To celebrate today’s milestone, Greg and his production company Walter Pictures just posted Dante’s audition tape, which you can peep after the jump. Get “Grown Up” now on iTunes. Read More

It’s the latest cut from his Ice Cold Perm to get a visual, and a great teaser to announce 100s’ upcoming Fool’s Gold EP. Get wavy!

Vancouver upstart Sleepy Tom makes his Fool’s Gold debut today with The Currency, four tracks of high-powered electro house out today on Beatport!
Yung Sleepy has quickly proved himself a master of all things massive. His hometown parties and DJ sets alongside some of electronic music’s biggest names have earned a rep as Canada’s funnest. His internet incinerating bootlegs and official remixes (including an especially chunky take on Diplo’s “Set It Off”) can be heard everywhere from BBC radio to festival stages around the globe. And now with his first EP, Sleepy Tom takes his taste for overdriven laser riffs, donk’d out kick drums, and all manner of speaker-zapping dance music to an even higher level of OOMPH.
Head over to Thee Mike B’s Soundcloud and download his “Nothing But Time” mix, featuring a bunch of new houseables – including his Blondie edit with Oliver and “Yesterday,” his collab with Sammy Bananas as Fifteenth (out now on iTunes, Beatport and all fine digital music services). Groovy!
