“Funk U” is truth in advertising: WEISS and A-Trak moving your body with insane drums, an iconic sample, and decades of DJ expertise. Marking WEISS & A-Trak’s first official collaboration (following Trizzy’s remix of WEISS & Harry Romero’s “Where Do We Go” and years of sharing the decks in mutual admiration), the chopped-up, feel-good “Funk U” is a multi-generational joy explosion in true Fool’s Gold fashion. Listen Now!
A-Trak and Ferreck Dawn are back digging in the crates with the soulful stomp of “My Own Way.” These DJ heroes follow up their hit collaboration “Coming Home” (and a year of solo heaters with Defected and Duck Sauce) by crafting a new anthem from vintage samples and timeless house energy. Listen Now!
When A-Trak and Dave 1 of Chromeo teamed up as The Brothers Macklovitch, they set out to channel the sounds of their formative years: countless hours spent digging for records and falling in love with music as funk-hungry Montreal teens. The follow up to their debut single “Give Love To Get Some” (and its Waajeed and Morgan Geist remixes) is “I Can Call You” a cover of a little known 1995 gem by the R&B group Portrait, sped up and jazzed up like it came straight from their parents’ basement: with Dave on vocals Trizzy on the cuts. Listen Now!
Joining a storied lineage of family entertainers like the Isleys, the Allmans, and the Baldwins, Grammy-nominated siblings A-Trak and Dave1 have made their mother happy and finally teamed up as The Brothers Macklovitch. The turntable icon and Chromeo frontman meld funky influences from their formative days (Jamiroquai, Brand New Heavies, Masters At Work) with crisp production and soulful hooks, aided by rising R&B star Leven Kali on debut Fool’s Gold single “Give Love To Get Some.” Listen now!
Grammy nominated DJ hero A-Trak teams up with Australia born, London based producer Loods for “What Can I Do,” a classic, piano driven house cut. It’s the first of several new Trizzy collaborations to release in the coming months, all featuring the instantly catchy, hands in the air funkiness that the Fool’s Gold co-founder has made his signature! Listen Now!
