Ta-Ku – Long Time No See (Ft. Atu) : Must Hear Chillout Original [Future Classic]

Posted in Chill by josh | Tags: , , , ,

Ta-Ku

Australian taste-making beatmaker / producer Ta-Ku manages to blow us away with each and every new production. Last month we featured his first single "Love Again", off his upcoming EP Songs To Make Up To, which included soulful vocals from JMSN and co-production from Sango. With today’s newest release, “Long Time No See”, he’s partnered up with another amazing Soulection artist named Atu to create a more chilled out, smooth production. Starting out slowly on the piano, the track glides through the air with a chilling ambiance to it, breaking in drums, hi-hats and samples mid-way, layered together to create a very emotional, feel good track. You can stream the tune below and pre-order Songs To Make Up To which is set to release June 12th.

A-Trak Releases Outrageous Music Video For “Push” Full Of Nudity, Tigers & More

Posted in Bangin, Chill, Video by nick | Tags: , , , , ,

A-Trak Push Music Video

One of dance music's biggest trend setters and head of the influential Fool's Gold Records, mixmaster A-Trak has always been on top of the game.  However, recently the CEO has been on an entirely new level, putting out a full length mixtape last month with DC rapper Wale featuring an all star cast including A$AP Ferg, Chance The Rapper, and Pusha T that was released for free to celebrate the holiday 'Festivus'.  One of his biggest singles yet is his disco infused electro anthem "Push" drawing some classic inspiration delivered in a very modern way.

The song has been gaining huge momentum, and A-Trak has just brought it to life with an outrageous new music video. Featuring cameos from A-Trak himself, Atlanta producer TM88 of 808 Mafia, a series of Nude models, and even a tiger, it is impossible to be bored through the length of the video.

A-Trak even had a few words on why he chose this direction for the music video. "My approach to dance music has always been a bit left, so the last thing I wanted was one of those sparkler bottle 'lets make this night live forever!' videos". "Instead, I wanted to make something with the opulence of a rap video, but shot like a renaissance painting. It's kind of like Eyes Wide Shut meets Burning Man."

Giraffage Tell Me Fools Gold

Once again, Giraffage has produced an irresistible original tune with his release of “Chocolate.” This track serves as the San Francisco producer's second single off No Reason; a 4 track EP set to release via A-Trak’s Fools Gold Records on November 18th. After previously delivering “Tell Me” a couple weeks ago, we get another taste of the chilled out trap and future-bass sound we’ve come to love by this new member on Fools Gold’s roster. Giraffage blends bouncing synths and chimes along mellow, glitchy-trap percussion displaying his unique production techniques. You can grab this as a download with a pre-order off the album on iTunes below. Also, be sure to catch Giraffage on his "No Reason" Tour with dates below. Enjoy

The LA duo who've given many a reason to dance are back with a full flex release as gLAdiator literally had me doing the lil terio "ooOOo kill'em" move after hearing their newest remix. The two producers apply a proper layer of added trap and festival rage into A-Trak and Lex Luger debut single "Muscle", which showcases production from High Klassified and is featured on the collaborative side-project EP Low Pros . This robust rendition will have you fighting the urge to express yourself in a public or private setting and the good folks at Fool's Gold Records have allowed us to premiere the release before it becomes available tomorrow (June 10th). Enjoy
