Nick Catchdubs continues his singles series with the uptempo tweaker “All Night.” Featuring megaphone vocals from The Rapture OG Mattie Safer, crazy distorted 808s, and loads of cowbell (why not?!?), it’s another welcome New York beat freakout from Catchdini. Following the DJ-approved “UFO Style” and it’s heavy-duty Masayoshi Iimori remix, “All Night” is an electronic broadcast unlike anything else out there… keep watching the skies for more. Turn it up!
Catchdini kicks of his new monthly singles series with “UFO Style,” a big one for the clubs and the CHUDs. He gets even wavier with a bugout music video (happy 420 kids!) and sets the stage for more slaps to come. Follow the Spotify playlist for even more body movers & mind expanders.
“UFO Style” is the first in a series of new singles from NYC DJ/producer and Fool’s Gold co-founder Nick Catchdubs: a concentrated blast of distorted drum programming, hypnotic synths and scratched up text-to-speech apps. It’s the first proper follow up to Nick’s beat-laden Smoke Machine LP (as heard in Apple Watch commercials and Broad City), kicking off a new era of Catchdini’s anything-goes approach to electronic music. To let him tell it: “I love old records, but have no interest in making retro songs. I’m energized by the spirit of New York you hear in Malcolm McLaren’s Duck Rock and Jive Ryhythm Trax, comic books and rave flyers, late night radio tapes and shitty drum machines… to Xerox that feeling would be boring. But putting my own spin on those inspirations is crazy exciting! ‘UFO Style’ is me wondering what it would sound like if The Orb made music for subway dancers. Please play it on a good system.”
B.I.C. link back up with Nick Catchdubs for “Thought U Knew,” another unconventional banger from their forthcoming FTW EP. Hyperactive BX bars zoom over cut-n-paste string chops and bass drops for a Fool’s Gold rap cut like none other. Play this loud, preferably in a residential neighborhood!
B.I.C. spill manic Uptown charisma all over “Drippin Sauce.” The supercharged track (and it’s deranged cable box music video) is the first tease from FTW, the group’s Nick Catchdubs-produced EP dropping early next year. Yesus, Pete, Ill Spills, and Izzy-Oz have been a dependably turnt presence on the New York underground since their Funkmaster Flex approved debut “Yo Soy Widdit,” but “Drippin Sauce” takes their appeal well beyond the city limits, blasting uncut Bronx energy to the rest of the known (and unknown) universe. Listen now!
