Golden Features, a mysterious figure at first, recently revealed his identity in a interview with Thump. Within dropping his debut EP “Golden Features“, the producer quickly gained some recognition after Triple J, a radio station in Australia, aired some of his tracks in February. Porter Robinson supported the EP quickly after. Gaining thousands of views within days people started wondering just who is this anonymous producer, and is he new?
Turns out he is none other than Tom Stell, an Australian producer from the duo Kyro & Bomber, making big room house. “To be honest with you, I didn’t love it anymore. I wasn’t enjoying it”, Stell stated in the interview, “I felt like I was forcing something. That I was just trying to fit into what everyone else was doing, because it seemed like the easy option.” Coming from a history “hip hop guys like MF Doom” and dance house influences like Daft Punk and the Chemical Brothers, Stell was looking for more of his own style of music that can stand out on its own.
“The whole idea of the Golden Features project is to turn myself into an artist that people actually go to see for their own music.” explaining further “I don’t want people to be hung up on the anonymity thing because, in my mind, it’s not important. It’s the music”. A real idea that gives a breath of fresh air to the EDM scene as more producers are getting more creative and moving away from the same old, same structured “big room house” music and into whatever they want!
Golden Features is set to play at HARDstraylia, Hard‘s Debut Australian tour ran by Destructo.
