[New Music] Gold Panda - Companion

Before Gold Panda unleashed Lucky Shiner in all its nostalgic, sample-stuffed glory, the UK producer woodshedded, quietly releasing a series of EPs. Even then, the hallmarks of the Gold Panda sound—static-y slices of recontextualized sound, soul-stirring chord changes, an air of heavy-lidded melancholia—were in place. For Companion, we’ve compiled three of Gold Panda’s early 2009 EPs ( Before, Miyamae, and Quitter’s Raga) along with one non-EP track (“Police”) into a seamless listening experience, a journey into the heart of one of the finest beat-based musicians around.
