Toro Y Moi returns with a well defined record that focuses on synced and crisp drums, buttered up keys, house gem and half time grooves on his new release entitled Anything in Return. The album, which drops January 22nd on Carpark, covers just about every musical genre in the book but with ease and authenticity.  I was impressed with the cover art of the album which includes an interesting illustration of Chazwick Bundick, a pull out of the cd which also serves as the main piece. In an age where digital sales are vital, it’s nice to see Carpark spend good money on visuals that accompany such a musical masterpiece!  I will declare today, 9 January of 2013, this will make my Top 10 Albums of this year! Make sure to cop a copy at your record store and appreciate the lovely artwork!


Peep the single So Many Details below followed by Say That (second single)







I say it about once a month but this time I truly mean it. The first session of 2013 is one of my favorites of all time!  After a night of bomb bulgogi and Udon noodles it was time to deliver new gems ands re edits in the basement  thanks to Dj Day, J Boogie, Danny Massure and Tall Black Guy!  A few exclusives via Sweden’s Freddie Cruger and LA’s Robert Raymond Roy who delivers a soul drenched single that Im totally stoked for. We also take a sneak peak into the new INC. record that is some of the best soul music of this year!  And speaking of sneak peak, a couple of listens to the new Toro Y Moi record which sounds flawless from start to finish. Also new Dexter Story, Kirkis, Big Boi w/ Little Dragon, Waldo (Soulection), Lucas Arruda out of Brazil and so much more including tons of throw backs!

Got this in the mail. Slept on it. Saw the video. Fell in love with it. Low Fi maestro Chazwick Bundick aka Toro Y Moi returns with his signature “recorded in the bedroom” masterpiece complete with the 80’s kicks, snares and soulful key drops w/ So Many Details.  10 years ago dudes like this got robbed for lunch money. Now these dudes are running the game! I love it! Toro Y Moi does an awesome job with this video complementing the song.
