No one can say whether Golden Features really has a handsome mug, because no one really knows what he looks like just yet. The anonymous producer is only ever pictured behind a gilded, featureless mask—the kind of thing a super sophisticated, art-loving serial killer would wear (you know the type).
Here's what we do know about him: he emerged out of nowhere with a four-song, self-titled EP in February. He's from Sydney. Porter Robinson loves him. Australian radio station triple j can't get enough of him. And when we interviewed him back in April, he told us that "the whole secrecy thing bummed me out for a bit, but I'm going ahead with what I wanted to do in the first place."
Proving that he's doing exactly that, Golden Features is back with a remix of the Presets' hit "No Fun," carving out the original's electro-y synths and tossing them out of the window—leaving behind a supremely groovey, slow-burning house track so smokey it's practically on fire. As the song itself goes, "I'm happy in a place like this."
