2013 – Gold Panda (UK)

Gold Panda Together 2013

In a post-dubstep age, when half the world is still working to get as much bass into their mixes as possible, it can be a relief to know that Gold Panda is out there, dousing his productions in treble.

If you think of music as a journey, Gold Panda’s music is a trip through exotic locales – India, China, Neverland, the aether – at the pace of a glimmering cartoon faerie pulling you by the hand across the sky. It’s at turns contemplative and celebratory, but always awash in auditory tinsel and dust.

Since his debut LP, Lucky Shiner, in 2010, he’s been keeping himself busy with world tours, a DJ-Kicks release, some singles, and a brand new EP, Trust, which shows him refining his sound to a more focused region. It’s still clearly Gold Panda, thoughtful and meditative, but there’s a minimal quality emerging which we’ve not seen before.

As you can imagine, the live performance of such an artist tends to be an experimental affair, one in which you’d be just as at home dancing or bobbing your head and taking a journey of your own. Then, when “You” comes on, be prepared to let go.

"The sixth edition of Together ... was a reminder of how much Boston still has to offer for the tribes of dance music fans who live here ... Despite its size, Together pulled off an impressive range of sounds from across the electronic spectrum."
