[Audio] Les Sins’ ‘Bother’

 

Les Sins

Les Sins is the occasional dance music alter-ego of Chillwaver Toro Y Moi. After a sporadic string of singles, Chaz Bundick has just announced his forthcoming début album under the moniker. Michael is out later this year, a collection of tunes recorded over the past two years, and you can check out the first track from it, Bother, below.

Bother mixes up a lazy R&B vibe with some deep deep pounding House. Kinda’ like ADSR-era Simian Mobile Disco doing Deep House, it’s all stuttering samples and hypnotic electronic grooves. Abstract and mesmerising, rather than big and melodic, Bother is definitely a tune for when they are deep in the dance, slap this on and watch the dancefloor loose itself. As precursors to albums go, this is a seriously interesting taste of what’s to come.

♫ Les Sins – Bother

Les Sins’ Michael is released 4th November.

[Audio] Grum reMixes Chromeo & Toro Y Moi’s ‘Come Alive’

 

Chromeo

Ever feel like you’ve waited your whole life for Grum to reMix Chromeo? Well wait no more, the man had taken Chromeo’s new single, the Toro Y Moi featuring Come Alive and gone massive! We’re still getting down to Le Youth’s take on the track, but this one has just gone straight to the top of our favourite tracks of the year so far list.

A swirling symphony of uplifting synths, this reMix comes loaded with so much energy that it’s hard not to get carried away with it. Blistering apreggios and rich pads cascade out of the speakers, perfectly complimenting the original’s vocals. This is a peak time, big room, floorfiller that is destined to give thousands goosebumps.

Chromeo and Toro Y Moi’s awesome new single Come Alive is barely out and the reMixes are starting to flood in. Luckily, at the forefront of the wave is LA Disco master Le Youth, himself gearing up for his new single release, Dance With Me. Expect big things when these two funky powerhouses meet.

Le Youth takes the track in a frantic old school House direction, with a hint of his Disco roots. This ones a peak time crate filler to whip the crown into a frenzy. Cut-up vocals form the original are liberally unleashed on rough synths and an infectious piano hook, which the whole combination riding over a classic 90s House beat, shuffling hi-hats and all. The reMix builds and builds, creating a hyper energy until the squelchy solo finale.

Chromeo

So, we were probably not going to post about this track, it’s over a week old and has been done to death on the internet. But, frankly, after such a long holiday we needed to ease ourselves back into things. Also, it’s fucking Chromeo and Chillwave superstar Toro Y Moi, how could we leave that alone? It’s the next teaser single from Chromeo’s forthcoming fourth studio album White Women, following Over Your Shoulder and Sexy Socialite; and frankly the most exciting thing we’ve heard from the new record so far.

Where the first two singles piqued our interest us, it’s Come Alive that really sets up White Women as one of our most anticipated released of 2014. A crystal clear slice of Disco Soul that sounds as classic Chromeo as anything they’ve ever done. Pure retro Funk Pop, Come Alive rides a wave of feel-good vintage groove, buoyant on a raft of shimmering synths and inquisitive slap bass. Chaz Bundick’s vocals nicely compliment Dave 1’s own voice as they take-turns with verses which give the track that back-and-forth feel that some of the best Chrome tracks always crafted between Dave & P. A slick-as-hell primer for White Women.

Chromeo’s forthcoming new album, White Women, is due out early 2014 and also feature collaborations with Oliver, Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and Solange Knowles.

[MP3] Shelby Grey & DâM-FunK reMix Toro Y Moi

Toro Y Moi

Two very different interpretations right here of Toro Y Moi’s Say That, one of the standouts from his recent Anything In Return album. There’s a few reMixes of this tune floating about, but these two recently released versions bring a couple of distinct flavours to the track.

First up Mr. Shelby Grey delivers a deep House groove to accompany the song. Spacing out the vocals over a laid back warehouse beat. With a synthetic, hypnotic hook, Shelby drops haunting snatches of vocal in and out of the track, driven on by an early 90s House bassline. LA Funketeer  DâM-FunK whips up a sumptuous LA Funk Re-Freak that plays on the tracks smoothness to it’s fullest and injects it with a healthy does of D-F’s raw synthesizer Funk.  Two equally good, but worlds apart takes on an excellent, soulful, tune.

Toro Y Moi’s ‘So Many Details’

Toro Y Moi

So Many Details is the first new track from leading funky Chillwaver Toro Y Moi’s forthcoming third album Anything In Return. We’ve been teased with hints of the new material in various forms recently, but this is the first official unveiling of Chaz Bundick’s new sounds.

The track is a lush, dreamy mix of Chillwave and LA Nu-funk, with an R&B sheen. Playing around with Pop structures, Toro Y Moi create something that a otherworldly and experimental, yet instantly catchy and loaded with Disco groove. Heavy synth bass is laid down in a Funk style that allows the swirly, reverb washed, electronics to swim around the track, weaving in and out of Chaz’s New Jack vocals. Toro Y Moi’s new album could be his best.

♫ Toro Y Moi – So Many Details

Toro Y Moi’s Anything In Return is due for release 22nd January via Carpark. The So Many Details single drops on 7″ single 23rd November for Record Store Day’s Back to Black Friday featuring a reMix featuring Hodgy Beats.
