Goldensound Studios

Below is some key info on the Lawalah Vets and the collaboration between Goldensound Studios, Lawalah Familia and N.B.S. We will be doing an official tour in support of Lawalah Vets on October 13 in KL at The Bee and October 14 in Penang at Soundmaker Studio. These 2 concerts will have N.B.S. from Boston as the headliners and Lawalah Familia as direct support.Unity through hip-hop is the mission with Lawalah Vets, the brand new five song EP by Malaysian rap crew Lawalah Familia and Boston based rap duo N.B.S. aka Natural Born Spitters. Lawalah Familia is a collective that has over twenty members from all Malaysia. Benzooloo, Sabbala and Rahhh 5 Kaki are amongst the collective’s most popular members. Lawalah Familia has been steadily growing their fanbase in Malaysia since they released their debut mixtape Ramai Lagi Lawa back in 2015. N.B.S, comprised of cousins E’Flash and Vee Knuckles have released multiple albums and mixtapes over the past five years, such as Trapped In America which was fully produced by the world famous Snowgoons from Germany and BudaVets which was a collaboration with artists and producers from Hungary. N.B.S. are known by their catchphrase and popular hashtag #ItsTheVets on social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook. Lawalah Vets is a true blend of Western and Asian ideas, with each song on the EP containing lyrics in both English and Malay languages.Lawalah Vets was released online on June 15th, 2018 as a joint venture between Goldensound Studios Sdn. Bhd. and Lawalah Familia’s own label Mic Belakang Pintu Records. The EP is available worldwide on digital music platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, Deezer and many more. We are also currently selling a limited edition Lawalah Vets CD, T-Shirt and Cap package. Goldensound Studios is a music production company and an independent record label operating under GSS Records. I started Goldensound Studios a couple of years ago after previously being employed as an audio engineer at Maveriq Studios. I met N.B.S. back in 2010 while I was a student at Berklee College Of Music in Boston, as I secured an audio production internship for the duo and their independent label Big Bang Records. I reunited with N.B.S. in September 2017, when I organised two hip-hop concerts in Malaysia and invited N.B.S. to perform. Lawalah Familia also performed at both those concerts, known as the Hip-Hop Kings Festivals Selangor and Penang. In mid 2017 during the early stages of planning the Hip-Hop Kings Festivals, I saw the opportunity to bring N.B.S. and Lawalah Familia together to collaborate on a project, as I noticed that both groups had a lot in common musically and stylistically even though they were from two different worlds. Now that the Lawalah Vets project is completed and released, we're on to the next phase to promote the project with live performances and media appearances. 

Catch SPINZ tonight, Salam Musik will be in the studio tonight

"DJ" is a story about a boy who is tired of working day in and out.  Now its weekend and he feels like locking himself up in his room and play his favourite songs all day long. It's a metaphor for choosing your own path and doing the things you want to do in your own way. Sometimes you don't feel like following the speed of life, you just want to choose your own rhythm.  "DJ" represents that vibe. Choosing and arranging the songs you want to hear. To be in charge of your life and to let go all of the stress you had during the weekdays. This song is a collaborated work with a young producer called Redro.When you fuse cultural and modern beats, youll get Salammusik. A band that gives music in South-East Asia a breath of fresh air with not only addictive rhythms, but also with lyrics that yearn to be heard.The tunes of Salammusik are not foreign to the ears of music listeners. In 2010 Salam received his first AIM-17 Award for Best Hip-Hop Song 2010 with "Cerita Kedai Kopi" from the K.O. Mixtape.In July 2011 Salammusik released their first Album; Salam Musik.

Salammusik received the Award for the "Best Hip-Hop Song" 2013.Salam (who is now 25) started to make music while studying Music and Sound Design at Limkokwing University in 2006. Since I was in the first badge, the studio at the University was still in preparation. Thats why I had to build my own home studio to do the assignments. Having a studio in the house gave us the opportunity to experiment and work with other musicians, Salam explains.In 2008 he graduated his studies with the certificate of Excellence. This was when he could dedicate himself to produce his own peace music.Salammusik started to perform in a small place but it didnt take long before they hit the mainstages on most of the festivals in Malaysia. After two times performing in a cafe, the place had to shut down, salammusik supporters had blocked all the roads around the venue and cars couldnt pass by anymore. Excitement came from everywhere, nobody wanted to miss it.Salammusik knows how to make the people move and enjoy themselves during live shows.

It speaks of basic human needs such as peace, environment, love and unity. Salammusik managed to capture time and thoughts in life and delivered them well through their music.
