I posted about Gold Panda a while back when he released “You,” a blissed-out instrumental jam, and since that time I’ve been anxiously waiting to see which direction the UK producer would go in next. It’s clear that with “Snow & Taxis,” the first single off their debut LP Lucky Shiner, that direction is up. Like, way up. Nothing too complicated here, just a genuinely well-crafted instrumental track with a catchy drum pattern, warm synths, and some nice chimes that tie the song up in a nice little bow. Unwrap it for yourself.
I’m aware that was incredibly cheesy of me. Sorry I’m not sorry.
