It'a always a good day to celebrate the UK music scene. Surely, we're doing that pretty often with electronic artists from places like Brixton, and with this artist today, from Birmingham, the nation's second largest city. Dominic Hammonds, known to fans as The Golden Boy, is an artist keeping the city on the UK house music map. His 2017 has been marked with releases from Glasgow Underground, Lee Foss's Emerald City, Nervous Records, and this week, on Danny Howard's Nothing Else Matters.
Nothing Else Matters has claimed its space in the dance scene as a platform that supports artists on the rise, and their series Nothing Else Matters releases EPs showcasing such artists and their new music. Vol 2 of this series is out this Friday, and will feature The Golden Boy's latest, named "Blah Blah Shake." Using a vintage hip hop sample, the record breathes peak energy and groove, with the chopped and screwed sample almost sounding a little "Bad and Boujee" as it swirls down through the ebbs and flows of the house rabbit hole. You can get lost in "Blah Blah Shake" here ahead of its release.
