Strangelove - Good As Gold


With his fourth EP on Smile Recordings, Strangelove takes it to a new level. While the three previous gems had us convinced his trip was completely about warm and deep love for classic clubhouse, this one goes 3D: deeper, dirtier and darker.

This track - Good as Gold - thrives on a mesmerizing technorhythm, layered with some seductive rapping. Yes, indeed, we said rapping. Whatever the MC’s trying to convince the girl to do, our guess is it’s something really nasty and his pleeding will have the desired effect. If not before, then after the acid drops (and boy, does it ever…). The whole thing gets rounded up perfectly by letting some southern brightness shine through a crack in the curtains at exactly the right moment.
