Even though the perfectly weird Australian DJ, Touch Sensitive released his debut album last week for our hearts, not the charts, it instantly climbed to number one on EDM charts. After taking ranks above Odesza‘s latest album ‘Moments Apart’ and being fully backed by Flume, ‘Visions’ is proving to be a vital addition to your music collection. The success of this album goes to show the promise of listening to your heart.
Touch Sensitive brings together nu disco, house and future styles to build his pleasantly silky debut album.
The album opens with a tone-setting intro called ‘First Slice’, then it busts into a groovy single titled, ‘Lay Down’. Next comes a track called ‘Veronica’ which Touch Sensitive claims, “This song was called Veronica because it’s a beautiful name and a bit New Jack, It has a sample of one of my favorite house producers, Paul Johnson.”
‘Lose it All’ follows and for this one Touch Sensitive comments, “I made this in America and at the time I was going to my favorite night Funkmosphere as often as I could. On a particular Thursday night I was in New York not LA so I tried to channel one of the many feelings I’d get when I’d go there. The night no longer exists unfortunately but it’s being born again in another format I believe.” Another single that sticks out to us is humorously dubbed, ‘Mystery of Cats’.
As the album drives forward, enjoy more silky grooves, funky basslines and a unique vintage feel.

We got a chance to hear a few singles off ‘Visions’ as he opened for Flume’s sold out show at Red Rocks this summer.
As the sun set, he set the table properly for Flume to light up the night.
