Indie star Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend has premiered a track from his forthcoming solo EP.
Releasing under his DJ name of simply 'Baio', 'Tanto' is a million miles from his Vampire Weekend material, 'Tanto' is a tribal dance track, packed with steel crums, caribbean sounds and a laid-back, beach-bar vibe.
Signed to Roman-Greco, which is co-run by Joe Goddard (Hot Chip, 2 Bears), the influence of the label owner is evident on this progressive slice of brilliant, alternative dancefloor action. The minimal vocals are provided by Matias Aguayo.
Baio's 'Sunburn' EP will be released on 21 May, 2012. Baio will DJ at this year's Lovebox festival on 15 June, 2012. For more information visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.
