Golden Vessel feat. Elkkle, E^ST & Duckwrth – ‘Bigbright’
Good news, everyone – we’ve made it an entire week as a website on the internet! To celebrate, please allow me to welcome you to our latest playlist and its equally tremendous latest addition.
Introducing all the bops of all the days, a playlist to which we’ll be adding one new bop each and every day until either music stops being good or we just forget ever so slightly. If you’ve been keeping up-to-date with our Instagram story then you’ll already have a little head start, so perhaps jump on over there and give us a follow so you can be the first to hear what’s new.
Today’s entry comes courtesy of a new name dream team: walrus-voiced Australian producer Golden Vessel, his silky smooth regular collaborator Elkkle, California’s ever-burgeoning hip-hop funksmith Duckwrth, and E^ST, whose wickedly serene vocals are sufficiently good for us to refer to her stage name without excessively mocking its caret. The result is – for lack of a better analogy – something like Bloc Party’s ‘This Modern Love’ for 2018 if all you really lifted was the title, but what a lift it would be.
From its flittering percussion and bulbous bass warmth to its tender delivery and outrageously tacky visuals, pretty much everything about ‘Bigbright’ feels just as special as the person/object/thing they’re all waxing so millennially lyrically about. Bonus points go to Mr. Vessel for his moves, which I’m pretty sure are the sort of awkward uncle-like gyrations I’ve been lulled into plenty of times whilst lost in its hazy glow.
