FG’s near-decade of genre smashing good vibes can be directly traced back to the high spirits of label co-founder Nick Catchdubs. Hailed as “one of the US’s premiere party DJs” by FACT Magazine and a “Mr Do It All” by XXL, Nick has been pulling double duty as a nightclub and festival mainstay while helming Fool’s Gold with partner in crime A-Trak. Now Catchdini makes a bold leap forward as a producer with today’s release of his debut album, Smoke Machine.
Smoke Machine is a 34 minute blast of hyperkinetic beats and nitrous oxide raps. Alternate universe hip-hop superheroes riff on club hookups and pop culture WTFs: Liz Claiborne, Daria, spinning G-Unit chains, Jay-Z’s MoMa installation. “We blowing up spots like Bashir did to Jacko,” boasts Heems on “Full House,” and the man has a point. Smoke Machine detonates your expectations of a “DJ album,” propelled forward instead by Catchdubs’ own tweaked and explosive sense of fun. Get it now on iTunes or stream on Spotify!
We’re taking over the Heineken House at Coachella this month, programming a full day of FG DJs, family and friends each Friday of the fest (4/10 and 4/17).
