It's nice to just do my hobby and be able to live.— Gold Panda
The most relaxing Gold Panda quotes that are glad to read
My uncle was a music producer and even he'd tell me to get a proper job.
I tried to get him to give me five grand to make an album - it didn't happen.
I have loads of stuff that never came out because I really don't think it's good enough.
I've been making music ever since, but it was never something I thought I could make any money doing.
I just got really desperate to pay rent.
It was weird, man. I had to wrestle a fake pussy off a crack head once.
I'm just really happy to be happy for the first time since I was about 20.
Maybe I should disappear and not make anymore music.
I mean, I think I'd take it really badly if I got slayed.
I've always had a problem with authority. I just can't wear a suit - it would kill me.
I was really into hip-hop as a teenager.
I dressed up like Tupac with baggy jeans and a dodgy bandanna around my head. I was pretty confused at that time.
I got fired once for putting like a packet of biscuits through a fan - I was really bored.
There's just so much stuff that sounds like Flying Lotus now - I really like what he does, but I don't want to be like him. The new stuff is more experimental.
I didn't have any intention of releasing any of the tracks I made.
I want to move away from sampling records and just have it be quite minimal.
I don't want any more hip-hop beats in there.
I usually find stuff that I hope no one really knows or cares about.
If I'm ripping off something that's already brilliant, what's the point?
I understand people have to go to work and earn money and bring up kids, but I always thought, "Why can't I just do what I want to do?"
I'm more confident in my music now because people are saying it's good - I'm trying to believe it, but it's very difficult. I don't know if it's going to end in disaster.
I'm a long way off finishing the LP, but I've got an idea in my head of exactly how I want it to look and sound.
