Everyone, freak out. At least that’s what I did at 6AM when I saw the tweets trickle in about Gold Panda‘s remix of “Sadness is a Blessing” by Lykke Li.
I clicked, I listened, I fawned. And now, I’m here to break my unintentional Autostraddle hiatus to share it with you.
Gold Panda is a talented British producer whose debut album, Lucky Shiner, topped my listen of Favorite Albums of 2010. Add his organic, mellow dance touch to Swedish indie-singer Lykke Li’s ironically upbeat downer from her new album, Wounded Rhymes, and the result is one of my favorite remixes of 2011.
