Fantastic. Just fantastic. The third installment in the ongoing Popular Bass series – curated and envisioned by the maestro Emeka, aka the man behind Gold Coast Trading Company – is possibly the strongest yet. Clocking in at a cozy fifteen minutes, Vol.3 features Danish producer CHLLNGR selecting tunes and setting a spare and intent tone.
The Harmattan is a dry and dusty West African trade wind. It blows south from the Sahara into the Gulf of Guinea between the end of November and the middle of March. On its passage over the desert it picks up fine dust particles which color the sky and distort the sun.

Get it while the getting’s good!
Allow me to be of assistance: turn your ears in the direction of the second (2nd) installment of the Popular Bass series, curated/art-directed/otherwise driven by Emeka Alams, the man behind Gold Coast Trading Company, and all around solid dude.
Each volume in the series is selected and mixed by a different individual. This most recent take is adjudicated by Johan Hugo, one of the movers and shakers behind Radioclit and The Very Best. Clocking in at just under 15 minutes, it’s a short and sweet shout out to South Africa, jumping in tempo from groove to club with a quickness.
Listen to it. Relax. Hell, don’t put your shoes on all day. You deserve this.
Alright, this is just dope. LxNxM homie Emeka, aka the globetrotting mastermind behind Gold Coast Trading Company (check the tropical bass-themed collab with Dutty Artz, and prepare to be blown away) has combined forces with NY-based DJ Sweater Beats to brew a bonafide mini mix.
As Emeka says, “After watching these guys work I was blown away with the amount of talent these dudes had. So I asked Antonio (Sweater Beats) to play with some of these traditional West African folk songs I had with me and this is what he did: Fourteen minutes and 44 seconds of ’hip-hop’ funk inspired vintage African folk.”
It’s packed mix, busting with great energy from end to end. Download this business now, step up your fashion game with Gold Coast, and be a better person.
