Since he wrapped up his Smoker’s Jacket series almost two years ago, Goldini Bagwell of Sandpeople fame has kept pretty quite, but he’s back now, and “Banana Peels” shows he hasn’t lost his step. Backed by production from Smoke M2D6, Goldini Bagwell goes off, riding the bouncy, cloudy beat with relative ease. The new tune is actually on the recently released GSBookings Mixtape Vol. 2, which includes a plethora of artists, including the likes of Crooked I and Illmaculate. The downside is this means the track has a DJ screaming over it in the beginning, but hopefully we can get a tagless version soon.
For those not in the know, Goldini has been working on a collaborative album with Illmac called Ethereal. As of now,
there isn’t a release date in place, but the release party is scheduled to take place on August 12th, so hopefully this means we’ll start seeing an album roll-out soon. The most we have is a glimpse of the potential artwork on the poster that was posted online. It’s small, but it’s enough to get me excited. For the time being, you can listen to “Banana Peels” below.
Update: Right when I submitted this, IAME confirmed the release date was August 18th.
