FG co-founder Nick Catchdubs will be hitting Webster Hall Studio every Friday for a new weekly party, Nick Catchdubs & Friends. The first part of that name? You already know, strictly high-grade party music: new hip hop, club classics, remixes and more. The friends? Guest DJs and performances each week, starting with a set from A$AP Nast this coming Friday (4/4).
Get your tickets now (the one and only Clockwork is playing upstairs!) to come party. Reduced admission before 12 with RSVP at NickyDigital.com! Meanwhile, download this promo mix for a taste of what’s in store…
The future is now! Y’all haven’t even heard Duck Sauce’s new cut “NRG” yet, but Skrillex and friends Kill The Noise and Milo & Otis are already smashing their remix in sets around the globe. Check it out now on Soundcloud and get ready for Duck Sauce’s Quack LP (featuring the original version and 11 other megajams) on 4/15. QUACK IS BACK!
100s is bringing West Coast rap back to the future. His new release, IVRY, is a glimpse into a melodic new chapter for the Berkeley MC, taking classic mack vibes to chic new heights. From the smoothed out “Ten Freaky Hoes” and the Rick James-worthy “Different Type Of Love” to the ice cold flows of “Inglish Outro” and “Thru My Veins,” 100s spits X-rated bedtime stories worthy of classic Too $hort, but with a modern attitude, approach, and peerless sense of style all his own. Download now at foolsgoldrecs.com/100s.
Beak up yer selfies with Duck Sauce’s new free “Duck You” app! Download now from the iTunes app store, add duck beaks to your photos, and share with the #DuckYou tag so we can see ‘em! Stay tuned for Quack, hatching 4/15…
100s is taking West Coast rap back to the future. His upcoming Fool’s Gold EP, IVRY, is a glimpse into a melodic new chapter for the Berkeley MC. Daft Punk gone G-Funk? Prince’s lowrider playlist? IVRY takes classic mack vibes to chic new heights, and “Ten Freaky Hoes” (just premiered by The Fader) is a perfect teaser of what 100s’ new release has in store. Over a smoothed out track from Vaughn Oliver of FG disco duo Oliver (with talkbox assist from Numbers’ resident funkster Redinho), 100s spits X-rated bedtime stories worthy of classic Too $hort, but with an attitude, approach, and peerless sense of style all his own.
Sleepy Tom stays posting new bootlegs and other DJ treats to his Soundcloud. He recently let go of two housed up takes on A$AP Ferg’s “Shabba” and fellow Canadian Drake’s “Worst Behaviour,” go grab em! (And while you’re at it, check out ST’s new video for his EP’s title track, “The Currency.” More music on the way!)
Catchdini threw on the blindfold and hit the stacks with Mass Appeal for their Rhythm Roulette series, picking three random records from the bins at Good Records and making a beat from them on the spot. Watch it come together here, and grab the finished beat below. Check Nick next Friday (2/28) with DJ Rashad and DJ Spinn at American Museum Of Natural History’s awesome One Step Beyond party.
Buffalo young’ns Eyes Everywhere make their Fool’s Gold Clubhouse debut with “Off Bailey,” a spring-loaded planet rocker that could only have emerged from the land of cold winters and hot wings. Grab the sauce and turn up the bass to this one. Get it now at foolsgoldrecs.com/clubhouse!
The Low Pros revolution continues! A-Trak and Lex Luger didn’t even let the dust settle on lead explosion “Jack Tripper” feat Young Thug and PeeWee Longway before following up with the megaton anthem “100 Bottles” featuring Travi$ Scott on vocals and Brillz adding extra slap to the track. KABOOM BITCHES! Stay tuned for more from these low end professionals very soon…
Smalltown DJs understand the physics of party music better than almost anyone on the planet. (What else would you expect from two selectors who actually built their own nightclub?) Their energetic, inventive sets have taken the duo around the globe, and their original productions are spun by the likes of A-Trak, Diplo, Annie Mac and more. Yet even veterans are able to surprise, and Smalltown’s latest, “See Thru,” is a true revelation of a tune. Grab it now from foolsgoldrecs.com/clubhouse!
This hybrid jam, built around the soulful vocals of Lisa Lobsinger (Broken Social Scene), manages to feel equally at home slamming a club’s main floor or anchoring an after party playlist. Is it nu-disco? Moombahton? EDM indie rock? (And where do the bugged out remixes from Thugli and Astronomar & Wuki fit?) All we know is that you won’t hear songs like these anywhere else, making them perfect additions to the Fool’s Gold Clubhouse.
