Last year, Procrast (Tom Evans) and DJ Griffi (Dan Griffith), the Chicago based mash-up DJ duo known as The White Panda, were listed among the top five most played artists on Soundcloud.
It is no wonder the dynamic duo has won the popularity of such a large audience due to their ability to mix what some might deem as the unmixable. They are the musical equivalent of the tasteful cohesiveness of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Something about it just works.
For example, “Bittersweet Donald” blends The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” instrumental with the rap flow of Mac Miller. This past spring the duo released their fourth EP, Bambooyah! Take a listen for free by clicking the player below.
The guys even release a new track just about every Monday on what they have coined as “Mashup Mondays.” TWP will take the stage on the afternoon of Saturday, September 1st from 12:00-1:00 at EZoo’s Hilltop Arena. Tomorrow we will profile a standout DJ who is not quite new to the scene and is literally a part of the Fool’s Gold family.
