Toro y Moi & Rome Fortune collide on new song "Pitch Black"

Chaz Bundick's been throwing us for a loop lately with his Toro y Moi project, thinking way outside the lines of his now-trademarked take on funk and disco.  Lately he's released a flurry of one-offs on his Soundcloud, such as the jarringly malevolent "That Instead of This," and "2Late," a psychedelic R&B cut featuring Kool A.D. and SAFE.  Now he's turned to hip-hop on "Pitch Black," enlisting Rome Fortune, who's always had a thing for working with unexpected producers.  

The angry synths and percussion that open "Pitch Black" bring one back to "That Instead of This," but things take a turn toward off-kilter funkiness once Rome steps up to the plate.  Bundick's production is just as weird and schizophrenic as Rome's lyrics and flow, yet the whole thing fits together like a jigsaw puzzle.  All of Bundick's recent Soundcloud activity has been accompanied by a mysterious tag, #samantha, could there possibly be a new release on the horizon?

Toro y Moi is currently on tour in support of his latest album What For?, check out the dates below.
