A definitive cinematic experience is the best way I can define Goldyn Chyld’s latest album, 1988: The Instrumentals. Its clear that Goldyn Chyld had a distinct vision for this album. The 1970’s soul and funk era samples that the beatmsith flipped, the carefully calculated flow of the tracklisting, and the overall dynamic sonics of 1988: The Instrumentals, are all evidence that Goldyn Chyld is a student of his craft.
The beats on 1988: The Instrumentals can easily serve as the score to some of the classic blaxploitation films of the past. The opening street anthem “Cuban Rounds” is the perfect banger to set off the album, the infectious funky and soulful vibes on this record immediately dictate the sound that the beatsmith is striving to carry throughout the project. Goldyn Chyld maintains the funk on “Supa Fly”, featuring a hypnotic melody and epic string sections set over some hard hitting drums. “Deeper” is a thrilling ending to the album as Goldyn Chyld chops up an unforgettable vocal sample while layering some complimentary keyboard sounds as well. “Deeper” could very well be Goldyn Chyld’s magnum Opus.
With 1988: The Instrumentals, Goldyn Chyld attempts to pull the listener in and engage them in a way that allows the listener to feel like they are the kingpin running the streets of Harlem during the 1970’s. But its crystal clear that Goldyn Chyld is the musical kingpin in this movie and 1988: The Instrumentals is the theme to Goldyn Chyld’s takeover.
