Former FADER editor/Fool’s Gold co-founder, phenomenal DJ and producer and general pop culture fiend Nick Catchdubs just released “Bizness,” a track that features Bay Area luminaries IAMSU! and Jay Ant dropping breathless, elastic verses over a beat that it’s tempting to describe as 8-bit, but is actually closer to the sound that you hear when you walk into one of those old Mall video arcades that don’t really exist anymore. Which is to say, it sounds like the past’s broken vision of the future, bizarre but just familiar enough, too. Watch the video, directed by Scott Jacobson, above, and stream the track, along with remixes from Astronomar and ETC! ETC!, below. “Bizness” is from Catchdubs’ upcoming debut LP Smoke Machine, out on Fool’s Gold at some point in the hopefully not too distant future.
