Taimil Dyas aka Midas.Gold is the newest team member of the Creative Tracks Team. He will start as a trainee Artsworker this year shadowing our more experienced members of the team. He is a Hip Hop artist and also loves to perform spoken word so he will bring an exciting element to the program.
Midas.Gold was born in Seattle Washington in 1992 and raised in Brisbane. He grew up listening to a collection of soul, RnB and Hip Hop which has influenced his musical direction. He started his career in 2009 as a musician with a local Brisbane group known as “RF” and has since developed as a solo artist. His greatest influences are J.Cole, Tupac, Dizzy Wright, Ab-Soul and Lupe Fiasco.
Midas.Gold collaborated with the local musician by the name of “All things Lost” on the track “Disperated” as a guest MC. The track will be released in March 2014. It is a fusion of several genres including Hip Hop and electronica.
Currently, Midas.Gold is writing material for his upcoming mixtape “D.F.K” (Descended from Kings) which will be released in August 2014.
Midas.Gold will be joining the Creative Tracks team to deliver workshops in Indigenous communities across Queensland and hopes that his music will provoke thoughts that promote change within oneself. As a young musician he is passionate and committed to being a strong role model to his peers and future generations.
