Montreal’s current beat renaissance is a melting pot of hybrid sounds and aesthetics as diverse as the city itself. Yet for all of the exciting electronic producers this new scene has spawned, no one is as unique a personality as High Klassifed. Armed with a Louis bag full of 808s, a half-full bottle of Hennessy, and melodies as stratospheric as his high-top fade, HK makes his Fool’s Gold debut with the striking Palindroma EP, out today on exclusive early Beatport release. The four hypnotic tracks showcase High Klassified’s signature stew of post-trap drum programming and luxurious, dreamlike synth lines, demanding repeat listens of the entire release. Come aboard and float away with Canada’s finest.
Our last release of 2013 is a doozy: the title track from Sinden’s Ring Around The Moon EP gets remixed by CZ, Mixhell and High Klassified, taking the Mykki Blanco-featuring jam in cosmic new directions. Get it now on iTunes, Beatport and everywhere else fine digital music is sold.
If that’s not enough Sinden-related new new for ya, we’ve also got a bonus remix from Matrixxman for free download: grab his “Mayhem Mixx” of Ring Around The Moon cut “Almost Gone” below!
We celebrated six years of Fool’s Gold-ing with another legendary anniversary celebration last month, bringing a gang of friends and fam deep into Brooklyn to rock at SRB.

Huge! Watch the recap video above and check out some photo galleries from Le Panda, Mel D Cole, Frank151 and Village Voice (some of our favorites after the jump). And while you’re at it, relive the night with a limited-edition 6 Year Anniversary tee, featuring Nick Gazin’s hysterical flyer art and the whole lineup on the back. Read More
