Gold Panda - 'Reprise' EP

Album Info

  • Release Date: November 10, 2013
  • Label: Notown Recordings
7 / 10 This EP is essentially a victory lap for Gold Panda after the success of this year’s ‘Half Of Where You Live’ album. As such, it fits that these songs are both drawn out and sweaty, as well as a lot of fun. It features three versions apiece of album tracks ‘Community’ and ‘Reprise’. The originals you should know: ‘Community’ is propulsive tabla-backed techno; ‘Reprise’, semi-ambient electronic blues. ‘Community’ also appears in demo form and remixed by Fort Romeau – only of interest to Panda-philes – while ‘Reprise’ is given a hip-hop shuffle by T Hemingway. The real gem is Panda’s own ‘If U Knew (Reprise Long Live Take)’, which reimagines the original as a piece of reflective techno, more the soundtrack to staring out the window at the rain than a night out at Fabric.
