Whether it’s the perfect vibe to kick off your night or the anthem that brings it to an ecstatic, emotional close, Lxury’s Fool’s Gold debut is an electronic must-have.

His new Club Demons EP (out 8/16) collects Madeaux’ most baroque bangers to date; from the title track featuring Dances With White Girls to the goth electronics of I Want You and relentless Brux collaboration Love, Club Demons is the soundtrack to one Dionysian night out.

NYC DJ / producer and Fool’s Gold co-founder Nick Catchdubs has spent a career sharing music, supporting artists and connecting the dots between scenes and generations. The encyclopedic good vibes that became his signature (“the best party DJ in the game” – Stereogum) first came to life as original music on 2015’s Smoke Machine LP, featuring an anything-goes guest list and highlights that continue to bubble everywhere from Broad City to Apple Watch commercials. However, Nick’s new album UFO chooses to blaze a more cosmic path. The attitude is still there, with big glowstick energy filtered through subway sounds and razor-edited, breakdance-ready chops; when vocals do pop up, courtesy of New York underground favorites like Nasty Nigel and Mr Muthafuckin eXquire, their subterranean bars feel right at home. But there’s also a surprising new gear of zoned out instrumentals and heady, re-animated synth loops added to the mix. Put it all together, and UFO is an enjoyably glitchy collection of what we can only call Nick Type Beats: tune in, turn up, and blast off. Listen Now!

Herzeloyde continues to evolve his uncategorizable approach to bass on the new Paroxysm EP, flipping late ‘90s / early ‘00s production techniques with his own modern day styles. From the funky, filtered chops on 552 to the heavy duty house experimentations of Dream Type (with plenty of Herzeloyde’s own computer-warped vocals woven in for good measure), the Melbourne based producer keeps listeners guessing and bouncing in equal measure.
