Low Pros’ debut EP1 is out today on iTunes featuring new amped-up remixes from gLAdiator and TWRK (as well as exclusive unreleased instrumentals) for maximum low end enjoyment. The supergroup of A-Trak and Lex Luger linked in Atlanta for non-stop recording sessions with fellow producers Metro Boomin (Future, YG), Brillz and FG’s very own High Klassified, then enlisted everyone from new-school superstar Young Thug to dirty south legend Juvenile to add their magic to the mix. The results take the trap sound Lex literally invented into outer space, raising the bar for hip-hop and electronic productions alike. Grab the EP on iTunes now (and represent in your very own Low Pros tees from store.foolsgoldrecs.com).
Last night A-Trak joined The Roots on Jimmy Fallon to perform their latest single “Never.” For those of you who missed it live, watch it now and experience Trizzy and the world famous Roots crew do their thing. For more scratchin’ action, catch A-Trak on the Gold Gone Wild tour, dates and tickets here.
When DJ superhero A-Trak joins forces with vanguard production duo Milo & Otis, lock up your stereo equipment… NO BASS IS SAFE. Their irresistibly anthemic collaboration “Out The Speakers” is the first official team-up from these two festival forces (following M&O’s beloved remix with Skrillex and Kill The Noise of Trizzy’s Duck Sauce single “NRG”). They slow down the BPMs to make a speaker-bursting, apartment-evicting monster constructed from screwed rap vocals from ATL’s Rich Kidz, twerked out drums, and what is perhaps mankind’s first recorded “burp drop.” If that’s not enough, festival freaks Caked Up provide a rave-ready uptempo remix, while LA duo Vindata sneak in R&B finger snaps and drum programming worthy of the So So Def Bass All-Stars. Tweeters beware!
A-Trak chats wit Vlad TV about his upcoming Federal Reserve EP with Cam’ron, how the collaboration came about, and how grilled meats can make any studio session better. For a taste of Federal Reserve watch the Cam’ron & A-Trak “Dipsh*ts” music video now and stay tuned for more.
A-Trak and Cam’ron are back! Summer anthem “Dipsh*ts” features uncut Cam’ron slick talk over triumphant instrumental blasts from A-Trak, Oliver and Just Blaze, a Dipset-repping Juelz Santana on the hook, and “Champagne Dame” (aka Federal Reserve executive producer Damon Dash) providing a legendary, song closing rant, complete with “Foooooooool’s Gold” shout!
This filthy cut gets the epic video it deserves thanks to director Ricky Saiz, who follows up his work for Beyonce and Supreme with another iconic clip, capturing the rugged glory and inimitable fashion sense of Harlem and the Diplomats with true uptown-meets-downtown flair. From kids in airbrushed A-Trak tees to Cam’s floor-length mink, it’s the most style you’ll see in a video all year.

The first annual Good Times fest went down in Miami a few weeks back, a multi-label friendstravaganza featuring crews from Owsla, Bromance, Boys Noize, Slow Roast, MTA, Jeffrees, Smog, and of course FOOOOOOL’S GOOOOOLD. Watch the official recap video for A-Trak and Craze B2B scratch action, not to mention Anna Lunoe, Tchami, Congorock, Skrillex, Brodinski, Chance The Rapper, and more bringing the vibes to tons of South Florida’s finest party people. (For more recappage, check what went down at our own party in MIA that weekend.)
Duck Sauce continue their streak of genuinely next level music videos with a clip for new single “NRG,” which just premiered on Buzzfeed. Director Dugan O’Neal and comedian Jon C. Daly (Kroll Show) take late-night infomercials to truly psychotic heights, with A-Trak and Armand Van Helden getting in on the increasingly insane action themselves. It’s the perfect visual accompaniment to Duck Sauce’s new album Quack, stuffed full of even more earworm hooks, feel-good beats, and unfiltered cosmic ridiculousness. Get it now on iTunes along with the “NRG” remixes from Skrillex, Kill The Noise, Milo & Otis and Hudson Mohawke. (There’s also a DJ friendly version of Quack on Beatport if that’s your thing.)
Our annual Miami throwdown at Grand Central during Ultra Weekend was another smasher!

There’s also photo galleries from Hey Mr. Riot, the Grand Central Facebook, and more, peep some of our favorite selects after the jump. Read More
