Let’s advertise art for the sake of art.
Following in a long line of prestigious Dutch DJs, local Amsterdam talent Torus looks set to usurp the throne currently shared by trance luminaries Tiesto and Armin van Buuren when he opens for Le1f at Melkweg on August 12th. Okay, okay, all jokes aside, there’s plenty of reason to be psyched for him to take the stage – the guy crafts sumptuous, organic sounding beats with a warm and distinctive personality – no mean feat in a time where all it takes to be a ‘producer’ is cracked copy of Ableton, a Soundcloud account and two spins of Donuts. Plus, when we last saw him he was opening for FKA twigs and he threw down an absolutely spectacular set that left us nothing short of electrified. With that in mind, we asked him to cobble together a playlist with this month’s theme of ‘adventure’ as stimulus.
