    Gold Panda seems most interested in the former on his DJ-Kicks mix, keeping the dynamics understated, but the results are consistently interesting, melodic, and effective.

    The self-confessed non-DJ plays stylishly to the dancefloor's edge, flirting a little with the background before headline interjections from Bok Bok, Untold and 2562 yank you back to centre square.

    And it does seem that way here[on this album], that Gold Panda has made some kind of discovery that will be looked back on in a few years time as a defining statement to the turning tides of dance music extravagance.

    A shimmering DJ compilation which sounds a bit cerebral, all in all.

    Fans of cuddly, home-listening indie electronica ... will want to hear this lovely DJ set of headphone beat candy.

    London's electronic wunderkind explores just about every other avenue in post rave dance music. [jam 2012, p.123]

    All totally fine, of course, but next time a little passion and personality won't go amiss. [Jan 2012, p.103]
