Nick Catchdubs Presents: Danny Brown & Sleigh Bells - "Brown Bells EP" (Terminal 5 x 2)

Fool's Gold Records co-founder and sometimes club-ready DJ Nick Catchdubs recently took it upon himself to conjure up a Danny Brown/Sleigh Bells mash-up couplet, dubbed Brown Bells. It's in honor of the slightly odd pairing's 2 upcoming gigs at Terminal 5 (New York), November 22-23rd. While I'm not really the biggest mash-up champion, unless it's either Girl Talk of Danger Mouse, Catchdubs did it right; releasing a 2-track EP complete with cleverly-titled "Diggin' Demons" & "Grown Up Rivals," which sound more like a tried-and-true in-studio collaboration! Nick Catchdubs of course left in plenty of recognizable fragments from "Dip/Demons" (Diplo Remix) and "Grown Up/Bitter Rivals." When you consider Danny Brown's guest-list of fairly unexpected collaborations on his recently-released OLD album (ie: Purity Ring, Charli XCX, BADBADNOTGOOD, etc.), an anthemic full-fledged Sleigh Bells team-up doesn't seem all that unlikely. The Nick Catchdubs-selected Sleigh Bells tracks "Demons" and "Bitter Rivals" are culled from their 2 back-to-back marathon albums, Reign of Terror and Bitter Rivals (2012-13). AS a matter of fact, Potholes In My Blog notes that tickets are still available for Saturday's Terminal 5 show, which should start around 9:00pm Nov. 23rd.
