HIP HOP FIND: GOLD

GXLD - GOLD

All that glitches is not GOLD.

Been a while since we did a Hip Hop Find and while this leans more towards the “electronic” music umbrella, we reckon we can fit it under the hip hop one. The producer in question is GOLD and he comes from – you guessed it – LA. When it comes to electronic beat music, LA is to that sub-culture what Motown was to soul in the 50s-70s and GOLD fits in with the others just fine. There’s a fine mix of ambient and percussive elements that will keep you chilled but tuned into what you’re hearing. It’s quite something.

Stream his latest beat tape GXLD below and some of his tracks on Soundcloud below that.
