How Los Angeles based future soul musician came to the decision of naming himself Goldwash is a mystery to me, but now that I think about it, a wash in gold does evoke all that is luxurious and posh, ritzy and opulent. It’s a thought much fitting of the artist’s “existential funk”, which he serves up in abundance on Why Hide It, the first single from his forthcoming EP Why Hide It. Though resplendent, Why Hide It is also raw and lustful. It’s a carnal heated, sexy burning, yet smooth buttery electronica and R&B funk emulsion both floaty and dense. Why Hide It features swooning saxophone harmonies and, as Goldwash himself puts it, Lex Luger-esque strings. If you need a song to go with your seedy late night adventures, this crimson burning, steamy sensual jam is it. Grab Why Hide It from iTunes, here, while we await further news about Goldwash’s next EP.

Goldwash calls his music “existential funk”. As someone who happens to be drawn to the ideas behind existentialism, I find myself wondering whether my existence, when listening to the Los Angeles based future soul musician, is defined by his music. It certainly feels like the rest of the world fades away when I’m listening to “Ok, I Lied”. It feels, for a brief moment, that my only purpose in life is to lose myself in his sinuous winding, tangy quivering song. I transfix all my attention on his creamy cooing and snazzy textured electronica. In a parallel world, his “existential funk” could very well be called “future jazz”. “Ok, I Lied” is Goldwash’s latest single from his dazzling debut EP, LDR, out now on iTunes.

Goldwash is at it again, intoxicating me with his unique brand of sensual seething, lavish rippling “existential funk”. New single LDR is the exact “sweet oblivion” he coos about in James Vincent McMorrow like buttery falsettos on the song. The Baltimore by way of Los Angeles electro soul artist has given us a sensational taste from and the title track off a debut EP, one which I more than eagerly await. LDR’s resplendent drapes and dynamic digressions form a labyrinthian sonic maze made up of surreal shimmering corners. LDR is out now on iTunes.

It was but two weeks ago that we were all greatly looking forward to brand new Frank Ocean, and I surmised that, perhaps, just maybe, new Frank Ocean would be delayed again. I was on the money, and no Frank Ocean dropped, but we were lucky enough to have Goldwash and his swooning cover of Thinking Bout You to help us survive the Ocean drought the one week more we needed to. But it’s Goldwash’s own original music that the Baltimore based artist brings to us this weekend via a sensational song named Honest. The track, which was debuted by venerated music station Boiler Room, is everything we’ve come to expect from this existential funk maestro. Honest squishes and trills, driven by svelte keys, fervent cooing, and jagged beats. It’s like a jam session involving James Blake, Jack Garratt, and Ben Khan, pure brilliance.

I know we’re all dying of thirst for new Frank Ocean, who seems to have the ability to tease us to no end with the prospect of fresh material. It seems the drought might be ending soon, considering the announcement of Boys Don’t Cry on Friday, but then again, it’s Frank Ocean. For all we know, Friday might come with merely another delay. As we cross our fingers and toes in hopes that Friday will be epic, Goldwash keeps us sane with a dark and sultry cover of Thinkin Bout U. The Baltimore based musician envelops us with his brand of heady existential funk, a droopy viscous pool of feverish hot, emotive broiling lust.

Separate kicks off with some spellbinding trills and a slowly building sonic arc including fluttery flute, throaty guitar, and sultry vocals. In other words, it was pretty obvious from the get go that Goldwash’s latest was going to be another lavishly swooning display of existential funk music magic. Separate pops, snaps, and glides feverishly, its restlessness, aligning with its lyrics which exhibit fading patience and desperate desire. The Baltimore based musician has made Separate a free download, here.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from Baltimore electronic act Goldwash, it’s that I like this newfangled thing named “existential funk”, a term which he himself created to describe his music. The singer songwriter and producer debuted a brand new existential funk tune today on Nest HQ, a bubbly, spiky, swanky future funk masterpiece fittingly named Need To Hear. The playful and agile song takes on a life of its own as it pops, crackles, and arpeggios vibrantly.

Baltimore’s Goldwash is back with more of what he likes to call “existential funk”, once again delivering a splashy organic and intricately dynamic form of indie dance on Malady. The singer songwriter and producer is absolutely scintillating on the bubbly, spacey, and funky jam, his second track to follow up on earlier debut, But U Won’t. I’d imagine if Caribou went Cashmere Cat, it might sound something like this.  Malady would cure any blues that might be ailing you. Download Goldwash’s brilliant tune for free, here.
