Names of the moment…

Names to Know
That you should definitely know about!
This is a hiper-ultra-mega post about my favorite producers in all sort of fields of the moment, so I had to write a lot more than just some simple words.
Catch the rest inside the post, with lot’s of previews.
Enjoy and talk back…

Most of the previews I’m showcasing here, are of an extreme video quality design, and therefore, where the most qualified works of each artist I could find to better exemplify their work. Less talk, and more videos…

Fools Gold – Founded by DJs A-Trak (Kanye West Dj) and Nick Catchdubs, and has the participation of Dust La Rock as graphic director, this is another soundbreaking record label of the moment.
