Toro Y Moi

Media Title

Chaz Bundick’s a great mix of things. The 26-year-old from South Carolina’s a master of experimenting with a mix of genres and grooves. Take “New Beat,” the killer single from his sophomore, 2011’s Underneath the Pine. It deftly blends airy ‘70s AM gold with disco skronk and a little worldly percussion. Yes, there’s an element of chill to his music, and it garnered him a slightly undeserved corralling into a “chillwave” moment that was happening for a minute. But the calming subtlety of his jazzy funkiness doesn’t mean this show’ll be a hushed and quiet affair—especially from what we’ve heard on his brand new Anything in Return. With flourishes of ‘90s dance grooves and the occasional salute to DJ Shadow’s hip-hoppy sample sickness, this could be a sweaty night. The single, “Say That,” has a DeeLite-friendly bend with a hiccupy, light backbeat, and imagining this one live and loud is a pretty sweet bugout opportunity. Bundick’s delivery is so effortless and controlled, but his beats, samples and grooves are anything but. Like a heavenly cocktail of Little Dragon, Small Black, Caribou and Neon Indian, this tea’ll make the modern electronic dance music fans lose their minds. Bill Chenevert
