Gold Panda – DJ-KicksPosted: September 15, 2011
Since i remember to listening to electronic music, DJ-Kicks series have been following me…. it’s like a reference that i try to keep dragging and also a way to discover amazing artists! Plus, !k7 have always been one of my favorite records. You can be sure that everything they are about to release is going to be good. If you want to keep listening to quality music, you just have to follow their lead!!!
When i heard Gold Panda was about to release a DJ-Kicks pack, i was a little bit surprised, but also very happy about this because it is going to show his personal perspective. Of course nowadays it’s very common to mix several genres on a dj set, but it’s also true that Gold Panda’s music is different from the rest….
From Chelmsford in Essex, but a resident of East London, Derwin appeared in the corner in the late 00’s. His main influences are electronic experiment from the late ’90s as teenager. Turning into something between Dj Shadow and Four Tet, he conquered his space side by side these guys. Well, you know these things happen all the time, or not. What does it sound like? One writer claimed that: “He intuitively mixes lop sided, chopped up hip hop style beats with a gorgeous refined melodic techno sensibility creating a fresh cross genre sound that’s distinct and accomplished.” Which sounds pretty good, so let’s go with that. Derwin has been also producing cool remixes, always giving his personal feelings.
This kind of beats have been growing on me and makes me feel more interested to meet new people producing good music with another perspective. Believe me, while i’m writing this post in completely lost in this music.!k7 will release Gold Panda’s DJ-Kicks on October 31st.
