GoldLink Premieres New Video “Fall In Love” feat. Ciscero

Squaaash Club/RCA Records rapper/singer GoldLink releases today his new video for his Kaytranada and BadBadNotGood-produced single “Fall in Love” ft. Ciscero. The video features a retro-afro-centric style with a modern twist, resonating a 70’s vibe. The celebratory unique visual, which serves as the first performance by GoldLink in one of his videos, is directed and produced by Shomi Patwary.

The critically acclaimed track “Fall in Love” currently has over 3.1 million streams on Spotify. Pigeons and Planes stated that the song “feels like it could have fit right in at the end of the disco era [with] a modern balance to this lovable track,” while Paper calls the song “a delightful, effervescent new groove.”

Washington D.C. native GoldLink has been establishing himself as a major force in music since the release of his popular 2014 debut mixtape The God Complex. As a follow up to his debut, the rapper/singer released his first LP And After That We Didn’t Talk in 2015. The album featured his hit single “Dance on Me,” which peaked at #4 on Billboard’s Twitter Emerging Artists chart. He has been critically reviewed and featured by various outlets such as Billboard, NPR, Pitchfork, SPIN, Complex, Vibe and XXL as a part of their 2015 Freshman Class. Additionally, Noisey stated that “GoldLink is on the cusp of serious fame” and Pigeons and Planes coined him “one of the hottest names in music right now.” GoldLink took over the festival scene this summer with electrifying performances at Day N Night in California, Trillectro in D.C., Central Park SummerStage in New York City and AFROPUNK in London and will continue his festival run in Australia with performances at Beyond the Valley on December 28th and Origin NYE on December 31st.

Last Friday, Team Epiphany and Complex Media continued #SUMMERFRIDAYS – an annual event series that brings together NYC’s most influential tastemakers – with the second activation of the summer, The Sleepover.
 
Aptly named, ‘The Sleepover’ was a pajama party for adults that brought back all the nostalgia of the classic 90’s house-party. Held in Brooklyn at the cornerstone nightlife venue Kinfolk, partygoers enjoyed custom-themed cocktails provided by Avion as guests took pictures with  The Sleepover’s mascot, a life-sized teddy bear. #SUMMERFRIDAYS resident DJ, DJ Wonder provided the mix for the evening – which will be available every week here, powered by JBL Audio

Midway through the event, Team Epiphany Founder and Managing Partner Coltrane Curtis introduced two of today’s hottest up-and-coming hip-hop artist –as GoldLink and Masego took the stage to perform.

One of the most talented emerging artist today, Masego brought his live instrumentation (saxophone) and unique TrapHouse Jazz melodies to the stage with an upbeat performance of his stand out singles “Seniorita”, “Girls That Dance” and “Bounce”

Following Masego’s set, Soulection recording artist and 2015 XXL Freshman GoldLink performed his hits “Spectrum”, “Dance On Me” and “Late Night” featuring Masego! 
 
This finale  of this year’s #SUMMERFRIDAYS events series will take place this Friday at a Williamsburg hotspot where 10 of NYC’s most influential brands, restaurants and companies will compete to have the highest average score in a charity bowling competition. The winning team will have money donated to the Harold Hunter Foundation in their name. Teams will include: Pintrill, Jason Mark, Mighty Healthy, Sweetchick, Greats, Married to the Mob and more. The event will also include a special guest DJ and amazing eats provided by Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken.
 

Originally launched in 2009, the series was rebranded in June 2012 as #SUMMERFRIDAYS, and has since become the go-to event for New Yorkers in-the-know.
