U.K. electronic producer Gold Panda will release a 7″ single via Ghostly International on June 12, but the tracks featured on the single are available digitally today. You can stream “Mountain” and “Financial District” below.
In a press release, Gold Panda, aka Derwin Schlecker, explains that the 808 snares heard on “Mountain” are a nod to producer Noah “40″ Shebib and frequent Drake collaborator Boi-1da. While the songs have elements of cloudier, ethereal hip-hop at play, they both remain Gold Panda tracks: hazy, meandering, thoughtful electronic music.
The Berlin-based producer will be hitting the road this year, bringing his skittering beats stateside, with stops at Detroit’s Movement Festival and San Francisco’s FYF Festival. Check out the tour dates below.
