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. His vocabulary and his unmistakable voice alone propels Gold Fang far in front of the local space, most notably heralded by triple j (Australia’s national youth broadcaster) as “versatile yet unmistakable, able to seamlessly imbue any genre that he touches with a sonic fingerprint that is as distinctive as it is powerful. It is his undeniable presence and charisma that has caused Gold Fang to be earmarked as one-to-watch.”
March 2023 saw Fang release his debut mixtape, SMOOVE KILLA, introducing the international music industry to Gold Fang’s world. 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’.
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.
