Fool's Gold co-founder Nick Catchdubs has spent years pulling double duty, helming one of the world's most beloved indie labels by day while holding it down behind the turntables at shows around the globe night after night.
Hailed as "one of the US's premiere party DJs" by FACT Magazine and a DJing "Mr Do It All" by XXL, Nick's wildly diverse sets have launched hands into the air everywhere from Lollapalooza and Electric Daisy Carnival to GQ's invite-only Super Bowl bash. Since launching Fool's Gold with his friend A-Trak, Nick has introduced artists like Danny Brown and Duck Sauce to the world and been hailed as an "indie innovator" in the process by Billboard and the New York Times.
Catchdubs-curated mixtapes like Wale's acclaimed Mixtape About Nothing and the alt-rock Radio Friendly Unit Shifter series for Mishka have become iPod staples praised by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and the Chicago Reader, who call Nick "tastemaking royalty who can break an act singlehandedly." And now the man's own releases like "Bizness" and the upcoming Smoke Machine album apply that same finely tuned ear and party rocking pedigree to original tunes.
Hey, it's all in a day's work…
Another Party Fam
Say No More.

Trackademicks is a buzzing MC and producer from the Bay (Alameda, CA to be exact) who’s spent the past few years crafting standout tracks for everyone from Mistah FAB to J*Davey to Kid Sister to Phonte of Little Brother. The stylistic diversity of those in-demand productions is magnified tenfold in his own music – Track takes the energy of hyphy and the bump of classic Bay rap, mixes it with the smoothed-out sonics of vintage pop and r&b, and ties it all together with a crazy ear for melodies and a willingness to experiment, creating a new, wholly original Cali sound in the process.
There’s nowhere in the world quite like Oakland, and there’s no one making music quite like L-Deez. Lamborghini Ferarri is his debut EP, featuring three wildly catchy tracks laced with curbside color commentary and a classic ‘80s rap vibe we haven’t felt in years. But don’t get it twisted, Lamborghini Ferrari is no time machine. With longtime FG fam Trackademicks providing the soundtrack, this EP hits a new sweet spot somewhere between Too $hort’s trunk tales, hyphy’s wild style, and the futuristic club sounds of today. Welcome to The Town, like you’ve never heard it before!
