Bipolar Sunshine ft. GoldLink - Future (Part 1)

No Comments »

Bipolar Sunshine continues to craft a soulful style that comes as a breath of fresh air. The UK musician continues his highly successful 2014 campaign as he recruits upstart rapper GoldLink, who is having arguably having an even more successful year, for his latest release. "Future (Part 1)" serves as the latest release off Bipolar Sunshine's forthcoming debut album. 

 The steady synth-laden record provides a perfect backdrop for GoldLink's sporadic flow and Bipolar Sunshine's sensual crooning. I can imagine this getting an ample amount of plays this coming weekend in dimly lit bars and clubs throughout the world. I brought it back four times and couldn't stop grooving by myself in my room.

Seattle’s Nacho Picasso is one of the more promising artists coming out of the Northwest. A Bandcamp legend and frequent collaborator with production duo Blue Sky Black Death, Picasso has one of the more unique style’s in the oversaturated market that is in the hip hop industry. From his drug and sex-laden rhymes to his quirky movie references which often include cult classics such as Pee-Wee Herman. 

 Picasso has been hard at work dropping several captivating projects and singles over the past few years. He has garnered a passionate fan base that can’t seem to get enough Nacho! His latest venture comes in the form of a power move to Harry Fraud’s SRFSCHL label, which also includes some promising New Yorker’s in Adrian Lau, Eddie B, and The Kid Daytona. Nacho Picasso’s first release under the New York-based label comes in the form of the Harry Fraud produced “In The Trump” which feels as if it’s from an 80s action flick. I can see Nacho rapping as he slides across the front of his cop car only to blow a line before starting the car up and burning rubber on the way to go catch some bad guys.

Lamar effortlessly spazzes and puts his lyrical prowess on display.
