What I'm listening to: Toro Y Moi

I don't know if it's because I'm getting old but I don't seem to listen to as much music as I used to.

Where do you find time to discover new artists and genres? When I was teenager or in my early 20s it seemed so easy to hear new music and artists. Today in my mid 30s it feels so much harder.

In saying this I'm still passionate about music and I still love that feeling when you discover a new artist for the first time that you love.

This is how I felt when I discovered the American singer and producer Toro Y Moi. I've been hearing him a lot listening to Gilles Peterson on BBC 6 Music.

Say That by Toro Y Moi

I decided to download his album last week and I've been listening to it everyday on my way to work.

I've always loved dance and electronic music and the album fits in perfectly with what I've always been into. If you asked me to describe his sound, I'd say it's reminds me a lot of Daft Punk, the Garage Producer Todd Edwards, and the Neptunes style Hip Hop Production of Pharrell.
