The man, the myth, the legend... Touch Sensitive returns with Lay Down

The man, the myth, the legend... Touch Sensitive returns with Lay Down

An exercise in restraint and knowing when you've got some gold to release.

There is something to be said about the fact that it's been four years since Touch Sensitive released Pizza Guy. At a time when music is so easily accessible, readily available and constantly churned out, Touch Sensitive is a man who knows a thing or two about timeless music. Any DJ will attest that Pizza Guy still gets as big a response as it did upon release in 2013, and that's not something a lot of electronic music can attest to. And turns out, the long wait between singles - a staple for Touch Sensitive's career so far - is because it comes from a man only interested in putting out quality over quantity:

“I’ve always had a two or three year gap between releases, so why break the tradition now? Whenever I make something, I ask myself two questions, ‘Would I keep this in my iTunes?’ and ‘Would I show this to my friends?’ That’s really how I judge music.” And we get the feeling Lay Down would comfortably sit in many people's iTunes, happy to show off to their own friends. It's a shimmering slice of piano house, slowed down just a smidge like only Touch Sensitive knows how, giving it some room to groove and breathe on the dancefloor. If we have to wait a few years between tunes from Touch Sensitive, then we'll happily when the tunes are this good:
