Last December A-Trak unleashed his highly anticipated Tuna Melt EP to outstanding reviews and much-deserved praise. The Fool’s Gold imprint featured a four-song extended play capturing the essence of A-Trak’s refreshingly unique hip-hop infused electro style. The title track, a collaboration with Tommy Trash, is joined by “Landline” featuring trap masters GTA, “Jumbo” featuring bass-heavy Galantis and “Disco Nap” featuring 80s-influenced Oliver.
Today, the remix package is finally available for purchase and includes a seven piece deluxe assisted by Grandtheft, Les Rhythmes Digitales, Q-Bert, Funkin Matt, Jack Beats and The Partysquad, each providing a distinguished flare. Also included is a revamped version of “Landline,” which you might recognize from Adidas Originals’ campaign showcasing urban lifestyle at its finest. The remix package brings the EP to new heights, once again crowning Fool’s Gold as the King of electro groove.
Gregor Salto has returned with Funkin Matt to follow up recent outings, “Gimme Sum” and “Bumbum,” with an animated release for Laidback Luke’s MixMash Records. Known to boast a wide variety of sounds; from the tribal drop of “Azumba” to the acid line of “Love Sensation” to the groovy house of “Danny.” Salto brought his fully-loaded arsenal to the studio this February, resulting in the all-encompassing “Foxy.” With a cunning Dutch build, sly injections of synths, and a devious vocal-drop one-two punch, Gregor’s latest release is downright, aptly titled, “Foxy.”
Essential to festival sets from the likes of A-Trak, Crookers, and Nicky Romero, “I Wish” is a buzzing, eccentric jam that feels right at home on Fool’s Gold Records. As A-Trak asserted in the August edition of Fool’s Gold Radio, “This song is not by R. Kelly.” Instead, we get raspy vocals and carnal desires from a whimsical robot who most likely listened to the song “I Believe I Can Fly” one too many times. The reverberating robo-yearnings not only drew our sympathy, but also an uncontrollable desire to dance. Funkin Matt‘s funky joie de vivre is now available at 320 kbps. Just ask our favorite R&B urophiliac: “This is the remix to ignition, Hot and fresh out the kitchen.” Admit it, you continued humming the lyrics.
