Download:My Panda Shall Fly – Injury (Kool Clap Egyptian Bambatta Edit)

artist: My Panda Shall Fly
title: Sorry I Took So Long
label: Growing Records
My Panda Shall Fly (MPSF) seemed to appear from nowhere last year. The Sri Lankan-born visual artist and producer, armed with an alarmingly large beard and a bundle of compelling remixes, gained a lot of attention within the Dubstep and Future Bass communities: his rework of Pirate Sound System’s “Dub N U” was featured on the Pitchfork Forkcast and became an instant hit on the dancefloor, and grime godfather Terror Danjah (Hyperdub) used MPSF to turn his anthem “Air Bubble” into a dark, moody clicks ‘n cuts groove.

Besides, the self-confessed animal lover – growing up in a house of 15 dogs, 10 cats, lots of birds, fish, a turtle and a monkey – is one of the busiest DJs in town, spinning vinyl for the likes of Rinse FM and Off Modern, as well as playing across Europe from basement parties in Berlin and Vienna to Outlook festival in Croatia.

MPSF recently finished work on his debut EP, the politely named ‘Sorry I Took So Long’, a nod to having never recorded any material with the live electronics trio, which was My Panda Shall Fly in an earlier form. But it’s been well worth the wait: these three songs navigate the boundaries of Future Bass as we know it. “With my latest tracks I’m trying to explore something different. It’s still bass-heavy, but much slower and sparser than the classic wobble sound” the 23-year-old humbly states. But it’s much more than that.

So say fans and supporters such as Gold Panda, Vondelpark and Dam Mantle. The latter signed MPSF to his new imprint Growing (a sub-label of the mighty Witchita Recordings) where his EP has become the first non-Dam Mantle production to be released.

The EP kicks off with “Injury”, a synth-driven, percussion-heavy, effervescent slow burner with a slight Detroit feel. “Xerox” sounds like a baked Nintendo Gameboy gone astray at a South London warehouse party. Then “Yoyo” finally draws the curtain with a wobbly organ bass line pillowed against eccentric Dub-wise rhythms. The snare loses itself in echoes, the orchestra of sounds melt into silence – My Panda Shall Fly has taken off.

The package comes complete with a slew of remixes from UK bass producers, Throwing Snow (Notown/Eglo), Pirate SoundSystem (Heavy Warper/Wide), DoReMi (Longreach Collective/Growing Records), Nightwave aka 8bitch (Slit Jockey US/Seed) and Dam Mantle (Growing Records).”

Prommer & Barck-Alex And The Grizzly

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2011 by dk

Alex Barck, founder and member of Jazzanova and SonarKollektiv, has teamed up with his longtime friend the producer and musician Christian Prommer, member of Voom:Voom, Trueby Trio, Fauna Flash, who also produced DJ Hells album “Teufelswerk” for which he was nominated for the German “Echo” award. They were reunited by their passion for music, their hobby that became their lives and later their mission: good music for the world to hear. Their new project Prommer & Barck sees them return to the live stage and has spawned the delectable album ‘Alex And The Grizzly’.

Between them Prommer & Barck have had so many musical experiences and numerous discoveries – electronica, funk, dubstep, nu jazz, punk, wave, Chicago house, handmade music and soul. Those nights at clubs, the records, the shelves, the dirt in the second-hand record shops, the stacked audio- and studio magazines in their toilets or elsewhere in the house, the hours spent making their own radio-shows, hundreds of hotels checked in and out of, dozens of sound-checks done. Last but not least, the revivals, the subgenres, the fusion – the duo have been nothing less than prolific in their contributions across the years.

The songs on “Alex & The Grizzly” are inspired by their lifelong and concentrated quest for finer music and obsessions with the enthralling tiny details of deep tunes that bury deep under the skin and touch your soul. ‘Alex & The Grizzly’ feels like a homogeneous, modern-sounding and timeless album, but with its own informed perspective, which the duo like to call: ‘Earthboogie Dance` or `Deep Kraut Music’. Made over a period of less than 20 days, this may be proof the professionalism and clear artistic vision of these two masterminds. A spontaneous fusion, a mature work featuring both producers on vocals, esteemed guests (including Dollkraut, Kim Sanders, James Teej, Eva Milner (Hundreds), Sascha Gottschalk (Thief) and Uwe Karpa) with plenty of soul, ‘Alex & The Grizzly’ is a warm and inviting work that will win you over from the very first track and is bound to become a favourite springtime soundtrack.

The album is also being performed live, organically, on stage the musicianship goes hand in hand with their 20 years of DJ experience. The first live shows are already taking place in Berlin and will soon be travelling across the whole of Europe, with a summer highlight set to be their performance at the Worldwide Festival in Sete.

The album will be released on their newly found label: Derwin Recordings. The first single appeared in October 2010 on Permanent Vacation, followed by a second single on Best Works, another one on Hells label Gigolo. Further singles, as well as several remixes will follow on Derwin Recordings.

This is one of the most inspiring albums i’ve heard in a long time. It mixes an old skool sensibility with a futuristic approach to music. In short – I just love it from start to finish.” // Peter Kruder
