A-Trak’s new single “We All Fall Down” is out today! 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. Listen to it it now, and get tix for A-Trak’s 12/12 show at Terminal 5 in NYC featuring Araabmuzik and (says Trizzy) “all the tricks and party rocking… the Hawaiian punch of events!”
Ten minutes into Go To Hell And Chill and she gives you this look… Nick Catchdubs and Showyousuck bug out and battle demons from the comfort of their living room in this extra-trippy clip for “Drop,” directed by Matt Kliegman (aka STEAMCLAM) and premiered today on The Fader. Check more dank jams on Nick’s Smoke Machine album (featuring collabs with the likes of IAMSU, Troy Ave, Heems and MNDR) and look out for the More Smoke remix EP next week (10/9) with dance-y takes on Smoke Machine cuts from Buku, Slowbody, Udachi and more!

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!
We’ve got a snazzy new B&W colorway of the Fool’s Gold logo snapback up at store.foolsgoldrecs.com, along with restocks of our OG black and gold version (and murdered out black on black). Get em get em get em! The retail shop on 536 Metropolitan in BK has you covered too, open daily noon-6pm.

We brought the whole Fool’s Gold Sound Machine down to Miami for another epic DAY OFF! Rain or shine, it was a litstravaganza for the ages. A-Trak and Mannie Fresh B2B, bringing out 2 Chainz and Juvenile? Flosstradamus preaching turn-up gospel to the South Florida HDYNATION congregation, complete with Travis Porter on some live “Drop Top”? Not to mention Alison Wonderland and Laidback Luke throwing down intense DJ sets, Vic Mensa and Towkio repping SAVEMONEY onstage (and in the crowd), and Denzel Curry, D.R.A.M., Rome Fortune and tons more keeping it sweaty all day long.
Forever we love Atlanta! The 2nd ever ATL DAY OFF was a true celebration of Fool’s Gold fans, family… and hoverboards. Watch our official recap video above to see what happens when the whole city comes out to rock with us!
