Toro y Moi Drops Free, Surprise ‘Samantha’ Mixtape


Toro y Moi‘s Chaz Bundick has dropped a surprise 20-track mixtape titled Samantha as a free download, just four months after the singer released his new LP What For?. “‘Samantha’ out 8-28-15,” Bundick wrote on Instagram before posting a Dropbox link routing fans to the 20-track collection, Pitchfork reports. The mixtape features collaborations with Nosaj Thing, Rome Fortune, Das Racist’s Kool A.D. and Washed Out.

Samantha features loose tracks that Toro y Moi have dispersed in recent months – “Room for 1zone,” “2 Late,” “Pitch Black” – along with a smattering of unreleased recordings that were recorded between January 2012 and August 2015 in Berkeley, California. Toro y Moi also posted on Instagram that he would perform a free show on the UC Berkeley campus Friday night to celebrate the mixtape’s surprise release.

“I’ve done electronic R&B and more traditional recorded type R&B stuff – I just wanted to see what else was out there,” Bundick said in a statement in the lead-up to his soulful, vintage-sounding What For?. “It’s all coming from the same mindset and point of creativity. It’s just me trying to take what I already have, and then taking it further.”
