Golden Features Remixes The Presets

Golden Features

Australian duo Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes, better known as the Presets, has released a remix EP of their hit song No Fun. The EP includes artists RÜFÜS, Lancelot, Eekkoo, Phile Kieren & Wax Wings. They have now included Golden Features in the bunch with this deep house remix that echoes in your head. Stripping the original song of its airy electronic synths and replacing them with a dark eerie bassline, consistent with Golden’s style.

Not really much is known about this anonymous entity known as Golden Features other than his music and his badass faceless gold mask. He did however reveal himself to be Australian producer Tom Stell in an interview with Thump for his self titled EPBut Tom is more about the art of his music rather than his identity and his work shows it; Recently releasing a music video for his track Tell Me ft. Nicole Millar and going on tours at venues and festivals.

Through social media we get to know more about Golden Features and his influences. Being quite excited his remix of No Fun got the golden stamp of approval by the Presets, Golden says they are “basically the reason he got into electronic music”. From jumping into festivals to see the Presets during the “last of his underage years” to making a remix approved by them is something a fan can only dream of. Few are ambitious enough to make that dream a reality!

Golden Features Releases A Music Video

Golden-Features-Self-titled-EP

Since the start Golden Features has been a project by Tom Stell to express creativity in his own musical style, becoming an artist of his own, straying away from the tedious nature of mainstream edm artists. Since his debut self titled EP Golden Features has been getting recognized everywhere. Recently Golden was nominated for best break through artist by InTheMix next to artists like What So Not, Motez, Wave Racer & M4SONIC. The winner will be announced this August 6th at an invite only dinner.

Needless to say Golden has been real busy with his music and getting his name out there. He has also been working on other ways to express his creativity, looking into visual arts.  As of late Golden released a music video for his track Tell Me ft. Nicole Millar. The video has a sinister vibe at first being filmed in black & white. Taking place in an abandoned warehouse with odd characters Golden takes you inside his head and gives you a glimpse of his world. Very fitting visuals for this track I would say check out the video below to see for yourself.

Under the Veil of Anonymity: Golden Features

Golden Features, a mysterious figure at first, recently revealed his identity in a interview with Thump.  Within dropping his debut EP “Golden Features“, the producer quickly gained some recognition after Triple J, a radio station in Australia, aired some of his tracks in February. Porter Robinson supported the EP quickly after. Gaining thousands of views within days people started wondering just who is this anonymous producer, and is he new? 

Turns out he is none other than Tom Stell, an Australian producer from the duo Kyro & Bomber, making big room house. “To be honest with you, I didn’t love it anymore. I wasn’t enjoying it”, Stell stated in the interview, “felt like I was forcing something. That I was just trying to fit into what everyone else was doing, because it seemed like the easy option.” Coming from a history “hip hop guys like MF Doom” and dance house influences like Daft Punk and the Chemical Brothers, Stell was looking for more of his own style of music that can stand out on its own. 

“The whole idea of the Golden Features project is to turn myself into an artist that people actually go to see for their own music.” explaining further “I don’t want people to be hung up on the anonymity thing because, in my mind, it’s not important. It’s the music”. A real idea that gives a breath of fresh air to the EDM scene as more producers are getting more creative and moving away from the same old, same structured “big room house” music and into whatever they want!

Golden Features is set to play at HARDstraylia, Hard‘s Debut Australian tour ran by Destructo.
