Toro Y Moi

Let us start by saying that Billie Holiday was one classy lady.  The First Lady of Jazz.  Her voice is iconic.  And with timeless tunes like “I’ll Be Seeing You” and “God Bless the Child,” and countless others, her music has more conceptual depth and meaning than just about every electronically produced, modern day song.  Few can argue with that.

Which brings us now to a certain Miss Holiday fan:  Chaz Bundick a/k/a Toro y Moi.  The 26-year-old producer, a young man of class in his own right, presents us with a remix of Billie Holiday’s “My Man,” which from a standpoint of respect, can be said to add to his credibility as a connoisseur of music and production.

The remix showcases the Toro y Moi we all love and appreciate – using samples and break beats to flavor the classic song with his signature synth-pop sound.  Check out Toro Y Moi’s remix here, and be sure to watch the exquisite video of Billie singing the original below.
