On the fifth day he created bass, then he took an Amen break. And so it was, that on Thursdays the high priests of low frequency would gather at the record store in Brooklyn to perform the ancient rites of the turntable… It is in this solemn spirit of praise to all that rumbles the jungle that the cult we call halcyon presents our latest, soon to be habitual ritual, Bless Up! – Thursdays from 6-9pm at halcyon the shop and archived on percussionlab.com Funky monks take note, Bless Up! is three hours of anything-but-silent devotion to the woofer ripping trinity of Drum and Bass, Dubstep and Dub Reggae. Our own pied pontiff, Liondub administers the wax sacraments alongside a rotating cast of cardinals representing NYC’s holiest DJ diocese. Visiting saints make miraculous appearances and as always, there’s no tithe at the door and plenty of alms for the poor, so you can save while being saved.
Hailing from Fort Greene, Brooklyn, Golden’s passion for music came at a very early age. Being exposed and going to clubs in the early ’90s literally spending his checks on music alone, DJing was his calling. His musical influences are deeply rooted in Hip-Hop, R&B, ’70s Funk, Rare Groove and Disco. At 17, he traveled to London and strongly followed the Jungle / Drum & Bass scene while working at an underground radio station where he met his mentors and favorite DJs. He got his first big break at 19 as a guest DJ at Webster Hall. Since then he has played New York’s finest clubs such as Shelter, APT, The Cooler, Sapphire, Baktun, The Lunatarium and the list goes on. Golden Child spins across the board from Drum & Bass Hip-Hop / R&B, Reggae, House, Dance Classics and Rare Grooves.
