Every song Gold Panda has shown from Half of Where You Live has been fantastic, and with one week until the sophomore album drops he's decided to offer up a stream of the whole thing. Streaming over at NPR, the LP is the producer's ode to the city, described as a "city album." For a visual sense of this, he has unveiled a video for the track "My Father In Hong Kong 1961." It focuses on the different aspects of life in Hong Kong, from busy streets to the food and culture. Watch it below.

[Listen] Gold Panda Announces New Album, Streams Lead Single "Brazil"

Gold Panda wowed me back in 2010 when he released his debut album Lucky Shiner. He wowed me again earlier this year with the Trust EP. I'm ready to be wowed again. Gold Panda will release his sophomore album Half of Where You Live on June 11th, and "Brazil" is our first taste.

The LP takes inspiration from experiences in Sao Paulo and London as well as Takashi Miike films. As for "Brazil," it's pretty impressive. Enticing, exotic instrumentation loops around the repeating words "Brazil," with the synthesized sounds building and fading effortlessly. I'm down for this. Check it out below.

[Album Stream] Gold Panda - 'Trust' EP

Gold Panda delivered a wonderful surprise this morning in the form of a brand new EP titled Trust. Having remained relatively quiet this past year or so, it's great to hear some new material from the UK producer. The EP is comprised of four mellow, downbeat instrumentals, and it's all available for your to stream or purchase digitally. Head over to Gold Panda's website to stream the EP, or you can hit up The Ghostly Store or Wichita Recordings to buy a digital copy.

Pre-orders are also available for the eventual 12" vinyl release of the EP, which will be out on April 3rd. Check out the tracklist for Trust below.

Trust EP:

[Listen] Gold Panda - "Mountain" & "Financial District"

After releasing numerous unofficial tracks and remixes over the past year or so, UK producer and beatmaker Gold Panda is back with a brand new single, the official follow-up to his debut LP Lucky Shiner. The new digital single "Mountain" and its b-side "Financial District" are described by the musician as being "modern hip-hop," going futher to say, “the 808 snares on ‘Mountain’ are a nod to Noah "40" Shebib and some-time Drake collaborators Boi-1da." Give both tracks a listen below (via FactMag). Both songs are now available digitally, with the physical release of the "Mountain" 7" single set for June 11th via Notown/Ghostly.

[Listen] Gold Panda - "4"

Similar to the instrumental track "Thailand Chord Droner" he dropped back in February, UK producer Gold Panda has let loose another random instrumental titled "4." Give it a listen below, and here's his explanation of how the track came to be:

a track I made on a korg es-1 in about 10mins and jammed out for my mate called “Infinite Livez” to freestyle on at a last minute gig/dj set thing in Berlin a while back and I hadn’t eaten much and also had to dj and I’m a shit dj but I just played a bunch of records anyway and Inf’ helped me out by freestyling for me. He’s a nice bloke and a great artist. I just made a cup of tea. Maybe I’ll invite him over."

[Listen] Gold Panda - "Thailand Chord Droner"

Gold Panda has taken to his Soundcloud page to let loose a brand new track titled "Thailand Chord Droner." Although there was no mention of the significance of the release, the artist threw in the names of different drum machines (“tr606/tr808/mpc2000xl fuk about") to get our thoughts churning or leave us confused. Either way, stream the track below.
