You already know Brooklyn-based Pomp&Clout (aka Ryan Staake) thanks to inventive music videos for the likes of The Suzan and Congorock. What you might not know, however, is that P&C has been curating a pretty awesome collection of DJ mixes as well.
Nick Catchdubs is the latest to contribute to the series, which offers selectors an opportunity to explore different musical styles beyond what they are typically known for. He put together this rap-centric “Catchy Bashment” dancehall mix. “People have really been pushing techno car alarm vibes in di dance lately – which is fine when done right, but I only need one Major Lazer, not thirty Minor ones. Crazy shit happens at lower BPMs too. Bugged out, thugged out, plain old smoked out – here’s my digital dancehall rap tape, I hope you enjoy it.”
As you may have heard, the FG ROAD GOLD tour is coming to a town near you, starting this Saturday (2/12) at Soundlab in Buffalo.
Check us accross the US and Canada: Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and Telephoned teaming up from city to city, with special guests Just Blaze and host-with-the-most Kid Sister joining us in LA for a very special Dance Right throwdown at La Cita.
