Treasure Fingers is a body-moving master who’s kept the party going since the earliest days of FG (and might be the only producer in the game who can boast nu disco anthems and Young Thug mixtape cuts in their catalog). His ATL neighbor BOSCO switches between genres just as deftly, penning future R&B jams and uptempo vogue workouts with style and ease. The duo follow up last Summer’s “Names” with the equally joyous new collab “MYNE” (premiered on Yahoo) an ultra-catchy, bass’d up slice of house music. Treasure Fingers’ drums have never been funkier, while BOSCO’s sweet-n-sour vocal shouts are truly irresistible. Pump up the jam and listen to “MYNE” now.

“Luv U Giv” is the title track from Tommy Trash’s new three song Fool’s Gold EP, a showcase for his ecstatic, 80s-inspired take on the Trashed bounce that fans know and love. You’ve never heard Tommy drop feel good, hi-NRG house vibes like this before!
The release is accompanied by a very special music video trilogy from directors Lorraine Nicholson & Leena Greene, who have painstakingly animated a stop-motion epic featuring the island misadventures of a 12” tall Tommy toy and a horde of ravishing cannibal dolls that’s like nothing you’ve ever seen. The first chapter premiered today on Funny Or Die, check it out now and stay tuned for the rest to find out where our intrepid rave explorer will end up next! Pre-order Luv U Giv now to get the single instantly and the full EP on 11/20.
Bounce thru Bompton with LNDN DRGS in their new video for “Susan.” Premiered on Noisey, the day-in-the-life clip is a perfect snapshot of the buzzing underground duo’s freewheeling take on G-Funk, and first visual off their upcoming free Fool’s Gold album Aktive.
Five cities, thousands of fans, a whole damn supergroup of artists and DJs… DAY OFF 2015 was the biggest Fool’s Gold festival trek yet! From Travi$ Scott lighting LA on fire to Skepta shutting down NYC, from 2 Chainz and Flosstradamus turning up in MIA to A-Trak scratching everywhere, the fam went in for real! Watch the full recap video above, hit fgdayoff.com for more, and stay tuned for next year’s edition (which is sure to be even crazier). Big thanks to our friends at Grand Marnier for helping make it all possible.
Black Atlass continues his hot streak of new music on Fool’s Gold with the slinky creep of “Tonight.” Noisey premiered, the second in a trilogy of new singles from singer / producer Alex Fleming, “Tonight” is a showcase for this one-of-a-kind artist’s expansive palette. While late summer single “Haunted Paradise” was awash in guitar reverb and dreamy, impressionistic vocals, “Tonight” is all business: a stripped-down synth bass, pulsating kick, and Fleming’s unearthly falsetto conjoined somewhere between modern R&B and icy, drum machine-driven new wave. “Baby, tonight I wanna fall in love with you” has never been a more seductive threat. Listen to “Tonight” now!
GrandeMarshall heats up the 11th Street subway station and gives the people a taste of what’s to come, in the 22nd installment of FACT’s Freestyles. Pre-order My Brother’s Keeper and get part of the album instantly, ahead of its 11/20 release!
Sometimes a party is JUST a party. We’ve been throwing legendary FG events in our hometown (and around the globe!) since 2007. Suffice it to say… we’re good at this! But the challenge remains… how does FG keep it fresh 8 years and running? Grab a new-school beat genius, a gang of Atlanta’s wildest talents, and LA’s reigning club queen… ship everybody to a strip club deep in BK… and get ready to get busy! The Fool’s Gold 8 Year Anniversary is the farthest thing from “just” another party. It’s a one-night-only affair for the books. Get your tickets now and we’ll see you Saturday, 11/7 at Club Lust Gentlemen’s Club in Brooklyn. Oh my!

Trizzy personally reached out to other producers who he regularly plays in his sets, including rising vocal house star CID, Nicky Romero-backed duo Volt & State, and Soulection regular Jarreau Vandal. The EP is capped off by “Jamie’s Version,” where Lidell takes the track to a funky new dimension all his own. Peep the track premiers (and accompanying A-Trak interviews) on NPR, Forbes and Vanity Fair, and listen to the whole EP now! Don’t forget to cop tickets to A-Trak’s show at Terminal 5 on 12/12 with Araabmuzik while your’re at it…
