– Goldroom Live @ Brooklyn Bowl
Spring gets a little help from The Knocks in bringing the world back to life as their new remix for Goldroom‘s, “Only You Can Show Me,” illuminates the world with it’s babbling basslines and syncopated synth chords, taking your BPM up to that of its own. An essential for any spring time playlist, this track is sure to liven up your days at the pool, parties on the lawn, as well as any celebration you have planned in the coming warmed-up months.
Oh how I would love to hear Goldroom’s latest track, “Only You Can Show Me”, at Coachella this year. His latest song has disco festival vibes written all over it. Nothing would please me more than walking into the Sahara Tent as the sun is going down and hearing this tune radiating through the crowd. With it’s sweet, airy vocals (courtesy of Mereki), jammin’ percussion and phenomenal disco-meets-big-room breakdown, “Only You Can Show Me” would drive any festival wild.
While Mr. Josh Legg + Co. won’t be playing Coachella this year (we’ll have to leave it up to the DJs at Coachella to play this song), you can still check out Goldroom’s live show happening now through the end of April in the U.S. and Canada.
“Only You Can Show Me” is out NOW.
Our good buds over at Solé Bicycles have released another mix this month from the quickly growing and ever entertaining series entitled the ‘fixtapes’. This month we have none other than GDD favorite & Los Angeles’s golden boy, Goldroom. This sultry smooth mix will have u feeling all warm and giddy inside. Take a musical mosaic journey through time & space- We’ll see you on the other side.
If there’s one thing you can say about Goldroom’s remixes, it’s that he always fully understands the emotional content of the song of the artist he is remixing and always seems to manage to take that emotion to a higher level. Whether it’s the noirish pridefulness he brought to Pat Lok’s “No Shame” or the added sexiness & solemnity he gave to Lancelot’s “We Can Dance”, Goldroom seems to value the listener’s mental state more than its physical one. It’s not that his remixes won’t make you dance. They’ll certainly make you dance but they’ll also make you dig a little deeper emotionally.
Goldroom’s latest remix of “You (Ha Ha Ha)” by UK singer/raver/dancer Charli XCX is another emotionally packed tune dealing with the heaviness of heartache. It’s an emotional heartbreaker with lots of groove.
Out February 10th via Asylum Records.
Nobody in dance music transports their listeners to another place like our man Goldroom does. On the doorstep of Winter on the rainiest of days, the sounds of Goldroom have a way helping listeners escape to a brighter place filled with miles of melody and lush, rhythmic landscapes.
Goldroom’s new tune “Sweetness Alive” is another smooth escape to a bright, shiny place. The perfectly titled tune is filled with euphoric vibes & sweet, dreamy vocals courtesy of SLL (formerly Saint Lou Lou).
“Sweetness Alive” is out NOW. Grab this delectable ditty HERE and float away to another place.
Our man Josh Legg, aka Goldroom, is back with another fantastic remix, this time of Australian alterna-rockers Atlas Genius. Goldroom’s remix of “Back Seat” is a piece of tropical new wave nostalgia that would have fit in well on MTV’s alternative show 120 Minutes circa the mid to late-80s. Of course to be on the show, there would have to have been an accompanying video. I’m picturing something reminiscent of “Rio” by Duran Duran: A yacht, the Caribbean, white suits and for absolutely no explainable reason, body-painted vixens.

CMJ rolled through town last weekend and we got a taste of almost everything the city-wide festival had to offer. However, one showcase in particular rose above the others in a party I soon won’t forget….
