KAYTRANADA – 99.9%

Kaytranada’s new album ‘99.9%’ is, as expected, fucking brilliant.  Singles ‘Bus Ride‘ and ‘Glowed Up‘, hinted at what was in store, but the fifteen track collection even surpasses what we’ve come to expect from the Canadian producer.  With features from Vic Mensa, BadBadNotGood, Anderson .Paak, GoldLink and even Craig David, ‘99.9%’ is incredibly varied but consistently…

GOLDLINK X KOJEY RADICAL – PINK, BLUE, ORANGE [VIDEO]

GoldLink kicks off 2016 with a visual project related to his excellent debut album ‘And After That, We Didn’t Talk’.  The theme of past relationships was central to the album, turning the LP into a concept piece, and these ‘Pink’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Orange’ vignettes, created in collaboration with directors Rubberband and UK poet Kojey Radical,…

GOLDLINK – AND AFTER THAT, WE DIDN’T TALK

GoldLink’s debut album ‘And After That, We Didn’t Talk’, arrived a week early via Soulection.  We guess he just couldn’t wait any longer, and from the tracks he shared in the build-up to the LP drop, neither could we.

GOLDLINK – DARK-SKINNED WOMEN

GoldLink premiered ‘Dark-Skinned Women’, another track from his album ‘After That, We Didn’t Talk’ on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’. Like ‘Unique’, GoldLink still has the ladies on his mind on this one, and with a melodic beat and an infectious hook that showcases his vocal talents, he once…

GOLDLINK – UNIQUE [FT. ANDERSON .PAAK]

Following his latest single ‘Spectrum’, GoldLink teams up with Anderson .Paak to sweet talk a special someone over a dance floor ready groove. With its drums and smooth synths, ‘Unique’ is a blend of Disco, House and Hip Hop that’ll make you forget that Winter is upon us. The track [taken from forthcoming album ‘After That,…

MR CARMACK – WHITE EP

Mr Carmack’s ‘White EP’ has been in the works for a while, but until it dropped last night the Mad Decent producer has been cagey concerning the details.  The five track project features remixes of Groove Armada, GoldLink and Vic Mensa, each with the Hawaiian beatmaker’s unique stamp.  Admittedly, we did have our heart set on…
