Teen Daze (dj set)
This summer Baio released his sophomore solo album ‘Man of the World’ via Glassnote Records. The follow up to his debut album ‘The Names’, ‘Man of the World’ was written and recorded in Brixton, London by Chris Baio over the course of the past year. Co-produced by John Foyle and mixed by Bruce Lampcov (Bryan Ferry, The The), the album is a body of work that addresses themes of alienation, paranoia, and political will to power that are belied by airy melodies and a crystalline pop sheen.
One of his post poignant albums to date, both fans and critics have continuously pointed out the music’s unique ability to balance feelings of angst and apprehension with those of hope and optimism. Over the past few months Baio sat down with Billboard, The 405, VMAN, Relix and more to discuss how ‘Man of the World’ and its undeniable themes came to be.
«Daze's tone palette appears about as rich as anybody's working in the genre. For as much slack memoryfuzz as he conjures, Teen Daze has an eye on the dancefloor, and quite a few of these tracks sound a bit like Erasure numbers left to melt in the sun.» --Pitchfork
