One of my favorite aspects about the music industry is the ability to observe the maturation of artists. One winter, an artist like Chance the Rapper is known by only a few, yet by the next year his name is being plastered across GQ issues.
If you have not yet heard of GoldLink, don't worry, you're about to. The Washington D.C.-based rapper has garnered a following through his genre-bending sounds. If his unique voice isn't enough to peak your interest, GoldLink draws inspiration from the Go-Go music subculture that has been prevalent in D.C. for quite some time, as well as the deep-house music vibes that add the futuristic bounce to any of his tracks. Below, is his most recent track, "Vroom." A collaborative effort with Athletixx producer, Falcons (who you should also check out), has yielded another abstract song that bridges the gap between hip hop and dance music. If you like what you hear, check out our curated GoldLink playlist, which features songs from his latest project, God Complex.
