C. Gold is the new smashing artist from Sweden that, with his debut single ‘’Nobody feat. Fancy Dave’’, shows that he is here to stay! It’s not very often an artist makes an entrance as strong as C. Golds.
Some artists take years to figure out their sound and style, but listening to ‘’Nobody’’ and seeing the artwork makes C. Gold’s debut crystal clear and easy to love! Worth to know is that he does it all completely independent.
Nobody Feat. Fancy Dave is a groovy electronic pop song with new thinking beats and a lyric that tells the struggle of being a young creator in the most obvious way. When you’re young and working hard to reach your dreams, it can feel like a long way till you’ll see any gold. But listening to C.Gold will guaranteed be the most valuable thing you’ve done in a long time!
London-based Scandinavian newcomer Shaqdi is bringing a fresh, soulful sound to R&B that can’t quite be categorised, yet is welcomingly familiar – drawing influences from the American urban scene including artists like Smino, Masego & Xavier Omar.
Growing up in small town in Sweden, music was instilled in Shaqdi at a young age by her mother, who was a classical pianist. She spent her childhood learning both piano and violin from age four, leading her to make a move to Stockholm in her adult life where she studied music at Kulturama as a means to develop her songwriting and production.
It wasn’t until a chance meeting in Barcelona with London producer and filmmaker Zagor where she found new direction. Together the two pushed both her music and creative image to new levels. “I needed time to find my voice and develop my sound. Today I am a strong and proud woman. I know what I’m doing, and I know what I want, and I’m ready to let people in and listen to what I wanna say with my music.” Shaqdi plans to release a number of singles alongside creatively authentic videos filmed with her mates around East London, giving a first hand look into the life and lyrical meaning of who she is. The five track ‘Colorless’ EP is set to be released in full in May.
