Nick Catchdubs – All Night feat. Mattie Safer (Chuurch Remix)

Posted on Jul 9th, 2018

Longtime NYC DJ/producer and Fool’s Gold records co-founder Nick Catchdubs has been on a roll with his monthly singles series, connecting the dots between classic electro, futuristic hip-hop, and tweaked beats of all kinds. Following “UFO Style” (and it’s heavy remix from Japan’s Masayoshi Iimori), Catchdini’s latest, the after midnight anthem “All Night” (featuring Mattie Safer of The Rapture) now gets an appropriately twisted rework courtesy of Chuurch. Blast it!

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!

Nick Catchdubs “UFO Style”

“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. “Thought U Knew”

Posted on Mar 6th, 2018

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. “Drippin Sauce”

Posted on Nov 7th, 2017

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!
