After making waves with their debut Fool’s Gold EP last spring, Low Pros, the production supergroup led by DJ hero A-Trak (currently riding high with Billboard Top 10 Dance/Electronic smash “Out The Speakers,” featured in Mountain Dew’s Superbowl commercial) and trap architect Lex Luger returns with the new single “Who Wanna Play.” ATL upstart Que (“OG Bobby Johnson”) barks anthemic bars over a thumping, BPM flipping beat that A-Trak and Lex cooked up with Atlanta’s reigning beatsmiths Metro Boomin and Sonny Digital (Young Thug, Makonnen, Travi$ Scott) and bass maven Brillz, setting the tempo for 2015 and beyond. The accompanying music video from Kanye West collaborator Nate Brown and Gustavo “Kidmograph” Torres is just as next level, re-imagining sci-fi classics like Blade Runner, Akira, and Mad Max for the WorldStar generation.
Absolut and Mixcloud recently joined forces for their “Absolut Mixes” series of new music, and tapped our own Catchdini to provide the debut set. Stream it below and peep the tracklist (chock full of rap remixes, uptempo clubbers and lotsa new FG cuts) after the jump.
Fool’s Gold fam Flosstradamus and Troyboi teamed up for “Soundclash,” an uber-banger collab track that quickly became a fan favorite via live recordings and set rips. You can now get the official version on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine music is sold. After that, catch up on Flossy FG classics like “Rollup” and Crowd CTRL, and top it off with Troyboi’s take on Danny Brown’s “Smokin & Drinkin” for maximum Monday morning turnup.
Trizzy hit Chicago to sit down with RSVP Gallery for their new Q&A series. To celebrate, the RSVP crew created a mini Fool’s Gold collab capsule featuring a FG x RSVP tee in black and gold colorways and (in proper A-Trak fashion) a set of turntable slipmats.

Raised in New York City and now living and working in Los Angeles, 19 year old phenom Leaf personifies the modern young multi-hyphenate: writing and producing her own music, directing and editing her own videos, and even designing her own MBM clothing line. Yet what sets Leaf apart from her DIY counterparts is a raw, undeniable personal charisma and seductive artistic vision, both of which are captured in peak form on the new Magnet Bitch EP, available today on iTunes and for free download at foolsgoldrecs.com/leaf.
Vicious raps and ethereal, angelic vocals shove back and forth over goth-ed out sub bass throughout Magnet Bitch (named after Leaf’s self-proclaimed “magnet bitch movement” of female solidarity) making for a captivatingly quick, must-rewind listen. From the swaggering “Drama” to the acoustic coda of “Slick” and the spacey kiss-off anthem “Calling Me Like,” Magnet Bitch captures the many moods of Leaf in hi-def, and sets the stage for her upcoming Fool’s Gold full-length.
Eddie Huang is a lot of things: chef, author, host, raconteur, and (of course!) FG fam.

Listen to the Skywlkr-produced track in full now, and tune in to FOTB every Tuesday at 8pm.
