The music of Suren Seneviratne, aka My Panda Shall Fly, is sure to appeal to fans of the bruised, dreamy and slightly melancholy electronica of artists like Patten as well as those of the neon lit, sub-heavy and sugar-coated eclecticiscm of Hudson Mohawke and Rustie, among others.

Never puristic and always entertaining, the productions of the idiosyncratic British-Sri Lankan are generally friendly, quirky and mildly psychedelic.

Drawing inspiration from hip-hop, bits of electropop and slabs of classic house and UK garage, Seneviratne weaves strands of analogue melodies through his tracks, which are filled with simplistic but accomplished drum programming and weathered lo-fi textures and almost seem to emit an organic glow. An immersive, colourful shimmer which ought to make his show at PHONO one of the more interesting and engaging examples of alternative melodic bass music you’re likely to see.
