LISTEN: Tornado Wallace ‘Desperate Pleasures’
Have you heard TORNADO WALLACE yet? He has the best beard in disco right now, and he’s churning out tracks that match the brillance of his facial hair. Today, we have a new cut to show you. It’s called ‘Desperate Pleasures’ and it’s freakin’ great.
This Melbourne based producer is back after a after a handful of singles on the Delusions of Grandeur imprint and a psychedelic house single from earlier this year on ESP Institute. Which is definitely no easy feat for any producers, let alone one from our homeland. He’s stepping it up a hell of a notch this time around though, as ‘Desperate Pleasures’ is being released through none other than Tim Sweeney‘s acclaimed label – Beats In Space.
He has also stepped up the sound on this release, as we are given another view into the evolution of Wallace. We can now see into the future of the vibes and genres he wants to encompass with his works. It’s a building track, that slowly works it’s way up from a melancholic percussive beat – before dropping into a world of distorted cello and whirling arpeggiated synths. There is a very tropical vibe across the whole of it, whilst also taking elements from 80’s pop and oriental based sampling.
Overall, it’s a chiller of a track, yet it’s one we’re sure to hear in the clubs very soon.
