Last heard trumpeting his hometown pride on March’s Boston Bass, DJ, producer and mixtape heavyweight Clinton Sparks returns to our pages with Gold Rush, the first in a series of singles he plans to drop via Photo Finish/Island Def Jam. On this left-of-center selection, Sparks’ clamorous percussion and buzzsaw guitar set the stage for paper-chasing verses by two hitmakers from very different corners of the hip-hop landscape. In addition to 16s from 2 Chainz and Macklemore, this cut boasts a disarmingly catchy hook by Sparks himself. D.A. Wallach of Star Trak duo Chester French takes center stage on the record’s stomp-clap bridge. Gold Rush will appear on forthcoming, unscheduled album Disco Ball & Chain. Keep your browsers locked for more loosies from Sparks and his formidable cast of connects.
