Chances are you’ve heard of illustrious indie band Foster the People. But have you heard the music of Australian synth virtuoso Wave Racer yet? The producer has just put his signature squiggly spin on the band’s single “Best Friend”, from the album Supermodel, released this March. Keeping the tune and lyrics recognizable but crafting a remix all his own, the track stands out as a uniquely Wave Racer production.
Thomas Purcell has made a splash in electronic music this year, thanks to sweet B2B remixes with Ryan Hemsworth, and releases on Sydney label Future Classic – the home to Flume, Classixx, and a whole host of ultra-chill electronic musicians from the land down under and beyond. Having only put up his first tracks as Wave Racer about a year ago, he already opened for Disclosure this spring and has been touring the world. Vibe with the warm synthy flow of this new remix, and you’ll understand why.
