Everybody is talking about this new rap music,” proclaims Gold Chains (a.k.a. Topher LaFata) over some dubby beats on his self-titled EP, soon to be put out by Kit Clayton’s Orthlorng Musork label. No doubt! The San Francisco mic master garnered a mention in Spin before releasing a single track. Maybe its because they had nothing to else interesting to write about that month. But more likely it’s because once the rapper lets his rhymes loose over his bass-thumping, techno-damaged beats and blends them with hip-hop, dub, and a touch of bittersweet pop, babes start dancing and people start feeling good about themselves. What does Gold Chains have to say about this?
“I’m just a normal cali punk rock kid living one day at a time trying to fill the world with beauty, love and revolution.”
Looks like he is doing a good job so far.
