VIDEO: Toro Y Moi – You Hid
by Winston "Stone" Ford
I copped South Carolina native Toro Y Moi’s Causers of This on vinyl last week and it’s been on constant repeat ever since. The “chillwave” artist has been gaining constant recognition for his mix of low-fi beats and scatterings of hip-hop in between.
But I think what gets lost on critics and fans is the intricate nature of how his songs are produced. I’m glad this video for “You Hid,” shows some of the elements behind the recording process (it’s not just a laptop…gasp!), and I hear he’s fronting a live band on tour this week.
