The Fiero boys are back and more 80s than ever!
With a bassline that’s got more bounce than a rubber ball and some synth horns straight from a mid 80s episodes of Top Of The Pops their reMix of Chillwave dude Toro Y Moi’s ‘Still Sound’ is like a dream of the decade of FM synthesis. It’s like dry ice and flashing neon in audio form. But this isn’t some cheesy 80s pastiche I’m chatting about here, this doesn’t try to sound retro at all, it just does, aided all the more by the wailing guitar into that leads into a B-Boy beat and some shimmering soul synths.
Is it wrong to thing Toro Y Moi should always sound like this?
Y’know, those horns are one step away from orchestral stabs, and someone needs to bring orchestral stabs back right now!
‘Still Sound’ is taken from Toro Y Moi’s album ‘Underneath The Pine’
