The DAY OFF MIA lineup is here and it’s innnnnnnsane! Our 2016 throwdown on Saturday, 9/17 is an all-ages event for the history books. Fool’s Gold’s BK neighbor and Pro Era general Joey Bada$$ headlines alongside A-Trak & Friends (will he top last year’s surprises of 2Chainz and Juvenile?) and Hudson Mohawke, fresh off supercharging Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo and Boys Noize’s latest LP. Young ATL heroes Playboi Carti and Lil Yachty set fire to the rap rulebook, FG sparkplugs Ape Drums and BOSCO & Speakerfoxxx provide tropical vibes, and turntable vets Nick Catchdubs and Damaged Goods keep the party going all day long.
A-Trak’s feel good, Phantogram-featuring summer jam “Parallel Lines” is already a must-have on any party playlist. But why stop there? The Fool’s Gold founder has enlisted six of dance music’s wildest talents for a “Parallel Lines” remix package programmed like a festival stage in its own right. MSTRKRFT’s triumphant electro revival, Bart B More’s Dutch house, Chris Lorenzo’s new-school bump, Holl & Rush’s big-room muscle, Doobious’ synthy club and BLU J’s futuristic bass… each new spin on “Parallel Lines” deserves to be played as loudly as possible.
After conquering the world several times over as one half of electronic titans Flosstradamus, Josh Young traded the stage for the studio, buckling down for a beat-a-day challenge that would quickly morph into Me2, a new solo project informed by his Chicago DJ roots and all-around pop culture appetite. If festival dance music has gotten stale, Me2 is the antidote: wildly fun, shuffle-mode samples meet the Floss muscle fans know and love. His free Fool’s Gold debut, Steal This Mixtape, is a diesel-powered introduction to one of our favorite producers stepping out on his own. Download it now and add very rare Me2 caps to your collection!
Upstart San Francisco producers BLU J turn the dream factor all the way up on A-Trak’s “Parallel Lines,” sending his Phantogram collab straight to future house heaven. Get in your feelings, and get ready for even more “Parallel Lines” remixes on Fool’s Gold this summer.
Straight outta Rotterdam, Holl & Rush flip A‐Trak’s Phantogram collab “Parallel Lines” from a summer breeze to a big‐room house hurricane. Muscular electro basslines, surging chords, and undeniable THUMP make this remix a must hear… check it out along with the other “Parallel Lines” mixes on Fool’s Gold.
Dutch champion Bart B More returns to Fool’s Gold with an appropriately bumping take on A-Trak’s “Parallel Lines” feat. Phantogram. Lasers? Check! Burn the house down with this and all the other “Parallel Lines” remixes dropping on FG.
All the world’s a party for Atlanta BFFs BOSCO & Speakerfoxxx in their new video for “Shooter.” Part ’90s house, part hip hop, and all girl power, the duo manage to turn up everything from tennis whites to donuts. Press play, paint the town pink, and hear more on their Girls In The Yard mixtape, out now on Fool’s Gold.
Rome Fortune’s “Dance” gets taken to the roller rink courtesy of LA-via-Minneapolis funkster Gigamesh. Vintage synths and “Planet Rock” worthy 808s make this reanimated “Dance” a summertime essential. Hear the Kaytranada-produced original on Rome’s debut LP Jerome Raheem Fortune, and check additional flips from Brenmar, Fred Falke, Felon and more on the “Dance Remixes” EP, both out now on Fool’s Gold.
Ape Drums lives up to his namesake with the gorilla-in-the-trunk bump of new Fool’s Gold single LFUTP. The bad bwoy DJ and in-demand collaborator (A-Trak, Diplo) returns to his Houston hometown for this raucous jam featuring Texas MC Rizzoo Rizzoo and reigning rap upstart Lil Uzi Vert. Party tested at Ape Drums shows around the globe, “LFUTP” deserves nothing less than to be played at maximum volume while driving through a residential neighborhood. Listen here.
