Following the
release of his acclaimed 2010 debut LP ‘Lucky Shiner, Gold Panda has announced
a new 7″: ‘Mountain/Financial District’. In North America and mainland Europe,
the 7″/digital versions comes out on Ghostly International while Gold Panda’s
own label NOTOWN will release it in the UK. The digital version drops on
May 14th/15th while the 7″ version is available June 11th/12th. You can check
out a stream of each track here:


Mountain by Gold Panda

Financial District by Gold Panda



Gold Panda calls the
material “modern hip-hop,” adding, “the 808 snares on
‘Mountain’ are a nod
to Noah “40” Shebib and some-time Drake collaborators Boi-1da.
‘Financial District,’ at 125 bpm, though actually feels slower than that
because the drum machine pattern on it has a completely different feel. It’s in the rhythms
that I depart from that
initial hip-hop idea.” Of the songtitles, he notes, “Listening to ‘Mountain’
again on a trip to Japan over New Year, we flew directly over Mt.Fuji and it
seemed to just fit what I was seeing out of the window. ‘Financial District’
was just the opposite of the vast expanse of the mountain I guess. Crowded,
synthetic and shiny… repetitive – and of course both can erupt at anytime.”
