Known for his signature alternative hip-hop sound, Goldwater's latest project promises to deliver a unique fusion of hip hop lyricism with modern phonk sensibilities. The album features eighteen original tracks, crafted by AUH2O with international support from a creative team of marquis engineers from Argentina, France, and The Netherlands.

"Iron City Chop Shop is a culmination of my life's work in music," said Goldwater. "It's a celebration of my passion for high energy music that makes you want to rob a bank, and a tribute to the many influences who have inspired me over the years. I can't wait for fans to hear the album and experience this new chapter in my musical journey."

This new project explores the burgeoning genre of Phonk. ‘Iron City Chop Shop’ is a radical blend several of Phonk's subgenres including: Drift Phonk, House Phonk, and OG RARE PHONK. The album aims to explore the entire landscape of the new Phonk genre, with heavy use of Memphis underground vocal samples, and dreamy spaced-out cloud funk melodies. Critics are already calling Louis Goldwater’s new work “A diamond encrusted AK-47 with a side of ranch dressing.”

The new album will be available for purchase on all major music platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music. In support of the album release, Goldwater also announced a series of live performances, including a headline show at The Fillmore in Philadelphia. These shows have not been officially booked yet. However, they are still being announced in order to conjure up energy and excitement around the topic.

‘Iron City Chop Shop’ promises to be a must-listen album for fans of cutting edge Drift Phonk House Music. Stay tuned for updates on Louis Goldwater's upcoming performances and future releases at
