Fuzzed Out: Kei Toriki’s “Blue2”

I’ll cop to being really into this particular sound and atmosphere right now — a faded take on dance, one that gets labelled all sorts of things but sticks out for just sounding good. Producer Kei Toriki’s “Blue2” is a good example of everything that sticks with me regarding this style. It bounces along, every second washed in a fuzzy sound, but never sounding like an artifact. Rather, it still sounds like a track designed to get a body moving and not inspire a thinkpiece, and features enough shifts in the little details to keep it fresh for all seven-plus minutes. Listen above.
