Our bros White Heat are turning 7 years old this summer and to celebrate we're joining them in throwing a party curated by the marvellous Gold Panda, featuring three beacons of UK electronica.

GOLD PANDA

Gold Panda consists of Essex boy Derwin, a producer who has also remixed tracks by the likes of Bloc Party, Health, Simian Mobile Disco and many more, all of which have been gained much acclaim by critics, blogs and music lovers akin. His music is championed as being an organic breed of electronic that’s not quite dance or flash-in-the-pan enough to only be heard on dance floors, although live is where it takes on it's need for large speakers and full attention, whilst making heads nod and shoes move. Derwin’s adoration of all things Japanese have also heavily influenced his hazy and surprisingly emotional sounding songs released on YouEP from earlier this year. A perfect soundtrack to these long summer days.

MAX TUNDRA

Ben Jacobs, or Max Tundra as he is more commonly known, is a British musician who mixes electronic noises with a whole host of other instruments and styles to create some pretty special songs. Having released material since 1998, Max Tundra has a substantial discography under his belt, released on Domino Records.  Over time Tundra has become something of a cult figure, amassing fans a-plenty through his adventures around the globe. He recently announced on his Twitter account in June that his next album, Parallax Error Beheads You, may well be his last. He plays here as a special guest of Gold Panda's.

DAM MANTLE

DAM MANTLE

Known to his family and friends as Tom Marshall - Dam Mantle is a fresh young innovator from Glasgow making progressive electronic sounds to make you cry, move erratically or smile a mile wide. Live he's joined by another and has recently wrapped up a tour with fellow new music compatriot Gold Panda. Mantle’s glitchy “poems” seem to want to bridge the gap between the usual alienation of electronic music and the mainstream pop music of yore – y’know, when pop songs actually MEANT something.(Line Of Best Fit). Dam Mantle, seems to embrace an amiably all-over-the-map compositional style, EP cut "Rebong" is an exceptionally groovy slice of glitch-hop, with a harp sample not unlike something Flying Lotus would use.
