Ideally suited to soundtrack über-hip coffeehouses, the work of Berlin-based Gold Panda recalls forebears like DJ Shadow in his propensity to loop hypnotic snippets of dialogue atop mildly booty-shaking beats. The DJ and producer's sophomore album, Half of Where You Live, draws from his recent international travels for inspiration in both selecting song titles ("Brazil," "Enoshima") and pushing the boundaries of his ambient electronica sound in a world-music-nodding direction. With Luke Abbott. 18+.
