    Artist: Magic Panda
    Album Title: Tokyo
    Catalogue Number: meow193
    Label: Tigerbeat6
    Release date: Oct 22nd
    Format: Digital EP

    Magic Panda creates ethereal and energetic electronic compositions, peppered with broken percussion and wistful melodies which swirl around a warm techno pulse and Tokyo is the perfect embodiment of this aesthetic.

    Tokyo is a bold statement of intent showcasing the future direction Magic Panda is heading in. It is a beautiful, shimmering and propulsive merging of Border Community inspired techno and understated Lo-Fi-but-not-lazy shoegaze energy.

    It is the first single from his forthcoming full length Tigerbeat6 Album "Temple of a thousand lights" and includes a stellar collection of remixes from Max Cooper, Kid606, Groj, Lanny May, Defled, and Mary Yalex.

    2011-12 has seen Magic Panda developing his studio sound and live set up and he has enjoyed high profile concerts in the UK and across Europe, playing alongside the likes of Luke Abbott, Ricardo Tobar, The Portico Quartet, Mount Kimbie and DMX Krew.

    First up on remix duties is none other than Max Cooper (Traum / Herzblut.) Max puts to work his unique blend of glitch-fused techno on 'Distant Places' , taking listeners on a melancholic journey through light and dark spaces. Kid606 steps things up with a 110 bpm high energy rework of Tokyo that strips the original of it's four on the floor pulse in lieu of a more laid-back 808 hip-hop groove.

    Canadian artist Groj (Traum, Manual Music, Proton Music, and Zaubernuss) slows things down with his psychedelia-tinged interpretation of Tokyo, sparse percussion and swirly analog synths abound in this haunting sonic adventure.

    Berlin-based Lanny May (Manual, Cinematique, Maripoza, Back Home) picks up the tempo with his pulsating remix. He deconstructs Tokyo in a sea of reverb and saturates it with his recognizable fusion of asymmetric rhythms and synths.

    The EP is wrapped up nicely with two remix's of "A perfect circle"; A Haunting rework by Mallorcan producer Defled and a beautiful minimalist reconstruction by Mary Yalex.
