Midas.Gold drops another banger with ‘Poppin’
It’s only been a few months since we last heard from him, but hip-hop’s finest, MIDAS.GOLD, is back with ‘Poppin’ – an upbeat and tongue-in-cheek trap banger. Alongside the single comes the news of shows in Sydney and Melbourne next year, as well as his signing to the legendary 123 Agency.
Where Midas‘ last single ‘Location’ saw him covering heavier ground in sound and theme, ‘Poppin’ is exactly what it says on the tin – an upbeat and playful jam full of the solid hooks and charismatic flow we’ve come to expect.
Produced alongside frequent collaborator Jangus, the instrumental is bright and snappy, with the distinctive 808 snare in full force. Multi-tracked vocals muse on self-improvement and living in the moment among jazzy guitar licks that give the track a certain relaxed edge we’ve yet to see from Midas. With a minimal mix he makes the most of it, expanding on his trademark, full-on trap sounds, while still keeping it fresh by incorporating a few new elements.
‘Poppin’ is an infectiously upbeat number, and one that’s sure to be the soundtrack to countless summer days. With each track, Midas.Gold is getting better and better, and his signing with 123 Agency ensures more magic in the future. In the meantime, you can catch him on his single tour in February, with more dates to be announced.
