My Panda Shall Fly
Streets Of Beige start the year in fine form with a bass and garage special featuring UKG legends Sunship. With a backlog of incredible work that includes timeless solo material, and production credits from Mis-Teeq to Sweet Female Attitude, Sunship were true innovators in garage and bass, and their sound is still vital in 2012.
My Panda Shall Fly has a knack for digging forgotten and classic cuts alike, and he'll be putting this skill to work at his first ever Rhythm Factory appearance, as well as dropping some of his own fine production.
Another young support comes in the shape of BNRY, a fast-rising local with a production sensibility that spans staggered bass, Chicago house and Berlin techno, and whose live set hammers as hard as his studio work.
As resident and curator of GetMe, Lixo has hosted and played alongside a spectrum of talent including Trim, Marcus Nasty, Sampha, The XX, Sinden SBTRKT, Alex Nut, Oneman, Warrior Queen and tons more, as well as holding down heavy sets and residencies at many of London's key venues.
