LA based, NY bred DJ and producer Promnite controls a groove like none other, mixing timeless dance vibes with futuristic production sheen and unexpected songwriting twists. After dropping “Swim” featuring B. Lewis (“an infectious summer banger” – Earmilk) and the head-nodding “4 Letters” featuring TZAR, he releases the title track from his forthcoming Exist EP (out 10/26 on Fool’s Gold). Feel good synth riffs, live band jams and cut up vocals collide for another impossibly funky cut from the maestro himself. Listen here!
A-Trak & Baauer unexpectedly made a techno track called “Dumbo Drop” last year. When it was time to get a remix they picked their favorite UK Hardcore loose cannon DJ Gammer, who delivered a bone-shattering monster. Do not play this next to small animals. Turn it up.
A-Trak teams up with New York house legend Todd Terry for new single “DJs Gotta Dance More”: an ode to record-digging and bedroom beatmaking, driven by the OG’s gravelly voice. It’s the first ever collaboration between the pioneering Terry (responsible for three decades of club classics from Jungle Brothers’ “I’ll House You” to iconic remixes for Everything But The Girl, Bjork and Daft Punk) and his spiritual godson A-Trak, who’s spent a career bringing the worlds of hip-hop and house music together with multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated projects and his scene-building Fool’s Gold label. Together, their soulful, delicate earworm is a statement of purpose for fans and fellow artists around the globe to keep pushing art forward. Listen up!

Boston duo Maka + Durkin channel global dance vibes on their effervescent new Fool’s Gold release Waterproof, blending afrobeats and dancehall rhythms, classic house and R&B, and future-minded beats from their hometown and beyond. But Waterproof’s personal touches take those international musical vibes to a deeper level. From bilingual single “Malie,” sung in English and Maka’s native Tongan (“Malie is a Tongan word that means well done. It’s most often used to appreciate when people are dancing well, or after someone sings a song and does a good job”) to perseverance anthem “Tropical Rain” featuring Ghostdad, Waterproof adds a welcome dose of island magic and IRL emotions to Maka + Durkin’s hybrid electronic sound. Get into it!
