Eora / Sydney Reggae and Dancehall artist Gold Fang shares his charismatic debut double single project Light It, out via NLV Records.
Light It marks the debut release from Gold Fang and follows his recent collaboration with rapper Big Skeez on their sonic single ‘Where Yuh From’, which earned significant praise from outlets including Acclaim for their “melting pot of style”, hailed as “energy raising” by Purple Sneakers and “exhilarating, invigorating and relentless” by MTV amongst radio support from triple j, triple j Unearthed and FBi Radio.
Gold Fang continues to follow this path of the energy-filled trajectory in Light It, serving up an authentic charisma that refuses to place limits on genre. Produced by Tom Elliot and Peter Sabbagh of Korky Buchek, the EP is Gold Fang’s first solo debut and is an apt exploration into the world of Gold Fang and a sound that is fleshed out from influences including Damian Marley and André 3000.
Of the release, Gold Fang shares “My goal is to show that even though I’m so far from home, I’m tapped in with my culture and my roots and I know myself. I want people to not be scared to explore things other than rap or rock and to get away from the mainstream. I want people to see that you can live in Australia and be successful in reggae. You can touch people with a different genre that they’re not used to”
The first track, ‘Light It’ touches on life growing up in Trinidad, as Gold Fang taps into his cultural roots and builds on an exclusive and infectious verse over a Korky Buchek-produced instrumental. Continuing down the lane of reggae-influenced sound, ‘Keep Dem’ was born out of a studio freestyling session, with a result that marries anthemic vocals with a heavy bassline to create a track that is quintessentially Gold Fang.
