First Listen: Golden Rules drops 'Golden Ticket'

Unlock the new Bundle from Golden Rules to grab the exclusive 7-track Golden Ticket album, instrumentals, stems and an original artwork collection from ESPO.

You may have heard UK producer Paul White's live-instrument infused hip-hop tracks backing acts like Danny Brown and Charli XCX.  Despite having numerous hits in tow, the South London beatmaker, described as “a 21st century DJ Shadow”, had never released a full-length collaboration with a single artist.  Then in 2013, he turned his attention to rising Florida MC/singer Eric Biddines.  After a chance listen of Biddines' Planetcoffeebean2 mixtape and a brief email exchange, the duo's first tracks were complete and Golden Rules was born.


Fast-forward two years to the duo's first release, Golden Ticket (Lex Records), out today, exclusively via BitTorrent Bundle.  The laid-back debut, timed perfectly to coincide with late Summer highway cruises and beach adventures, expertly maneuvers between pop, hip-hop and old school blues and soul, with White's guitar heavy psych-hop instrumentation laying the bed for Biddine's Andre 3000-like rap-sing delivery.  The 7-track album concludes with flawless cameo from hip-hop luminary Yasiin Bey on the song "Never Die".

Download the Golden Ticket album here, before it's available anywhere else. Unlock the Bundle with an email address to nab an exclusive digital box set of instrumentals and stems direct from White's hard drive, plus photos, video, and a collection of artwork from street-artist guru ESPO.  Cop it all now on BitTorrent Bundle.
