In the video, Michael Di Francesco (Van She) is driving a 1985 Blue Ferrari and delivering precious vinyl all around town to an all-star cast, including Jagwar Ma Flume, Chet Faker, and Van She.
This is one of those songs you can’t help but to love. The vibe is so 80s and it makes me want to watch Drive. Remember how 80s that soundtrack was? Yeah, come get some more music like that. Touch Sensitive is legit!
Classically-trained pianist, Chilly Gonzales, is known for his innovative compositions that can’t be narrowed down to one specific genre. One thing we know about him for sure is that he isn’t much of a electronic guy; prefers composing with real-time instrumentation. However, he isn’t a stranger to electronic music. His main electronic success was his album Ivory Towers which was one of his few ventures into the world of electronic music, and that album wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for Boys Noize.
In his latest interview for Daft Punk’s The Collaborator series, Chilly discusses his thoughts on music, composition, and working with Daft Punk. It’s a nice behind-the-scenes look at how he helped composed a track with Daft Punk, as well as some of the reasons behind the musical choices he makes on the piano.
Watch the exclusive interview below and dive into the mind of Chilly Gonzales and his musical genius.

It has been awhile since I’ve opened up Spotify and got lost in some music. I switch back and forth between jamming to Pandora on my phone, and then if I’m not listening to Internet Radio, I’m jamming to some podcasts or music I’ve downloaded. Nevertheless, Spotify never disappoints me in my quest for new music, and today I found a beautiful track that you really ought to check out.
The track I’m absolutely loving right now is Hackman’s “Agree To Disagree.” With minimal lyrics, this track is a beautiful instrumental exploration of the essence of opposing sounds reaching a mutual plane of existence.
Now, in case you are wondering how I found this track (as well of some of the others below,) it’s all based on a station created to the sounds of Bondax’s “Gold.” So if you want to get into this groove and create, make a new radio based of “Gold” and you’ll get lost in the zone!
deadmau5 and Imogen Heap aren’t two artists that you’d imagine teaming up on a track. Why? Well mainly because Imogen Heap, whom I’ve loved for years, has this whimsical haunting voice that tends to be paired with pianos, harps, and light electronic synths. Whereas deadmau5 is known for hard hitting dance hits. Yet, the two have teamed up for a new collaboration called “Telemiscommunications” and it’s quite lovely.
The track doesn’t have the hard hitting synths and repetition you’d expect from a track associated with deadmau5, but he proves that his production is quite versatile and he can create light-romantic tracks that move the soul. And as usual, the vocals of Imogen Heap are flawless. Light, airy, and slightly haunting the way they should be.
Accompanying this beautiful tune is an animated video that goes along with the lyrics and the overall vibes. It’s the type of video and song you’d listen to on a rainy day. It’s my type of song.
