Album Notes
The story of GOBI begins in west Texas, on the borderland of El Paso and Juarez, where Justin Dillon and Chuco Phil first met. The two would venture across the border every weekend spending countless nights in the clubs and discotecas on "The Strip" in Ciudad Juarez. There the thriving grooves and uptempo beats would take them on many sleepless nights, and instill an unstoppable curiosity and desire to create their unique and iconic breed of electronic dance music IDR (Indie-Dance-Rap). Now based out of Austin, TX, GOBI has gained the reputation for turning any room into a jungle of lights and beats.

"I dig the record...the production is tight" - Thomas Turner (Ghostland Observatory)

"GoldOnBlackIce has a confident air about it: Arciniega’s vocals have grown stronger in his role as rapper, his spewed words have more urgency to them. Many of the tracks include pop culture references, but also have personal comparisons, seen in the yearnings of “Lose Me”: “Before my loans/Before all of my debt/Before all my friends turned into army vets”. The duo has gotten more creative in their musical fusions, adding pining female vocals to “Lose Me”, opening with muddled background chatter in the bass heavy “Texas Sun” and digitalizing up Arciniega’s voice to a peppy hamster jabber in “Serenity”. Dillon’s dance beats come across as more deliberate, polished and purposeful: Get your a$$ to the dance floor.
The album’s overall result? A sound similar to what one might hear stumbling upon a majestic siren city." - Laura Roberts

"reminding me variously of Trentemoller, a darker Mylo and some of Radiohead's post-Kid A stuff. On top of that smart, fun instrumental base, frontman Chuco Phil laid down his Kweli-via-De la Rocha flow" - Red River Noise
