It’s been some time since we’ve heard from Derwin Schlecker, the playful British dance producer generally known as Gold Panda. Three years in the past, Schlecker launched “Transactional Relationship,” the final Gold Panda single. It’s additionally been three years since he launched Jag Trax, the album that he recorded below his DJ Jenifa alter-ego. The final Gold Panda album got here out even longer in the past; we haven’t gotten a kind of since Good Luck And Do Your Finest in 2016. However there’s one other new Gold Panda album coming this yr, and we’ve acquired a brand new single at this time.
The brand new monitor “I’ve Felt Higher (Than I Do Now)” lock proper again into that previous Gold Panda sound. It’s acquired the producer chopping up heat, dusty samples and locking them into a quick, energetic beat. It really works as springy endorphin-rush temper music, and it guarantees extra good issues to come back. Right here’s what Schlecker has to say concerning the monitor:
I made this when my daughter was two years previous and I felt knackered and I’d turned 41. The samples simply got here collectively and seemed like “I’ve felt higher…” and on the identical time I used to be taking a look at my anti-depressants feeling drained and simply thought “ha, that’s proper!”
I mess with chopping up samples till I get an attention-grabbing loop, so I by no means got down to write a monitor; I’m led by the samples after which go from there. Funnily sufficient, my life now is definitely approach higher than it was 10 years in the past and I’m a bit more healthy and I most likely truly do really feel higher on the whole (aside from after I had that mind haemorrhage final yr).
