After that he started to learn playing drums for several years, which was starting to overlap with his interest in electronic music. Using computer to explore making that he quickly got addicted to it. Mainly under the influence of techno parties Panda started to make intense techno tracks. As he got deeper into different DAWs, the tempo of his tracks was slowing down through dnb to breakbeat. Producing breakbeat lead to gathering with crew which stimulated him even more, shortly after that his first track "So Help Me" was released on a Presence compilation by Pragues famous undergound club Punto Azul.
