As the dizzying music video for A-Trak and Tommy Trash’s “Lose My Mind” becomes a Vine and GIF phenomenon, the DJ duo strike back with four new spins on their loopy collab, courtesy of some of the coolest new talents in dance music. OWSLA queen Mija goes sampladelic, D.O.D blasts off with his “future jack” energy and Meaux Green and SAM F turn up and trap out, while French funky vibe-master Jean Tonique straps on his roller skates and adds original talkbox verses. Mental!

A-Trak and Tommy Trash face off (literally) in the animated new “Lose My Mind” video.

South Florida got a heavy dose of DAY OFF when we brought Joey Bada$$, A-Trak & Friends (including NORE, Mystikal and Orlando’s own Kaiydo) Hudson Mohawke and the fam to Revolution Live in Ft Lauderdale. Lil Yachty had to dip for BET Awards but the boss MadeinTYO popped up in his place to shut it down alongside Playboi Carti, Kirk Knight, Ape Drums, River Tiber, and FG’s own Nick Catchdubs, BOSCO & Speakerfoxxx and Damaged Goods. Watch the recap video, tag yourself in the FB gallery, and check out some of our fav shots after the jump. Read More
A-Trak and Tommy Trash’s “Lose My Mind” gets an appropriately insane remix from UK club champion D.O.D, replacing the original tune’s disco vibes with blasts of his signature “future jack” energy. Keep the party going with D.O.D’s Fool’s Gold CLUBHOUSE single “BOH,” and look out for equally mental “Lose My Mind” remixes by Mija and more on FG.
A-Trak’s “Parallel Lines” single with Phantogram is the gift that keeps on giving, inspiring a bumper crop of remixes that all manage to find new charms in the song’s indelible hooks. Electronic duo STFU are the latest to take a swing, slowing “Parallel Lines” down to tropical slowdance levels before adding a clever drop that sends it over the top. Download the remix for free here.

A-Trak and Tommy Trash’s funk phenomenon “Lose My Mind” gets a high-powered remix courtesy of OWSLA-approved upstart Mija. She stays true to the original track’s feel-good strut (and cowbell!) while adding her own supercharged thump and awesome vocal chops, making this mix an absolute must-have for dance freaks and party people worldwide.
A-Trak and Tommy Trash “Lose My Mind” might be the funkiest track FG’s ever released. But did you know that French production hero Alex Gopher was the song’s secret weapon mix engineer? It’s a musical tidbit the guys are understandably proud of – and to help share it with you, Trizzy hit up the man himself for a little background on his musical roots, favorite synths, mixdown tricks and more. (For even more FG x AG action, peep his remix work on Kid Sister’s “Get Fresh” single from back in ’08.) Read on! Read More
