With an early afternoon Saturday set, Goldroom used the cool, drizzling rain to their advantage. The mood was just right for a tropical escape from the city, and their hot synth and slow jams complimented the rain. Swinging in time to the beat, I wished I had a daiquiri in hand, but the festival offered ice cold sangria in its place. When the crowd heard the opening lyrics from their hit remix of Niki & the Dove’s “Mother Protect”, they held their hands and umbrellas up to the dreary sky and danced their hearts out. The gentle sway of an audience moving as one is the prime reason so many people seek out festivals such as Mamby, and Goldroom catered to that experience with their summer-perfect sound and beach-ready melodies.
