Artist of the Week: Goldroom
Just so you know where he hails from: Josh Legg was formerly part of the synthpop trio Night Waves, names Tom Petty and 80ies pop music as his biggest influences and said in an interview with Bouncebug: "You’re not going to hear any wobbles from Goldroom." This solo-project of his started off with a song called "Morgan's Bay".
Since then, he has gained some major traction and remixed some great artists like Gigamesh, Penguin Prison or aforementioned Poolside. He did his best work on "Mother Protect" by Niki & The Dove though - maybe because Malin Dahlström's voice is a bit harder than the other vocalists he was confronted with or worked for so far, and it has driven him to give this remix a heavier beat. It is still on the pop side of dance, mind you. Listen and enjoy.
