Gold Panda - Fifth Avenue
This is a track that, every time it comes on the satellite radio, I look down at the display and shout to myself, “It’s Gold Panda!!” This is the kind of music I used to want to make with acoustic instruments. It’s so delicate it’s about to fall apart.
Here, Gold Panda, an Essex lad whose surname is actually Panda, combines tiny, mosaic, microhouse samples with rhythmic glitch production. Excellent quiet starry night driving music.
