:: GoldLink ::
To call GoldLink an aspiring rapper would not do him justice. The DMV-bred emcee accrued over three million plays on his Soundcloud and captured the attention of an entire industry with the first project he ever released. GoldLink’s sound doesn’t throw it all the way back to the boom-bap, New York style, nor is it entirely a product of digital production. Instead, the music mixes the buttery grooves of 90’s R&B with classic hip-hop breaks to give it an essence of nostalgia, and then turns on its head with bouncy, forward-thinking production style led by the likes of Ta-Ku and Kaytranda. Add that to GoldLink’s ability to fill every pocket of the dynamic instrumentals he tackles with a roller-coaster delivery, and suddenly your head is bobbing to the self-proclaimed “future-bounce” genre.*
:: Hustle and Drone::
Hustle and Drone formed in early 2012 when keyboardist Ryan Neighbors parted ways with his former band (Portugal. The Man) and began collaborating with long-time friend Kirk Ohnstad (Hello Electric). The band released their debut EP in the summer of 2012 which blends electronic beats with 80's synthesizers, driving bass, and vocal pop melodies. Hustle and Drone has completed their debut full-length "HOLYLAND", to be released 9/2/14
