About Les Sins:
Les Sins is the dance alter ego of Toro Y Moi (a.k.a. Chaz Bundick). The two tracks on this twelve inch represent the four on the floor side of Chaz's sound. Recorded in the spring of 2009 in Chaz's home studio in Columbia, South Carolina, "Lina" and "Youth Gone" are sure to become worldwide club anthems in some totally cool alternate universe.
Toro Y Moi Bio:
Toro Y Moi is 23 year old Columbia, South Carolina native and resident Chaz Bundick. After earning a BFA in Graphic Design at The University of South Carolina, Chaz decided to push his music further now that he has more time on his hands. His mom came from the Phillipines to the United States, where she met her future husband (who's African American) in college. They lived in New York City taking in all the wonderful cultural influences the city's rising underground scene had to offer at the time (late 70s/early 80s). Deciding to slow down and be closer to family, they moved to Columbia, South Carolina where they had their first child...
Chaz Bundick's methods are constantly changing and evolving. Heavily influenced by his parent's vinyl and tape collection, he also possesses great admiration for contemporary influences like Animal Collective, Sonic Youth, J Dilla, and Daft Punk. Like most prepubescent teens, he had his punk band and once that died out, the "side project" soon became the main focus.
Toro y Moi started in 2001 as a bedroom project but quickly grew into the live performance realm. The songs are born from a plethora of different genres, from freak-folk to R&B to French House.
Toro Y Moi released "Causers of This" on Carpark Feb. 2.
Les Sins will release "Lina 12" through Carpark Nov. 9.
