Gold Panda - Snow & Taxis

Ever since we first laid hands on Gold Panda’s Before CD last year, we’ve been pretty convinced that his jittery spectrum of minimalist electronic glitch-techno is of the highest order. His next single - Snow & Taxis taken from forthcoming album Lucky Shiner (apparently named after his grandmother) seals the deal. Sounding like tinkerbell going to the disco Snow & Taxis has a hushed hop-skippity winter-based dance flow that works as well as home as it does on the more intelligent dance floors. This is seems in keeping with Gold Panda's recent announcement in respect of the album that "I didn't want bangers, I wanted songs with structure."

After his final UK festival appearance for the year at Green Man, Gold Panda aka Derwin, the Japanese culture obsessed hooded geekoid, will be flying stateside for a lengthly tour where America can witness his blend of knob-twiddling laptop-bobbing fun. Here's Snow & Taxis.
