No Comments 17 August 2012

Gold Panda – “Mountain” / “Financial District”

No Comments 23 May 2012

– “Mountain”


Gold Panda marks his first official release since 2010′s with this 7″.  Derwin himself explains the tracks as such:

Listening to ‘Mountain’ again on a trip to Japan over New Year, we flew directly over Mt.Fuji and it seemed to just fit what I was seeing out of the window. ‘Financial District’ was just the opposite of the vast expanse of the mountain I guess. Crowded, synthetic and shiny… repetitive – and of course both can erupt at anytime.

The physical format is due out June 11th and can be ordered at Ghostly International HERE.

Week(end) Mix

No Comments 27 February 2012

Sure it’s only Monday night, but if your week is anything like mine you need something to carry you through, so here’s a mix to get you to the end of you week.  Start off with a new track from youngster producer called “Icarus”.  Next up a remix of the most annoying song (my opinion) by the most unannoying (fact)–the outcome is good.  Thirdly an excellent mix by the enigmatic London producers .  Followed up by StB favorite ’s take on Luke Abbott’s “Brazil”.  And lastly ’s haunting remix of ’s “Suffocation”.  Enjoy your week!

Madeon – “Icarus”
Foster The People – “Don’t Stop (Color On The Walls (Futurecop! ‘Schizophrenia’ Remix)”
Josh Beech and the Johns – “Lights (Monarchy “Aurora Borealis” Remix)”

Jesse Boykins III – “Back Home (Mermaids & Dragons)”

No Comments 28 June 2011

It may have been ’s production that initially got my attention, but it was Boykins’s crooning that drew me in. Jesse Boykins II, soul singer and producer originally from Chicago, sings through an ambient haze of getting back home to his mermaid lover.  The song, which Jesse describes as “the visions of a lover thru his travels, in search of his present self”, is a track from his Way Of A Wayfarer EP which drops June 30th.

Lykke Li – “Sadness Is A Blessing (Gold Panda Remix)”

No Comments 19 April 2011

comes through here with a fantastic remix of ’s “Sadness is a Blessing”.  Sending the song in nearly the complete opposite direction, Panda minimally backs Li’s beautifully broken vocals creating a cavernous and lonely atmosphere as if she’s consoling herself an empty room.  The track breaks free to wander into a session of Gold Panda’s woozy sampling but allows ’s vocals to always keep center stage.  Give it a listen below.

New Artist

Derwin Panda, a.k.a. , built a healthy reputation early last year as remix artist by tweaking tracks by the likes of Little Boots, Telepathe, Bloc Party, Simian Mobile Disco, and The Field.  Soon after the UK producer began releasing EP’s of original material establishing himself as an up-and-comer in the field of fragmented electronic music.  His sound is dizzying and calming with the same stroke.  Cut and spliced samples dance psychotically over ambient melodies and programmed beats.  On October 12th, will release his debut, , on Ghostly International.  Listen to the whole album below and then go buy it HERE.
