After Gabriel & Dresden dropped their newest bomb, a lot of us were left wondering who their accomplices were in the credits. It was them versus Secret Panda Society, a Baltimore-based bass beats bunch (say that three times fast). Rob Stern and Joe Benny “ensure that no song is being safe from being morphed into a dance floor destroyer” (their words, not mine). That being said, I was suckered into checking them out.
There’s a reason G&D picked these guys to augment their progressive tune with some dirty bass. London’s Calling, a recent single, is bass music to the core, combining all the elements of British bass-pop into a danceable burner. So Lost goes deeper with hard, driving drumstep and reggae grooves. If there’s any doubt that SPS is capable of topping today’s best, that should all be gone. Be sure to check these guys out at our SXSW party happening next week if you’re going to be in the Austin area!
