– Drops new standalone single,
– Track samples Hilary Woods’ track “Sever”
– Out now via City Slang
Gold Panda has dropped a new standalone single, entitled “Transactional Relationship,” available worldwide via City Slang.
The new track was made using a sample from Hilary Woods’ track “Sever”, taken from her 2018 album for Sacred Bones, ‘Colt’. Gold Panda elaborates saying: “I made the track at home. I had a track nearly done and I’d bought the Hilary Woods LP after seeing her support Low at the Barbican and decided to give it a play during a tea break. There were bits that went really well with what I’d made so I decided to chop parts up in my mpc and layered them over my track, thus ruining Hilary’s song for evermore. I did a sort of “live take” and that was it.”
“Transactional Relationship” is the first new music from Gold Panda since 2016’s EP ‘Your Good Times Are Just Beginning’, the final element to his album earlier that year, ‘Good Luck And Do Your Best’ – also released via City Slang. The album set also included the ‘Kingdom EP’ and a photography book shot by award-winning photographer Laura Lewis during travels in Japan that heavily inspired the album.
Since ‘Good Luck And Do Your Best’ Gold Panda has launched a collaborative project with Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco under the name Selling, releasing their debut album ‘On Reflection’ via City Slang in 2018, and also self-released a full record of house and hip-hop influenced tracks under the name DJ Jenifa, entitled ‘Jag Trax’.
Gold Panda is currently in the studio working on a follow-up Selling record, as well as more Gold Panda music.
