Wave Racer Delivers a Lexicon for Future Bass with His Debut Album

Wave Racer gets glitchy and divergent on this meta-pop self-exploration.

Wave Racer, AKA Tom Purcell, has delivered a lexicon for future bass.

The Sydney producer and multi-instrumentalist gets glitchy and divergent on this meta-pop self-exploration. Over 11 tracks, his debut album is an exercise in limited resource creativity.

Purcell purposely limited his sound sources, and with highlights like the glossy 2019-released “AUTO” and existential pitch-shifter “All That I Can Do”, he’s managed to map an interesting way forward for electronica.

The debut album from Wave Racer, To Stop From Falling Off The Earth, is out now.
