Director Edward John Drake provides the ideal faux TV commercial setting (complete with breakdancers!) to conjure a neon nightmare that pairs perfectly with Tommy and TAISUN’s distorted dance hit. Play it loud and keep an eye out for Tommy’s upcoming Group Chat EP, featuring collaborations with fellow Fool’s Gold label mates created during the “Gold Gone Wild” tour.
As the dizzying music video for A-Trak and Tommy Trash’s “Lose My Mind” becomes a Vine and GIF phenomenon, the DJ duo strike back with four new spins on their loopy collab, courtesy of some of the coolest new talents in dance music.

Mental!

A-Trak and Tommy Trash “Lose My Mind” might be the funkiest track FG’s ever released. But did you know that French production hero Alex Gopher was the song’s secret weapon mix engineer? It’s a musical tidbit the guys are understandably proud of – and to help share it with you, Trizzy hit up the man himself for a little background on his musical roots, favorite synths, mixdown tricks and more. (For even more FG x AG action, peep his remix work on Kid Sister’s “Get Fresh” single from back in ’08.) Read on! Read More
