“The Sax Track” is the platonic ideal of an international summer jam, courtesy of breakout German house producer Ninetoes, the man behind Ibiza anthem “Finder,” remixes for A-Trak, Basement Jaxx and Jesse Rose, and countless other DJ cuts. Propulsive enough for the pool party yet chill enough for the cabana, “The Sax Track” is a dancefloor earworm deserving of an elaborate mixed drink, ideally served in a coconut. Listen Now!
Tsuruda is an icon in the ever-evolving bass and beats scenes. Prolific and fearless, this classically trained, LA-based producer and DJ mashes experimental hip hop with avant garde electronics on releases for Daddy Kev’s Alpha Pup, Noisia’s Division and Mat Zo’s Mad Zoo imprints, while collaborating and touring with the likes of Mr Carmack and Amon Tobin. But more than any cosign, it’s Tsuruda’s bleeding edge sound design and neck-breaking funkiness that has inspired a legion of underground fans; it’s also earned him bragging rights as winner of the 2021 Goldie Awards, the beat competition (judged by A-Trak, Craze and Baauer) where these four Fool’s Gold tracks were born. Champion sound! Listen Now!

Soul Clap have spent two decades honing a uniquely soulful spin on underground house and disco sounds. How does a duo from Boston become a leading name in the global dance music scene? By emphasizing community, from their Crew Love artist collaborations (“music that challenges the mind, moves the heart, and sways the hips,” says Resident Advisor) to their DJs For Climate Action initiatives. In everything they do, Soul Clap live up to their name as empathetic selectors and heartfelt producers, a two man feedback loop eternally tuned into the frequency of the crowd. After a year like we’ve all had, it’s only natural those energies would be channeled into an album called WTF (World Transformation Force), out Earth Day (April 22 2021.) Listen Now!
Inspired by futuristic sounds and sci-fi storylines, High Klassified has blazed one of the most original paths in electronic music, releasing stylish and conceptual EPs on Fool’s Gold while producing platinum hits for Future and The Weeknd. Law Of Automata: Valid is his most ambitious project yet, following HK’s android avatar (as designed by 3D illustrator Serwah Attafuah) as it experiences the full spectrum of human feelings over the course of the EP’s five tracks. These diverse collaborations with R&B singers Leven Kali and Illham, international MCs Zach Zoya and Izi, and EDM beat star TroyBoi each represent a different emotion, and when taken together launch the android – and the listener – to a higher plane of understanding.
