Toro Y Moi Mixes Up Disclosure

A big reason why I write daily about music is to forecast what is coming in music so that I can somehow influence your opinion of new music that I enjoy. If I didn't have a vested interest in being right, I would probably post any old song that ended up in my mailbox daily. As a result, I pride myself on being on top of new stuff, but there are times when I'm like "man, I know this artist is dope, but I'm behind on his music." Case in point Toro Y Moi who has steadily developed an army of followers that I hope to soon join.

His latest creation is a remix of British electronic group Disclosure's track You & Me featuring Eliza Doolittle. For some context, below is the video for the original...

The original is probably more well suited for radio consumption, but if I was in the mood to cool out and listen to something that is smooth and relaxing, I'd go for the remix. If you aren't up on Toro y Moi, he's an graphic designer turned Indie/electropop singer, song-writer, producer who helped pioneer the Chillwave movement, which is more or less a proper name for looped synthpop. There are plenty of good reason why Toro was listed as one of the top 30 must see acts of 2013 SXSW. I know I'm going to be keeping tabs on him from here moving forward...#ToroYMoi
