Toro Y Moi At Boiler Room LA

toro y moi

It’s always fun to see where artists gather influence from and there isn’t a better way to go about this than listening to what they listen to. A fan can go about this in several ways: reading interviews and listening to the influencers they inevitably mention, digging into the history of the sound and/or genre they are working within, or listening to mixes (if available) that artist has mixed or curated. Combining all three is probably your best bet to get into the head of ______, but going the mix route is probably the most efficient. Chaz Bundick aka Toro Y Moi obviously gathers influence from a ton of disparate sources, belying the “chillwave” denotation often attributed to the South Carolina-native. Recently, Bundick laid down an hour long set at Boiler Room Los Angeles, laying into some classic house and more contemporary garage, all with the immensely soulful spirit he attacks his recorded music with. As always, the LA crowd is underwhelming so I recommend you download the mix below and take it with you on an excursion through the forest or something.
