My Panda Shall Fly (named after a day out at Alton Towers) is Sri-Lankan born artisan/beat-maker Suren Seneviratne. MPSF has been building up a varied arsenal of bass and electronics over the years, releasing music on Growing Records and on Five Easy Pieces alongside Benjamin Jackson.
Will Ward spends time making music in the band Circle Traps (the group that features members of London jazz group Portico Quartet) and is a fantastic producer in his own right. Keep your eyes open for some big moves from Ward in the New Year. For anyone uninitiated, go and dig out any of his remixes available at the usual spots.
The duos relationship began as an online collaboration and has now developed into personal working relationship in Portico Quartet’s studio on the outskirts of East London. Following the success of their collaborative EP on XVI Records we thought it’d be a great opportunity to get them on a Hyp Mix. They provide us with a slew of tough ‘riddims’ from all over the ages.
