FACT mix 402 comes courtesy of Nick Catchdubs, co-founder of the Fool’s Gold label and one of the best party DJs around.
People sometimes say “party DJ” like it’s a slight – as if this whole dance music culture that so much of this is built around wasn’t to do with parties before it was anything, and as if plenty of the best music ever made, from, we don’t know, ‘Fix Up Look Sharp’ to ‘We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothes Off’, doesn’t sound better at a sweaty club with you and your friends than it does anywhere else – which is bullshit. Fool’s Gold have been throwing and soundtracking great parties since the mid-’00s, releasing early records by Kid Sister, Kingdom and Count & Sinden, as well as bigger projects such as Danny Brown’s ‘XXX’ (not to mention his new album, ‘Old’) and El-P & Killer Mike’s ‘Run the Jewels’. At this point, they’re completely on top of things.
Catchdubs’ FACT mix is, in his own words, designed for bumping in your car, kicking off with material from his forthcoming ‘Smoke Machine’ album before rolling out cuts from Kanye West, Earl, Dave Nada, Outkast and more. It’s strictly for your jeeps – download it below.
