This week's new music #2

My Panda Shall Fly - Injury (remixed by Darling Farrah)
MPSF consists of Sri Lanken(er), Suren Senerviratne, who was originally acknowledged for his remix of Pirate Soundsystem’s ‘Dub N U’. He braces the DJ decks at night after his 9-5 graphic design job at LuckyPDF. He’s supported by Gold Panda and Vondelpark, works on remixes with Terror Danjah and plays for Off Modern. Beautifully reworked dub and electronic sounds result in repeated listens. Download the track and listen to his debut EP, ‘Sorry I took So Long’. Who knows what else we’ll see coming from underneath that beard of his in the next couple months...


Curren$y ft Prodigy - The Type
Curren$y doesn't need an introduction, he's been around since 2002 making hip hop beats. His recent collaboration with Prodigy proves his masterful ways with rhythm, vocals and lyrics.


Jai Paul - BTSTU
Following Jai Paul’s demo of BTSTU last March, the song appears in its finished form via XL Recordings. Melodic vocals riding big drum claps and synth riffs are things that shouldn’t necessarily work together...but it somehow does. Although it’s not that far off the original, the extra detail thrown in makes the quality of the track a whole load better. His debut album will be released later this year.


Shabazz Palaces
They've been around for a while now but in the next couple months, they’ll be everywhere.... Seattle avant-rap Shabazz Palaces are blood relatives of Gonjasufi and a group happy to work in dark and mystical conditions. The rap here isn’t upbeat, but cold and harsh, coupled with irregular drums, and synths appearing from nowhere as voices interrupt each other. They’re signed to Sub Pop, and if you haven’t heard them before, now’s the time to immerse yourself in this visceral, powerful stuff.
