It’s been a while since I’ve heard music coming from the man known as My Panda Shall Fly, so it’s with great pleasure I announce the release of his new EP aptly titled “Sorry I Took So Long”.
I first came across My Panda Shall Fly when they were a 3-piece electronica band in their early stages and have been a fan of their more experimental sounds ever since. These days, Suren flies the MPSF flag solo, moving on from the ashes of the band to become a well known name on the East London party scene, playing sets in the Dubstep and Garage ilk. Finally bullying himself back into the studio, I am more than happy that Suren has returned to his more experimental electronica influences, drawing on them to create a deep and moving EP that holds plenty of his character in each song. “Sorry I Took So Long” is the kind of EP that you’d hear people saying either “I’d love to hear this on Acid” or “I hope I never hear this on Acid” about … either way, it’s moving, and in a very unique way.
Alongside the three original tracks come a slew of remixes from a strong list of up & coming artists. First up is Nightwave (previously known as 8Bitch) who brings a shuffling progressive rendition of “Injury” to the table. Second is Do Re Mi who takes “Injury” and turns it into a lo-fi Future-Garage number. Our good friend Throwing Snow steps up for the final remix of “Injury”, applying his signature sound and turning it into a more melodic dancefloor tune with some old-school house vibes. Dam Mantle takes “Xerox” on an 8bit blip / UK Garage / Dubstep influenced electronica journey that sounds like a slow ascent into space. And finally, Pirate Sound System turn “Yoyo” into a pounding carnival inspired 4×4 banger that I’m sure is going to do damage in the clubs.
