Biography

Gold Panda™s journey has been a long and intermittently strange one. Initially, the Essex, UK artist spent his day-job time behind the counters of various houses of ill repute—adult bookstores, record shops—finding that the two were equally seedy. He spent the rest of his waking hours building up a library of original, dizzyingly eclectic electronic music incorporating a disparate mix of influences and source material. The results were gleaming instrumental hip-hop tracks saturated with bright colors and sublimely chopped-up vocal samples. Thus, Gold Panda was born.

Having built up a sufficient volume of music, Gold Panda began leaking remixes to various labels, blogs, and tastemakers, all of whom instantly took notice. More remixes—for the likes of Little Boots, Telepathe, Bloc Party, Simian Mobile Disco, HEALTH, and The Field—followed. Soon, he began releasing his own tracks, including the “Miyamae” 12” on Various, the acclaimed “Quitters Raga” 7” on Make Mine, and the “Before” digital single on Puregroove. In 2010, Gold Panda released the You EP, Lucky Shiner and the “Snow & Taxis” single.
