Whether reshaping LA’s dance scene for a new generation with his Athletixx crew, or delving into uncharted beat territory with solo tracks and remixes, California DJ/producer Falcons is a force to be reckoned with. Terra, his debut Fool’s Gold EP, showcases four cuts of imaginative, bass-driven songwriting that highlight Falcons’ confidence as a producer and collaborator, all while detonating the party like nothing else. After drippy summer jam “Aquafina” sets a tone with rap upstarts GoldLink and Chaz French, Terra bounces from rolling ragga hybrid “Flame,” guest-starring UK heroine Stush to the moody title track (built on Falcons’ own chopped and screwed vocals), before closing out strong with post-hyphy bomb “Boss Mackin” featuring San Francisco’s A-1. Terra is club music as its most elemental. Dig in…

ManMan Savage is young Atlanta’s next star, mashing dread-swinging charisma and mosh pit energy with real life grit. “Takin Shots” is his Fool’s Gold debut, following a series of self-released ATL favorites and appearances as a mainstay on the scene – that’s him starring in Future’s “Trap N****s” video and hitting the stage with ILoveMakonnen on his “Loudest Of The Loud” tour. “Takin Shots” is a clear leap forward for ManMan, whose screaming delivery (over a banging, post-apocalyptic beat from Chris Fresh of 808 Mafia) simply cannot be ignored. Download it on iTunes or stream it on Spotify!
