Born and raised in the coastal city of Long Beach, California, Cold Hart was seldom seen without a skateboard in his hand. He would play records by post-punk’s Nick Cave or the Cure just as often as he would listen to rappers Speaker Knockerz and Chief Keef.
In 2014 Cold Hart co-founded the renowned collective, GothBoiClique. It was Cold Hart who officially titled the group after sending a beat with the same name to fellow co-founder Wicca Phase Springs Eternal. Starting in 2015, Cold Hart began to release a slew of singles and definitive vocal mixtapes such as OC Season 1 & 2 and Downer, which helped surpass his distinction as solely a producer. Today, GothBoiClique sits at ten members, including Lil Tracy, Wicca Phase, Fish Narc, Yawns, Horse Head, and the late Lil Peep.
In 2018, Cold Hart strayed away from sampling entirely on his acclaimed EP Wish Me Well, opting instead to incorporate live instrumentation with producer Yawns. Shortly after, the two released their smash hit “Eyes” with Rawska. Cold Hart’s listeners eagerly await his full-length debut studio album Good Morning Cruel World, which combines melodic elements of indie, post-punk, and hip-hop. — Jack Angell
