Following his 2015 solo debut Tetrachromat, Los Angeles DJ and producer Daniel T. returns with a new album called Heliotrope, out this summer on Cascine. In contrast to the steady dance-oriented tempos of Tetrachromat, Heliotrope moves across more dynamic landscapes, all united under Daniel's sun-soaked sensibility. From the breezy bounce of Call, to the lithe cover of Tatsuro Yamashita's classic Windy Lady, he effortlessly wades into pop territory. Elsewhere, on the neon glow of Moonlight Bounce (inspired by Dan's near-religious love of roller-skating) and the ebullient Heat-Wave, his trademark mid-tempo swing shines as bright as his synths. Heliotrope is a reflection of his global taste, but indelibly filtered through his Southern California surroundings.
