Get ready to get blazed with Alabama bad boy Jackie Chain and our own Nick Catchdubs when their After Hours mixtape hits on 2/7. You may have already heard the late night bleeps of “Molly” and “Night Is Young” (featuring Freddie Gibbs and fellow FG representative Maggie Horn of Telephoned), but the final project has even more in store. To hear Catchdini tell it:
“I went into the tape thinking that we would just record a bunch of stuff like “Molly” over more electronic production, but what ended up coming together over the months ended up feeling way more like Jackie’s own signature sound: super melodic and diverse music to ride to. G shit, country shit… it left me free to just pick and chose the stuff I liked from a DJ standpoint and connect the dots.”
Check the cover art after the jump, as well as a new video for “Molly” that Jackie and Co shot during the Fool’s Gold / iheartcomix “Past Yo Bedtime” party at a mall in Austin during last SXSW. Read More
