A little more than 10 weeks ago, Sugar Tongue Slim began his weekly Gold Rush initiative, “featuring your favorite radio records given the underground treatment.” On Leap Day, he finally released the whole project, and it’s so baller that I’m going to use the word “baller” to describe it. The mixtape features samples of AWOLNATION, Desire (from the Drive soundtrack and “Teleport 2 Me“), Foster The People, Gotye, Coldplay, The Band Perry, and many more. While a handful of the samples on Gold Rush are not exactly original (see: Pumped Up Kicks), STS still manages to make each song and sample his own with his original flow and excellent production.
