“When it comes to DJing, Nick Catchdubs is a regular Mr Do-It-All” - XXL Magazine
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Nick Catchdubs has been dropping his signature club sets (hip hop, electro, rock and more, with an emphasis on new music and original remixes) around the globe for the past six years. It’s not a kitchen sink approach to DJing, just lots of different music mixed well, rocking any kind of party you could think of.
Equally at home headlining a sweaty glowstick rave or hyping up a packed rap showcase, Nick has shared stages with the likes of Ghostface, Clipse, MIA, Rihanna and Sean Paul, performed at Lollapalooza, Electric Daisy Carnival, and the SXSW, WMC and CMJ festivals, and played countless solo shows (praised by Nylon as “guaranteed to get people dancing”) throughout the US, Canada and overseas.
Nick’s expertly composed mixtapes (including Wale’s award winning Mixtape About Nothing, the alternative rock Radio Friendly Unit Shifter series for cult clothing brand Mishka, and the Mark Ronson collaboration Radio Radio) have the Chicago Reader calling him “tastemaking royalty who can break an act single-handedly.” On the production side, his remixes and re-edits are favorites of blogs and fellow club DJs alike, getting play everywhere from college radio to commercial stations like Power 106 in Los Angeles.
As co-founder of the beloved Fool’s Gold record label with A-Trak (named an “indie innovator” by Billboard), Nick has helped launch the careers of artists like Kid Sister and Kid Cudi while curating steady releases of only the best in hand-picked new music. He was featured with the Fool’s Gold family in Bushmills’ “Since Way Back” ad campaign on giant billboards, wall posters and subway ads throughout the NYC metro area.
Before starting the label, Nick also served as associate editor at The FADER Magazine, holding down the mag’s radio show “The Let Out” on East Village Radio while writing features and cover stories on everyone from Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg to Jenny Lewis, Soca star Machel Montano and the Chicago juke scene.
