GoldLink pulls me in each time I see him live. My first time hearing him was when he dropped “Crew,” then I found out his was from DC, watched the video for “Crew” and literally fell in love with his sound. GoldLink reminds me of an onion, because of his many layers (but, minus the smell).
During his set for Roots Picnic, GoldLink asked the crowd for one thing: to simply have fun and dance to his music, which isn’t hard to do cause he’s a vibe. He performed a few songs prior to being signed such as Dark Skinned Woman and also performed songs from his latest album, At What Cost.
Towards the end of GoldLink’s set of course he performed “Crew” featuring Shy Glizzy and Brent Faiyaz but, his official DJ, DJ Kidd Marvel played a unreleased track for the crowd.
