After almost a year of near silence, Wave Racer has gone ahead and transformed Duke Dumont’s track ‘The Giver’ into an explosion of sparkling, dancing, pulsating musical glory. The thing about Wave Racer tracks is that they transport you into a video game-like world where you feel like each dance move you do takes you further and further through the levels until you’ve reached this incredible sense of achievement. As with most of his music, it could easily be mistaken for a song in the soundtrack of a Nintendo game.
This take on Duke Dumont’s track is just restrained enough to be easy listening, yet bouncy enough that it could light up a dance floor. Perfect way to finish the weekend? Yep:

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.
