Nick Catchdubs feat Troy Ave & Heems “Full House” + “Smoke Machine” LP Pre-Order

Posted on Feb 26th, 2015

After dropping the singles “Bizness” with IAMSU & Jay Ant and “Wuts That” with B.I.C., Nick Catchdubs properly announces his full Smoke Machine LP (out 4/28) with bizarro NYC jam “Full House” featuring Troy Ave and Heems. (Cue bomb drop sound effects.) Says Catchdini:

“Full House” started as a beat I made on my couch. Too jiggy to live as an instrumental headphone thing, too weird to give to any artists for their own projects. So with WEIRD JIGGY as a spiritual principle, I went out and recorded an album piece by piece, stockpiling vocals (Troy & Heems were recorded – like most of these – in the side room at Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn) until I had twelve records that felt so much like “me” that they wouldn’t fit anywhere else but Smoke Machine.

Art by Pierre Thyss

The first Fool’s Gold hip‐hop release of 2015 is the uber‐melodic debut from Toledo, Ohio newcomer tshawntrusst. On “I’m That Nigga,” the MC drops confident, R&B‐inspired flows over a futuristic, neck‐snapping beat from Chris McClenney (Soulection) x Rvdical The Kid. In three short minutes, tshawntrusst throws down the gauntlet as one of the new year’s most exciting new voices and continues Fool’s Gold’s streak of auspicious rap debuts from Kid Cudi to Danny Brown and beyond. Get it now on iTunes!
