Gold Panda

UK producer Gold Panda‘s debut album (Lucky Shiner) came together all while he was ‘touring, mixing, moving houses and splitting with a girlfriend’. A sonic collision of vinyl-static beats and heart-on-sleeve melancholia, the album was mixed bySimian Mobile Discos James Shaw and recorded in two sessions at a shady retreat in the English countryside (his Aunt and Uncle’s Essex Home). From Gold Panda:

They went away over Christmas for two weeks and asked me to look after their dog. Id walk Daisy in the morning and then make tunes till she pestered me to take her out again. Id bounce down what Id done, stick my headphones on and walk her, get ideas, and repeat the process.

Take a listen to the result inSame Dream China and Snow & Taxis.
