Today UK producer Gold Panda released his Trust EP digitally on Ghostly and will be releasing the four tracks on 12" vinyl March 4th (limited to 1,000). The artkwork was illustrated by Andy Gilmore. Furthermore, a new Gold Panda album will be released later this year.
Here's what the producer has stated inspired the new EP:
“The inspiration was just getting away from computers/laptops made my arrangements a bit more free and natural I think. Just jamming and looking out my window. Then taking a walk to see what I recorded, going back and copying the live arrangement. (Apart from Casyam_59#2 which is my mate showing me the sounds his Yamaha keyboard could make over a loop I made with a cheap Casio one). I think I’ve stripped out a layer of my music since [debut LP] Lucky Shiner, maybe it was feeling too cluttered, I think these tracks and the tracks for the new album have more space, but don’t feel empty.”
