Gold Panda
Just to make it better
Last year’s Lucky Shiner was one of the records, where the Beat-enthusiasts, the Caribou-listener and the electronic nerd come together sharing the headphones. Since then Gold Panda is on the move, releasing an EP here and there, collecting old material for the fans and working on new stuff, and moving to Hamburg.

With emphasis on We
We Jazz, that stands for edgy, surprising jazz from the north. And also not. Since 2013 the festival has been held in Helsinki, since 2016 the label was founded. Matti Nives mainly publishes Finnish bands there. And acts as one of the most important networkers of the local scene.
