Vancouver upstart Sleepy Tom has quickly proved himself a young master of all things massive. His hometown parties and DJ sets alongside some of electronic music’s biggest names have earned a rep as Canada’s funnest. His internet incinerating bootlegs and official remixes (including an especially chunky take on Diplo’s “Set It Off”) can be heard everywhere from BBC radio to festival stages around the globe. And now with his first original release, The Currency (hitting Beatport on 5/28), Sleepy Tom takes his taste for overdriven laser riffs, donk’d out kick drums, and all manner of speaker-zapping dance music to an even higher level of OOMPH.
Check out some snippets below: from the supercharged house of “Let It Go” to the title track’s rollercoaster-worthy buildups, The Currency is one debut that’s impossible to sleep on. Don’t let the kid’s name fool you!
Drvg Cvltvre has been living up to his name with freaky edits (including one for our own Jokers Of The Scene), remixes and original tracks. He put together a DJ mix for our FOOLCAST series, and it seriously bumps. If you’re asking about a track list, Mr Cvltvre explains this was “recorded live, so I’ll have to shazam it :-)”
Subscribe to the Foolcast via iTunes or your favorite RSS reader at the main Foolcast page, where you can also download the mix directly (right click and save-as). Dive in and trip out…
Go grab this brand new mix from Treasure Fingers, recorded for Dim Mak’s Evolution radio show. It features a bunch of chopped-n-funked new jams including TF’s own “Cloud Life,” which you can download as a standalone freebie here.
Brooklyn’s own 2Beeps cranks up the laser beams and takes us back to the future with his Miami Bass inspired banger, “Showtime,” the latest free download in our Clubhouse series. Grab tracks weekly at foolsgoldrecs.com/clubhouse.
“Showtime” is big speaker music made to play LOUD… exactly what the Clubhouse was made for! (Be sure to check out Solidisco, Lenkemz and Vails’ contributions to the series too…)
Fifteenth is the peerlessly groovy production duo comprised of Brooklyn’s Sammy Bananas and LA’s Thee Mike B. These bicoastal DJ bros have combined forces on Fool’s Gold once again with “Yesterday,” a dreamy slice of sunset-ready house music, out today on iTunes, Beatport and all other fine digital services (just in time for Sammy and Mike’s ACTUAL shared birthday tomorrow. How do you think they got the name?!?)
“Yesterday” is the rare jam that’s perfect for pool parties and heartfelt homemade mixtapes alike, backed by some amazing remixes from international homies His Majesty Andre, Funkin Matt, and Jerome LOL. Check out the snippets, crank it up, and make some memories of your own.
