HERO “Dirty Work” EP

Posted on Jan 10th, 2019

Incorporating elements of R&B, dance and pop with a punk spirit, Canada’s HERO has no genre. Describing his approach as “putting familiar sounds through a VHS player,” HERO’s debut Dirty Work EP on Fool’s Gold features six self-produced tracks exploring the underbelly of romance over a darkly catchy, electronic pulse. From the title track (with its striking music video, filmed in Oslo with director Johannes Greve Muskat) to slow jam “Stay the Night,” Dirty Work might be FG’s most cinematic release to date, and the sound of an auspicious new artist merging his influences into one singular vision.

Promnite’s Exist EP is one of our favorite FG releases of the year: a soulful mission statement from a self-assured producer and DJ, pushing aside trends and tropes in search of timeless grooves for clubs and headphones alike. Promnite takes you into his songwriting zone in this new video, tracing a path from the raw elements (right down to YouTube tutorials!) to the dancefloor, offering an impressionistic look at how Exist came together and promising more unique vibes to come.

Smalltown DJs & Dances With White Girls “Bad Beaviour” EP

Posted on Nov 29th, 2018

Smalltown DJs are Canada’s reigning champions of fun, bass-heavy house, melding the energy of outdoor festivals like Shambala with the diverse sound they cultivated at their legendary Hifi Club in Calgary. Dances With White Girls is the infamous LA-via-Philly producer and vocalist crafting absurdist anthems with everyone from Chris Lake to Pitbull (while dropping knowledge hourly as your favorite artist’s favorite Tweeter). We’re beyond excited to bring these two forces together for the first time on the Bad Behaviour EP, featuring the bumping title track with SkiiTour and the quirky club jam “What’s Your Poison.” Listen up!
