Teen Daze may appear on the “chillwave” Wikipedia page among artists XXYYXX, Com Truise, and Brothertiger but this mix, along with his last two releases, demonstrate Wave Racer’s sonic expansion reaches past the useless genre designation.
His 2013 LP Glacier and following 2014 EP Paradise both point towards Teen Daze’s outgrowth into more eccentric ambient and electro pop realms. In this mix, released through Room 516 Records, the prolific Canadian DJ and producer provides an artful conglomeration of soul, house, techno, and dance music perfect for sunny listening. The mix features tracks from labels 1080p and Mood Hut—both based out of Teen Daze’s native Canada and according to his Twitter, both “labels that are soundtracking [his] summer.”
