Proper Villains (the bass master dropping chunky tracks on Classic / Defected, Southern Fried and Psycho Disco) and Nasty Nigel (the multitasking Queens MC, DJ and producer bouncing between grimy World’s Fair raps and epic jungle sets on The Lot Radio) team up in the spirit of chatterbox club jams from Green Velvet and Sagat for “Vacation,” a brain melting body mover. Or is it more of a body melting brain mover? Whatever part of your physical gets scrambled, PV and NN’s hypnotic and memorable collab is must-have, mixed up house music for our manic times. Listen Now!
Smalltown DJs and Dances With White Girls combined forces for the Bad Behaviour EP, a concentrated blast of feel-good club beats and hooky vocals on the title track featuring SkiiTour and raver anthem “What’s Your Poison.” Now they keep the party going with a remix package from Neon Steve, Proper Villains, Joluca and OAKK, bouncing everywhere from neck snapping trap to hypnotic late-night tech house. Turn it up!
FG founder Nick Catchdubs teamed up with New York duo Fire Alarm (producer Proper Villains and MC Metric Man) for the enjoyably rave-y “Pick Up Yaself.” Now after a breakdance-ready remix from Shash’U, Proper Villains adds his own personal touch to the single with a tech house take ready to soundtrack a late night near you. Turn it up!
Hey kids, physical media! The people asked for Catchdini’s album IRL and we obliged. (We’ll let the man himself take it from here…)
About a year ago I put out my album Smoke Machine, and people kept hitting me up about pressing it on CD ever since. So in place of a cake, we’ll celebrate with twelve tracks on compact disc, along with the More Smoke remix EP as a bonus, extra illustrations from cover artist Niv Bavarsky, and some shout-outs and hidden messages. Get your copy now at the FG store, and geek on some liner notes while you’re at it! Read More
Rogerseventytwo’s insanely catchy “You Take Me Higher” continues to make new fans (HI WOLFGANG!) thanks to its infectious vocal loops and boundless sense of joy. Ministry Of Sound re-released the track in Europe earlier this year along with some remixes, including this chunky version by our bud Proper Villains. Check it out…
Word is still spreading about our afterparties in Austin this year with iheartcomix, Past Yo Bedtime. Dancing! Sweating! Raving! In a damn shopping mall!

BK record spinner (and FG co-founder) Nick Catchdubs has been in the lab working on a gang of new musical projects, two of which are out for public consumption this week. First up is a collab with Proper Villains remixing the Cataracs’ “Club Love,” which premiered today on RCRD LBL.
Nick’s mix of dancehall detonator “Click Mi Finger” dropped Tuesday as part of a brand new Erup remix EP featuring Porier, Grahamzilla and Lunice (word to being the only non-Canadian remixer, USA! USA! USA!) that you can stream over at The Fader and purchase on iTunes and wherever else fine digital music is sold. More goodies out shortly…
