For all of you in Chicago this weekend in search of #PLUR at Spring Awakening, come to the Fool’s Gold vs. OWSLA stage Friday 6/13 to catch A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs, Oliver and gLAdiator (and more fam like Tchami throughout the weekend).

Only some artists dare to fly high but some really do just like FG’s very own High Klassified. HK was recently taken on a flight in an open air 2-man glider plane in Quebec. Watch the video above to witness the madness that takes place in the air and buy High Klassified’s Palindroma EP.
Low Pros’ debut EP1 is out today on iTunes featuring new amped-up remixes from gLAdiator and TWRK (as well as exclusive unreleased instrumentals) for maximum low end enjoyment. The supergroup of A-Trak and Lex Luger linked in Atlanta for non-stop recording sessions with fellow producers Metro Boomin (Future, YG), Brillz and FG’s very own High Klassified, then enlisted everyone from new-school superstar Young Thug to dirty south legend Juvenile to add their magic to the mix. The results take the trap sound Lex literally invented into outer space, raising the bar for hip-hop and electronic productions alike. Grab the EP on iTunes now (and represent in your very own Low Pros tees from store.foolsgoldrecs.com).
Flosstradamus still do not know what to turn down for!

Stream and buy “TTU” now, and be sure to rep with this classic Flosstradamus tee.
Anna Lunoe delivers a heavy punch with her latest track “Bass Drum Dealer,” a heaping dose of bass and raging rave synths. Her smooth vocals soften the blow but this is some full-on drum madness!

San Francisco producer Charlie Yin has made quite a name for himself turning bedroom beats into dance floor staples as Giraffage. His beloved R&B remixes and vibe-laden solo tracks have won early praise from Pitchfork, The Fader, XLR8R and other tastemakers, all while he seals the deal live with lush, bass-driven performances at Low End Theory, Boiler Room and gigs around the globe.
Giraffage is poised for even bigger things with an expansive new EP out later this year on Fool’s Gold, and he’ll be showcasing these brand-new tracks and more on Porter Robinson’s “Worlds” tour of North America, kicking off August 28th in Vancouver and stretching through October 18th in Miami (dates after the jump). For a taste of what’s in store, check out Giraffage’s ecstatic rework of R. Kelly’s classic summer jam “Ignition (Remix),” as premiered on This Song Is Sick.
