Lucky Shiner is the debut studio album by English electronic producer Gold Panda, recorded in his aunt and uncle's Essex home in 2010. It was released on 7 September 2010 on Ghostly International in the United States, while Notown Records released it on 12 October 2010 in the United Kingdom.
Whatever angle you examine it from, Lucky Shiner is an impressive statement, especially for a debut, and when Gold Panda lets the house beat sink into the background and experiments a little more with space and structure the results are gorgeous.
Gold Panda's mix of directness and emotion characterizes Lucky Shiner, an album of beat-driven electronic music that's easy to fall in love with, and to. In Gold Panda's world, vinyl-static beats and heart-on-sleeve melancholia collide, and the results are breathtaking.
So you've got some options. Whatever Ma and Pa actually christened him, the London producer first established his brand of hypermelodic electronic with his fuzzy, effervescent remixes for acts like Bloc Party and The Field and last year's Quitter's Raga EP for Make Mine. The nagging familiarity behind some of his compositions, though, is also Lucky Shiner's biggest flaw. When listening to the album, it's hard not to appreciate how so much of the record has been created in more texturally and melodically satisfying ways elsewhere. Gold Panda's least interesting when his reference points become too overt.
Armed with an ear for a skilful beat and an array of weird samples, it's a mixture the Peckham-born producer expertly facilitates.
