Panta Rei is the stage alias of John Espling, an artist based in Lund. Although primarily a sculptor and painter, he has been playing music in some form or another all his life. He got into DJ:ing while procastrinating while working on mixing sounds for a sculpture installation. As the persona Panta Rei he makes eclectic musical journeys; the name translated as ”everything flow” and hints at the impermanence that is described within both daoism and buddhism. There is a melancholy in impermanence, but the everchanging nature of reality is also something very beautiful that he wants to celebrate through the music he plays.
