Simian Mo­bile Disco and Golden Panda en­ter into a ma­ture li­ai­son

In years of yore, the pair­ing of Gold Panda with Simian Mo­bile Disco’s Jas Shaw might have brought forth bliss­ful bangers, but – in a sim­i­lar sub­tle, hyp­notic vein to SMD’s gor­geous re­cent work on Mur­mu­ra­tions and Der­win Sch­lecker’s low-key, bright Good Luck And Do Your Best from 2016 – their col­lab­o­ra­tion as Sell­ing is lu­mi­nously min­i­mal. Evolved from a spon­ta­neous meetup, it has an or­ganic, un­forced feel, in­sin­u­at­ing rather than stat­ing it­self with force through the subtly shift­ing rhythms on “Qprism” and the hints of Har­mo­nia on the warm, chim­ing “Keep­ing Txme”. On Re­flec­tion can’t make any grand claims to orig­i­nal­ity, but charms with its clar­ity and light.
