My Panda Shall Fly and Benjamin Jackson "JS8"
London residents My Panda Shall Fly and Benjamin Jackson have put together a collaborative EP, which dropped last week via the Five Easy Pieces imprint under the apt title Let's Vibrate Together (artwork above). Here, we have the EP's second offering, a surprisingly warm head-nodder that folds Asian harp samples, buzzing arpeggios, and sun-kissed chords on top of some deliciously heavy drum programming. While the aforementioned elements may lead one to believe that "JS8" is simply a piece of summery electronics, don't be fooled—this tune definitely has its footing securely in the street-wise side of beatmaking, but its creators somehow still cleverly infuse the track with a memorable chord progression and touches of friendly sonics. After giving "JS8" a spin, you can peep the release's full tracklist (which includes remixes from Cloud Boat, Chairman Kato, and Patten) after the jump.
