THOUGHTS: When I first looked at the list of artists that were performing at Echo Park Rising, it was overwhelming. Over 300 acts, and I surely couldn’t review each act to find out who would be worth catching. I posted a query on my personal Facebook page and a buddy of mine who was a former A&R for Doggy Style Records suggested that I check out GoldLink. THAT was a good idea. GoldLink’s sound was clean, fun and relatable. With production that reminded me of the fun hip-hop of the 90s, I couldn’t help but bounce during his performance, and EVERYBODY in the joint was bouncing with me. A fantastic live performance, who’s lyrical delivery was clear and concise, it was fantastic act for me to end the first day of Echo Park Rising.
