In the years since his first full-length album, the UK's Gold Panda has continued to bless us with a sprinkling of complex recordings overflowing with cut up ambient samples, all of it meticulously cobbled together with electronic glue. While the EPs, limited edition vinyl releases, and a storied DJ-Kicks comp have been pleasant, the real magic happens when Derwin Panda takes the stage to recreate all of his layers live. Crafting goosebump-worthy grooves, you'll lose yourself in the chilled, earthy beats as he casually puts the musical pieces of his mosaic together in front of your eyes and ears. Almost rivaling the main act's complexity and texture, Ghostly International labelmate Dauwd precedes Derwin with his slightly more conventional sound while PDX DJ Tan't spins before (as well as during and after, I'm sure).
Saturday, March 23, Holocene, 10pm, $12 advance, 21+
Listen to the title cut from Gold Panda's latest release, the 2013 EP entitled Trust, which is the first full EP he's released since before his widely acclaimed 2010 debut—and rejoice in the news that there's supposedly a second full length coming later this year.
