Tchami can do no wrong at this point. The only issue I have is that Tchami keeps holding out on his “Gamngster’s Paradise” bootleg played a million times at his shows. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Take a listen to a preview via DJ Snake’s BBC Radio 1 essential mix. Hit it!

Events, Hip-Hop, Review | SXSW: GoldLink at Soulection’s “Sound of Tomorrow” Showcase

Posted by on March 27, 2014

On Saturday March 15th at precisely 2:50pm in sunny Austin, Texas the young and mysterious rapper by the name of GoldLink stepped upon the stage at Barcelona. A showcase aptly titled the “Sound of Tomorrow” had a bill filled with the futuristic sounding producers on Soulection’s roster. GoldLink was neither a part of Soulection’s imprint, nor was he a producer…so as I and the numerous other audience members asked ourselves what he was doing up on stage, he slowly began to gather himself and show us why.

GoldLink’s music is best described by Chuck Allen of Way Less Effort: “Of all the new sounds that have popped up in the industry, from the soul-sucking gothic southern grime that the UK and South Florida have been dropping, to the glo’d up trap of the Chi, this new “future bounce” sound really stands out. It doesn’t throw it all the way back to boom-bap like the “New New York” ish that Pro Era has been pushing, and it isn’t on that entirely digital production tip either. It mixes the buttery grooves of 90?s R&B with classic hip-hop breaks to give it an essence of nostalgia, and then turns on its head with bouncy, forward-thinking production from the likes of Kaytranada and Ta-ku. Add that to Goldlink’s roller coaster flow that fills every pocket of the dynamic instrumentals he tackles, and suddenly your head and shoulders are bobbing and you don’t know what happened.” *1

This future-bounce movement was prevalent all the way through his performance as he went worked through his short SoundCloud catalog, spitting out his semi-viral hits such at “Creep”, “Playah”, and at-the-time-unreleased song “Planet Paradise”. I was entranced by his energetic stage presence and ability to work a crowd whom was not at all expecting to be seeing a rapper on stage.

GoldLink has remained unseen by the internet world, but with his forthcoming mixtape, The God Complex set to drop in a matter of days, I can’t imagine his face avoiding the limelight for much longer. Enjoy, GoldLink’s newest release “Planet Paradise” produced by Louie Lastic, and be sure to prepare yourself for SXSW next year, since it’s never too early to start planning!

Chill, Electronic | Alina Baraz – Paradise (Prod. by ESTA.)

Posted by on October 4, 2013


Looking for some early morning/late evening vibes? Try the homie ESTA.’s remix of breakout artist Alina Baraz’s track “Paradise.” The San Diego native took the Cashmere Cat-esque feel of the original track (which can be found HERE) and put his own, new wave spin on it. Definitely worth a listen – really a fan of the production quality on this piece.

90’s Finest newest track Paradise is a melodic house masterpiece. Almost starting off with a Romanian house feel, then building its way nicely into a synth driven melody and heavy leads. This track is already being remixed by countless producers because of its catchy melody and potential for erupting crowds.

Dubstep | TYR – Eclipse EP

Posted by on November 15, 2011

Who is TYR you ask? Well I didn’t know either until late last night. He is only 17 years old and is from sin city, Las Vegas! He dropped this 4 track EP just a few days ago, and considering he only has 150 fans on Facebook, it is no wonder no one has heard of him yet. What caught my eye, was the Paradise remix he did, being the first to make sick dubstep remix of it. His original track, Eclipse sounds awesome. Going with a drumstep style, the drop is nothing short of being a sub killer. He even got me to like Kesha haha. If you like dubstep, this EP is well worth downloading. I can’t wait to see what else this kid has in store. Make sure to show him some love on FACEBOOK and SOUNDCLOUD, he has plenty more sick tracks.
