les sins jiaolong toro y moi

In today’s news, another project that makes too much sense to be real. One March 18, Caribou’s (aka Dan Snaith) Jiaolong imprint will release a split single from Toro Y Moi (aka Chaz Bundick) side project Les Sins that is more directly dancefloor oriented than anything the South Carolina-native has released to date. Last year, Caribou donned his Daphni hat to release Jiaolong, an album that ended up on more than a few year end lists. The project saw Snaith take on analogue house and techno with a vengeance, infusing strong traditional musicality and funk samples into an oftentimes rigid, dissociative sound. Bundick’s Les Sins project isn’t as clearly formulated or direct as Snaith’s Daphni, but what it does do is highlight his affinity for immensely danceable basslines. Instead of analogue house though, Bundick channels 80’s synth pop and early 90’s g-funk sounds and is akin to Dam-Funk than anything else. So yeah, stream “Grind” and “Prelims” below and look out for the single on the 18th.
