Producer Nick Hook continues his streak of unique collabs with “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” a rowdy and righteous UK-vs-BK stomper featuring young grime hero Novelist. Like the rest of Nick’s upcoming Fool’s Gold album Relationships, “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” was recorded in-person at his Greenpoint studio, thespacepit. Nov sums up the track (and the creative spirit that fuels Relationships as a whole) in his Instagram post about the producer earlier this summer. “Nick Hook – This man gave me a new outlook on life when I met him in New York at 18 years old when I went out there alone. He reiterated to me that FREEDOM starts in the mind and to do what you want with 100% of your energy.” Check out the video premiere on THE FADER.
Catch Nick Hook on his Get (Back) In The Van Tour this fall! Tour dates after the jump.
A-Trak and Tommy Trash’s funk phenomenon “Lose My Mind” gets a high-powered remix courtesy of OWSLA-approved upstart Mija. She stays true to the original track’s feel-good strut (and cowbell!) while adding her own supercharged thump and awesome vocal chops, making this mix an absolute must-have for dance freaks and party people worldwide.
Black Dave is NYC personified, a fixture in the music and skate worlds whose presence keeps the underground as lit as humanly possible. Fresh from ripping the stage at Fool’s Gold DAY OFF (and his Thrasher-approved part in Zoo York’s bone-crushing viral skate video NYBD), Black Dave drops his first official release on FG in the form of “Hangover,” produced by Nick Catchdubs. It’s the opening salvo from their collab EP of the same name, a collection of bass anthems and turn up tales from the city that never sleeps.
LA’s Madeaux and ATL’s ManMan Savage join forces for the mesmerizing “Pull Up,” taken from their eponymous EP (out 9/23). “Get money” motivation gone Aeon Flux, this is not for the faint of heart nor small speakers.
“Submerged” is the first taste of GEOTHEORY’s Tales Untold EP, an awesome hybrid of trap horns, screwed house basslines and flute riffs. Listen now and stay tuned for more from this one-of-a-kind NYC talent on his debut Fool’s Gold release.
Hoodboi’s summer jam “Closer” featuring ASTR is the gift that keeps on giving! The original track’s emotional choruses and technicolor sound palette get beautifully bent on three prismatic new remixes. Soundcloud sensation Kid Froopy delivers ADD funk on his slowed-down and chopped-up take, Kende provides his signature Swiss beats, and Hoodboi himself reworks “Closer” into an uber-melodic, uptempo “Moonrise mix” that races like the best video game soundtrack you’ve never heard.
Spend a day in the life of LNDN DRGS with their new visual for “2 Brand New Phones” and “Hurt My Hand.” Jay Worthy and friends (Aston Matthews, Earl Swavey & the BornxRaised crew) bop through house parties and hit the telly with baddies while street-level funk from Burnout 2 blasts from the speakers. This is party music for the people… play loud and ride out. Download the Burnout series for free at smarturl.it/burnoutbundle.
“Bring Me Your Love” is the first official solo release from Giraffage since his acclaimed No Reason EP. After spending almost two years on the road, it’s no wonder that “Bring Me Your Love” is an ode to IRL connection, at a time when we need it most. Giraffage’s pitch shifted melodies and signature drum loops are more sophisticated than ever, priming a glittering canvas for him to splash and speckle THEA’s falsetto vocals. As her soaring hooks melt into Giraffage’s bent synths and 808 orchestra, computer love has never felt so lifelike — or necessary.
