Ep. 268: Experiments In Tension, Pt. 3 – Death Of The Infinite Melancholy

When you don’t think you can go on any further, when all is broken and seemingly lost, you look at the pieces of what remains — it’s just you. And though you may not be what you once were, you came out through the other side. You’re here. You made it. The final installment of MrPanda‘s Experiments In Tension highlights this breakthrough. It’s a release. You’re letting go. And it’s almost defiant in its statement. Death Of The Infinite Melancholy is a 60 minute, harder-hitting Drum ‘n’ Bass mix for good reason. It’s a declaration of personal victory — one that came with scars and complex memories but a victory nonetheless. You can look back and see “there was light on the edge of the dark side.” And one final time you say, “So I let you go,” as you give yourself to the music…

Ep. 268: Experiments In Tension, Pt. 2 – One Step Forward Two Steps Back

Let’s waste no time and dive into Part 2 of MrPanda‘s Experiments In Tension episode. This 52 minute Liquid DnB mix is themed around cautious hope, the chemistry between 2 people and all of the energy that exudes. It’s beautiful and euphoric with a touch of the frenetic and sometimes chaotic. As such, it’s titled One Step Forward Two Steps Back and explores the fascinating dichotomy relationships bring. It feels as though MrPanda has tapped into something within all of us in this mix — something sublime, yet dire. And the music continues…

Ep. 268: Experiments In Tension, Pt. 1 – Loss & Rediscovery Of Self

Happy New Year, friends! We’re excited to embark on another year of great music together! To celebrate the occasion, we have the incredibly talented MrPanda (TheLostArt, Badwolf Entertainment) back on our airwaves for his 5th episode — an epic, deeply personal 3 part mix series entitled Experiments In Tension. The title stems from music theory, specifically in Jazz, where dissonance is used to create feelings of tension and release. It’s aptly named as these 3 mixes represent the ups & downs, ebbs & flows within relationships and strike an intensely personal chord with MrPanda himself. Part 1 is dubbed Loss & Rediscovery Of Self and features 60 minutes of energetic Liquid Drum & Bass tunes. It presents a path of rediscovering one’s self after loss and starting anew. We hope you join us on this spiritual journey. Filled with passion. Healing. And music…

Ep. 174: Seatbelt Not Included

You know that feeling you get when you’re slowly climbing the first massive incline of a badass roller coaster? The building anticipation as you peer down the steep angle of that huge drop? That’s what you’re about to experience in this week’s episode — and the man in charge of the ride is none other than incredibly talented MrPanda. Making his 4th appearance on the podcast, his skills are on full display in this 58 minute mix that was recorded live on 4 decks (can we get a “Damn, son!”). He starts us off gently with about 14 minutes of smooth Drum & Bass tracks before going full throttle with 44 minutes of Hardcore tunes that will kick your ass into high gear. We’d invite you to buckle your seatbelts but they’re not included with this one! Keep it loud!

Ep. 110: Fracus & Darwin – Diversions feat. MrPanda (Live)

We’ve got a badass treat in store for our listeners in this week’s episode! Our first back-to-back mix features THREE DJs — an internationally acclaimed duo and the return of one of our most popular local DJs.

Up first is the critically-acclaimed Fracus & Darwin with a tightly mixed set of their new, fourth artist album. Having been allowed total creative freedom in their approach, the result is a vibrant, varied, and passion-filled collection of tracks that go beyond Hardcore, and take influence from every corner of the rave spectrum. Their rise through the ranks to the main stages of the UK, USA rave scenes (and beyond) hasn’t been meteoric, with each passing year the high quality and variation of both their productions and live performances have earned them a hard-fought, slow & steady rise in popularity. With both a domestic and international fan base built up through extensive DJ dates and consistent productions, this is an album which will appeal most to those who enjoy a wide variety of influences. From euphoric vocal anthems, Electro and EDM-influenced sounds, rolling basslines and breakbeats, this is a true melting pot of rave music, all stamped authoritatively with 2015 production and style. It truly is the best Fracus & Darwin album yet (Hardcore Underground Ltd)!

That monster album is immediately proceeded by Dallas’ own MrPanda (from Ep. 084), who returns with another high-energy mix that will get your grandmother amped up! His last episode was one of our most popular and it’s not hard to hear why (if you’re not onto his work yet, get your ass over to his Soundcloud page and give him a follow). Hardcore, Breakbeat Hardcore and DnB are all flawlessly mixed into a perfect 65 minute package. Enjoy this special episode, party people! We know we will. Tune in and keep the music loud!

Ep. 084: Through The Looking Glass

The Dallas scene is currently flowing with burgeoning, eclectic musical talent. This week’s local guest DJ is a perfect example of this. MrPanda is our first Hardcore DJ and we couldn’t be happier to feature him. Tons of energy and get-up-and-jump jams are tightly mixed into a product that will be rocking your airwaves for the next 61 minutes! It’s a helluva good time! Time to take a peek through the looking glass…Tune in and keep the music loud!
