Gold Panda and Special Guests Slow Magic & Voices of Black
Hailing from Chelmsford in Essex, but now located to Berlin, Germany, Gold Panda started writing beats and collaborating a few years ago, beginning a journey that ultimately saw him nominated in the BBC’s sound of 2010 list and won the Guardian newspaper’s prestigious First Album Award 2010 for his debut album Lucky Shiner. Since then Gold Panda has been touring throughout the world, as well as releasing a DJ Kicks compilation in November 2011, and a handful of additional singles.
