Gold Panda is a little worky ticket. He’s not put his name anywhere on this EP and the cover art is different to on the site so I sat through the first track trying to work out what it was and who it was by. Its a bloody good job that I liked it or I’d have been spitting feathers.
The opening track is a Fort Romeau mix with sizzling high hats, melancholic synths and a vaguely Italo-house thing going on. Its languorous, drifty and rather sun-dappled. Next up the original version which is much different but just as enjoyable. It features skirling synth, a repetitive vocal tic and long drawn out clarinet type notes, repetition as an art form. I’m enjoying the flip. There is a track called ‘If U Knew‘ which features said vocal crooned in a soulful manner over a twinkling housey track with some lovely spacey rim shots.
We then get two reworks of the same tune, a breathy slo-mo jam and a stripped-back rhodes piano heavy late nighter which turns out to be the album version. Despite the usual 12” issue of featuring the same tracks in numerous different versions, they were each different enough and of sufficient quality for me to brand this a successful run out.
