Gold Panda

Hailing from Chelmsford in Essex, but now located to Berlin, Germany, Gold Panda started writing beats and collaborating a few years ago, beginning a journey that ultimately saw him nominated in the BBC’s sound of 2010 list and won the Guardian newspaper’s prestigious First Album Award 2010 for his debut album Lucky Shiner. 2013 sees the release of his highly anticipated second album, Half Of Where You Live.   Having spent downtime behind the counters of various establishments of ill-repute he consolidated the rest of his hours creating archives of electronic music. He poked his head into the world by way of a collection of instantaneously raved-about remixes, that quickly attracted the interest of various labels, blogs and taste makers, leading to requests for him to re-edit the likes of Telepathe, Bloc Party, Simian Mobile Disco, Health and The Field.   In the meantime, Gold Panda began culling his back-archive of material for a series of low key releases: the first was ‘Miyamae’, a 12” on Various, followed by the ‘Quitters Raga’ 7” on Make Mine, and the third, ‘Before’ was released digitally and on 250 limited CDs via Puregroove, all in 2009.   In October 2010 Gold Panda released his debut album Lucky Shiner. A culmination of years of work spent refining his sui generis sound, the record was released to huge critical acclaim, culminating in the Guardian First Album award the following year.   Since then he has been touring throughout the world, as well as releasing a DJ Kicks compilation in November 2011, and a handful of additional singles, including last summer’s ltd run Mountain / Financial District 7”.   Gold Panda began 2013 with the release of the Trust EP – the first full EP he’s released since his pre-Lucky Shiner days. That release was followed this summer by his aforementioned second album.   Half Of Where You Live is a stylistic and thematic advancement from his previous album, and the extensive touring that followed the success of Lucky Shiner has been a big influenced the record. It’s a travellers’ record in many respects, with track titles like ‘Brazil’ and ‘Enoshima,’ and the oriental sounding textures of ‘My Father In Hong Kong 1961’ and ‘We Work Nights’, indicative of Derwin’s often nomadic existence. “It was impossible not to be moved by the places I’ve seen and the people I’ve met,” he comments “I’m not sure I’d really travel that much if I wasn’t doing this.”
