New Artist: Goldroom

April 9th, 2013: As seen on BitCandy (PDF)

Riding a coming-of-age chillwave curve finer than your high school sweetheart’s hip on a forever hula-hoop twirl, budding LA producer Goldroom, real name Josh Legg, blew up SoundCloud with a gleaming Highway 1 sunset synth dream number paying homage to the oft overlooked age of innocence by that bastard 16 with its license and sweetness, “Fifteen.” Australian starlet Chela is on vocal duties, and summer 2012 just wouldn’t have been the same without its carefree, windblown best new artist kiss of a chorus: “We were only fifteen/floating through the slipstream.”

Legg has since revealed a few respectable notches in his belt, dropping his first EP, Angeles, traveling the world via turntables and tearing up the remix circuit with artists from Atlas Genius to Niki & The Dove, the pulsating latter of which has racked up over four-million hits on the ‘Tube. But for a taste of the originally arranged chillwave future 2013 jam, chew into fellow Angeles cut “Sweetness Alive” percolating a bit more uptempo and funk, lathered with “the luxury of you and I” dual harmonies of Swedish twins Saint Lou Lou, and be one with the blurring of palm tree keys whirling by.
