Join Australia’s favourite pizza guy as he ignites the stage with bass in hand and keyboard in tow, promising a slew of groove-drenched hits and high energy.
Described as Future Classic’s “spirit animal”, Touch Sensitive (Michael Di Francesco) is arguably one of the country’s most beloved producers and live performers. As part of his ‘Endless Weekend’ Tour, with another stellar year of new music to come, make sure to catch Touch Sensitive’s live performance at the Triffid, Brisbane on 21 April 2019 (Easter Sunday). Returning to accompany Michael on stage is his full live band, featuring Californian funk-maker Harriet Brown.
The tour announcement arrives in wake of the well-respected producer’s latest slice of infectious rhythms, ‘G.A.L.’ feat. Daniel Wilson – the first release since his widely acclaimed debut album Visions. The full-length LP received rave reviews from Rolling Stone, Herald Sun, The Age, scored him a sold-out national album tour, and has collectively clocked over 25 million streams to date. The ARIA certified Gold lead single ‘Lay Down’ debuted at #1 on the Hype Machine Charts and landed the #31 spot in triple j’s Hottest 100 countdown.
Touch Sensitive’s inimitable ear for contemporary grooves fused with classic disco has made him an enduring festival favourite, having electrified stages at Splendour in the Grass, Listen Out, Field Day, Laneway, Mountain Sounds, Beyond the Valley, and Falls Festival. A debut US tour with his full live band last year cemented an expansion to international acclaim, following supports for RÜFÜS DU SOL and Flume and US festival appearances.
Joining him on the road and warming up the crowd across all shows, are none other than Melbourne’s own Billy Davis & Sydney producer/vocalist CLYPSO. Known for his neo-soul/hip hop fusion, Billy Davis has stamped himself as a unique talent on the Australian musical landscape, having shared the stage with the likes of Anderson Paak, NoName and Blackalicious. He will be joined by CLYPSO when she brings her signature “troppo chili flakes” to stages across the country. Having performed at Listen Out, Spilt Milk, Festival of the Sun, Lost Paradise, Meredith Festival and most recently her own Cameo Tour, audiences will soon see that a CLYPSO show is unlike any other, hyping crowds with her brand of jungle-infused troptronica & grimey bass lines.
Catch Touch Sensitive when he hits The Triffid in Brisbane on 21 April. Tickets for the show can be purchased here.
