled all the adventures of a non-stop life into five very cool, very chunky original tracks, with fellow journeymen Vindata, Mark Johns, Four Color Zack and more coming along for the ride. Won’t you join them?
