The Ninja Tune veteran recasts one of Chaz Bundick’s latest offerings.
‘Rose Quartz’ appears on Toro y Moi’s fourth album, Anything In Return. The tune is a slow-burning Balearic-take on electrofunk typical of Bundick’s rejection of “chillwave” constraints.
As expected, FaltyDL’s remix is percussive, oft-kilter, and captivating. Only shades of the original remain, as he focuses on a shifty garage rhythm and wisps of Bundick’s vocals and melody. Stream it below.
Next week, Toro y Moi will head to the UK for a brief tour; those dates are below. Read John Calvert’s mixed review of Anything In Return now.
