New Track: Gold Panda – “Thailand Chord Droner”


The dashing Gold Panda recently snuck a little tune called “Thailand Chord Droner” onto his Soundcloud. The sound is cinematic: part forest wanderer, part unicorn fantasy, and part drug induced haze. Put that all together and it’d make for quite the interesting film, no? Gotta love a song that tells a story!

Video: Jesse Boykins III – “Light To Dark”


[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

In August, we had the pleasure of sharing Jesse Boykins III’s all too lovable “Back Home” video. Most recently, Joshua Kissi of Street Etiquette and Jesse’s wildly creative camp of comrades has churned out a raw video for “Light To Dark.” Actually a style blogger and sartorialist of sorts, the plan for Josh to direct Jesse’s video started out as a joke. We gotta say, dude captured the mood quite fully. Props to both dudes.

In case you missed it the first time, enjoy the Gold Panda produced EP for free.

New Track: Onra – “A New Dynasty”


Onra has leaked the first single for his upcoming Chinoiseries Pt. 2. The track is an upbeat mash of sounds that are specifically and only Onra.

Sidenote. Imagine if Gold Panda and Onra got together, though – there would be problems. Great problems.

Gold Panda – “MPB” + MP3


Hailing from Chelmsford, Essex, Gold Panda has been stirring a steady buzz for the last couple years with his hard-hitting live shows and catchy, trancey hip-hop production. Per his admitted affinity for and study of Japanese culture, his tracks also often hold an air of Eastern instrumentation. His most recent single, “MPB,” premiered on The Fader about a week ago and showcases a fantastical blend of bright tropical sounds. Stream and download below! Look out for his US tour in October, too.
