Poolside Panda: Alfred English
(｡◕‿◕｡) Not all pool parties happen during the day—in fact, most unfold *:･ﾟ✧ after-hours *:･ﾟ✧ when the moon is high and regrets are low. Though previous installments of our summer-long Poolside Panda series have been bright and bubblegum—from Teen Witch Fan Club to Virtual Brat—our latest mixes have seen a darker shift to reflect our #NICOPANIC pre-fall '16 collection, now available online.
LA artist Alfred English, who's worked with everyone from Future to Waka Flocka, recently caught our attention with his two-track Needle Gala EP—an aggressive industrial release that, at times, sounds like a robot battlefield from the future. A labelmate to Nicopanda favorite Kai Whiston, English created an exclusive mix for us, spanning everything from throwback grindcore to '70s disco. Listen, below, for some fresh sunset sounds.
