NICK CATCHDUBS Co-founder, Fool’s Gold Records

Spearheading the confluence of hip-hop and electronic music, Brooklyn’s Fool’s Gold Records stands as the leading tastemaker of genre-bending artists, founded by DJs and close friends A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. “Fool’s Gold has been doing the same thing for seven years,” explained Catchdubs, who acts as A&R for the label, “which is basically releasing the music that our friends make and reflecting the artistic community that A-Trak and I are a part of.” And the overall purpose, too, stands unchanged: “We always wanted to be successful and we wanted to be smart and savvy about our business, but the goal is less about purely making a profit and more about capturing this art that is around us, for posterity—making products that we are proud of.”
