GoldLink Curates 'The New DMV' Playlist on Apple Music (Listen)

August 7, 2018

By Erin Thibeau

D.C.'s own GoldLink has curated a playlist of rising stars from the area for Apple Music called "The New DMV."

The Editor's Notes describe the DMV as "home to giants of jazz (Duke Ellington), blues (Bo Diddley), and R&B (Marvin Gaye). And now, a new generation of stars is making major noise, partly by harking back to the region's rich musical legacy. At the forefront is D.C. native GoldLink, who incorporates his city's go-go sound, Baltimore club music, and lots of mid-Atlantic soul into his hip-hop." 

“We're just starting to gain the recognition we deserve,” GoldLink told Apple Music. “I'm looking forward to a future where the DMV has the respect that breeds legitimate stars and is at the forefront of culture.”

GoldLink, Kali Uchis, Big Flock, Rico Nasty, Fat Trel, 3ohblack, Kelela, Shy Glizzy, Ari Lennox, IDK, Lightshow, Q Da Fool and many more are featured on the playlist.

Take a listen to "The New DMV" on Apple Music.
