Chromeo unveils yet another single off of their upcoming “White Women” album entitled “Come Alive”. They enlists Toro Y Moi to lend his smooth vocals to a verse and the enormous and slick hook. Chromeo is revealing all their sides on this album and it keeps getting bigger and funkier.
Stream the track below and check out their tour dates for the “Come Alive” 2014 Tour.
Toro y Moi gives up a stream of “Campo” off his North American tour exclusive 7″. Toro Y Moi embraces some west coast vibes in this tune and just as Seals & Croft captured the essence of the summer in “Summer Breeze”, Chad bottles up some autumnal vibes. “Campo” offers up a woodsy and warm funk that will accompany you on all your fall strolls. You can already hear the leaves crunching under your feet.
Somehow Toro Y Moi’s “Say That” has gotten even funkier and smoother with the help of the one and only funkmeister, Dam-Funk. There is very little to say about this “Re-Freak” except enjoy and funk on.
Toro y Moi’s latest track “So Many Details” is a moody and smooth track that is really captured in this artsy, emotional, James Bond tinged video.
Toro y Moi is in the process of shedding his Chillwave shell and sprout wings that show he is a proper artist that can produce more than just lo-fi tracks. Underneath the Pine is his 2nd full length release, an album that sounds like The Whitest Boy Alive meets Stereolab/Broadcast with heavy sprinkling of boogie a la Dam-Funk. “New Beat” is the first single off the album, a highly appropriate name for a funky tune that shows that Toro y Moi is not just riding a chill wave and wants to dance.
This FACT Mag mix is seems to be a road map to how Toro y Moi came to his new funky sound, one part odd 70s funk tracks and contemporary House and UK experimental electronica.
Toro y Moi is a staple of this chillwave movement and takes on Brooklyn’s own, Body Language with a heartfelt remix of “At A Glance”, reciprocating Body Language’s remix duties on Toro y Moi’s “Timed Pleasure” which was set loose into the blogosphere a few weeks ago. Both tunes are introspective takes on each others work by highlighting what each of them do best, Body Language’s chill pop sensibility and Toro Y Moi’s ability to create filtered-out atmospheres.
The summer has faded and the fall is now upon us. In my search for some introspective/chill fall tunes I finally gave Washed Out a listen and am quite impressed. I enjoy his lo-fi, DIY electronic productions vibe that channel a smooth, musical sensibility that I feel Breakbot has pioneered and brought to the forefront of electronic music.
I just got hold of the new Bibio album (which came out in June – on Warp of course) and I am blowin’ away. It is the perfect mix of downtempo, chill, thoughtful/introspective beats mixed with some amazing guitar work that reminds me of Jim O’Rourke. I cannot stop listening to “Lovers’ Carvings”.
Enjoy these tunes on a lovely stroll on a crisp fall afternoon
