#2129 – THE GOLDEN BOY – TRAUMA / 8BIT
The Golden Boy follows up his white hot release on Emerald City with this much loved two tracker for us. “Trauma” kicks things off and its an absolute belter. If you are a fan of the new heavyweight progressive sound of Hot Since 82 or OC & Verde then this is a must for you. And don’t worry, yes it has pretty arpeggios and feel-good bass changes but it is absolutely not some chin-stroking noodles-fest that will have your dance floor heading straight for the boredom bar. Straight up fire.
Get it now @ BEATPORT
If you haven’t embraced the prog yet then don’t worry, there’s a tech-house banger on the flip. “8 Bit” is kinda like the record label of the same name, but with added bounce. You can get this @ TRAXSOURCE & BEATPORT
