The White Panda formed when two boyhood friends discovered they had independently embarked on mashup careers in college. Chicago-based Procrast (Tom Evans) first blended Rick Astley snippets with 2 Live Crew grooves as a way to avoid productive activity in 2008, while DJ Griffi (Dan Griffith) embarked on the same mission, for a similar purpose, in L.A. Their combined effort, the White Panda, launched in 2009 with a single that topped internet radio charts days later.
Buzz from the duo's first three albums, "Versus," "Rematch" and "Pandamonium" saw The White Panda soar into Soundcloud's top five most-played artists in 2011. They've toured alongside Mac Miller, Mike Posner, Wale and Ghostland Observatory - and shared the stage with Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Steve Aoki, and Lupe Fiasco.
"Bambooyah!" their fourth full-length release, debuted in March ahead of a spring 2012 tour. This summer, the duo played Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo, and Bamboozle before headlining a fall tour across the U.S. and Canada.
"Mashup Mondays" are the group's signature release style, putting out a new track almost every week for their fans. All of Panda's music, from their first track to their most recent, is available for free download on their website.
