What a glorious song! UK tall guy electronic producer Gold Panda has signed to Ghostly and his debut album Lucky Shiner is out October 12th. "Snow and Taxis" is the album's first single and he did not pull any punches. Or rather, he decided to not throw punches but to put daisies in the gun barrels. A heavy, wordless chorus, tons of tiny little bells, regional dance music drums, clipped strings, piano. It's collage as much as it is techno or whatever, who knows, it's dance music, maybe, it's not really idm (wtf) though. It's not post dubstep or lovestep or dub or two step or a stepper's anthem (Kels!) or jungle or tropical or anything. It's real nice, though. Really nice! Put your email in that funny "click here" thing to download.
