The latest releases from Gold Panda and Flume show another resurgence of big beats and liquid vibes; distorted vocals atop unashamedly glossy synths to create a sound that shimmers and teases. ‘Ready’ comes as the first track off Tiger Tsunami‘s (Christian Parker) *just released* Summer Days EP, and aptly sets users up for 5 tracks that any of us would welcome listening to in the sun.

Parker’s style is polished, and utilises acoustic within the electronic, bringing nostalgic vibes to modern production. Some his more ethereal tracks nod to the dystopian style so well pioneered by Clams Casino, yet instead of leaning the user towards a more introspective listening experience, Parker encourages euphoria.
