I’ve been listening to Gold Panda’s album a lot recently. I saw him play a set at the opening of an art exhibition in Byker a few months ago, and I instantly fell in love. He produces this electronic music which is so wonderfully ambient that you get completely lost in it. It almost has a hypnotic feel to it. He spent years scouring charity shops and car boot sales for old LPs, VHS tapes, etc… which he’d use to take little soundbites from, to build a catalogue of tiny samples which he could mix alongside electronic beats. It gives the music so much depth. I like listening to it just before I go to sleep, when all the lights are off and I can just lie in bed and let the music consume me. Maybe you’d like to do that too. You can stream the whole album for free at http://luckyshiner.com/, and it’s only £5 if you want to download it.
