Born 2016 in Bronx, NY

In early 2016 as news channels showcased relations of all kinds strained across the globe, South Bronx artist Clacc brought together four musicians from different walks of life and musical backgrounds to create Panda City. Proving once again that music builds bridges, this unit reflects a multi-racial-ethnic-musical blend that can’t be categorized in any one genre.

Panda City is: Clacc – vocals, Justin – Bass, Young E – Guitar, Mazz-1 – Drums. The name is meant to reflect the make-up of the players, a guy from the South Bronx, two schooled musicians and a NOLA punk drummer. It wasn't an intentional mix, but the foursome blend together effortlessly with each bringing something unique to the menu. 

“Panda city, in my opinion, cannot be defined. We are a group that differs in age, race, religion, and anything else you could think of. Yet, it is this very thing that makes us such an interesting group. We have no "sound" and laugh at the term "category." Our musical experiences range from Punk Rock all the way to Hip Hop and back” – Clacc

 

The band’s self-titled debut EP is unorthodox yet flows without a glitch. The song “Don’t Shoot” documents the negative effects of guns in America and how it affects us all. “Guns know no race, gender or religion.” explains songwriter and frontman Clacc.

 

2017 saw the release of a single for the summer anthem Beautiful, B-sided with a live performance in an acoustic setting. The energy of the live show comes through with the tint of the intimate unplugged feel. The single was immediately followed by the EP Bad Blocks exploring the range of experiences in Clacc’s South Bronx world.

Morphing alternative hip-hop with slow jams, rock n’roll and even a little jazz Panda City is planning to bring a mix of consciousness and musicality to the party.
