From fusion to techno-pop, and techno-pop to electro-funk: everlasting longing to the late 70s to mid 80s innovative music, full of analogue and digital sounds sparking and crossing over. Symbolized by the retro-futuristic digital art of innocent future-oriented movies like "TRON", and as YMO was, Japanese culture's eclecticness mixing oriental and modern flavors. Mixing some sort of exotic flavors into breezin' tracks, San Francisco's producer duo Windsurf came up with their original west coast Balearic sound. Sam Grawe aka Hatchback and Daniel Judd aka Sorcerer, put together coastlines in 2008, and after 4 years they're back with a new album Weird Energy. Sam is the kind of guy that has that sense and knowledge of design, as he was the former editor-in-chief of "dwell" magazine specialized in modern design & architecture, a vintage synthesizer collector, and also a huge fan of Japanese fusion music. Dan was a former member of a soft rock band Call And Response that was close relationship with Feist, and now a member of a cosmic pop band SHOCK which was featured on NME right after they formed the band in 2011. This album crosses over their different back ground and stimulates a vivid visual image, from the sophisticated sound design, luscious melodies, and live instruments well arranged resonating and shedding bright light. Including 6 tracks, featuring long waited 'Weird Energy' a definite summer anthem which spread out with their self made video on Youtube back in 2009, and a mellow chill out tune 'Vapour Trails' which was released as a 7 inch from the FADER magazine label. Packaging the west coast beach culture and psychedelic culture's open air atmosphere, Windsurf will appeal in the bright sunny season coming soon.
