This weekend, Australian producer Touch Sensitive will embark on a huge Australian tour – and every show is free.
Touch Sensitive is known for his upbeat productions, laced with vintage synthesisers. The laid-back house tracks on his debut album Visions from last year are kept aloft by ’80s boogie bass lines, and finished with cosmic-disco shimmer. It’s a record full of retro-leaning but forward-thinking party jams.
In the past, the producer has also collaborated with his Future Classic label mate Flume as well as remixing tracks by Rüfüs Du Sol and Umii. Touch Sensitive is otherwise known as Michael Di Francesco, and is a member of electro-rock band Van She.
The show is being put on by Corona so expect some limey beers. The beer company will be giving away free tote bags at the shows and taking donations for community groups fighting to rid Australia’s waterways from plastic pollution.
