Sydney born producer Tom Purcell, b.k.a Wave Racer has been quiet for a little while, but if you’re anything like me, you often revisit Rock U Tonite.
Released via Future Classic back in 2013, this track kick-started a new, future bass inspired sound that has become the foundation of the Australian electronic music scene ever since. The fast-paced, high-enegry production paired with an almost Daft Punk-esque vocal tweak all topped off with some vibrant visuals are the major factors that made this track so timeless and left us yearning for more.
For many of us, Rock U Tonite acted as an introduction to Wave Racer. For me personally, I first heard this courtesy of FBi Radio’s Sandro Dallarmi, who hit me with a “hey, you should check this dude out”. Sandro rarely disappoints with his musical steers, and Wave Racer quickly became a global hit soon after.
Listen to Wave Racer’s Rock U Tonite below and enjoy the nostalgia hit.
