Wave Racer‘s return to the electronic eye has been met with ardent excitement from the cult-like sector of the scene’s bubble-trap enthusiasts. The producer of retro video game-redolent soundscapes recently procured a follow-up to his first release in years, “Auto,” with “Summer Rain,” featuring hip-hop vocalist, Kwame.
A masterful innovator within his exceedingly nuanced niche, Wave Racer has curated a “Summer Rain”-themed playlist exclusively for Dancing Astronaut, chock-full of offerings from a litany of his pleasantly unorthodox and like-minded counterparts, including Cashmere Cat, Mr. Oizo, and Clairo. The playlist is meant to embody the reverie and idealism ingrained in the fundamental fibers of “Summer Rain.”
“‘Summer Rain’ is a song about infatuation and the sensations that come along with it, and these selections similarly reflect those sensations, whilst also demonstrating the ongoing shifts and evolutions of my personal and tastes and artistic influences,” says Wave Racer of his intention with the selects.
