Toro Y Moi + Clark + Michna + Slow Hands
Toro Y Moi hit the stage at Lollapalooza and most of us weren’t there BUT someone did get great footage of a new track that is absolutely wonderful, I can’t wait for this album if its anywhere near this caliber than we’re all in for one of the best records of 2012.
Clark’s new EP ‘Fantasm Planes’ will be out on vinyl early September, head over to Warp’s site for a free download. This one is really gentle on the ears.
Michna and I have djed a few times together, we would be asked to play “lounge stuff” while people walk into the event. During that time we always joked about djing under the name “Quiet Boys” and set the volume knob to 3 all night. I’m soo happy for him and his new EP, its been almost 4 years since his release and this EP is chock-full of melody and fun, can’t wait for the live show rework.
Our very own(at one point in time ha) Slow Hands has been travelling the world DJing, he’s really becoming a club favorite with his slow disco sets and i’m sure they even get more interesting later and later into the nights in Berlin. He’s about to release on Future Classic with a jam I remember him working on years back, its completely changed and sounds really opened up, soo happy for him.

I’m a big fan of Clark, but I have to get use to his new sound. Iradelphic was a hard one for me, though I must admmit this track really rocks.

That Slow Hands track has a striking resemblance to Stone in Focus by Aphex Twin. Hmmm.

Steve I think you mean Rhubarb.
Not sure how I feel about this remix/sample/ cover/ whatever. It’s cool and all but my favorite thing about the original was the ambiguous sense of time and meter. It just floated along in space. Throwing a beat under it (a 4 to the floor beat nonetheless) takes that away.

Rhubarb that’s the one. Thanks.
I guess when it’s ducked to the downbeat later in the track it works with the groove, but otherwise I agree with you.

Toro Y Moi is ear candy. Still can’t get enough of the Causers of This album.

Thanks for the article and hope to read from you again. Jakub, What motivated you to call this blog “Toro Y Moi + Clark + Michna + Slow Hands”, not that the title does not go with the content, I am just wondering. Another good post Jakub.
