045 - Gold Panda (Miyamae EP)

There is little more to say than this EP is but another example of Gold Panda's ability to conflate interesting instrumental samples and strong beats. The first track of the release has been chosen for its characteristic use of distorted samples. Although spatially the track is quite full, it retains subtlety, restraint and composure, due to its tasteful and delicate treatment of piano and violin samples. Also, there's a lovely vinyl-sounding crackle that introduces another thin rhythmic layer.

P.S. Note the efficacy of this simple yet elegant cover:
