Premiered on Billboard, Black Atlass’ unique and delicate “Haunted Paradise” now has a beautiful, dreamlike music video courtesy of director Tyler Ross. By pairing the striking voice of Alex Fleming (the young singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist behind Black Atlass) with an equally indelible visual, the “Haunted Paradise” clip creates it’s own hazy kind of magic. This is the first in a trilogy of new singles from Fleming, with more to follow in the coming months on Fool’s Gold. Listen to “Haunted Paradise” and stay tuned for more from Black Atlass!
Premiered today on The FADER and produced by new beat hero Kaytranada, “Dance” is unlike anything we’ve heard from Rome before — a melodic anthem in the grand tradition of dance-my-pain-away jams.
The single is another pleasing curveball from this one-of-a-kind artist, who’s equally at home trapping in a jeep with ILoveMakonnen and Rich The Kid on “No Ma’am” as he is guesting on Four Tet tracks and popping up at Boiler Room.
With his first international tour on deck and the single release (accompanied by a unique app that lets Rome chat direct to fans – and put his blue beard on their own pics!) the future is looking very bright for Rome. Stay tuned for more as he puts his finishing touches on the “Dance” video and his highly-personal upcoming Fool’s Gold LP. Listen to “Dance” and check Rome’s tour dates after the jump.
Bow down to High Klassified, Fool’s Gold’s own bass lord and style king. The Montreal producer raised on 808s and RPGs takes his sound to weird new heights on the Kronostasis EP (out 10/23), picking up where last years auspicious debut Palindroma (“Sounds like anime looks” – Noisey) left off. “Okarina Of Time” and “Saccade Two” bookend the EP with double doses of 64-bit turn up, while “Saccade One” and “Gold” (featuring Chicago rising star Mick Jenkins) bring out a heady, jazzy side to HK that we’ve never heard before. Yet nowhere is High Klassified’s singular swag more evident than “Time In Vain,” and its creepy, cheeky must-see video. Kronostasis is where futuristic slaps meet one-of-a-kind personality: play it loud, follow HK on Snapchat (trust us), and stay tuned for more. Pre-order Kronostasis now!
Nick Catchdubs’ gleeful debut LP Smoke Machine gets taken for a spin on the More Smoke remix EP. Fresh flips from Buku, Slowbody and Udachi join DJ faves from Astronomar, Kraymer and ETC!ETC!, making for another club-ready Fool’s Gold medley to know and love. Warehouse bass, booty techno, breakbeat freakouts… inhale, jabronis! Listen to Smoke Machine and More Smoke now!
Hailing from San Marcos, Texas (but claiming “the internet” as their true birthplace), BROCKHAMPTON are not your average rap group. Don’t even call them one to begin with: “The All American Boy Band” is how Kevin Abstract, JOBA, Ameer Vann, Matt Champion, Dom McLennon, Rodney Tenor, and Merlyn Wood describe this one-of-a-kind crew.
After winning the VFILES LOUD! competition with their offbeat style and boundless energy, BROCKHAMPTON dropped the “Dirt” single on Fool’s Gold, enthusiastically premiered by Ebro (“Bring that back to the top… I like this!”) on his Beats1 radio show. Now, the maniacally fun “Dirt” gets an equally bugged-out video, directed by Tyler Mitchell and executive produced by VFILES. Taking place at a surreal, slo-mo photo shoot, the “Dirt” video captures BROCKHAMPTON’s camaraderie and next-level appeal IRL. Listen to “Dirt” now!
LuckyMe bad bwoy Joseph Marinetti drops an amped up remix of Nina Las Vegas & Swick’s already-hyper “Pool Girls” just in time for NLV’s return to the states for shows this month. More strobes! Listen to Cool Sports now and check Nina’s tour dates after the jump.
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!”
