Lifelong friends and ATL trailblazers BOSCO and Speakerfoxxx have finally joined forces in the studio for Girls In The Yard, a new project presented by Fool’s Gold. With Speakerfoxxx providing a keen DJ’s ear for curation and production, BOSCO lets loose on the mic like never before, taking her love of classic 90s house, hip-hop, R&B and more to a futuristic new level. Premiered by Complex, the raucous, confident “Beemer” (produced by Mr. 2-17) opens the tape and sets the stage, a hybrid jam that will shake your hips, blow your whistle, and throw your hands in the air… Girls In The Yard is the shuffle mode dance party of the year. Pre-order GITY now to get “Beemer” instantly!
Fool’s Gold redlines into spring with Night Shift, a 17 track compilation, available from all digital retailers on April 1st of new dance music from the label’s latest signings and loudest family members. Since launching in 2007, the beloved Brooklyn indie founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs has pushed hybrid sounds to the forefront of the electronic scene. But Night Shift is the sound of a brand-new model year racing off the FG lot, shinier and heavier than ever.
A-Trak and Ookay’s bass anthem “Only One” races alongside Athletixx’s experimental clubber “PNTHR,” while massive remixes of electro royals Tommy Trash and Alvin Risk ride shotgun with tunes from upstarts KRNE, GEOTHEORY and Madeaux. Rap vocals from Atlanta, house beats from London, synth riffs from planets unknown… Night Shift is an enjoyably motley mix of styles, tempos and attitudes, bound together by a definitive Fool’s Gold aesthetic. Burning rubber never felt so good! Premiered on Pitchfork, listen to “Only One” below and pre-order Night Shift. Tracklist below.
