Shash’U “Thru Da Night” Video

Posted on Nov 5th, 2014

Afrofuturist b-boy, remix alchemist, legit funk phenomenon… Montreal hero Shash’U is truly one of a kind. He’s been burning down stages from Boiler Room to underground street dance competition “Juste Debout” with a mix of wild style remixes and audacious originals that sound at once alien and familiar, turning even the poppiest of radio hits from Beyonce and Robin Thicke into breakbeat battle weapons. This approach has won Shash’U a rabid following (not to mention officially commissioned remixes for A-Trak’s “Push” and Chromeo’s “Lost On The Way Home”) and set the stage for his official Fool’s Gold debut, PWRFNK, due out next year.

Before then, however, Shash’U will drop the free Thru Da Night EP, led by the muscular title track (which made it’s debut on the Fool’s Gold Draft Picks BitTorrent bundle) and accompanying music video, featuring a night-crawling preacher man with his own approach to keeping the faith. Check Shash’U live at the Fool’s Gold 7 Year Anniversary Party this Thursday (11/6) at Webster Hall in NYC alongside Master P and more, and at the Miami edition of Fool’s Gold DAY OFF during Art Basel on Saturday, 12/7 featuring A-Trak, Danny Brown, DJ Mustard and the rest of the FG fam.

A-Trak “Push” Pre-order + Lyric Video

Posted on Nov 4th, 2014

You already know A-Trak: the modern day DJ hero, the man behind the cultural powerhouse Fool’s Gold, the wearer of many hats (he owns 46). He brought cheeky disco to the top of the charts with Duck Sauce and has been one of the most sought-after remixers in electronic music. A master at bridging gaps between EDM and hip hop, last year saw him collaborate with Lex Luger in the trap supergroup Low Pros and resurrect Cam’ron with their acclaimed Federal Reserve project.

Now entering a new chapter in his career, A-Trak releases the single “Push” and finally showcases what’s in store for his solo material. Rooted in house music, the song melds the power of festival-tested anthems with soaring, emotional synth pop. Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt lends a delicate falsetto, creating an instant earworm that feels both timeless and timely.

The release comes backed by a full EP of remixes from electro duos du jour The Chainsmokers and Cazzette, rising star DallasK, head-nod specialist GANZ and exceptionally funky new Fool’s Gold signing Shash’U, rocketing across the whole spectrum of modern-day dance music. The EP is out worldwide on 11/25, pre-order Push on iTunes and receive the original instantly! Read More

Black Atlass “Jewels” Video

Posted on Nov 4th, 2014

The moody beauty of Black Atlass’ Young Bloods EP standout “Jewels” gets a truly next-level video treatment from Woodkid, premiered today via The FADER. The clip features Black Atlass and supermodel Anja Rubik interacting in a surreal and completely artificial environment built frame-by-frame by the director. “The reality pictured in this video only exists in the computer I used to create the piece,” says Woodkid. “It’s fascinating and alienating too.” Watch it now and get the Young Bloods EP on iTunes.
