Gold Panda

New music from Gold Panda is always welcome, isn’t it? Since his early EPs, anything Derwin Panda (for that is the name Wikipedia insists his parents gave him) creates has been eagerly awaited, with his debut album, ‘Lucky Shiner’, being one of our favourites of last year.

The last new material to emerge from his bunker was a track called ‘MBP’ in June. Now he’s back again with a new track that will open his forthcoming DJ-Kicks mix, which is due for release on 31 Oct. Entitled ‘An Iceberg Hurled Northward Through Clouds’ it feels like more of a bridge to the next phase of Gold Panda than ‘MBP’, which still bore the distinctive looping of ‘Lucky Shiner’. This new track is painted with an altogether more subtle brush, and is reminiscent of tracks on Pantha Du Prince’s ‘Black Noise’ album.
