 Back once again the Golden Era team have not disappointed, with yet another free mixtape from the whole squad and then some.

This one features a lot more of Briggs and K21 than the previous tapes, but I’m assuming that is down to K21 being settled in on the label now and Briggs has his Sheplife album coming shortly. It also makes more reference to video games and green than the others but all this means is that the resident DJ’s have made some awesome beats featuring some 16 bit noises here and there, oh and the original Duke Nukem features on one of the tracks. This for me is why they are one of my favourite labels out at the minute, all their music features good vibes and intends to bring good times, there is never any talk about issues with other rappers or problems they may have, except pointing out that all rappers need to drop the ‘American accent’ which I agree with entirely.

There is as always a GE Cypher to play the tape out which features one of the best instrumentals I have ever heard, the video below will show you exactly what I mean, just find that little piano piece that’s in the background.

On the off chance you aren’t into rap but do appreciate a good instrumental the DJ track, split between Debris and Adfu  is absolutely golden, perfect cuts and samples throughout.

It is a great preview of what is to come from the Golden Era label in the next year and by the sounds of these previews it is going to be a heavy year, featuring around 4 albums I think all of which I am getting at the first possible opportunity and implore you to do the same.

If you have read this much into the review and haven’t yet copped the free mixtape please click the link and go get it, it is a quality tape that could show you some artists you don’t yet know are out there, or at the very least give you some good tunes to play through, at the end of the day guys its free what could go wrong?!

On the link for the download there is also another free tape on there courtesy of Golden Era called Briggs & Friends, again massive props for this one and fully worth the FREE download!
