Iris Gold Top 5 Influences playlist

Outkast – Prototype

“I first heard this song when an ex-boyfriend put it on before commencing sexy-time. Now, it makes me even more sure that one day I will marry Andre 3000. It also has become a reference track for me to explain to producers, when I want something to be psychedelic”.

Lil Nas X – Old Town Road

Still so so dope! So refreshing and laid back. What an icon. Here in Denmark you see alot of rappers on the cowboy flex. Definitely inspired a lot of artists to be who they are. I have probably stood in front of the mirror with my hairbrush pretending to sing it about a trillion times.

Roy Ayers – Everybody Loves The Sunshine

“This song I got introduced to in my aunty’s kitchen. It makes me think of good times and Chapati bread. For a long time, it was the only song I would listen to before a show to calm down and get in the sunshine zone. It will always be linked to the memory of my two aunties cooking me dinner while listening to the track on repeat”.

Thundercat – Dragonball Durag

This one makes me feel hella cool, I only heard it a few days ago on my DJ’s laptop and then used it the other day as a reference in the studio for drums. I heard it all night long last night whilst braiding my hair and then put my purple durag on.

Beck – The New Pollution

“I first heard this in my uncle’s living room. I pretty much for a long time wanted to be a female Beck (now i wanna be iris gold). It has influenced me so much! It’s the ultimate hip-hop hippy track, which I’m all about. And the video is so so dope! The memory of my uncle with a spliff and a cowboy hat singing the track to me pretending to be Beck still is hilarious”.
