EDITORS’ NOTES

That Mathew Gold is often categorised as an R&B singer comes as no surprise—after all, the former Idols SA contestant's brooding slow jams and falsetto-crooned love songs are as seductive as anything you'll hear from Usher or Chris Brown. But the SAMA-nominated singer/songwriter segues into moody electronic with equal assurance. His sophomore LP, Mathew Gold, recorded in various studios across the country by a whopping 13 different local and international producers (including dancey Durban-based hip-hop soundboard warrior Sketchy Bongo), emerges as a sultry, contemporary R&B and dance-driven album that spins just as potently in the bedroom as it does across the dance floor.
