Oliver are dance music’s funkiest space explorers. Their muscular, gleaming tunes swap EDM neon for airbrushed chrome, re-imagining the highways of Los Angeles as one long cosmic on-ramp. They follow up their Fool’s Gold debut Mechanical with the supremely confident Light Years Away (out 9/9), a two-track EP showcasing the duo at their absolute best. The title track struts with a low-slung boogie, while “Fast Forward” (premiered today on Stereogum) takes off on a technicolor rocket of pulsing buildups and Daft-worthy solos. Light Years Away is one small step for man, one giant leap for the groove… pre-order it on iTunes now, and be sure to join the duo live at Exchange LA for their EP release party on 9/12.

100s is taking West Coast rap back to the future. His upcoming Fool’s Gold EP, IVRY, is a glimpse into a melodic new chapter for the Berkeley MC. Daft Punk gone G-Funk? Prince’s lowrider playlist? IVRY takes classic mack vibes to chic new heights, and “Ten Freaky Hoes” (just premiered by The Fader) is a perfect teaser of what 100s’ new release has in store. Over a smoothed out track from Vaughn Oliver of FG disco duo Oliver (with talkbox assist from Numbers’ resident funkster Redinho), 100s spits X-rated bedtime stories worthy of classic Too $hort, but with an attitude, approach, and peerless sense of style all his own.

A-Trak and Oliver have long been two of dance music’s absolute coolest. On their latest collab “Zamboni” (out next Tuesday, 12/10) these Fool’s Gold family members drop the tempature (and the bass) even further, crafting an iced-out funkstravaganza of synth squiggles and cut up ’80s drumrolls laid atop one insistent, brain-rattling acid riff. Get in the rink with these party boys and lose control!
