We are thrilled to welcome back Gold Panda to London, with support coming from highly regarded label-mates Luke Abbott and Dam Mantle.
The UK producer always manages to craft brilliant electronic music and his new Trust EP, which is out now digitally via Ghostly, is no exception. It’s a short release, kicked off by a quick intro which spills over into the title track, a gentle cut better fit for lying down with your eyes closed than for dancing. At times it recalls the warped hip hop of Flying Lotus, and the rhythmic shifts of Four Tet at others, but it’s by no means solely a product of its influences. The next track, “Burnt Out Car In A Forest,” begins with a similar type of sun-rising crackles heard on Balam Acab’s “Oh, Why,” but quickly turns into an extended dance cut. And then everything’s brought home with the swelling atmospheric bass of the final track, “Casyam_59#02.” The four tracks are diverse yet consistent and they’ll leave you looking forward to his second full length album, which should see the light of day at some point this year.
Until then, you can catch Gold Panda at Electric Brixton on the 12th June.
