Listen: Wave Racer - World Record feat. Lido
The announcement of the Lido collaboration also comes with a pretty hefty tour from our waviest producer.
When Wave Racer's new EP Flash Drive went up for pre-order on iTunes a few months ago, all eyes and ears were directed to the currently unavailable collaboration with Lido, titled World Record. After months of waiting, the tune was finaaaaaaaaaally released today, and is better than what we could ever wish for. It's easy to see why both Wave Racer and Lido are consistently named two of the most forward-thinking electronic producers in the market, with their collaboration World Record being like nothing else available right now. Those signature Wave Racer synth stabs blitz the single, surronded by those catchy "HEY!" samples and building hand claps. The single is obviously mainly Wave Racer, but there is that slight tinge of Lido throughout the single, including when he drops his own, more-melodic "HEY!" using his own vocals in the 50 second mark. World Record, alongside Flash Drive, will be available on the producer's upcoming EP, which is out October 16th.
That's not all the Wave Racer news for today either, the producer has also announced his return Australian tour, touring the EP this November at the following:
Fri 6 Nov - Oxford Art Factory, Sydney
Thu 12 Nov - Low Pitch @ Arcade Nightclub, Joondalup
Fri 13 Nov - Speakeasy @ Jack Rabbit Slims, Perth
Fri 20 Nov - Oh Hello, Brisbane
Fri 27 Nov - Howler, Melbourne
