Coming from a formal Fine Art background, My Panda Shall Fly went on to release his debut EP on Dam Mantle's Growing Records & Wichita Recordings - which saw incredible support from the likes of Pitchfork, Dazed Digital, Clash Magazine, XLR8R, The Fader, The Independent, Dummy Mag & more. Following that came an onslaught of incredible remixes for the likes of The Weeknd, Fink, Psychologist, Terror Danjah & Little Boots.
