Rising DJ / producer Andrew Luce unveils “AH AH,” the second single off the forthcoming LANTERNS EP (out June 7th). A collaboration between Luce, SoundCloud rap pioneer Smokepurpp and vocalist Teddy, “AH AH” is a fresh take on the trap-infused production stylings that have become Luce’s signature sound. Melding emotional vocals from Smokepurpp and Teddy with innovative drum programming and subtly melodic synth work “AH AH” is a summer playlist must-have, and Luce’s most exciting offering yet. Listen here.
Sammy Bananas is at his fizziest on “Cherry Soda,” a new collaboration with LA vocalist Kaleena Zanders. This wonderfully poppy, house-y jam is not only the latest in a decade of SB releases on FG, but a speaker-blasting announcement for his debut album Someday, coming this summer. Get into it!

High Klassified doubles down on his signature sound with Kanvaz, a remarkable new EP out now on Fool’s Gold. The young producer has taken his crystalline melodies and inventive drum programming from the basements of Laval, Ontario to the farthest reaches of the globe, working with Future and The Weeknd on their hit collab “Comin Out Strong,” Mick Jenkins on his critically acclaimed “Gold” and A-Trak and Lex Luger on the groundbreaking Low Pros collective. But on Kanvaz, HK creates a true world of his own, mixing heavy, video-game inspired instrumentals with gorgeous vocal collaborations featuring Leaf, Da-P and Zach Zoya. Listen now.
Following the release of his debut Fool’s Gold single “Take Me” with Alexander Lewis and Jojee, rising production prodigy Andrew Luce announces his the new EP LANTERNS, out June 7th. LANTERNS marks a new chapter in this rising producer’s evolution – his first multi-track original release, filled with emotive melodies, experimental sound design, and a diverse, one-of-a-kind approach to rhythm.
Title track “LANTERNS” is the perfect introduction, a funk-infused collaboration with vocalist Someother. This ambitious, bass heavy blend sets the tone for the project and serves as a must-listen preview for Luce’s old and new fans alike. Turn it up!
Michael Christmas is a larger-than-life personality, one-of-a-kind MC, and the latest original to join the Fool’s Gold family. He shows off his melodic side on “Girlfriend,” the new single (with a hilarious music video starring comic heroes Orlando Jones and Ron Funches) and first salvo from his upcoming LP. Sing along!
LA producer Hoodboi continues his musical odyssey with emotional new single “Drowning” featuring Djemba Djemba and Julius. Hoodboi’s signature R&B inspired sound is given new wings by singer Julius and fellow envelope-pushing producer Djemba Djemba, whose impressive resume includes writing credits for Justin Bieber, Major Lazer and Kehlani, as well as an ambitious catalog of solo releases and remixes on Mad Decent and more. Listen up!
Electronic heavyweight Paper Diamond drops another gem with new single, “Bass Real Big.” This fresh collaboration with Ms. Williams (last heard on heavy jams from Brillz and LAXX) is the latest track from PD’s forthcoming debut album on Fool’s Gold, following the heavy duty “Work 9000” and emotional “Downfalls” featuring Polina. “Bass Real Big” shows off another side of Paper Diamond’s inimitable approach to dance music, more than living up to its title with a double-barreled speaker workout that’s strikingly minimal and wildly confident. A kick, a siren, and a bad-ass vocal, what more do you need? Listen now!
“UFO Style” is the first in a series of new singles from NYC DJ/producer and Fool’s Gold co-founder Nick Catchdubs: a concentrated blast of distorted drum programming, hypnotic synths and scratched up text-to-speech apps. It’s the first proper follow up to Nick’s beat-laden Smoke Machine LP (as heard in Apple Watch commercials and Broad City), kicking off a new era of Catchdini’s anything-goes approach to electronic music. To let him tell it: “I love old records, but have no interest in making retro songs. I’m energized by the spirit of New York you hear in Malcolm McLaren’s Duck Rock and Jive Ryhythm Trax, comic books and rave flyers, late night radio tapes and shitty drum machines… to Xerox that feeling would be boring. But putting my own spin on those inspirations is crazy exciting! ‘UFO Style’ is me wondering what it would sound like if The Orb made music for subway dancers. Please play it on a good system.”
Portuguese production phenom Holly has been taking over the bass scene with his singularly heavy creations, cutting and pasting influences from classic rave, futuristic dubstep and modern trap. After winning the live beat battle at A-Trak’s first annual Goldie Awards in Brooklyn, he’s dropping the devastating “Hamm Sammich” as a reward. A collaboration with infamous female rapper Honey Cocaine and London beat whiz Sh?m, “Hamm Sammich” is a joyously insane speaker workout ready for a festival near you. Grab your condiment of choice and get busy! Bump it here.
