Everything coming out from Neon Gold Records nowadays is a hit. HAIM, Icona Pop, The Knocks, you name it. NGR Calls it a fusion of Empire of the Sun and Passion Pit. I think those folks are forgetting a flavor of their own mix: St. Lucia. “Golden” has that unwavering glaze of 80’s tunes with vocals that’ll make old-time speakers pop out smoke.
I’m a huge fan of Noah Breakfast, formerly known as Xaphoon Jones and duo to Chiddy Bang. He’s consistently put out some great work with Ellie Goulding, Big Sean, and a few other big names. Noah even produced part of Wet’s debut EP and now he’s set up for a huge year as a solo producer. Wet became one of the biggest hits in 2013 along with St. Lucia and Haim, all Neon Gold Records artists. Whatever NGR’s feeding them, let’s share that juice around to some more artists.
