Producer Louie Lastic’s pulsating electro-blend of samples, warbling bass and snare flurries support a growingly invincible GoldLink in the rapper’s newest conquest, “Planet Paradise”. Victorious and ever-elastic, GL has failed to disappoint me even once since his name blipped up on my radar late last summer due to genre-crossing backdrops and melodic, off-kilter deliveries. It’s a true art form to balance accessibility and joyful listening with indisputable talent – GoldLink walks (or skips and bounces around, rather) that line with apparent ease.
The growth has been tremendous, the escalating hype is well-deserved and Apr. 1 is the date to look forward to, with the GoldLink’s debut project The God Complex dropping at that date.
Stream “Planet Paradise” below. The God Complex drops Apr. 1; don’t forget to tell your squad.
