Last year Santigold released the mixtape-style album project I Don’t Want: The Gold Fire Sessions, collaboration with DJ/Producer Dre Skull. Unlike other Santigold albums, which are recorded over long periods and heavily curated and edited by Santi, the record is a loose and spontaneous project, a snapshot of the infectious energy of the two weeks she spent in the studio with Dre Skull exploring reggae and Afro-Caribbean influenced rhythms and threading them with the incisive social commentary, humor and daredevil sound that have become hallmarks of her work.
