The White Panda
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.
Their first free album, “Versus”, slipped onto stereos just before 2010 dawned. Critics lauded the guys as pure sonic collagists for accelerating the reverberating nature of contemporary pop music. By harnessing the sounds of the moment before they become everyday tunes, the White Panda changed—and changes—the way listeners grasp the musical landscape.
Since, the duo has produced “Rematch”, a critically acclaimed compilation released July 2, 2010 while touring North America with artists like Wale, Mike Posner, Flo-Rida, Ghostland Observatory, Chiddy Bang, Mac Miller, Sam Adams and more. Recently, DJ Griffi joined Procrast in Chicago to complete a third album, “Pandamonium”, which will debut on March 1, 2011.
“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
Joshua Teasley, better known by his stage name Flexy, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter and dancer from Saint Louis, Missouri by way of Oakland, California. He first gained attention traveling regionally with his Pop / Hip Hop group, 3oNe3, hitting 11 cities including a breakthrough performance in Panama City Beach during his spring break in 2011.
A college student enrolled at The University of Missouri, Flexy prioritizes his time accordingly. Focused on his music career, he's constantly in the studio and on the road touring while trying to balance the professors, women, Greek life and all the things that come with being a college kid.
Flexy started off making sorority songs with the most popular ones being for Gamma Phi Beta and Pi Beta Pi so the name 3one3 originated from the room that Flexy occupied during pledge-ship, but he got his stage name during high school from his friends.
3one3 is also occasionally accompanied by Bitsy who is a vocalist in her own respect and amazing guitarist. The two met in high school but didn't collaborate until college.
