Toro Y Moi aka Chaz Bundick delivers a truly genre stretching debut album. ‘Causers Of This’ has elements of electronica, hip hop, funk and pop. The chopped and broken beats remind me of J Dilla and more recent artists like Bullion, whilst still holding a floating melody with distintice and soft vocals carrying you through the song. Standout tracks from the album for me are ‘Fax Shadow’ and ‘You Hid’. Toro Y Moi cannot be distinguished by a genre and rightly so, pushing the genre boundaries is what makes this album one of my favourite of 2010 so far. The album is out on Carpark Records now. Buy from Insound in the US and Pure Groove in the UK. Listen to on Spotify in Europe by clicking here.
