The 10 Best Dance / Electronic Albums of 2015

The tour follows the critical success of his 2015 debut album Elaenia, which made our year-end list of 2015's best dance/electronic albums.

The month-long tour begins at the end of April in Los Angeles, Ca. at the Masonic Lodge. He’ll cross the continent and end the tour with two festival dates at Moogfest 2016 (Durham, NC) and Shaky Beats Festival (Atlanta, GA).
