the new four track EP from Norwich based electronic producer Jamie
Robson aka Magic Panda. Previous work has been remixed by Max Cooper
(topping the Beatport charts) and played by Tom Ravenscroft, Laurent
Garnier and Hernan Cattaneo. He has supported Portico Quartet, Luke
Abbott and Mount Kimbie, as well as playing his own headline shows in
the UK, France, Spain and The Netherlands.
from a 3 year hiatus, Cloud FForest EP is a collection of epic,
expansive tracks, at times brooding and contemplative and at others
propulsive and energetic. Magic Panda weaves synths, choirs, pads,
bells and textures to create ethereal, otherworldy soundscapes laden
with majestic, rousing melodies.
Magic Panda assimilates a
wide range of influences, from the delicate 'plinkerpop' of Morr
Music's Herrmann and Kleine, through the sonic experimentation of
Border Community to the more cinematic progressive soundscapes of
GYBE, Mono, MBV and Sigur Ros. Magic Panda's sound exists in the
peripheries of a range of sub genres spanning techno, progressive
house, shoe-gaze, post-rock, electronica and ambient.
has released and performed as Magic Panda since 2011 and has had
several releases on Kid606's Tigerbeat6 as well as Knopje, Silenced
and Maripoza. He is currently putting the final touches to a new live
set to showcase his latest work.

independent record label and events organiser focussing on pioneering
