Nick Catchdubs (Fool's Gold Records)
Over the past five years, Nick has rocked spots around the globe armed with unassuming charm and a signature mix of hip-hop, electro, dancehall, rock and more, with an emphasis on new music. In the process, he’s made a name for himself as a top-notch party DJ and one of the most diverse and enthusiastic selectors in todays scene, equally at home opening sold-out shows for the likes of the Clipse, MIA and Rihanna, banging it out between indie bands at the SXSW and CMJ festivals, or raving past dawn with Sinden and other new-school club wizards.
Nick’s expertly-sequenced mixtapes have the Chicago Reader calling him “tastemaking royalty who can break an act single-handedly,” while his blends, remixes, and re-edits get spun everywhere from blog radio to commercial stations like Power 106 in Los Angeles. He has a grip of original productions and official remixes on deck, and still finds time to make major moves with Fool’s Gold, the trendsetting record label he co-founded with A-Trak that’s been responsible for introducing new talent like Kid Sister to the world at large.
Yet even as the achievements and accolades stack up, Nick can’t stop looking forward to the next party, the newest tunes, and the good times still to come. Hey, it’s worked so far…
