From chillwave to a slight step in the direction of hip hop, Chaz Bundick, better known as Toro y Moi has a new collaboration with Rome Fortune released on Soundcloud called “Pitch Black”. This song is giving some great chill vibes from the first few beats, and it may show the direction Toro y Moi is taking with all of his new releases.
Recently we’ve seen Toro y Moi release new material just last June on Soundcloud. Not only have we got new releases but also a new video for “Lilly”! Followers must be ecstatic about all of the new material we’re seeing from Toro y Moi. However, does the amount of work released recently mean a new direction for Toro y Moi?
By taking a step away from the chillwave electronica we are used to seeing with Toro y Moi, we might see some changes in new material. This is fairly evident in “Pitch Black”, with the new sounds and the obvious transition to a more hip hop sound. What is fun about Toro y Moi and the artists he works with are that he does not have a definitive genre, and he’s always changing up his style. This doesn’t make him unrecognizable as an artist, but instead shows the development he takes to try out new sounds and styles. It’s really fun to watch an artist play around with their talent to create some unique styles of music, and that’s exactly how Toro y Moi is experimenting.
“Pitch Black” has some dreamy chill qualities that you will fall in love with. With smooth tones and a great beat, “Pitch Black” is everything you can want it to be and more. Toro y Moi has done a stellar job of incorporating his style with something new. As he develops as an artist, these collaborations really highlight his skill and talent as a musician and producer.
We cannot wait to see the direction Toro y Moi begins to take from here on out. From live performances to releasing lots of new material, Toro y Moi has plenty to keep him busy both on the side of production and as an artist. “Pitch Black” is definitely undertaking some new elements that Toro y Moi hasn’t experimented yet with, but we’re excited to see where he goes from here. Whether it brings us new material or a new sound, the flexibility of him as an artist is remarkable and shown deeply in his work.
From the rise of the chillwave movement to developing his style continuously today, be sure to check out what Toro y Moi has in store for us with new releases. You’ll always be pleasantly surprised.
