Gold Panda sound of 2010

Gold Panda is at longlist from bbc’s sound of 2010
Gold Panda is a left-field producer and remixer called Derwin who makes instrumental soundtracks to half-remembered, dreamy summer days. He scours charity shops for old records and VHS tapes to turn into distorted samples, and wraps them in minimal, warm beats.

He is obsessed with Japan and its culture, and once sold his entire record collection to pay for a Japanese diploma at the School of Oriental and African Studies, before moving there for a year.

Strong Arm Steady – In Search of Stoney Jackson

Posted in Beats, Electronic, Hip Hop on December 27, 2009 by E.N.

Strong Arm Steady – In Search of Stoney Jackson
Street Date: January 26, 2010
Advance digital release on

In Search of Stoney Jackson is produced entirely by Madlib, longtime friend of Phil Da Agony and extended Strong Arm Steady family. The album’s conception owes a great deal to World Famous Beat Junkie, J.Rocc, who provided the trio with close to 200 of the Madlib the Beat Konducta’s tracks to choose from. Strong Arm Steady had previously rapped over Madlib productions on the Madlib and Talib Kweli Liberation album, but this full-length marks a long-desired collaboration between the four. It’s a hip-hop jam session, with the group acting as the rhythm section for an all-star cast of guest vocalists such as Planet Asia, Guilty Simpson, Evidence, Chase Infinite, and Phonte of Little Brother.

Another Levon Vincent release, another title you don’t exactly want to bring home to Mom. Etched on the vinyl? “For Rebecca, a true athlete.” Ew. Mental pictures aside, though: Good for him. Everyone deserves a “Double Jointed Sex Freak” in their life once in a while. And it’s something that you won’t quickly forget. Much like the three parts here, in fact.

Double Jointed Sex Freak is remarkably physical, the A-side wrapping his trademark dubby beats in throbbing gristle and repeating “tsuuuuu” at an almost imperceptible level until you forget it’s even there. That “tsuuuuu” is pitched higher on Part II—the 12-inch’s highlight—which takes many of his signature sounds but adds a bassline that works in much the same way as The Mole’s “For the Lost” (i.e. it doesn’t come often, but when it does you find yourself emphatically pumping your fist for some odd reason). Coming after two big tunes, Part III can’t help but come as some sort of letdown. But although it pales in comparison, DJs who need another mix of these elements may find something of use.

The fascinating thing about those elements—the darkstar synths, the portentous dubby bubbles, the cleansing keyboard on Part II that marks the end of the introduction, etc.—is that there are so many that each part here can’t help but sound completely different—even though there is seemingly little changing from each to each. It’s a testament to Vincent’s arrangement skills and unique sound palette that he’s able to remix himself in such a way that each take is remarkably distinct.(RA)

Funki Porcini – Plod

Posted in Beats, Electronic, Experimental on December 27, 2009 by E.N.

Funki Porcini is artist and DJ James Braddell, whose swirling mixtures of downtempo breaks, smooth ambiance, and disjointed drum’n’bass helped put the Coldcut-owned, South London-based Ninja Tune label on the map. The first single from his 1995 Ninja debut, Hed Phone Sex, “Long Road” (with a B-side, “Poseathon,” littered with Bongwater samples) was featured on a number of compilations cashing in on the fashionability of “trip-hop,” but Porcini’s brand of laidback, atmospheric breakbeat is less gimmicky than that connection suggests. His follow-up to Hed Phone Sex, Love, Pussycats, and Carwrecks, is filled with jittery, jazz-laden drum’n’bass with a good dose of usually quite twisted humor. Braddell played North America with the Coldcut conglomerate DJ Food as part of the 1996 Unexploded Bomb tour, and has grown increasingly in-demand as a remixer, disorganizing tracks by everyone from Journeyman to the Mike Flowers Pops. His third album in total, Ultimately Empty Million Pounds, launched in 1999 and was soon followed by an EP, Zombie. Fans waited several years for more material from Braddell, though Fast Asleep finally appeared (after a lengthy delay) in late 2002. ~ Sean Cooper, All Music Guide

UNKNOWN / THRILLER – Swarm / Hubble

Posted in Dub Step, Electronic, Techno on December 26, 2009 by E.N.

The first installment in the Thriller series was easily one of our favourite 12″s of 2008, one of those records you could play to anybody into the good stuff and watch their jaw drop instantly. The shadowy collective have again surpassed all expectations with this second platter, shifting their palette from choice electro soul edits to crushed rave hop and psyched slow house delivering absolute dancefloor genius. We’d love to tell you who produced ‘Swarm’ on the A-side but we’re actually unsure ourselves, as we’re only informed with a few tantalising clues and as you’ll gather from listening to it, it really sounds like nobody obvious but trust us when we say the people behind these productions are about as sought-after as they come in 2009. Cleverly running on a deeply swung 120bpm pace, but mushed into a halftime shift, this cut is purely intensified rave goodness with a jagged hacksaw synthline sounding like the bastard offspring of Belgian New beat force fed Drexciya, Zomby and Rustie records. The energy on this track is compressed into a slow rolling juggernaut of immense heaviness that cannot fail to shock any dancefloor into next week. Beautifully contrasting with the controlled rage of the A-side is the sumptuous ‘Hubble’ on the flip, again operating on a devastatingly swung rhythmic function sounding equal parts Newworldaquarium, Kassem Mosse and Theo Parrish built by a set of hands and ears with a far wider scope than 99% of the rest of the crowd. Running at a lengthy 8 minutes this is one for the smokers, the cosmic cats and late night trippers to fill your boots with. Shockingly on-it wares – KILLER TWELVE!!!!!!!(boomkat,lsiten,buy here)

Reggie Dokes is an undisputed Detroit house heavyweight. In recent years he’s notched up a string of deeply involving releases for everyone from Prime Numbers and Philpot to his own Psychostasia Recordings. On this release he starts the new Clone Loft Supreme Series with two hustlin’ house cuts; ‘Chicago Pimp’ strutting it with tough drum patterns and hypnotic keys hinting at something a little more sinister, and the Afro-syncopations of ‘I Wear The Mask’ sounding uncannily alike Mujava or many of the UK Funky fellas but still unmistakably from Detroit. Smart tracks, check!@Boomkat HERE,listen,buy)
