Gold Panda – Mountain / Financial District

Sampling and reworking past music is the centrepiece of Gold Panda’s production, as both tracks demonstrate. Financial District’s unsettled synths find their place once a firmer beat kicks in after the minute-mark, whereas Mountain’s tribal drums that slip in at the start create a steadier tune. There’s only a hint of manipulated vocals in the first and none in the latter but both exhibit their own elements of charisma. Essential for anyone with a fondness for conventionally untethered electronic music.

The single is released on his own Notown label and is available to buy here.
