VOICES OF BLACK
The thing about Voices of Black is that the two sing in unison over preprogrammed beats, except for the saxophone, which was used for the finale "Get Enough". The title track is from their forthcoming EP Get Enough, which is coming out October 20th on Notown Records.
Gold Panda didn't have any gimmicks, masked or otherwise, his setup was a rather large table with all the buttons and switches. Set included a mix of various singles and songs from Half Of Where You Live, particularly "Brazil" which played fairly early in.
Gold Panda spent his whole set hardly speaking and instead concentrating on keeping songs flowing in and out. That's what he's there for, keeping the dancefloor moving and with his mysterious button pushing and levels mixing. The younger audience loved it, clearly this was the perfect music for them to dance Friday night into Saturday without any breaks.
If you love dancing, this current Voices of Black, Slow Magic, and Gold Panda bill is perfect for you. All three are making their way across America ending mid-October, so you'll have at least one week to check them out live.
