I’ve told anyone I’ve seen over the past month or so about The White Panda‘s mash-up album, Versus, but haven’t brought it up here. Tom Evans (aka Procrast) and Dan Griffith (aka DJ Griffi) are collectively known as The White Panda. Based on Versus, they certainly rank up there with E-603 and The Hood Internet when it comes to possible Girl Talk heirs. Versus showcases many pop/hip-hop seamless blends, not quite as layered as E-603 and Mr. Gillis, but perfect your next party.
The White Panda has been mostly releasing full portions of tracks from Versus to many fans appreciation, but they’ve also continued working on new material. Their latest, “Intergalactic Spell” brings together Beastie Boys and the under-appreciated Alphabeat (how was “Fascination” be ignored stateside?). Be sure to check The White Panda’s site for more new material.
Speaking of mash-ups, I should probably get started on Mashed-Up Vol. 4.
