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.
Download DRAFT PICKS music and more at foolsgoldrecs.com/draftpicks, and see these artists live at all the Fool’s Gold DAY OFF events this year in New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Miami. Check fgdayoff.com for full lineups and ticket info. Read More
