What happens when two quickly-emerging artists team up? You get a track with some rythmically-incled Goldlink lyrics over majestically-chill ZHU production that goes by the name of “Paradise Awaits Part 2″.
Both ZHU and Goldlink have been making some major moves recently, from ZHU getting an entire generation “Faded” and having them go crazy over his identity, to Goldlink landing his name on bills such as MoMa PS1 and Trillectro. This duo is definitely a dynamic one, and the proof is in the pudding…if that pudding was a dark, future bounce track.
Plus, you know, when you have Goldlink quoting TuPac and some thong song references in the mix, it’s bound to be a great track.
