Hailing from Britain, living in Barcelona, and offering only press shots of girls with censored eyes, TÂCHES isn’t the easiest artist to pin down.
The up-and-coming international DJ/producer is gaining traction with his deep and digestible productions, pairing pitched vocal work reminiscent of ZHU with a more patient arrangement approach informed by European club cuts. He approached his Guest Playlist like a master chef, offering up expert serving suggestions for the five-course musical meal he prepared at Billboard’s behest.
Paul Simon – “Duncan“
“Best served sat cross legged in a large field. The heartbreaking stoicism of the pan pipes pairs nicely with wooden beads and perhaps a feather headband.”
CocoRosie – “Noah’s Ark“
“Best served while being 15 years old and superglued to a faux-leather sofa. Garnish with a Cobb salad and some gentle conversation.”
Roseaux – “More Than Material“
“Best served in a large tin cup with half a dozen sprigs of agitated mint. For the adventurous, try drunkenly screaming the lyrics at strangers out the sun roof of your car.”
Fleetwood Mac – “Dreams“
“There is certainly no specific time or place that Dreams demands to be enjoyed. Such perfection calls for no schedule. Try with slow cooked ox cheek and sweet potato.”
Brian Eno – “An Ending (Ascent)“
“Best served for 10 hours on loop. Try sleeping through it too. No operating heavy machinery while under the enofluence.”
