World leaders, powerful CEOs, and other fat cats could learn a lesson or two from electrofunk duo Chromeo, namely: know thyself, know thy vibe, and stay thy course. The rest of the population will catch up. Indeed, Chromeo is really good at being, well, Chromeo. The mission, the package, the vision — it’s been a straight shot of pure intentionality from the jump. Funk a game plan, Montreal natives Dave 1 and P-Thugg had a ten-year battle strategy: from cult 80s fetishists on 2004’s She’s In Control to indie blog darlings on 2007’s Fancy Footwork, to international touring sensations on 2010’s Business Casual, to bona fide pop stars on 2014’s White Women. And guess what? Pee (still looking a smooth criminal in a Coogi) and Dave (ever the
Semitic/Gallic heartthrob in tight pants) are back. Early 2018 will mark the release of the Funklordz’ fifth studio LP: Head Over Heels. The album not only elevates Chromeo’s blueprint of ass-targeting beats, melodic honey and clever lyrics about the foibles of contemporary love…it augments it with unprecedented conceptual cohesion, booming sonics and more collaborations than ever before. Session legends such as Pino Palladino and Jesse Johnson (The Time, D’Angelo) coexist alongside the likes of DRAM and The-Dream on this intricate and ambitious ode to funk music, orchestrated by modern day masters of the genre. Consider the first single “Juice”, a hilarious paean to female power set to a buoyant California bop: it’s Chromeo at its biggest and baddest.
The wait is over. This week, Australian vibe-maker, Touch Sensitive, returns with his new single ‘Lay Down’, his first official release since 2013’s cult hit, ‘Pizza Guy.’
A supreme slice of Slow Motion House, armed with a swaggering bassline, syncopated synthesizers and hands that pretty much clap themselves, ‘Lay Down’ is the entree to Touch Sensitive’s debut album, out later this year on Future Classic.
“I’ve always had a two or three year gap between releases, so why break the tradition now?” he laughs. Luckily, fans have always known Touch Sensitive to preference quality over quantity. “Whenever I make something, I ask myself two questions,” he says. ‘Would I keep this in my iTunes?’ and ‘Would I show this to my friends?’ That’s really how I judge music.”
Touch Sensitive is the ultimate triple-threat; as a producer, in-demand live performer and DJ, he’s a treasured slashie for artists and audiences alike. Whether it’s remixing Rufus, collaborating with Flume or touring internationally with Flight Facilities, he’s become renowned as the man with an ear for hooks and impeccable taste.
‘Lay Down’ continues this trend, combining the sky-high falsetto of ‘80s, floor-filling disco with the rhythmic dynamism that has become a standard in Touch Sensitive’s frenetic live performances.
“It was fine line between sounding like right now and it being a bit more ambiguous as to when it was made,” says Touch Sensitive of his new material. “[Besides], today’s techniques are gone tomorrow.”
Touch Sensitive is affectionately considered Future Classic’s spirit animal. His affiliation with the label runs deep; ‘Body Stop’ was one of Future Classic’s first releases and he has played on hits for a sizeable contingent his labelmates, including Hayden James, Flight Facilities, Anna Lunoe, Charles Murdoch and Flume, his blue bass is now recognisable across many of their live shows.
With ‘Lay Down’, Touch Sensitive finally steps fully into the limelight, dancing shoes at the ready. Never has a song’s title been quite so misleading.
