DJ Kicks

Fans of cuddly, home-listening indie electronica (like Four Tet or the bells-loving Pantha du Prince) will want to hear this lovely DJ set of headphone beat candy. The rising U.K. producer's grooves tease beguilingly (see Muslimgauze's dry-textured "Uzi Mahmood 8"), as do his instrumental touches: the pretty gliches of Melchior and Prosato's "Puerto Rican Girls," the danceing electric piano of Closer Musik's "Maria" and the blissed-out video-game noises of Zomby's "Godzilla." Kicking it all off is Gold Panda himself, with "An Iceberg Hurled Northward Through Clouds." It's got bells – or maybe a metallophone.
