Fool’s Gold’s very own Nick Catchdubs goes in for some Gold on Gold action with his remix of GoldLink’s “Ay Ay” off his debut mixtape The God Complex. Catchdubs takes the DC area native “future bounce” flow and flips it into a hip-house flavored tune. Download the remix now for free and if you are in NYC tonight catch them both playing Webster Hall (GoldLink upstairs with Purity Ring and Nick in the studio with Kid Fresh for his weekly residency).
Summer is upon us, and the Fool’s Gold squad is hitting the road in full force.
