GoldLink most recently released his debut studio album At What Cost. This ambitious and funky album features artists Kaytranada, Brent Faiyaz, Wale, and many more. GoldLink’s North American and European At What Cost Tour begins this month in Long Beach, CA, where he will perform at the Queen Mary’s Tropicalia Festival.

With their upbeat, synth-pop tracks, courtship. is sure to please fans of bands MGMT and STRFKR.

Pham, born Dawid Phan Ngoc, is a DJ, artist, and producer from Poland. His first EP, Movements, came out in 2016, and featured hip-hop artists Yung Fusion and Lox Chatterbox. Pham’s most popular single, also entitled “Movements,” has now reached over 25 million listens on Spotify. His newest EP Ugly is a five-track collaboration with singer Austin Paul. With its smooth electric guitar and mysterious baseline beats, “Ugly” has a slower hip-hop vibe. Pham then continued on tour with Louis the Child and Vanic, two music acts that have contributed much to the growing future-bass genre.
