GOLD PANDA: Back Home.

 A great video for an even better song.


Video cut together from found public domain footage... just like the track.

Gold Panda's a producer and remixer who makes instrumental soundtracks to half-remembered, dreamy summer days. He scours charity shops for old records and VHS tapes to turn into distorted samples, and wraps them in minimal, warm beats.

He's obsessed with Japan and its culture, and once sold his entire record collection to pay for a Japanese diploma at the School of Oriental and African Studies.

Can't stop listing to it so I supose it's bound to have an imapact on my artwork! Fits in with my chosen theme of Journeys very nicely too!
