One of the most consistent and pioneering musicians the UK has produced in the last decade. We could not be more pumped about this new album.

The story of Gold Panda’s journey from an acclaimed debut record to now, as he prepares to release his third full length album, is an entirely circular one. Hailing from Chelmsford Essex in the UK, in the six years since the release of his genre-defining debut album ‘Lucky Shiner’, the electronic artist most comfortable with the moniker Derwin Panda spent the subsequent years splitting the majority of his time between London, Berlin and countless excursions to Japan. As he created his third album ‘’Good Luck And Do Your Best’ he ultimately found himself back where he began, in the East of England.

"Halfway through the first trip we bought rail tickets and rode across the country and went to Hiroshima," Panda explained in a statement. "One afternoon we had taken a taxi, and as we got out, the Japanese taxi driver's parting words to us as we left, were 'good luck and do your best'. The interaction served as more than a simple album title, leading Panda to make a record that is "quite motivational, quite positive."

Whereas his second album ‘Half Of Where You Live’ was occasionally taut, perhaps harder and more piecing, the 11 songs that comprise ‘Good Luck And Do Your Best’ have a distinctly warmer palate, one that echoes ‘Lucky Shiner’ a little more, albeit with a clearer range of sounds, and also, to Derwin’s mind, one where “the tracks aren’t popping out against each other. It’s a [complete] record.”
