I had a chance to swap back and forth a few questions with Aussie mysterious wonder kid, Touch Sensitive this past week, hoping to learn more about his emulating elusiveness. Turns out he’s quite a cool cat, humble, and has a passion for music that is truly breathtaking. With massive releases such as ‘Real Talk’ & ‘Pizza Guy’, Touch Sensitive has enjoyed his time on the top of the beatport charts, but now its time dive into the deep end, and learn a little more about the man behind the music.

Future Classic‘s own, Touch Sensitive isn’t a sound, it’s a feeling. It’s served frothy, always smooth, and imported strait from down under. With a wardrobe only to match the intricacy of his sounds, a beautiful music mosaic is formed. Ascending and descending melodies paired with funky bass will have you cruising in the sun-kissed rays in no time. It’s time to eat some pizza, get sensitive, see sounds, and listen to colors because when this tape is over, you’ll swear you might have drank a little too much of that serotonin smoothie.
Oh, did i forget to mention this is the solo project of Mikey from Van She?
Tracklisting After the Jump
The power duo, Du Tonc, made up of Matt Van Schie (of Van She fame) and Mighty Mouse, have announced their sophomore single, “Surging Memories,” today, following up their extolled debut “Darkness,” which my good friend aRod spoke about a few months ago. It’s a melodic, vocal masterpiece, driven by Van Schie’s soothing voice with live guitar, drums, and, of course, synthesizers. Du Tonc seems to be a match made in heaven, and we’re excited for their debut tour here in the US this summer. Listen below and find tour schedule after the jump. √+
Du Tonc = Mighty Mouse + Matt Van Schie (of Van She). It’s a formula that any disco or indie lover can immediately get excited about. Whether it’s Mighty Mouse giving you a lesson in disco diversity on one of his many remixes or Van She blowing your indie mind at a live show, this pairing of musical minds is a fantastic one. Somewhat surprisingly, Du Tonc takes a slightly different approach on their first track together. While their indie & disco influences can be heard on their new track “Darkness”, it’s a poppier sound that Du Tonc seem to have embraced. The result is a crooning & swooning slice of pop music brilliance. Not too light, not too dark. Not too heavy, not too laid back. Chugging along at the perfect pace, “Darkness” is the kind of stunning pop music you can listen to over and over. Well done, boys.
It’s time to set the mood for the upcoming months with the next installment of my bi-annual/seasonal mixtape series: aRod’s FallGaze 2012 Mix. The mixtape is chock full of lustful indie grooves, steamy disco + deep, sleazy house. Hot tracks from heavy hitters like Anna Lunoe, Disclosure and Van She along with some unreleased heaters from Benoit & Sergio, MANIK feat. Jeremy Glenn and Sure Thing…this mix should keep you warm and electrified from Fall all the way through Winter.
