GoldRoom (DJ Set)
“I want to write my Moon Safari or my Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, or my Rush of Blood to the Head.” From behind a pair of spotless Ray Bans, Josh Legg of Goldroom looks towards some big goals. He pats his nearby laptop bag affectionately. “If in my life,” he says, “I could write a song that’s as good as ‘Free Fallin” or ‘Wonderwall,’ then I can die happy.”
Goldroom is Josh Legg’s solo DJ act and a separate four-piece live band. With a catalogue of remixes dripping in palm tree sap (Nikki and the Dove’s “Mother Protect”) and a discography of sleepy sunshine originals (“Fifteen”), Goldroom surfs the line between sugary synth anthems and disco laden refrains while never quite jumping ship for the pop music bandwagon. Despite the current influx of marimba ridden ‘tropical’ house, Goldroom brings a classic songwriting technique to an otherwise dull music subgenre. “Before I was even 18, I had seen a few Allman Brothers shows and a couple Phish shows, which led me to the amazing songwriting that happened in the 60s, 70s, and 80s,” he says. “So many artists are like, ‘I was lying under my dad’s piano and he would play music for me for hours…’ That just didn’t happen for me.”
