Touch Sensitive – Pizza Guy

Apr 22 2013

The Van She electropop dynasty continues to unfold its synthy goodness, following up their 2012 album Idea of Happiness with formidable side project releases from Du Tonc (ft. the band’s bassist and singer Matt Van Schie) and Touch Sensitive (keyboardist Michael Di Francesco). The latter’s debut single “Body Stop” was one of the first releases on stellar Sydney label Future Classic, and helped to define the leisurely disco-house sound of the imprint.

Now, after collaborating with Anna Lunoe on the Beatport-topping 2012 single “Real Talk,” Touch Sensitive has finally released a couple of new singles under his own name, including the excellent slow-burner “Pizza Guy.” Surrender to a decadent melange of glittery arpeggios, fat funky basslines and chopped up vocals in this gorgeously produced track, described by a friend as “optimized for play when the sun is no greater than 10 degrees above the horizon.”
