Last year’s maiden voyage of HARD’s Holy Ship! was a floating rave for the history books. So it’s only right that FG returned for the sequel (note the two exclamation points) and take Holy Ship!! over pirate-style once again. A-Trak, Oliver, Tommy Trash, Crookers, Dillon Francis, Baauer, RL Grime, Brodinski and even more of your favorite DJs got in on the action, check Josh Wehle’s recap video to see just how wavy it got. And for more aquatic action, peep Rukes’ photo galleries from days one, two and three.
Swedish rave genius Carli has been destroying clubs for years: first as the curly half of remix superstars (and Robyn collaborators) Savage Skulls, then as one of the mad scientists behind Crookers’ collabapalooza Dr Gonzo, and lately with his own wonderfully out-of-control solo productions.
His brand new “Look Up” is the latest evolution for Carli’s sound, welding throwback diva vocals and piano stabs onto hypermodern, stadium-worthy laser beam beats – a “secret weapon” that has had fans salivating ever since A-Trak and other big dog DJs began spinning the demo in their festival sets around the globe. B-side “Mind Control” keeps the time machine set on stun, with chopped up breakbeats and voodoo ray vibes mashing up against Carli’s signature big-room kicks and ecstatic synth riffs. These two tracks make the “Look Up” single on Fool’s Gold a DJ must-have, and a guaranteed party-starter in any decade. Get it now on Beatport!
Bohemian Groove is what happens when you let Jokers Of The Scene and Renaissance Man get together in the studio. Their debut 12″ “Hi Jinks / Low Jinks” is out today on Throne Of Blood (wax and digi) and is a great bit of fun for the naughty illuminati among you. Preview it here and on their Resident Advisor approved podcast mix.
Some of the illestdeep cuts in the Fool’s Gold catalog belong to the UK’s Kid Gloves. One half of KG is producer Anu Pillai, aka Freeform Five, who’s back with new solo single “Weltareh” today on the esteemed Eskimo imprint.
Read up about it here, and grab it on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine dance music is sold. To get in the mood, download this new FF mix featuring “Weltareh” and other worldly house jamz.
Our recent remix contest for A-Trak & Zinc’s Natalie Storm-featuring “Like The Dancefloor” brought in a slew of great entries, with Bad Mr Kitty’s laser-laced contribution named the victor. You can get it now on Beatport!

Western Tink and Beautiful Lou combined forces for the woozy, lo-fi “Trill Hoe” on our Loosies compilation, and now Tink (who lets be honest, has one of the best names in the entire rap game) drops this appropriately tweaked video for the cut, where he marauds through San Antonio with a Toys R Us ratchet on a robbing spree for Valentines. Hear more on his Bandcamp.
Few things make for more enjoyable reads than Danny Brown interviews. Pitchfork catches up with DB and talks Old, Chief Keef and lean; Complex gets his hysterically insightful take on fashion week looks from Rick Owens, Balmain and more. #STYLE.
