  • Gold Panda has mixed the next edition of DJ-Kicks, due out at the end of October. Derwin Panda (as he calls himself) is a producer by trade, not a DJ, and the upcoming compilation will be the first mix he puts his name on. "I'd never consider myself a DJ, but through doing this I've really become more appreciative of it," he says. "I've so much more respect for people that do DJ now." Despite his being new to the craft, the Essex-based artist managed to throw together a 22-track collection that jumps from deep house and techno to UK bass and back again. The mix also includes a new Gold Panda production, entitled "MPB." It will be his first official release since Lucky Shiner, an album he produced while dog-sitting for his grandparents that launched him to wide acclaim last year. Tracklist 01.
