When it comes to the classy side of dance music, UK producers Felon are guilty as charged. After making waves with debut hit “Isla,” the trio shows their diversity on new EP, The Source, expertly stacking timeless soul vocals, jacking baselines and modern house bump as only true professionals can. Summery single “Bones” features the yearning melodies of Andre Espeut over tropical riffs and chunky horns, while the cascading drums of “Tusks” and rubbery, ultra-funky baseline of “Jerk” show off Felon’s deft touch with late-night vibes. Get chic to this.
Felon is the London house trio of Archie, George and James. After their smash single “Isla” took over the planet, Fool’s Gold enlisted these producers to lend their soulful, feel good touch to Rome Fortune’s “Dance” (featured on the recent Night Shift compilation). Immediately afterwards, we were pleasantly surprised to find “Bones” in our inboxes, melding Felon’s signature, Ibiza-ready smoothness with muscular horns and a heavy-duty bass riff. It’s not your everyday jam, and definitely not what you might expect from Fool’s Gold… which kinda makes it the perfect tune for us to release! Wait for the next available sunset and turn this one waaay up. Listen to “Bones” now.

For the past several years, Tony Senghore has been killing it with his remixes and original productions that connect the boom of big room house and techno with the anything goes, WTF freakouts of underground electronic music. He first blessed FG with his signature touch on a remix of Lil B’s Young L collab “Freeze” (as featured on the Fool’s Gold x Serato “4 Deep” vinyl) and now comes through with an exclusive DJ mix of his recent productions and club favorites.
This week you can grab new music from CALiGULA (aka FG friend / supa DJ Vin Sol and production duo Skin & Bones), a banging disco number called “Countdown” and acid b-side “Main Line,” exclusively on iTunes. Render unto them!
Hello and welcome to the second debut edition of Food Gold. Before I get going I wanted to give props to the OG FG columnist Mr Sammy Bananas, and the label fam for passing the mantle on to me. Hopefully I can continue the excellent work that the homies have started.
We’re going to improv on these first few posts but expect to get a grip of recipes, videos, travelogues and reviews each and every Tuesday from now until food doesn’t taste good any more. For this first post, I decided to put my best food forward and highlight a few of my favorite tastes from a recent trip to Australia. Dig in! (more…)
