Gold Panda


Gold Panda’s new album Lucky Shiner is out now. Filled with beautifully composed samples met with textured, sophistication.

It’s just so good, and yes all of it. He has LP’s, EP’s, remixes, etc. from 2008 onward, including those of Little Boots, Bloc Party, Zero 7, Simian Mobile Disco, and one of my favorite remixes ever: Gold Panda’s remix of Telepathe’s Chromes On It.

Gold Panda is the exact soundtrack I would pick to complement my life, if I could go through every day with his tracks on rotate blasting out from the clouds, that would be perfect.

Next up: Two shows in France, in Lille on December 10th and Paris on the 11th.

Gold Panda – Before We Talked

track 8: I wish I could walk around nyc with songs like this blasting from a boom box on my shoulder.

track 9: saturday afternoons during ny winter with no real sunlight and rain and snow and walking down the street with a hat and mittens and loving whats in your ears and loving strangers.

Gold Panda

I’ve been pretty excited to post this song, as we’ve been jamming out to it all week.

London-based producer Gold Panda is well-known for his remixes including songs by Bloc Party, Little Boots, Lemonade and Telepathe (our favorite so far).  Currently, you can get your hands on his two EPs and a few singles while you wait for the full-length, due out soon.  Meanwhile, listen to the Telepathe remix below, and if you hop on Hype Machine, check out the song Greek Style here.  I can’t find an mp3 of it anywhere to post on forthebeat, but you can stream it there.

Telepathe – Chrome’s On It (Gold Panda Remix)

Get excited — we’ll be featuring this remix on a forthebeat mixtape for Swagger Paris.   As you already know, SL does a monthly mixtape on Et Musique Pour Tous called Le Miel du Mois that you can download here.  And we’ll let you know all about the Swagger mixtape when it’s up!  Stay tuned…

Oh, one more thing – Hot Chip / The xx tickets go on sale today at Noon – the show is at Terminal 5, which is not my fave, but I’ll suck it up.  Get you tix here.

Happy Friday – it’s beautiful in NYC.  Have a great weekend!
