Flashback: You’re playing Mario Kart, zipping down Rainbow Road. Or maybe it’s Robot Unicorn Attack in the library back in high school.
Nope, you’re just listening to “Streamers” by Sydney producer Wave Racer.
For a song without many lyrics (Hey!), he sure manages to keep this track moving. Punctuated with tasty little pauses, Thomas Purcell has created a tune just as catchy and mystical as his popular “Rock U Tonite“.
But whichever way you look at it, there’s no denying that there are some serious video game soundtrack influences in “Streamers”. And he’s really nailed it.
Purcell is bringing his own unique flavour to this genre (you can practically hear pixels flying), and will be showcasing this talent in the upcoming Disclosure tour in Australia during April and May.
