Toro Y Moi
Since the release of his debut Causers of This in 2010, Chaz Bear has been associated with the so-called chillwave movement. But as Toro Y Moi, he has continued to reinvent himself, always circumventing easy classification. Bear works his magic by assembling pop collages by means of sampling, live instrumentation or both. He is a true studio wizard with a special knack for immediately satisfying, luscious melodicism. Latest footnote Outer Peace could be considered a contemporary companion piece to Daft Punk’s best work: groovy, glistening and giddy disco pop at its finest.
