From the UK via Berlin, Gold Panda is one of the unique stars in electronic music. Gold Panda's reputation began as a remixer du jour he has worked with the likes of Bloc Party, Simian Mobile Disco and HEALTH, and draws comparisons to contemporary Four Tet.

"In sonic terms, Gold Panda breathes the same kind of life into his work as Four Tet. His beats are mechanical but also intensely human." Pitchfork
But with Gold Panda's 2010 debut album on Ghostly International, Lucky Shiner, new ground was found. This collection incorporated multitudes of styles and influences to create a glitchy electronic sound with pop tendencies. His sound layers obscure samples, glittering melodies and deconstructed hip-hop beats with dreamy, oriental textures.
Gold Panda begins 2013 with the release of the Trust EP - the first full EP he's released since his pre-Lucky Shiner days. That release will be followed later in the year by his second album.
His last Australian tour saw him sell out the Sydney Festival Hyde Park Barracks festival bar. So get ready for a small and intimate show like you've never seen before!
Melbourne's Fox & Sui of the Two Bright Lakes label will be in support with their live show and Prize of the legendary Space Is The Place parties will be master selector.
