Every new track from Funkin Matt is a graduate class in body moving. Soaring synthezizer riffs? He’s nailed ‘em. Earthquake level drums? Ditto. Undeniably catchy robot hooks? We’re talking about a robo freakin master, people! FM is back with another smash, following up his Fool’s Gold debut “I Wish” with the even more anthemic “We Are Electric” (out today on Beatport!) a hands-in-the-air, buzz saw banger from a true sound scientist. Hit the books and bang your head to this…
The annual Fool’s Gold Austin extravaganza keeps getting bigger and better! Check out what went down at our official SXSW showcase, our after-hours bash with A$AP Yams at the Illmore, the mega-label Super Party team-up with Mad Decent and Check Yo Ponytail, and more (including Danny Brown proudly accepting an mtvU Video Of The Year Woodie!) in this official recap video.
FG took over MIA once again, putting our own special shine on Miami Music Week with multiple events. A sweaty Grand Central rave? Yes indeed. Infiltrating the Ultra festival? You bet. A rooftop rap party? SOUND DI ALARM!!! See what went down with all our friends and party people in this recap video.
When A-Trak and Tommy Trash decide to make a sandwich, they go all out.

After the jump, watch a behind the scenes clip showing how director Ryan Staake of Pomp&Clout and his team put it all together. Read More
After 18 episodes, the Fool’s Gold Radio show has become a family affair, with A-Trak passing mixing duties on to FG partner Nick Catchdubs.

Our latest free Clubhouse cut comes from Midlands maniac Lenkemz, who has been making a name for himself with underground bubblers powered by industrial grade 808s and a healthy disregard for subtlety. “Flo” is his most insane track yet, damn near six minutes of spazz drums and squeaky lazer chops. Get down!
Keep up at foolsgoldrecs.com/clubhouse, where you can also check pics and video from our inaugural season and catch up on previous Clubhouse compilations.
