My Panda Shall Fly
Fresh out of his Fine Art degree, Sri-Lankan-born visual artist and producer Suren Seneviratne chucked a debut EP at Dam Mantle’s Growing Records & Wichita Recordings, and soon snapped up support from the likes of Pitchfork, Dazed Digital and Clash Magazine. With this power came great responsibility, in the form of slick remixes for The Weeknd, Fink, Psychologist, Little Boots and a collaborative 12” release with Benjamin Jackson. With no musical background whatsoever, he’s proved the naysayers wrong with a whole lot more tricks up his sleeve, including a soon-to-drop six-track Tropical concept album. He’s dubbed his style “Sun-kissed Tibetan crunk meets Nu-Wave Disco beat. Or Soul.” And you know Tibetan crunk means business.
