Promnite is bringing the love back to club music. For all their futuristic thump and sonic precision, the tracks on his Snake Charmer EP are wonderfully, messily human. This Cali-via-NYC producer (and co-founder of LA’s beloved Athletixx DJ collective) eschews run-of-the mill bangers for the bittersweet turn up of “Gunsmoke,” featuring Denzel Curry, Nell, J.K. The Reaper and Twelve’len, and short-story worthy clubland tales on “Ride Around” with Adam Vida; meanwhile, Prom’s smooth stepper “Call Me” with Mark Johns nuzzles up against the space-age trunk rattle of “Cruise’n USA,” featuring LaDonnis. This ain’t no Soundcloud special — Snake Charmer is a four-track dive into life itself, showcasing the collaborative songwriting chops, elevated sound design and always-funky approach that makes Promnite one of the most exciting young producers in the game. Listen now (and pre-order the vinyl!)
Promnite is a master of moods. From futuristic house and hip-hop to throwback funk and r&b vibes, this LA-based producer and DJ has a catalog of slaps for every occasion, both solo and in collaboration with like-minded explorers Mr. Carmack, Djemba Djemba and his own Athletixx squad.
“Gunsmoke” is the first taste of Promnite’s new Fool’s Gold project and a fitting curtain call for 2016: heavy vibes taking listeners over the ledge and leaping into an unknown future. With new school rap hero Denzel Curry getting righteous on the mic (returning the favor for the Promnite-produced “Story: No Title” on his acclaimed Imperial) alongside Nell, J.K. The Reaper & Twelve’len, “Gunsmoke” cranks the feels (and the snares) to 11, setting a tone for Promnite’s most vivid and personal collection to date.
Five cities, thousands of fans, a whole damn supergroup of artists and DJs… DAY OFF 2015 was the biggest Fool’s Gold festival trek yet! From Travi$ Scott lighting LA on fire to Skepta shutting down NYC, from 2 Chainz and Flosstradamus turning up in MIA to A-Trak scratching everywhere, the fam went in for real! Watch the full recap video above, hit fgdayoff.com for more, and stay tuned for next year’s edition (which is sure to be even crazier). Big thanks to our friends at Grand Marnier for helping make it all possible.
We brought the whole Fool’s Gold Sound Machine down to Miami for another epic DAY OFF! Rain or shine, it was a litstravaganza for the ages. A-Trak and Mannie Fresh B2B, bringing out 2 Chainz and Juvenile? Flosstradamus preaching turn-up gospel to the South Florida HDYNATION congregation, complete with Travis Porter on some live “Drop Top”? Not to mention Alison Wonderland and Laidback Luke throwing down intense DJ sets, Vic Mensa and Towkio repping SAVEMONEY onstage (and in the crowd), and Denzel Curry, D.R.A.M., Rome Fortune and tons more keeping it sweaty all day long.
After teasing you with date and city announcements (and selling out earlybird tickets before revealing a single act), we’re psyched to release lineups for this year’s edition of FOOL’S GOLD DAY OFF events, hitting Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, Miami and Austin starting August 29th.
Label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs have once again curated North America’s most culturally resonant festival. Who else brings together street rap royalty Meek Mill (currently riding high with the #1 album in the country), UK grime icon Skepta and underground superstars Flatbush Zombies? Who can showcase EDM favorites Flosstradamus and Alison Wonderland alongside nu-millennial MCs D.R.A.M. and Post Malone? Top it off with fresh label signings Rome Fortune, ManMan Savage, Bosco, Leaf, Hoodboi, Falcons and Shash’U and you’ve got an eclectic and electrifying lineup, in true Fool’s Gold style.
“DAY OFF is our culture. It’s where the full scope of Fool’s Gold comes together, it’s everything we represent. It doesn’t belong to one scene or another: DAY OFF is generational. We’ve watched it grow, step by step, with pride. I can’t wait to pull some more surprises this year!” – A-Trak
Tickets for all five DAY OFF events are available now at fgdayoff.com, along with recap videos and photos from the last five years of FGDO shows, featuring Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Run The Jewels, Juicy J, Young Thug, French Montana and many others. Read More
