Featured Gold Panda stories

It’s been three years since Gold Panda released Lucky Shiner – a sparkly debut album that showed off the British producer’s uncanny ability to bend and twist samples in ways that were both forward-thinking and somehow nostalgic (which makes sense since the album was apparently named after his grandmother). While Lucky Shiner made for something… More »

A few days late but stacked with excellence, here is your collection of May’s absolute jams. For optimal ease of consumption, you’ll find it here in three forms: a 12-track downloadable zip of the month’s best free MP3s, a 15-song Spotify playlist of May’s finest Spotify-enabled tracks, and to close it out, a 46-track Soundcloud… More »

Open Mike Eagle – “Ziggy Starfish (Anti-Anxiety Raps)” Video (Feat. Hannibal Buress) (Stereogum Premiere)

Open Mike Eagle wanders through a seemingly typical club scene in his new video for the Gold Panda-produced “Ziggy Starfish (Anti-Anxiety Raps).” The video follow the lustful encounter of two intoxicated clubbers.

Gold Panda – “Clarke’s Dream”

The tough-to-categorize British producer Gold Panda released his sophomore album Half Of Where You Live just last year, but he’s already working on a follow-up. And in the process, he’s made a one-off track called “Clarke’s Dream.” The track thumps harder that Gold Panda’s usually-diffuse tracks, and it’s also funkier, riding an almost-house drum track… More »

Gold Panda – “Community” Video

The video for “Community,” the tingly new single from the British producer Gold Panda, could’ve gone a few different ways, and it went at least a couple of them. The British menswear line Lux & Noah produced the video, but it doesn’t appear to be especially fashion-damaged. Instead, half of the video is crisp, pretty… More »

Gold Panda – “Community (Fort Romeau Remix)”

“Community” is a cut from Gold Panda’s sophomore full-length Half Of Where You Live that was released early this summer. The song is a collage of synths — some looping and glittery, some elongated and restrained, but its four minutes as a continuous build. Here, British producer Fort Romeau gives a nod to the original’… More »

Gold Panda – “We Work Nights”

Earlier this year, Gold Panda announced Half Of Where You Live, his sophomore full-length album along with its first track “Brazil.” While his commitment to making electronic music with tranquil vibes remains in tact, he’s pushing his own boundaries with his new material.

Stream Gold Panda Trust EP

British electronic producer Gold Panda has been relatively quiet lately, though his moody and zoned-out productions continue to echo in weird places; check the sample on Charli XCX’s “You (Ha Ha Ha).” But he’s just announced the impending release of Trust, a warm and downbeat four-track EP that’ll be coming out in March. And the… More »

Charli XCX – “You (Ha Ha Ha)”

The BBC recently debuted “You (Ha Ha Ha),” the new single from British dance-pop phenom Charli XCX, and it is one very much worth hearing. The track uses Gold Panda’s instrumental “You” as its beat, building a sighing and awestruck love song out of its ripple-stutter. Hear a radio rip at Noisey. More »

Gold Panda – “4”

Here’s a little instrumental one-off called “4” from UK beatmaker Gold Panda, which he sets up like so:

Derwin “Gold” Panda is the latest beat-minder to contribute to !K7’s DJ-Kicks series with a 22-track mix dropping late next month.

Gold Panda – “MBP”

If you’re DJing and need some segue, queue up “Quitter’s Raga.” The opening kick’s sizzle paired with the track’s ebullient sitar strokes is nicely upbeat coming out of most any song, leads well into most any other, and will be the one that gets the most requests for identification from people who don’t know the… More »

Remixtape Vol. 3

This month’s Remixtape begins with a wistful twist (Clams Casino, a Gold Panda redo of Lykke Li, Phone Tag tagging up Small Black’s “New Chain,” Creep working on Planning To Rock) and ends on a pop note (that Star Slinger remix of Alex Winston), with the middle dedicated to stranger and more beat-oriented musics.
