Solé Fixtape Vol. 7 by Goldroom January 29 2013
Oh you thought we forgot something this month? Nope. Better late than never with this one. Yes you've waited over a month and a half for this new Fixtape. But think of it this way -- your wait will be that much shorter for the next volume.
This month, Solé Bicycle Co. is pleased to introduce the newest member of the Fixtape family -- Fixtape Vol. 7 by Goldroom. For those of you who were smart/stupid enough to attend our shindig a few weeks ago, you'll have a pretty good idea of what to expect from this month's Fixtape.
We could sit here and ramble off a bunch of descriptors about Goldroom and his tropical textures, but we figured a polaroid would best do the trick. This Sunset snap, taken steps from the Solé HQ, is an ode to the place we call home -- Venice Beach. (#nofilter, just in case you're wondering)
So on that note, enjoy this month's edition of the Fixtape series and keep your ears flappin for next months. And as always, we have more artwork to add to your collection:

More about this month's Fixtape Artist:
Born from the simplicity of emotive choruses and lush electronic ornaments, Goldroom has transformed into a fascinating tale of modern music culture; a nostalgic romance of tropical textures and soulful rhythms.
After the success of his single “Fifteen”, which found itself with over 300,000 plays on Soundcloud, the top spot on the Hype Machine charts, features on Pitchfork, Spinner, MTV, and spins on BBC Radio 1, few can say that they’ve had a year quite like Goldroom has. In less than that amount of time, Goldroom’s travels have seen him touring on stages in Asia, Europe, South America, Central America, Australia, and of course across the USA and Canada.
His follow up original single, “Sweetness Alive” features the luscious vocals of SLL (formerly Saint Lou Lou), a beautiful track that both perfectly compliments his debut, and begins to set the stage for the upcoming debut of Goldroom’s live band performance over this spring’s SXSW Festival in Austin, TX.
As an established remixer in his own right, Goldroom has gone on to work with such buzz-worthy acts as Niki & The Dove, Atlas Genius, Alpine, Poolside, and Gigamesh. Most notably, his remix for Niki & The Dove has been streamed more than 3 million times on YouTube and has been supported by The Magician, Aeroplane, Alex Metric and more.
Be on the lookout for even more from one of this year’s greatest success stories, both on the road and in the studio. With a full length album already in the works, you can rest assured that this remarkable tale will find you on a steady hunt for the dance floor.
