Toro Y Moi has pieced together the new ‘June 2009’ box set, focussing on his early material.
Sit thee down, children, and ClashMusic will tell you a tale…
Once there were a few producers in the Untied States who made fuzzy electronic music, often utilising samples from the unfashionable end of the 80s spectrum. And lo! Chillwave was born, and a blog meme swept across the globe.
Except it wasn’t quite as simple as that. Toro Y Moi laboured for years as plain ol’ Chazz Bundick, working on material which had a slightly different flavour.
Now the producer – together with long time home Carpark – have pieced together a new boxset. Drawing primarily on a tour release, ‘June 2009’ focusses on a pivotal period in his work – when Toro Y Moi really came into being.
Available from April 23rd, ‘June 2009’ will be available on 7 inch vinyl box set / CD / digital formats. Grab ‘Dead Pontoon’ below…
