Brenmar is the club. This bass music chameleon has soundtracked some of the best nights of our lives with sets that expertly travel from Jersey to Chicago and beyond, connecting the dots between hip-hop, R&B and all manner of futuristic house music production. His aptly titled Award EP (out 1/20 on Fool’s Gold) is more than a victory lap for a nightlife champion, but the start of an awesome new chapter, melding songwriting chops atop years of body-moving DJ knowledge. From 808 slow jams to confetti-ready anthems, Award is a four-track collection of earworms featuring voices from the underground (Newark’s Dougie F and UNiiQU3) and radio (Jeremih collaborator Sayyi) alike.
Listen to the title track (premiered today by Paper alongside a Brenmar Q&A) for a taste of the EP, which you can also pre-order now on iTunes. Hear Brenmar live in his element on the Award tour kicking off 1/21 in Chicago and blasting around the globe through February, full dates after the jump.

One of our biggest Fool’s Gold Clubhouse success stories is the mysterious Parisian known as Tchami, who burst out of the shadows with debut track “Promesses” feat. Kaleem Taylor, the rare tune that built momentum month after month after month and ultimately took over the entire dance scene with “future house” vibes that would spawn a legion of imitators. The inventor is still the best, however! Tchami and “Promesses” are back this week, re-released by Ministry Of Sound in conjunction with FG and backed by new remixes from Preditah, Calyx & Teebee, and Pep & Rash. Grab it now on iTunes!
