Toro y Moi

A few weeks ago one of my homegirls made me a mixtape and by doing so, opened up the gates of heaven and officially introduced me to the music of Toro y Moi [as well as a few others]. I've actually heard bits and pieces of his music over the course of the last few years, but for some odd reason I've never actually given him a chance, maybe I just wasn't ready.

Besides Cudi and Yeezy, lately I've been on a lo-fi/chillwave kick that keeps me craving things that I've never really heard before. Almost immediately after hearing his song I downloaded his album and was so happy that I actually decided to do so. His latest stuff seems to be breaking away from that strictly chillwave persona, and even as a new fan I'm actually pretty excited about that. If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend you picking of Causers of This and to also be on the lookout for the new album coming up sometime this February. ALSO, I'm jealous of both his afro and his ability to pull off those dope ass clear frames without coming off like a total douche bag. Playa's got it goin on.

Any artists you think I should check out? Leave a comment, send me an email, I'm always interested in that good good.


  1. I will definitely take a listen to Toro y Moi!

    Hmmm as for any artists reccomendations, i'll make you a list of a few songs I really like and you can check em out :)


  2. Oh wow!! I like! A lot!!! Thank you for putting me on, his sound is so fresh!

    And should check out The Foreign Exchange, Nneka, Sia, and K-Os if you have yet to listen to them. I'm assuming you've listened to Daft Punk bc they seem up your musical alley already. Also, I have to suggest the great J. Dilla to anybody and everybody. No other producer will ever touch that man's work, may he rest in peace. I hope I suggested at least one person you haven't heard from yet!

    That GOOD GOOD Blog

  3. Hey, glad to have found your blog. And thanks for tipping us off about Toro Y Moi and "Causers of This" -- exactly the vibe I've been in the past several months, great stuff. "LoFi/Chillwave", as you say. Since you like that genre too, do chect out Sebastien Tellier's "Sexuality" -- one of my fav electro/mellow albums of the past few years.

  4. When I scan my interview I did with him I'll send it to you, although in hinesight I probably didn't ask him very interesting questions.
