Kaelin Ellis – You Are Here, Start.

Posted on Jun 21st, 2024 in Releases by Mr. Goldbar

The ever-prolific Kaelin Ellis is a rare gem of a musician. His rise to prominence has grown through his skills as a talented multi-instrumentalist and a very earnest need to build community and collaboration. This is made beautifully apparent in his Fool’s Gold debut entitled, You Are Here, Start.

This album is full of the melodic and rhythmic sensibilities that has made Kaelin a respected and revered household name. With features that range from Duckwrth, Guapdadd 4000 and 2-time Juno Award winning rapper TOBi, to savant pianist Anomalie and RnB/Blues crooner C.S. Armstrong, “You Are Here, Start” covers sonic ground in ways only Kaelin can. There’s a certain warmth to this project that wraps around you like the sun.

Martyn Bootyspoon – Bingo! EP

Posted on Jun 14th, 2024 in Releases by Mr. Goldbar


Montreal’s resident club demon Martyn Bootyspoon has been taking USB sticks by storm with banging releases on Local Action, Future Classic, Rhythm Section International and more. He makes his Fool’s Gold debut with Bingo!, an EP of hedonistic jams with all the crunchiness of High Powered Boys-era French Electro. The lineage of Chicago’s classic Trax Records and Dance Mania is alive and well on Bully-Boy House and La Ronde ’92, but Bootyspoon’s own spin is unmistakable…. and horny. .

Posted on Jun 7th, 2024 in Releases by Mr. Goldbar

Dutch studio wizard Thys is the producer’s producer. As a member of Noisia he pushed the boundaries of sound design with remarkable attention to detail.

On his new Fool’s Gold EP, Eigenwise, Thys is making the most playful music of his career. He jumps from garage to futuristic electro, from hardgroove to jungle with remarkable ease, subverting familiar tropes and flipping them on their heads. He is joined at the boards by Nikki Nair, A-Trak, Machinedrum, Chloe Robinson, DJ ADHD and Holly; all happy to lend a hand in this dazzling display of expert production.

Matsu & Matthew Law – Pressure EP

Posted on May 31st, 2024 in Releases by Mr. Goldbar

When that asteroid comes for us, will you be hitting the club? There is a grim, frantic energy to the four tracks on this EP, which the New York based Matsu and Matthew Law expertly turn into irresistible rhythms. These are DJ weapons first and foremost, filled with syncopated rhythms, laser sounds, cut-up stuttery vocals with a remarkable attention to detail. If dance music’s core function is to release one’s pressure, these two Slow Roast and Fool’s Gold affiliates delivered an excellent toolkit.

FRANK LEONE – FISH

Posted on May 31st, 2024 in Releases by Mr. Goldbar

Frank Leone is a self-produced multidisciplinary artist from the woods South of Chicago. A bedroom prodigy who is just as confirmable programming beats, singing, rapping, as he is writing screenplays and creating animated TV shows. His ability to portray raw emotions in all its stillness is apparent on FISH, an album ripe with lush instrumentation and delicate patina. Collaborators such as BADBADNOTGOOD’s Chester Hansen, Coco O. (Quadron, Tyler the Creator) and Hrlum lend a few brush strokes to these songs of longing, as Frank portrays the great pink valley that is FISH.

Thys – Versatile

Posted on May 10th, 2024 in Releases by Mr. Goldbar

Dutch studio wizard Thys is back with another ridiculously fun single from his upcoming EP Eigenwise. On “Versatile,” he pulverizes syncopated syllables over rolling jungle drums with all the detailed crispness that you’d expect from the Noisia member.
