Fans have been salivating for Savage Skulls’ alpine megajam “Dachstein” ever since heavy hitters like A-Trak and Tiesto started dropping it in their festival sets. Mashing a feel good oompahh melody into an enormous kick drum drop, “Dachstein” is perhaps the heaviest and happiest DJ weapon you’ll hear all year. The hills are alive! Get it now on iTunes, Beatport, and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
We hit Miami in a week, getting down with some of the funnest parties Ultra week has to offer, including our own annual (and dare we say legendary!) showcase at Grand Central.

Some people prefer the fish, others the house mafia, but for our money THE best Swedish export is none other than Carli, a true master of club music and all-around groovy dude. His second FG smash The Weekender is out now, and to celebrate he put together this megamix of exclusive edits and current DJ favorites for the Foolcast.
Swedish superproducer, ravemeister extraordinaire, and owner of one of the finest haircuts in all of dance music, Carli is back with his second Fool’s Gold smasher, “The Weekender.” Five minutes and six seconds of pure big room ecstasy from the Savage Skull himself, backed by the hands-in-the-air acid workout “Rhythm Doctor.” Both cuts have already been prescribed to festivals worldwide, and now approved for home use by the Fool’s Gold Medical Association. Get it now from Beatport!
FG took over MIA once again, putting our own special shine on Miami Music Week with multiple events. A sweaty Grand Central rave? Yes indeed. Infiltrating the Ultra festival? You bet. A rooftop rap party? SOUND DI ALARM!!! See what went down with all our friends and party people in this recap video.
Swedish rave genius Carli has been destroying clubs for years: first as the curly half of remix superstars (and Robyn collaborators) Savage Skulls, then as one of the mad scientists behind Crookers’ collabapalooza Dr Gonzo, and lately with his own wonderfully out-of-control solo productions.
His brand new “Look Up” is the latest evolution for Carli’s sound, welding throwback diva vocals and piano stabs onto hypermodern, stadium-worthy laser beam beats – a “secret weapon” that has had fans salivating ever since A-Trak and other big dog DJs began spinning the demo in their festival sets around the globe. B-side “Mind Control” keeps the time machine set on stun, with chopped up breakbeats and voodoo ray vibes mashing up against Carli’s signature big-room kicks and ecstatic synth riffs. These two tracks make the “Look Up” single on Fool’s Gold a DJ must-have, and a guaranteed party-starter in any decade. Get it now on Beatport!
