“Peter G is a local institution. When it comes to funk that wants you want to get down on the dance floor and strut a move or two, he is the master. In his latest incarnation, Golden Sound, Mr G has produced an album so sunny and fuzzy and damn right cool you’ll want to recline in a banana lounge with a tasty view of the pacific for company. Warm analogue Rhodes, Hammond and moogs are definite standouts: though lashings of space disco and Parisian 60’s charm interlaced with a platoon of smooth vocals, add extra spice to a record that proves world class funk players are residing in our own backyard.”
- The Matchstick.
The Golden Sound is a vision created by Peter Golikov, 7 years ago, with the focus being to produce a record, that encompasses fellow talented musicians, to create a body of work that “Bathes Golden Rays of Sunshine on all those that Witness it”.
Peter G has produced/performed most of the instruments on the recording’s, with guest vocalists and special guests appearing throughout “Bathing in Goodness”. The majority of the recording was completed at his Golden Sound studios, where the focus is on vintage/classic Instruments and sounds. Think Fender Rhodes / Clavinets / Hammond Organ’s and Moog Synth’s, swirling to create a palette of sonic richness.
The group consists of the coolest cats on the street, cookin up a stew of Soul Food, for your aural pleasure. The focus of The Golden Sound is to bring to the Bandstand, the finest musicians, and pay respect to the movement of Brisbane Jazz /Funk/Roots music reminiscent of the american and european 60’ and 70’s. The Golden Sound are a J.B /Hancock/Deodato inspired cosmic keyboard soundscape.
