Gold Panda, aka British producer Derwin Dicker, released an album under his DJ Jenifa alias earlier this year but is now back with an official new GP single, "Transactional Relationship." The song is based around a sample of Hilary Woods’ “Sever,” which is from her 2018 album, Colt. “I made the track at home. I had a track nearly done and I’d bought the Hilary Woods LP after seeing her support Low at the Barbican and decided to give it a play during a tea break," says Dicker. "There were bits that went really well with what I’d made so I decided to chop parts up in my mpc and layered them over my track, thus ruining Hilary’s song for evermore. I did a sort of ‘live take’ and that was it.” You can watch the video for "Transactional Relationship" below.

You can catch Gold Panda in the U.S. this fall where he'll play as part of Ghostly Records 10th Anniversary events in Los Angeles (The Regent Theatre on 9/26), San Francisco (The Midway on 9/28), and Brooklyn's Elsewhere on 10/5 with Shigeto, Beacon, Heathered Pearls (DJ), Ouri, The Sight Below, Logan Takahashi, Lord RAJA (DJ), Starchild & The New Romantic (DJ), Matthew Dear (DJ), Galcher Lustwerk (DJ), Ciel (DJ), Michna (DJ), and Xeno & Oaklander (DJ).
