Twenty-one year old Tom Purcell is WAVE RACER – a 64 bit freak speeding into the Sydney horizon.
Taking cues from cross-continental club sounds and gold-plated production standards, Purcell’s blend of pixelated future-funk is fast taking Australia by storm. From mind-bending Jersey Club anthems to a sun-drenched take on modern Hip Hop instrumentals, his sound is often (and best) described as driving down Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road to the club of your dreams.
Having just released his double-A side single ‘Stoopid/Rock U Tonite’ and a bootleg remix for Ghost Town DJs ‘My Boo’ Wave Racer is now amongst one of the most played artists for 2013 on popular Australian national broadcaster Triple J whilst frequently appearing on BBC Radio 1 and topping the indicative Hype Machine charts at #2.
With a slew of forthcoming remixes set to blow you out of the water, we strongly advise you to keep one eye on this turbo maniac at all times. Get ready to ride the .wav!
