Down Under disco wonder and pizza guy extraordinaire Touch Sensitive (né Michael Di Francesco) is back with more of his immaculately conceived synth wizardry. As a founding member of Van She, Di Francesco was architect of “Kelly,” one of my all-time favorite electropop songs. He’s also made a name for himself outside of Van She as a DJ and producer, co-writing Anna Lunoe’s 2012 smash “Real Talk” and helping to define the sound of Aussie nu-disco imprint Future Classic. With “Slowments,” a rework of British sample pop pioneers Art of Noise’s 1983 track “Moments in Love,” Di Francesco extends an unbroken streak of blissful, emotive solo releases. Like his last single “Pizza Guy,” “Slowments” is a leisurely bass-driven excursion through nebulous keyboard textures and artfully pitch-shifted vocal samples. Good vibrations. Stream it below.
