I feel like I’ve been saying it for a few months now that Wave Racer was going to absolutely explode in 2014. Arguably he did that late last year via certain interweb circles, and his SoundCloud play counts signify he is no longer a secret, but the majority of the EDM world has yet to be introduced. As I predicted, and I’m no rocket scientist, this 21-year-old wunderkind from Syndey is beginning his flex this year early with a new single, “Streamers,” out this Friday on Future Classic, and he’s also announced a string of North American tour dates beginning next month. The new tune is everything we love about Wave Racer with the R&B bounce, the hook-laden overall feel, the lushness of the mix, and so on and so forth. Basically it’s great and you’re crazy if it’s not giving you feels. The tour dates kick off at this year’s SXSW and includes a mega show in Chicago with Lunice, Cashmere Cat, and Obey City. OH MY.
