Listen to Toro y Moi's Billie Holiday Remix

Chaz Bundick is no stranger to dance music, whether it be through the funky electro-pop stylings of Toro y Moi or his DJ-oriented side project Les Sins. The man is a master of crafting obnoxiously catchy tunes through both samples and original material. Recently Bundick contributed his talents to an exciting remix project that combines the swiftly rising genre of EDM with the revered sounds of classic jazz artists.
