Sovietpanda is a DJ in Minneapolis who runs the Too Much Love party at First Avenue every Saturday night.
In 2002, Peter Lansky started the blog Sovietpanda from the Chicago suburbs. After moving to Minneapolis to attend school, and a few months spent working and DJing at Radio K, he began DJing as Sovietpanda in 2006 and started the Too Much Love party at First Avenue. With a unique blend of forward-thinking yet referential dance music, TML and Sovietpanda took off, being named 2008′s Best Club DJ in Minneapolis by the City Pages less than two years into his DJ career.
He’s shared bills with the likes of LCD Soundsystem, The Juan Maclean, Diplo, Holy Ghost!, Mister Saturday Night, My Cousin Roy, James Friedman, Derrick Carter, DVS1, Silent Servant, and other acts and DJs from across the US and the rest of the world.
