Mancunian MC ‘Goldfinger’ links up once again with Melbourne based UK DJ/Producer Tigs to deliver a powerful concoction of impactful lyrics on a head bouncing, militaristic instrumental for new single ‘Title Deeds’.
The duo come prepared for another musical siege as the single follows in hot pursuit of ‘I’m Not Hearing That’, the previous collaboration between Tigs and Goldfinger which was dubbed a “massive track” with “high octane anthem full of quick fire rhymes on top of warped bass” by UK Bass Music and smashed its way on to Kiss FM.
Leading the charge, Goldfinger, (a founding member of Virus Syndicate), delivers his renowned intricate wordplay as the talented MC paints a vivid picture with the use of clever similes and metaphors. Laid out over the instrumental by his distinct voice and impeccable rhyming structure, he is unapologetically himself and stands apart from generic sounds that are frequently offered up in modern music. Meanwhile, Tigs showcases a masterclass of production, blending elements of grime and drill, choosing a percussive pattern that stays on theme with the sinister message of the song yet pounds out a bassline worthy of any club speaker in the world.
Dissecting the record in his own terms, the Manchester native declares: “Title Deeds is a call to action with an almost military urgency. I’m using double and triple entendres that encompass the need to do better from a music perspective, a street life perspective and a financial security perspective, all the while blurring the lines between which metaphor is a hidden meaning for which. Tigs has created the perfect drill backdrop with military snare rolls, atmospheric keys and a rumbling 808 that holds it all together!”
Partnered with a video, premiered on Link Up TV, the visuals are an extension of the lyrical story. Set in a secluded forest, where the MC is dressed in full military attire, Goldfinger performs to camera as he dons his artillery, ready for war. This strong visual imagery reiterates the compelling narrative that is at the heart of ‘Title Deeds’, offering up scenes including a war strategy room, communications headquarters and an appropriately red coloured combat scene.
Having had an illustrious career to date and being a major player in bass music, Goldfinger has toured throughout the world, receiving support from countless TV and radio platforms and has been a continuous high charter on platforms including Beatport. Tigs is revered as an outstanding DJ/producer throughout the world and is a regular on prestigious stations such as Radio 1, Kiss FM, Rinse FM and Apple Music. With a slew of accolades in their own right, this unstoppable force is ready to hit the scene with another instant classic!
