High Klassified “Kanvaz”

Posted on Apr 27th, 2018

High Klassified doubles down on his signature sound with Kanvaz, a remarkable new EP out now on Fool’s Gold. The young producer has taken his crystalline melodies and inventive drum programming from the basements of Laval, Ontario to the farthest reaches of the globe, working with Future and The Weeknd on their hit collab “Comin Out Strong,” Mick Jenkins on his critically acclaimed “Gold” and A-Trak and Lex Luger on the groundbreaking Low Pros collective. But on Kanvaz, HK creates a true world of his own, mixing heavy, video-game inspired instrumentals with gorgeous vocal collaborations featuring Leaf, Da-P and Zach Zoya. Listen now.

High Klassified feat. Zach Zoya “1919”

Posted on Apr 4th, 2018

High Klassified makes his return to Fool’s Gold today with “1919” feat. Zach Zoya. Over the last few years, this Quebec-based record producer has gone global with his signature sound: a mix of dreamy, video game-inspired melodies and heavy duty drum programming featured by Future and The Weeknd on their hit collab “Comin Out Strong” and Mick Jenkins on his critically acclaimed “Gold.” When he’s not lacing hip hop and R&B kingpins, HK’s own originals on the Fool’s Gold EPs Kronostasis and Palindroma have him ranked alongside trap virtuosos like Mr. Carmack, Sam Gellaitry and Metro Boomin (who HK has collaborated with as part of A-Trak and Lex Luger’s Low Pros collective). Check it out!

Moby “Black Lacquer”

Posted on Feb 10th, 2017

Moby is a true electronic music pioneer. He redefined rave on singles like 1990’s “Go,” then slowed down to explore its aftermath on the multiplatinum Play LP. Decades later, the man is still firing off pointed, personal salvos and dance music curveballs from his LA studio—and, in a most fitting partnership, he’s enlisted Fool’s Gold to remix his iconic catalog on the diverse new Black Lacquer EP. Treasure Fingers, Madeaux, High Klassified, and FG co-founder Nick Catchdubs each put their own spin on Moby hits like “Natural Blues” and “Porcelain,” bouncing from industrial experiments and futuristic techno workouts to late-night house and zooted club bass. Black Lacquer isn’t the Moby you’ve heard before, but a surprising collection that keeps his trailblazing spirit alive.

High Klassified feat Mick Jenkins “Gold” Video

Posted on Oct 24th, 2016

Laval, Quebec’s own prince of bass High Klassified returns to his Kronostasis EP (SOCAN’s Best Electronic Release of 2016) to create a wonderfully surreal video for “Gold” featuring Mick Jenkins. However, the beloved Chicago MC is nowhere to be found in director Rachid Allaoua’s dreamlike clip; instead, High Klassified stars in an engrossingly strange love story, soundtracked by Mick’s heartfelt vocals (“I got gold all in my skin / water in my eyes”) and HK’s futuristic thump.

High Klassified “Kronostasis” Out Now

Bow down to High Klassified, Fool’s Gold’s own bass lord and style king. The Montreal producer raised on 808s and RPGs takes his sound to weird new heights on the Kronostasis EP, picking up where last years auspicious debut Palindroma (“Sounds like anime looks” – Noisey) left off. “Okarina Of Time” and “Saccade Two” bookend the EP with double doses of 64-bit turn up, while “Saccade One” and “Gold” (featuring Chicago rising star Mick Jenkins) bring out a heady, jazzy side to HK that we’ve never heard before. Yet nowhere is High Klassified’s singular swag more evident than “Time In Vain,” and its creepy, cheeky must-see video. Kronostasis is where futuristic slaps meet one-of-a-kind personality: play it loud, follow HK on Snapchat (trust us), and stay tuned for more.
