After a series of well-received EPs and collaborations with A-Trak, Tommy Trash and Manman Savage, rising star Madeaux announces his debut Fool’s Gold album, the aptly titled Burn, out Jan 19. Lead single “Run With It” features dancehall antihero Tommy Lee Sparta (“Jamaican music’s first goth” – The FADER) and is an appropriately aggressive stomper, teasing the middle finger vibes and electronic experimentation that Burn has in store. Listen now everywhere!
Tommy Trash created the original Group Chat EP while touring with his Fool’s Gold labelmates, and their late night, on-the-go energy was tangible on every single track. On the Australian dance king’s new Group Chat Remixes EP, he takes his family affair global, enlisting a surprising batch of brand new producers and rising remix talent to flip those collabs with A-Trak, Gladiator, Kittens and more into fresh club weapons. Turn your read receipts on, these are coming in hot…
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.
Tommy Trash’s newest Fool’s Gold project is a family affair like none other. The electro emperor’s Group Chat EP was assembled during the “Gold Gone Wild” tour, which paired Tommy with some of FG’s newest and truest talents, from label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs to LA young guns Madeaux, Kittens and Gladiator. From the moment that first drop hits, you can tell that this project was created with the previous night’s set still ringing in the collaborators’ ears; Group Chat ain’t no quickie collage, however. Tommy’s lifetime of dance music expertise serves as a masterful spirit guide for the anything-goes experimentation, connecting the dots between A-Trak’s pop smarts and and Catchdubs’ cut-n-paste hip hop chops, adding extra oomph to Kittens late-night breakbeats and Gladiator’s trap symphonies, and polishing Madeaux’s industrial-strength darkness into a techno gem far greater than the sum of its parts. Teamwork makes the dream work… text this one to a friend near you! Read More

Giraffage and THEA’s gentle jam “Bring Me Your Love” gets a dose of executive realness from LA’s Madeaux, who cranks the tempo (and the attitude) for a housey mix equally at home strutting down a catwalk or banging out the 4am warehouse function.
Giraffage’s new single “Bring Me Your Love” gets turned into a tender epic courtesy of Canadian sibling duo Tennyson. The digital glitter of the original is replaced by yearning strings and live drums, leaving the monumental bassline and THEA’s yearning vocals intact and aimed straight at your heart.
Madeaux is one of electronic music’s boldest upcoming acts, seamlessly weaving together unique takes on dance, hip-hop, and more. ManMan Savage is ATL’s resident turn up god, with energy levels unmatched by his contemporaries. Solo, they’re two of Fool’s Gold’s rising superstars. Together, they’re a club music supercollider, responsible for two of the year’s coolest hip-hop hybrids on their new Pull Up EP. Madeaux brings out a melodic new side of ManMan, while the young Savage turns industrial drum tracks into hypnotically catchy anthems, equally at home in the strip club or on the festival stage.
LA’s Madeaux and ATL’s ManMan Savage join forces for the mesmerizing “Pull Up,” taken from their eponymous EP (out 9/23). “Get money” motivation gone Aeon Flux, this is not for the faint of heart nor small speakers.
