Loci Records mainstay and ambient music trailblazer Tor is back with a complete re-work of his Blue Book album. Except this time, he's enlisted some of the industry's finest purveyors of music production to put their own spin on his highly eclectic and avant-garde tunes.
While the full Blue Book Remixed album will be released on June 9th, Tor is proud to present the first offering from the forthcoming body of work, a stunning remix of "Vaults" by none other than Florida-native, Frameworks. The abum announce comes in conjunction with Tor announcing a massive summer tour spanning from cities like Portland, Oregon to the bright lights of New York City.
Tor will also be playing under the light-strewn foliage at the magical Electric Forest Festival and has announced a performance at Shambhala Festival as well. Full tour dates are listed below via flyer/text and tickets can be purchased HERE.
Emerging in late 2012 with a sound that was all his own, Tor’s debut album ‘Drum Therapy’ was the culmination of over a decade of quietly honing his craft, merging the aesthetics of dusty samples with polished production, addictive melody and unique driving percussion. After catching the attention of Emancipator, the album became the frst release to launch his new label Loci Records and led to supporting slots on several US tours and remixes for artists like ODESZA.
Tor’s sophomore album ‘Blue Book’ was released in summer 2016 and served as the perfect follow up – a natural evolution of the best qualities of his previous work, while pushing his sound forward with new sonic palettes, ideas and tempos. It’s a record that plays like a journey from start to fnish, with rhythmic bell patterns, chopped vocal harmonies, atmospheric swells, warm basslines, and a newfound love of analog synthesizers all creating a distinctive world. Since the album’s release Tor has gone on to curate the ‘Origins’ mix series, supported Emancipator on a sold out North American tour, remixed artists such as RUFUS DU SOL and is performing multiple festival appearances including Shambhala, Electric Forest & Oregon Eclipse.
