Danny Brown is one of the most sought-after (and selective) guest MCs in the game for good reason: get the Bruiser boss on your track and it goes from merely good to all-caps exclamation point STYLE! in the course of a few bars.

Be sure to grab Danny’s own new EP for Smokin & Drinkin, out now with a gang of crazy remixes (pic disc vinyl on the way too!) and hit fgdayoff.com to see Danny rock with us at the Fool’s Gold Day Off shows starting 9/1 in New York. Don’t sleep on tix!

While the music industry lounges through another off-season of vacation days and long weekends, Fool’s Gold has spent their summer adding a brand-new roster of DJ / producer superstars to the team. DRAFT PICKS announces this formidable squad to the world in the form of a free, downloadable BitTorrent Bundle of mp3s and digital collector cards for each artist (complete with highlight stats and stick of gum!).
From fresh finds and SoundCloud phenoms to established talents making big-league creative leaps, DRAFT PICKS features the most exciting and diverse lineup of DJs and producers currently working, all united together under the FG umbrella. Where else would Salva’s hyper club hybrids make sense against Shash’U’s “power funk”? TroyBoi’s widescreen trap epics vs Giraffage’s Tumblr-ready dreamscapes? Brenmar’s bass-fueled r&b hand in hand with High Klassified’s next level head nodders? Hoodboi’s frenetic remixes next to gLAdiator’s festival anthems? DRAFT PICKS is a 360 dunk of next-level dance music stopping all questions in their tracks.
