As Toro Y Moi, Chaz Bundick has spent his career successfully bending the boundaries of genre, practically transforming into the textbook definition of an “eclectic” and “polymath” in his near-decade of creation. Mining influences from every niche and corner of music’s significant movements, the shapeshifting artist has represented his art’s entire gamut of sounds and emotions like a painter trying to utilize all parts of the color spectrum. From psych-rock to J. Dilla-inspired hip-hop to Berghain-ready techno, Bundick has played his hand at all of it.
For our first official HYPEBEAST Mix, Toro Y Moi’s work is no different; there’s the gloomiest of electronic sounds, the California king of SoundCloud’s underground rap-cult, glossy ’80s pop, and Daft Punk. For every possible mood you might come across in your day or night, Toro Y Moi has used our new mix series to provide a soundtrack for it.
