Hailing from Sydney, Trinidadian born Gold Fang moves effortlessly between Dancehall, Reggae, Hip-Hop, R&B and Soul. Flying the flag for Caribbean music in Australia, Gold Fang’s magnetism leaves a mark.
Since the release of his 2023 debut mixtape SMOOVE KILLA, Gold Fang has steadily cemented his position at the forefront of the thriving Afro-Caribbean space. With nods to his Caribbean culture and heritage pulled into every corner of his expansive musical palette, the 15 track project explores his identity, culture, talent and community and his two distinct sides – one more emotive and romantic, and the other more street ready and grungy. SMOOVE KILLA generated 85,000 Spotify streams within the first week of its release and was named FBi Radio’s ‘Album of the Week.’
With the same rebellious spirit and razor sharp bars, Gold Fang swiftly returned with a string of singles throughout late 2023. The first of these was UK grime and reggae hybrids ‘Badness Issa’ Habit’ and ‘Pull It Up,’ both of which were debuted across a string of festival performances.
His most recent release, ‘Move Like This’ explores a smoother side to his reggae sound, balancing the groove-driven impulses of Anderson .Paak with the high gloss of Bad Bunny.
Celebrating momentum as a touring artist, he has supported international heavy-hitters Lil Nas X, Fire Boy DML and J Balvin, play iconic festivals including SXSW Sydney, Field Day, Splendour in the Grass, Promiseland and Beyond The Valley, co-headline shows across New Zealand and Australia with JessB and capped off 2023 with a string of shows with Safia. Gold Fang has also landed multiple brand partnerships and sync placements with Adidas, McDonalds, JD Sports and Champion.
Gold Fang is motivated to put his country on the map, whilst paving the way for a new generation of young, Black and powerful Australian artists. There is truly only one Gold Fang, and now he is ready to share it with the world.
