Toro y Moi : New Beat + FACT Mag Mix

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.

Toro y Moi – New Beat

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.

Body Language x Toro y Moi = Toro y Moi x Body Language

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.

Fall 2009 Tunes: Washed Out + Bibio

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 🙂
