Gold Panda - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Gold Panda
Gold Panda is an electronic musician from Chelmsford in the United Kingdom living and working in London.

Gold Panda’s journey has been a long and intermittently strange one. Initially, the Essex, UK artist spent his day-job time behind the counters of various houses of ill repute—adult bookstores, record shops—finding that the two were equally seedy. He spent the rest of his waking hours building up a library of original, dizzyingly eclectic electronic music incorporating a disparate mix of influences and source material. The results were gleaming instrumental hip-hop tracks saturated with bright colours and sublimely chopped-up vocal samples. Thus, Gold Panda was born.

Having built up a sufficient volume of music, Gold Panda began leaking remixes to various labels, blogs, and taste-makers, all of whom instantly took notice. More remixes—for the likes of Little Boots, Telepathe, Bloc Party, Simian Mobile Disco, HEALTH, and The Field—followed. Soon, he began releasing own tracks, including the “Miyamae” 12” on Various, the acclaimed “Quitters Raga” 7” on Make Mine, and the “Before” digital single on Puregroove. In 2010, Gold Panda has released the You EP—featuring remixes from Osborne, Seams, Dam Mantle, and Minotaur Shock—on Ghostly International.
Dam Mantle - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Amidst a genre growing exponentially with each passing week, Tom Marshallsay’s music stands apart with a distinct Technicolor sound palette and a rich seam of raw musicality running through it. Marshallsay’s previous exploits are rooted in post rock and experimental folk; the echoes of these bleeding into Dam Mantle, an entirely electronic project he dove into as 2009 came to an end. His songs are infused with a love of music far broader than the niche he now inhabits.
