You get the feeling GoldLink was keeping this one in his back pocket. With one week to go before the release of his debut EP The God Complex, “Planet Paradise” is the kind of breakneck, high-energy track that’s going to turn heads just as the project comes to fruition.
GoldLink attacks the Louie Lastic beat with a relentless ferocity akin to what Kendrick Lamar did to “Rigamortis.” Except instead of harmonic horns we get an organ flipped to sound like alien transmissions and bassy wubs usually reserved for dubstep. GoldLink fires off a couple rapid fire verses with an infectious hook in between. It’s one of his strongest offerings to date. Give the song a listen below and look out for a free download of The God Complex on April 1.
