GoldLink’s sound is densely weighted with shimmering polyrhythmic sounds, constructed with formidable producers like Kaytranada, Lakim and Louie Lastic. His sound blends nostalgic cuts of 90s hip-hop and R&B and the area’s natural go-go heritage with transcending circadian drops of EDM and Afro-Caribbean drum patterns. GoldLink’s raps are calculated, tackling them with a roller-coaster delivery, with a distinct voice and unmeasurable cadence. His latest release, And After That, We Didn't Talk was incredibly well received due to its above par production, poignant and infectious lyrics all delivered through GoldLink's captivating style. Somewhere in between Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper, GoldLink is the type of rapper Childish Gambino hoped to be. Only 33 minutes long And After That, We Didn’t Talk although concise is incredibly effective. Recognizing this, Chris McClenney recently dropped an official remix to GoldLink's - "Dark Skin Women" off this recent release. Listen to the well put together remix below.
GoldLink who kicks off his US Tour next week at LA's Fonda after just getting back from Australia's Laneway festival is also taking Chris on a few east coast dates with one being at their hometown venue the 930club. GoldLink will be coming through the Mitten, performing at POPULUX in Detroit on March 11th. It’s definitely not a show to miss. We’ll see you there.
