Describing his hip hop heroes include the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Drake and J Cole, also taking inspiration from grime greats like Kano, Ghetts and Skepta. Starting out freestyling with friends, he has since developed his own formidable style merging speedy flows and vivid lyricism.
His new self-produced EP is a hi-octane thrill ride that blurs elements of hip hop, grime and electronica. ‘TLC’ is the lead single, which sees Humor spitting energetically over a murky backdrop of squelchy synths and punchy 808s.
Listen to TLC here:
This track is the kind of track, you would hear at a grime rave with a bottle of Grey Goose or Wray and Nephews…
Having already released a 12” on Ambivalent’s new Valence imprint and featured on the latest Innervisions ‘Secret Weapons’ compilation this year, GoldFFinch now return to Tiga’s Turbo Recordings with their new EP, ‘Unworthy’.
Three tracks of tight, lean Techno that ranges from the ominous title track, all pulsing tones and drones and swirling arpeggios, through to the claustrophobic sub-aquatic Techno of ‘Brother’ and onto the martial kick drums and discordant bleeps of ‘Layers’. Meanwhile on the remix front, Sunju Hargun, fresh off his collab with Forrest on Twin Turbo, and Crosstown’s Fur Coat provide the big room reinforcements with new versions of ‘Unworthy’.
Having released critically acclaimed music on some of the best underground House and Techno labels around, including Numbers, Dirtybird, Black Butter, Innervisions and Turbo, GoldFFinch have proven themselves to be more than worthy to carry on the torch of Belgium’s rich history of electronic music.
