About this item

It’s not too rare that an artist would be able to timeline their own personal experiences and growth via the records they release, but very few electronic artists have done it as emotively as Gold Panda. Album title The Work is both a literal statement of the record he took six years to make and deliver, and then, digging deeper, a revelation that it reflects just as much to how he arrived in this place now. The result is a rich album that exudes an assured calm and creative wonder with an artist who’s spent so long getting there


Barry says: It's wonderful to see Gold Panda return with 'The Work', brimming with feel good glitched groove and mpc-led hip-hop adjacent instrumentals. Blissful but with off-kilter melodic counterpoint to scuff the edges of the bright synthetic scree. Really beautiful, but tinged with meditative sadness.
